    • Allow captains of at least a dozen lines to display below slideshow photos

      Oh, I am so sad! This past week I explored a number of photo hosting sites and in every other respect, I like Smugmug the best, but this is just fatal.

      Yes, I could suggest it as a feature but even if Smugmug were to go for it, it will take some time and by then it will be too late.

      Thank you for your effort.

      Hey Bill,

      Thank you for getting back to us.

      Unfortunately there is no possibility at the moment to display slideshow…

      • Using iOS/MacOS Key Chain or TouchID for App login

        Is it possible to use better way to login the app on handheld device so that the authentication can use inbuilt security features such as Keychain or TouchID (or PearlID when it becomes available in next release) to make the user experience better.

        • Use a more discrete icon/badge for private galleries

          I am using Smugmug in a personal "lockdown" mode where each and every gallery is private. Unfortunately this means that I see the "Private" badge in the center of each gallery thumbnail. Not very pretty and kind of distracting...
          I understand that this kind of information is essential and must be displayed, but maybe you can come up with a more discrete style (like a lock symbol in one of the corners, for example).
          Thanks for the great work! Best

            Time to eliminate Adobe Flash eh? Especially given mid June warnings!

            • bring back the quick settings in the new gallery screen! It definitely streamlines the process for frequent users :)

              I loved having the Quick Settings in the "new gallery" window. It definitely made my process easier as someone who creates 3-6 new galleries per week!

              • Filter by Photos or Videos in the Organizer

                When in the Organizer it would be handy to have a filter option to only show movies within the gallery.

                Scenario: I have 1 gallery with mix of photos and videos. I want to use an easy/fast way to move all the videos from this gallery to a different gallery for movies only.

                • Allow Google Tag Manager (GTM) to be use

                  Allow smugmug sites to use Google Tag Manager (https://www.google.com/analytics/tag-manager/) as well as Google Analytics to allow the flexibility for individual sites to integrate multiple other analytics vendors.

                  • Create SmugMug scanning app

                    There are a few scanning apps out there but one that directly uploaded to SmugMug would help streamlining the process of digitizing old photos.

                    • Fix videos so they look good from the first frame

                      The first 5-6 seconds of my SmugMug videos look very bad while SmugMug's player is trying to determine the user's connection speed

                      Personally, if I clicked on a video play button, and saw the pixelated mess SmugMug is serving up, I would close the window ASAP and go look at something else. I am too embarrassed to ask friends and relatives to look my videos on SmugMug due to the poor start-up quality.

                      Amateur videos posted on Flikr, YouTube, etc. do not have this problem

                      Please fix this.

                      • Release an app for Fire TV Stick

                        It appears that you have an app for Amazon Fire TV but not Fire TV Stick. I hope you have that in the works. This is a very popular device now.

                        • Automatically expand accordion sub menu items

                          It would be nice that SmugMug "remembers" after a page load which submenu item was selected and automatically opens the top-level menus and highlight it.

                          It applies to accordion.

                          At the moment, I had to apply a CSS hack to make it work:

                          CSS code:

                          /* expand if sub menu-item selected */
                          .sm-accordion-item-has-children.sm-page-widget-nav-hasactivepage:not(.sm-accordion-item-open) ul.sm-accordion-children {
                          display: block;
                          }
                          .sm-accordion-item-has-children.sm-page-widget-nav-hasactivepage.sm-accordion-item-open ul.sm-accordion-children {
                          display: none;
                          }
                          .sm-accordion-item-has-children:not(.sm-accordion-item-open) > .sm-accordion-item-action > .sm-fonticon:before {
                          content: '\E034' !important;
                          }
                          .sm-accordion-item-has-children.sm-page-widget-nav-hasactivepage > .sm-accordion-item-action > .sm-fonticon:before {
                          content: '\E035' !important;
                          }
                          .sm-accordion-item-has-children.sm-page-widget-nav-hasactivepage.sm-accordion-item-open .sm-accordion-item-action > .sm-fonticon:before {
                          content: '\E034' !important;
                          }

                          • Allow easy deletion of unviewed galleries

                            After a number of years, I have some old galleries that are not ever viewed. I would delete these (and save you storage space) if I had an easy way to determine that they have not been viewed.

                            That is, more search terms needed in the photo views section. And a new feature next software update that includes galleries that have had zero views for a long while.

                            (btw, I've had a gallery get 70 k views in one day and then none after a while.)

                            • Ability to EMPHASISE fotos in a gallery

                              Adobe Revel had this feature:

                              give the photographer the ability to select SPECIFIC FOTOS a GALLERY, that are shown EMPHASISED (bigger - about 2 times) in a gallery.

                              Extra: To take it even further, these informations could be read from stars in the meta-data.

                              Example: Event fotos: Users tend to pick / download the 2nd or 3rd best shot! Never the BEST → If it would be shown bigger, they would tent to download the best.

                              • Keep the solid green line when showing the number of views of images. The dots are very hard to follow

                                I study the number of views of my images daily. Recently you began showing the day-by-day graph with a solid green line. In a few seconds the solid line changes to green dots for each day. The dots are, for me, very hard to follow. I would like to see you keep the solid green line.

                                • download arrow link is not obvious for users

                                  I want people to only download and save the full size images, not right click and save the preview image.

                                  To download the full size image, the tiny arrow at the bottom is way to small. Typical users for me are not aware that it's even there. They just right click and save but I want them to only save the full size original.

                                  Currently when I send a gallery link, I have to include instructions on how to find that tiny arrow to click to save the full size original. Without instructions people tend to right click and save…

                                  • Make it easier to select different sizes

                                    When I ask my visitors if they viewed the larger sizes or if they looked at the original size to see a detail they often don't know how to do it, and telling them how is too 'involved'. Could you you make this much more obvious? My stats reveal that almost nobody views the larger sizes but thousands view the standard size.

                                    • Offer [IMG] tags without being wrapped in a URL tag

                                      Right now the BBCode is a [IMG] tag wrapped in a [url] which will link to access denied page when the users' page is set to private. There should be a way to just share the image without having to be linked to anything.
