I suggest you ...

Integrate with Instagram

Using Instagram app I can take great photos that no other app (although the claims) can do that. I would like to see my Instagram photos seamlessly being synched to my smugmug as well, and vice versa. Instagram editing presets are kind of magical..! Consider integrating and partnering with them to have those effects as online editing options for our galleries, instead of the normal Auto, BW, Sepia stuff.

    Sadly Instagram has changed their policies and no longer allows sites like us to display Instagram photos outside of instagram’s app/website. While I’d love to allow you to display Instagram photos on SmugMug, you’ll have to ask Instagram to open their service back up to 3rd parties displaying Instagram photos.

        I know you can integrate Instagram with Shopify (I have shopify now, that's how I know) I don't know if you can do it with Smugmug though.

        My interest in instagram is to use instagram as a marketing tool. My son now has over 2,000 followers and this is the type of following I would like to have and be able to direct the followers to my smug mug galleries. I would want to directly use a unaltered photo from my galleries and post to instagram to use as a marketing tool. From the post I have read most everyone wants to be able to do this easily. I have no desire to use instagram filters, I just want the world to see my photos. WWW.tbowen.photography

        A social link to INSTAGRAM so i can post pictures directly from my SmugMug galleries .Why is this not an option ?

        aaron (Director of Product Management, SmugMug) asked "Is this request to add Instagram style filters to our photo editor?"

        For me, the answer is a big NO! It's not the filters that are important, it's the ability to share the photos that I uploaded to Smugmug to Instagram seamlessly, like I can with Facebook. It's clearly technically feasible, since I can do it by downloading the photos to my local drive and then uploading them through Gramblr or some similar app, but there's no reason it needs to be that awkward.

        And make text selectable/copyable in iOS smugmug app so I can copy/paste it in Instagram app. Now I've to go to smugmug in safari to get access to the text.

        Yes - agreed that Instagram should integrate just as you have done with Facebook. A 2-way street.

        Instgram is a photo-centric app and so is SmugMug. Its a no-brainer marriage! In addition, my 15 year old daughter (and most of her generation) do not use Facebook or Twitter. They use Instagram every day (...most of the day in fact) so this is obviously a huge market. Right now my daughter uploads to her photo roll and then posts to Instgram. Its a needless double step and only results in using more of her phone's storage thereby creating a "double-storage" waste between her iPhone and SmugMug.

        yes please! as another person has commented, my kids are also addicted to instagram, and they want to post some of my photos from smugmug

      • QuentinPQuentinP commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Yes please!! I want to be able to select photos in my albums and have them shared from there to Instagram. I don't care if the photo goes across (or what resolution it is) or whether it's a link with a thumbnail.
        All the best
        Quentin

        I would like at least one way, i do my work on PS, and upload to smugmug. I'd then like to share from smugmug to both my FB and instagram account. would make life much easier

        Still a relevant request almost three years later. Almost all your competitors have this feature. Definitely a selling point.

      • MicaellaMicaella commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        My particular situation is that I have clients who want to share photos in their galleries by downloading on either their iPhones or Droids. Would be so awesome to see Smugmug do the same GREAT integration as they have done with Facebook. I'm sure it's just a matter of time, you guys always seem to listen to us and try to add whenever possible!
