  1. 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 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.

      • Allow users to email ecards through the share button

        Would be cool if we could allow users to send e-cards to friends and family using the photos

        • 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.

              • Create api app to send photos from Box.net to smugmug

                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,…

                            • Ask for first and last name in password request email (Ack, I need a password)

                              I love the functionality but I have one pet peeve with this email. Please add a line that includes the name of the person requesting the password and make them fill it out.

                              I get password emails from people whose email address gives me no clue who they are. This makes it very difficult to figure out whether they should have access to the gallery.

                              Make the first line your name (First and last) and then leave the second line the email address. Place the name in the email.

                                      I am using one of the templates from SmugMug for my site. There is alot of unused space on the right and left sides of the site. I would like to have away to add affiliate Links in this space.

                                      • Offer super-simple thumb+link code for me to use on my web site - and lose the Flash

                                        I'm a recent picasaweb emigrant, and one of the few things I liked about that service was the one-click copy a thumbnail and an href back to the photo's page on the gallery. I used this several times daily on my personal website. The code sat right next to the photo, so I didn't have to go to an extra page. And in this case, the linking tool inexplicably uses Flash, and I have FlashBlock (and will, forever), so I have to click to start the Flash on top of clicking to a separate page. Given that linking to a…

                                        • Allow Javascript per theme

                                          Allow pros to create javascript per theme so it's possible to create different functionality depending on the theme. I realize not many people probably use multiple themes throughout their site, but for those that do it's a huge hassle if you want to use JS to add/move/remove elements or functionality.
