        • 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.

            • Allow cusomizers to easily move the cart buttons to other locations; e.g., to a menu bar,

              Right now the cart buttons are somewhat static. Moving various elements on the screen can cause the cart buttons to be hidden. Sometimes this causes issues with older browser version which are still used a lot.

              I would like to be able to move the cart buttons (or any yui button) to other areas or to the menu-bars that people are using a lot.

                • Request Gallery Download on Smartphone

                  No FULL Gallery Download on smartphones.

                  When yourequest a Gallery download
                  NOTHING IS ACTUALLY DOWNLOADED on ANY device. Instead a ZIP file is created in the background and an email is sent when the ZIP file is ready.

                  So I should be able to request the generation of the ZIP from ANY device.
                  The email sent when the file is ready that includes the link SHOULD say that
                  ZIP files are NOT supported natively on Android or iOS, also that the ZIP file can be quite large (1gb or so). The user should
                  either download the link on a computer…

                      • Effectictive use to watermark

                        1. Currently, once a .png file is uploaded, SM takes the size of
                        watermark and displays on all pics, in such case water mark looks huge and also on some vertical pics and cropped pics.

                        2. If SM does a algorithm like Lightroom where , the watermark can fit a user defined % on a pic, e.g I want all my pics to have 8% of space used for logo.The watermark will more pleasing then on ur face.

                        3. Also an option of, opacity of watermark.

                        • Show password when typing

                          When using the Smugmug App on my Android phone... when logging into an account there is an "eye" icon on the password input line. Touching it lets me see my password as I type it instead of dots. Could you also have this option when typing in passwords for regular galleries? The "keyboards" on phones can be very small and having the option to see what you're typing can be very helpful. Thanks!

                          • SmugMug Android App should work on Android TV's.

                            TV's are a great place to view photos, right now the app doesn't ever start. TV just comes up with "SmugMug has stopped".

                                  • First 10 images in every gallery available as samples. Password on the rest

                                    My wishlist for future updates to the smugmug Portfolio Plan. I'll explain as follows.
                                    I have a samples gallery that I add portfolio images to... with every new job I assess if there are images o add their.
                                    I also use my site for presentation to new clients.
                                    , and constantly updating outdated images in my sample/portfolio gallery. to me its a common pact rice found on other platforms almost as a standard web option. I don't like Squares in my Space and dont want to look for Wix in my hair...

                                    I would love the ablility to still have…

                                    • add an FAQ style option in text box

                                      Here is a link to a style of page (or text box feature) that would be great to offer. https://www.ianjohns.com/faq/
                                      There is a series of questions and a “+ next to each question that you click to answer.
                                      I think it’s a great style for FAQ.

                                      I don’t have any idea whether this is easy or hard for you to add as a feature in text boxes.
                                      Please pass it along as a serious suggestion.

                                      Example: https://www.ianjohns.com/faq/

                                      • Add a social media feed

                                        You really need to add the ability to show a live social media feed on the site. This is billy basics for any business website, let alone a photographic one.

                                        You guys even have a 'FB Like' Button on your homepage!!

                                        • Action-on-click option to have a slideshow or lightbox open

                                          I would like to see another option in the multiple photo content block - specifically in the "action on click" drop down. It would be nice to be able to use the collage landscape feature and have the ability to choose another option where one can have a mini slideshow or window pop up where a larger version of the selected image can be viewed by the client. I understand that there is currently an option to set up something similar to this would be to open it in a lightbox window. Problem is, I don't want the client/viewer to…
