  1. View stats in spreadsheet format

    I now have 60+ galleries and although I can see the total usage or the detailed bar charts it's harder to get an idea of viewings across the site. Is there any chance of providing a spreadsheet type view (and/or a download option) showing the same data but so the traffic on all the galleries can easily be compared?

    • Allow Customizations to be Uploaded and Downloaded

      The customizations to email feature is a great start, but what would be the icing on the cake is the ability to upload that file and it automatically read in the customizations in that file. The file format would probably have to be changed to XML, but I think this is really doable. Plus, it opens the doors for developers to have ready-made styles for SM that a user can just upload to their change and change and be ready to go!

      • Use my custom theme for sharing page

        Smugmug is not yet a completely white-label solution for pros. Can we remove the smugmug branding from these pages too please :)

        • Make A Blog Tool In SmugMug

          We already have the journal style, but let's have one that looks just like a blog. Add one picture and then allow title, text, date, time, etc so that it looks just like a blog entry.

          • Choose multiple images for Share tool

            I like to share a handful of images from my sessions and weddings in my blog and on dgrin. I have to "get a link" for each image and go back and forth between the gallery and get a link page, while copying the link, switching to my blog page, pasting the link there...and then back to the gallery for the next image.

            It would be so much easier to have a "get multiple links" option. It would take you to a menu of images much like the "move to gallery" option does. I'd like to be able to click…

            • Change the name of the viewing styles to be easily understood

              The style name "Smugmug" has no meaning to people, and is also branding that pro's strive to remove. I would suggest new descriptive names to some of the viewing styles... for example "Smugmug" to "Partial Thumbs", and "Journal" to "Large Images"

              • Allow sort of the Galleries in Stats by visits, views

                I have a fairly large number of galleries, and I'd llke to be able to sort the statistics view by different criteria, e.g., Alpha order, MB Transferred, View counts (perhaps by size). As it is, it's hard to find the gallery I want in the list, and usually, the one I want is the "busiest".

                • Allow us to change default tab in "Buy this photo" and default item in "Buy Photos in this Gallery"

                  Provide the ability for Pro users to change the default tab that is shown when a customer chooses to "Buy this Photo" or the default item if they choose to "Buy Photos in this Gallery".

                  I have had several customers indicate that they did not realize that they could not download the digital images, and that they would have purchased more images if they realized that they could.

                  Defaulting to Digital Download would resolve this problem and hopefully result in additional sales.

                    • Improve ShareGroup navigation

                      For frequent users of sharegroups, it is a hassle to go to the control panel each time. Could we have a homepage option for sharegroups? Options such as "Create new Sharegroup", "Add Gallery to sharegroup", and "Goto sharegroups" would be very helpful from our homepage and also from within galleries.

                        Have you thought about bookmarking the sharegroups link? :)

                      • Allow only a few images on locked galleries

                        Allow only a few images to be seen on a password protected gallery. I feel some clients do not buy if they can tell the world to look at the photos on our galleries. So if they went in and saw a few images they would be more motivated, because now to show them to people they would have to buy the in a certai time period. Thanks and kudos on a great job.

                            Box.net is great for getting people to send photos to me. It would be great if i could then just send them straight to Smugmug without uploading and downloading

                                • Image Packs for Screen Savers & Backgrounds

                                  I am in the process of putting together a new offering for my customers where they can choose a pre-packeged set of images to use as their computer backgrounds and screen savers. Another take on it would be to let them build their own image pack based on images that have been tagged as available for screen saver and background packs. I was wondering if SM had considered making that an option?

                                  • Add pagination for top-level list of galleries.

                                    SmugMug should add the ability to have a user's top-level list of galleries paginated. To see an example of a site where pagination is needed:

                                    http://gallery.prwdot.org/

                                    As you can see, I have one section on my page, "Galleries". This is a single long page section that keeps getting longer the more and more galleries I add. I don't like how long it takes that page to load, so I'd prefer it if the page was broken up into several smaller pages, with a Prev/Next indicator and links to individual pages.

                                    SmugMug already does this in the individual gallery pages themselves,…

                                      -making the thumbnails move automatically when it comes to the end of the row

                                      • Group People in Address Book

                                        I want to group people in address book for event and make available to send email to whole group as well as individual. Now I can send one invitation to multiple but I can't see who clicked or not.

                                        • MacDaddy Create Multiple Galleries

                                          This is from a customer, sent into our help desk.
                                          The only suggestion I have is for the macdaddy tool for mac os x. Maybe there's a very good reason for not having this, but it would be great to upload to more than one gallery at once. Just to maximize efficiency, so when I have several galleries and I won't be home for a few hours, they might be all done without checking in. Just a thought!
