User email distribution list that notifies user when new pictures are added to a gallery

I would like the ability to set up an email distribution list for individual galleries. Whenever new pictures are added, an email is sent to the distribution list. This would be very helpful for pictures I post that family and friends are interested in seeing.

        This would translate in to more revenue for Smugmug as well! A method to capture and/or "opt in" to a notification/distribution list would be a plus plus!

        It would also be nice to notify my customers if a new gallery has been added to a particular folder. Great idea.

        I start promoting to accounts months in advance of a session. Using a system like Mailchimp and a signup system allows me to send an email once the photos are online but... and as *** Wee Herman once said, "...and that's a big but" automatic email notification would be incredible. I was with Photoreflect years ago and they had that feature built in from the get-go. Yes, put it in. No brainer.

        Great idea. I would like users to be able to sign up for this notification themselves. Would need to give them opt-out ability as well when they receive the email.

        Totally agree! Just basic funtionality of being to create and maintain a distribution would be a big help! Email notification would be awesome!

        How does this not exist already??

        I also tried to connect feedburner to the RSS feed and it hasn't worked for me. Maybe user error, but you shouldn't have to do that to get updates.

        It's difficult to explain my move to SmugMug to my photo friends and followers, as they are all upset that they will no longer receive an email when new photos are added to my account, as they do now in Flickr. The amount of pressure I am receiving from them to stay at Flickr has me seriously considering doing so. SmugMug must include email subscription to an account (not just a gallery) in order to satisfy viewers.

        It would be great to have an ez way to a distribution list made up of all the emails sent out in the present year. That way, when it comes time to offer a promo for the holidays, it could be easily pulled up and the promo info sent out. Thanks!

        It would also be nice if visitors can "op in or op out" with their email. This can be added to the downloadable spreadsheet.

        Well I have an idea... it's certainly not a solution to the lack of data mining. But... what I've started doing is creating a holding gallery with an image that says "coming soon". Then I drop a wufoo form at the top of it that says "enter your email to be notified when pictures are available". It's a dirty fix for PART of the issue. but not a solution.

        We would like the ability to export the the registration information so that we can create distribution emails for various purposes, and for creating contact lists, etc... Unfortunately, the only current way that we can get the email information is to click on the share email button in the event list for each and every user :( We also support the original idea that managing events could be much better if we had the ability to allow users to register their email for notification of availability...
