  1. Default sorting by filename for Folders

    Is it possible to change the default sorting order to sorting by "filename" instead of capture date for FOLDERS? It would make uploading files to the folders so much easier and save time from having to sort the folders and sub-folders to filename after the upload. Thanks!

    • Enhance your API or allow folder syncing from our computers

      Today you allow to drag and drop a folder and the subfolders are created as galleries.

      We need a way to be able to select a folder in our local computers (Mac and PC) and that the whole folder structure gets synced to SmugMug.

      Folders need to get created as folders. If the next level is a folder with pictures the this needs to be created as a gallery.
      If the second subfolder is just a folder then it should be created as a folder too, this way the file structure would be respected.

      We need this so we can…

      • Create an up to upload (edited versions) photos from ON1 Photo Raw

        I could stop using Lightroom CC if there was an app to upload edited photos from ON1 Photo Raw. If it worked the same way the app works in LR CC, that would be great.

          • Skip Duplicates for Folder Uploading

            It sucks to have to delete 60+ folders (or a majority of folder), then have to upload them again, watermark them again, then make them public. Time is of the essence when people want to view and order their photos. Both of us lose sales when people cant see/order their photos.

            • Auto-Upload to SmugMug when new photos added to Dropbox

              Automated hot-folder type function from Dropbox to Smug.
              I use an event software that will upload images automatically to Dropbox then I can transfer the images after the event. It would be great if the images would automatically transfer as they are created allowing event guests to view and download the images during the event.

              • Guest Upload via SMS

                Like auto-BCC emails, it'd be nice to include an SMS number in a group text so all sent media gets uploaded to a specified location.

                Example: Mom, Wife, Cousin, and I are in a group text where we share family photos and videos. Everything in this group conversation should be uploaded to my SmugMug "Family" gallery.

                Even better, it'd be nice if the app could "read"/"watch" specified text message conversations and upload it without needing to remember to include this "stranger's" SMS number.

                • Fix Bug: Upload Window Opens From Browser Window When Logged Out

                  I'm uploading images while traveling, and sometimes SmugMug logs me out from an open window after some time frame. Not a problem, however, the Upload Window still opens as if logged in, and after uploading images and waiting the entire time of the upload before finding all the images marked in red with "Login Error".

                  It would be good if the Upload Window wouldn't open when the user is automatically logged out by SmugMug. Doesn't sound like a big deal until you're doing batch uploads of 100 or more images, then find out after that you're not logged in and…

                    • Please add option to import from Google Drive

                      You offer the ability to import from Google Photos but not from Google Drive. Google Drive makes it easier for me to organise photos and to import from here will help a lot.

                      • Ultra high resolution panarama photo capabilty (500+ MP)

                        I have a few photos where I have stitched 50+ photos together to get an ultra high-resolution shot. An example is a shot that is 25000 x 8500 pixels (~212 MP). With cameras coming out with higher resolution, namely the canon 5DS (50 megapixels), stitching just a few photos together will exceed the current restrictions enforced by SmugMug.

                        • Guest Upload: Identifying Information About Guests Who Upload

                          Hey SmugMug! I'm developing a user submission system for my fraternity brothers to upload their own photographs, videos, and social media posts that they capture at our events. The purpose of this system will be so that I can collect them for official chapter publications, like in videos and for galleries that I'll be creating.

                          As you all know, this method is a lot cleaner and easier than the other alternative of emailing photographs to a central email that everyone has to remember. My complication right now with the guest uploading system is that I can't tell who is uploading…

                          • Guest Uploading - to an unlisted gallery - add a custom "You Are Finished" page

                            Currently when a Guest finishes uploading to an unlisted gallery, and they click "Done", they are redirected to SmugMug's "Unlock Gallery" page. Can Smugmug allow us to create our own redirect page? Something like a "Thank You For Your Submission" or a "You Are Finished" page. Our goal is to hide all of the photos that guests have uploaded until all of the Guests have finished uploading to the Gallery and we are we are ready to "unveil" the complete gallery. A nice "Thank You For Your Submission" or "Congratulations, You Are Finished Uploading" page is nicer to be redirected…

                                    • Skip duplicates in different galleries..

                                      Hi after uploading I moved files to other galleries... to sort them by category. Problem is the upload stopped at about 80%... but now I can't use the skip duplicates feature to continue from where I left of..

                                      But if there was an option to skip duplicates across your whole portfolio then this would be really handy!

                                      • Add email notification when photos and/or an entire gallery have been uploaded

                                        Im always on the go, so I don't have time to keep an eye on the status of my gallery uploads. Once I paste all my files to the upload questions, I am left wondering when My gallery will be officially ready for presentation.

                                        I would love there to be a feature that lets me know when all of my photos have been uploaded.

                                        • Add Verizon photos as an upload source

                                          Hi, the google upload option is a great feature.
                                          Can you do the same for verizon photos? I want all my photos on Smugmug forever.

                                          Thanks and great job
