  1. Hide Multiple Photos at a Time / Be able to easily see hidden photos

    We all want to hide multiple photos in a gallery, but you should be able to look at those hidden photos separately and make changes accordingly. This will help users become more efficient and prevent errors when editing proofs.

    We need this on the mobile app too.

    • Allow duplication of smart galleries

      It takes multiple steps to create my smart galleries since I have 2 sets of keywords to curate my images in the gallery. We need the ability to duplicate a smart gallery so the rules are in place and I only have to change one of the keyword sets to save my gallery.

      Otherwise, I have to create my gallery, apply quick settings (which will NOT save any smart gallery settings/rules), save the gallery, then edit the gallery again to apply the smart rules.

      There has to be a simpler way to do this. Making 40 galleries like this for…

      • Remove Limits on number of Files in a gallery

        Currently there are limits on how many photos I can put in a gallery or smart gallery. I would love to have this limit removed so I can organize my images the way I want to. Especially in smart galleries it's very annoying.

        • Add a 'Filter by' function to image galleries.

          I often see an option in more modern website templates, (wordpress etc) where you may have a large gallery of EG flowers, but you want to help visitors to easily see and choose between types. The gallery can be populated with preset titles, (that act like clicking on a keyword) view Red Flowers, Purple Flowers, Yellow Flowers, Blue Flowers, Most Popular or View All. Clicking on any of these options will quickly clear all images from the screen except your chosen colour.

          • Quick setting work around

            Just come across this and to date still don't think this has been attended to. I have a number quick settings and 2 that i even managed to save with the same name after tweaking the entries. Having read all this and until a fix is hardwired in I think I'm going to create "yet more" quick settings but A, I'm going to document them (PITA but what else can I do) and B, I'm going to name them by a date version (example: Friend share 24.06.18 That way, If I do minor tweaks, to correct things that i should…

              • ORGANIZER: Identify source of collected image

                I would like 2 related things:
                1. Within Organizer, when I'm at a source image, I'd like to know if it is used in any collections; either the # of collections it is used in, or (ideally) the actual destination galleries.

                2. Within Organizer, I know that for a collected image, I can tell (from the little curved arrow) that is not a source image; but I'd like to know from whence it originated. (yes, I realize at the site, I can see in the bottom left corner the originating gallery - at least, while using some Gallery Settings; but…

                • allow subsites

                  My Phanfare photo site allowed me to easily create subsites, discreet, viewing pages with no breadcrumbs up the ladder to my main site. Vital for me, as I use my photo site for both family and professional purposes, with lots of photos shared between each.

                  Since migrating to SmugMug over a year ago, I'm unable to easily set up this important facet of my site. And while I've found work-arounds, it's enervating having to trick SmugMug into allowing me to do what I need to do with my site.

                  I've written this suggestion before, as have others. Without the addition…

                  • Multi-select photos for deletion with Control + click

                    Enable selection of non-sequential photos in a gallery by holding down Control and clicking. This is a common multi-select in operating systems and browsers. Would make it easier to clean up galleries.

                    • two way sync with dropbox

                      I use Smugmug's Folders and Galleries to organize photos and videos by date and occasion, and make an attempt to have the SmugMug file structure mirrored by the file structure on my PC in a Folder (with many subfolders), called "Organized Photos". However it is vastly easier to organize photos on SmugMug because of the ability to see the results, than on the PC. In order to keep organized, I have "shoeboxes" on my PC (often in Dropbox too) which are folders into which scans and camera pics are put as they occur, then migrated and organized in SmugMug, and…

                      • Option to delete collected photos from all locations

                        Redesign the "Delete Photo" function so that any selected photos have the option to be deleted just from the active gallery or deleted globally from all galleries.

                        Example:
                        "Delete selected from this gallery"
                        "Delete selected from all galleries"

                        It is cumbersome to chase "Collected" Versions and "original" versions when culling you galleries

                        • bring back the quick settings in the new gallery screen! It definitely streamlines the process for frequent users :)

                          I loved having the Quick Settings in the "new gallery" window. It definitely made my process easier as someone who creates 3-6 new galleries per week!

                            Undo a gallery sort. Say I've been manually sorting photos in a gallery, but want to try one of the predefined sorts, like sort by date taken. If I don't like that sort, I'd want to go back to my manual sort. Right now, no way to do that.

                                  Now that you've enabled uploading of folders and everything under that folder (whether it's another folder or pictures), I think another great extension is to allow the collect feature to operate similarly at a folder level

                                  • display a warning when deleting an original photo that is used in collections...

                                    I suggest that whenever an original photo is to be deleted, a warning is displayed that states that 'this photo is collected in 3 galleries"..."do you still want to delete?".... Also, listing all the galleries where it appears would be nice.

                                    Additionally, may want to display an icon on the "original" photo that indicates is it collected in another gallery (the collected ones show an icon, why can't the original)

                                    Thank you...

                                    • Consider my "fix" for scrolling in ORGANIZE

                                      Dear SMUGMUG,
                                      I’m a new user and I’m frustrated with one behavior in SM that makes it very difficult to organize multiple albums into folders. I’ve inquired from your Support Staff about this and their answer was essentially, “That’s just the way it is.” Well, I want to suggest what I believe to be a BETTER way. I’m not certain this can be programmed, but I hope you will consider my suggestion:

                                      THE PROBLEM
                                      Under ORGANIZE, when dragging a long list of albums into what may be a fairly long list of parent folders, the scrolling is so fast that…

                                      • Allow Visitors to Rate Photos, then Sort Galleries by their Rating

                                        Please offer a sorting and rating system. It would be great if as the clients are looking through their images they could rate each and then sort by the rating. This would make it easier to cull through the images. I know that they can click on the stars, but it doesn't seem like they can be sorted.

                                        • Show folder hierarchy in link to collection original

                                          In lightbox of collected photo, you show link to original source gallery but don't show the folder hierarchy.
                                          Instead of showing
                                          From smart
                                          assuming it was inside nested folders, it would be better to show
                                          From folder/subfolder/smart
