    • make it possible to use a smugmug gallery as the Apple TV screensaver

      Now that the smugmug iOS app works on the Apple TV it would be great if a gallery could be selected as a screensaver - either from within the app or the Apple TV settings.
      While downloading the images to a linked desktop would work that limits the flexibility in choosing a gallery for a screensaver.

      • Option to allow event participants to download just their selected favorites

        When I create an event for clients they have the ability to "Favorite" the images they select. Currently they do not have the ability to download just their favorites. It's download the entire gallery or just one at a time. As an admin I can generate that download of just their favorites, but can we remove me from that and allow them to directly from within their access?

          Images that are already assigned right-click protection within their respective galleries are not right-click protected in search results. Please amend this, immediately!

          • Make BBC code available to copy and paste from the app. Easier to post pics from your phone to forums

            Makes BBC code for pics available to copy and paste in the mobile app. That way you can easily post pics on forums without having to carry a computer around with you

            • Show folder hierarchy in link to collection original

              In lightbox of collected photo, you show link to original source gallery but don't show the folder hierarchy.
              Instead of showing
              From smart
              assuming it was inside nested folders, it would be better to show
              From folder/subfolder/smart

              • Allow Folder Uploads to Merge if the Folder already exists

                When uploading a folder structure - I might get the message that the folder already exists.

                Please add an option to merge the uploaded folder with the pre-existing one (like the skip duplicates options in gallery upload)

                  please please please provide some indication on the search results page which would show if there are hits in the various categories (videos, folders, galleries, pages) without having to click on each of those buttons. This is a very misleading screen for viewers who don't use the system very often -- especially in cases where there are no image hits but there are hidden hits in the other categories. Why make viewers click on each of those buttons to find out? Most viewers don't even think of doing that. Extremely counter intuitive.

                  • Single-click remove from collection

                    There is currently no way to remove photos from single collections - at least not with Edge. There is an icon that appears on collected photos. Make that icon clickable with a menu allowing that photo to be removed from that collection.

                    • Allow Google Tag Manager to track clicks on the BUY button

                      It would be helpful for those using SmugMug to sell their work via Adwords or other funnelling methods to track clicks on the BUY button.

                      Deeper level data tracking such as which images' BUY button was clicked on, how long the viewer stayed in this purchase area etc. Which products within the image page they viewed, Canvas, Metal, Paper, Keepsakes etc.

                      This would allow sellers to gain a deeper insight to their customers' behaviours. We might find data that will help us tweak our prices and/or products to make more sales.

                      • Need a global share button on the contacts page please.

                        it's not unique, it is what I have been used too in Phanfare, and I am certain it won't be difficult for your Smug Mug heroes to create. I can't believe it doesn't already exist.

                        • Add Organization and Profile Editing to the Mobile Apps

                          The mobile app is missing many obvious features:
                          - Ability to buy prints from the mobile app
                          - Ability to organize galleries and edit photos from the mobile app
                          - Ability to see and edit bio, etc, from the mobile app

                          The mobile version of the site in the browser has some of these features, and yet it keeps popping up with an ad for me to use the app instead, which does NOT have these features. You shouldn't be pushing a mobile app instead of the site if it doesn't do most of the things that the site does.

                          • Charge ZERO commission on print sales

                            My SmugMug busines account costs me £240 at current conversion rates (plus foreign currency transaction charges), and charges 15% on all sales, including digital downloads (which is just stupid, because if a client is paying £600 for a gallery, am I going to pay £90 for them to download it, or send it to them via wetransfer for free?).

                            Increasingly competitors offer the features that I chose SmugMug for, but without the commission. The leader seems to be Zenfolio. Everything I want is in their Pro UK account for £192 per year, with no commission at all.

                            I have never…

                              i hate working on the black backgrounds and white text. Really difficult to read, especially if your eyesight isn't perfect. Puts me off so much it's taken me two years to start really customizing my site.

                              • Make it possible to modify the order when set to proof delay.

                                Allow orders to be modified during proof delay (isn't that the whole point of it?).

                                Photographers should have the ability to change orders with customer's approval. If someone orders 100 prints and chooses glossy instead of matte, I should be able to change that.
                                If they choose 8x10, I should be able to modify it to 8x12 because of poor cropping. Heck, I'd rather absorb the $1 different than make my client spend anther hour redoing the order and give them the larger size for the same price.

                                I've heard the argument that you can't charge something different than the…

                                • Allow customizing of contact invitation emails

                                  The email your system sends when inviting a contact to access a gallery (e.g. as used in the Client Area functionality) is pretty awesome. It would be nice to be able to brand the email and change it's message content. However, at the absolute bear minimum, can we at least have the ability to change how it refers to US? The email reads "Great news! dtrimble has invited you...". It looks amateurish and a bit silly to say "dtrimble", which is also what shows in the from header. It would be super useful to be able to say my full…

                                    • add additional url to site

                                      If I have a smugmug page, businessname.smugmug.com
                                      and I change my business name to newbusinessname.smugmug.com all of the old gallery links ive sent to clients would break, right? Requiring me to send hundreds of emails!

                                      So I want to be able to add a new one, so both businessname.smugmug.com/Weddings/Gallery1 and NEWbusinessname.smugmug.com/Weddings/Gallery1 would work and point to the same page.

                                      • Add a displayable 'folder description' to folders

                                        We badly need a 'description' field in Folders to provide summary information to viewers.

                                        The workaround - to customise each folder with a text content block - is simply not workable for sites with many folders as it's a lot of work, and risks breaking the uniform look and feel.

                                        This is one feature which is edging me back to Zenfolio... Please please add this feature.

                                        • Allow Visitors to Rate Photos, then Sort Galleries by their Rating

                                          Please offer a sorting and rating system. It would be great if as the clients are looking through their images they could rate each and then sort by the rating. This would make it easier to cull through the images. I know that they can click on the stars, but it doesn't seem like they can be sorted.
