  1. Generate downloadable csv file for My Order Receipts for Pro Members

    Pro members often initiate larger orders from multiple clients.

    While the orders can be viewed under Account Settings/Me/Receipts, there is no way to download the listing as a csv file to track for accounting purposes. Please add this feature to be generated for a specific date range for both summary and full detail listing.

    • Add keyboard shortcuts used during image viewing

      The existing shortcuts are great. I'd love to see a few more to be used while moving through viewing images in a gallery:

      "i" to toggle the Info display on and off (already requested, I see)

      "f" to select "Fit" view.

      "c" to toggle captions on and off.

      • Why don't you make it easier for non-Smugmug users to make comments on photos.

        I email friends by photos on Smugmug but hardly any ever make comments using the comment icon at the bottom right of the photo. If they make a comment, and many do, they just email me the comment.
        Why don't you make it easier for non-Smugmug users to make comments on photos. The comment section could be more user friendly and it would be used much more by friends to visit Smugmug.

        • 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…

          • Send custom download links to clients

            It would be so much more flexible if it were possible to send a download link directly to a client.

            1. Open the image organizer in the browser, or open the SmugMug app on your phone;
            2. Select images, or an entire gallery;
            3. Select the maximum image size;
            4. Check a box if the images should be converted to sRGB;
            5. Enter an email address and hit send, or copy a share link.

            A communications person at an NGO who wants an image for their email newsletter requires a different treatment than a magazine photo editor who requests a…

            • Lightroom Plugin should watch for changes in IPTC Headline field

              SmugMug correctly displays the information from the IPTC Headline field as an image title on websites, and the SmugMug publish plugin synchronizes this field when an image is re-published.

              However, the SmugMug Lightroom publish plugin doesn’t automatically mark photos to be re-published when the Headline field is changed. It does this only for the ITPC Title, Caption, and Keywords.

              For context:

              This seems like an oversight that was easy to make because Lightroom doesn't show the Headline field in the default metadata view.

              So why not just rely on the Title field? Well, the Headline field is often more appropriate,…

              • 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.

                • Create a shortcut to the end of a gallery

                  I love the Up arrow that you've created to get back to the top of a gallery, but it would be awesome for you to create a Down arrow to take you to the end of a long gallery instantly. As of now, you have to scroll and wait, scroll and wait, etc.

                  Thanks for your great website. SmugMug is awesome!

                  • 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!

                      • Integrate with Adobe Photoshop Elements 2018

                        Now that Lightroom has a subscription requirement it is too expensive. Could you add syncing with Elements? And I've heard about a product called Lumina 2018, that product may also have potential as an alternative if it had syncing with SmugMug.

                        • An idea to help users apply custom watermarks to their images

                          Is there a way to widen the dropdown list that displays when trying to add watermarks in a gallery. I have several watermarks (almost 60) and it would be nice to give more descriptive names if that dropdown was wider. Right now it only show roughly 10 0r 12 characters; 30 characters or so would be so much better for me.

She is gone now and I've been 'tasked' with making sure the photos are shared but once scanned…

                                  • Offer specifically Facebook-size Downloads

                                    I would like to see a size in "all sizes" that is specifically suited to Facebook's preferred image sizes.

                                    Many of my clients wish to post their images to Facebook and as we all know FB compresses and destroys image quality of any image posted that doesn't conform to their very specific size (2048 along the longest edge)

                                    In "all sizes" could be have a size that conforms to this?

                                    • Don't ruin my site with folders I don't create that can't be deleted

                                      I can't believe I actually have to suggest this but...

                                      Don't create new folders - "Cover Images" and "Profile Images", plop them right in the middle of my home page so I can't see the site I've designed and need to stare at these empty boxes, and tell me "They can't be deleted or changed" and "Unfortunately, there is not a way to hide those galleries or move them "

                                      • studioninja intergration

                                        Would it be possible if you can work with Studio Ninja which is a CRM for photographers.
                                        They have an online form, can you allow them to embed their form or you both create an API to integrate so we can embed their form to our websites.
                                        Why?
                                        Because when a potential client fills out the form on my website, it automatically integrates with my studioninja crm and the whole workflow is then activated on my side at a touch of a button.

                                        thanks

                                        • "PROFILE PHOTO" serves too many purposes for just one image

                                          We need to have two different "profile photos". One is a picture of ourselves which gets used where a very tiny icon is needed. The other is large, it's used in social media when our URL is presented such as on the Facebook timeline. Right now I CANNOT USE MY OWN BUSINESS URL ON MY OWN FACEBOOK TIMELINE BECAUSE IT JUST SHOWS A PHOTO OF ME!
