  1. Download link limits

    I would really like there to be a download link download limit. I send these links to clients to download the images but there is not a way to limit the number of times the link is good for. Can this be added?

    Also can there be a counter on the number of downloads? I would love to see this to be able to regulate the download of the images.

    Lastly a custom message would be great to let clients know they reached there limit.

    • keyword structure correction

      Currently if I click a keyword when in a folder and that keyword is used across multiple folders it will show images from all folders. Surely once in a folder keywords should restrict results to images that are found within that folder only?

      It seems that folder structure does not reflect the 'scope' setting, what's the point of choosing which key words appear and where, when the result do not follow the same structure?

      • android automatic upload

        Your current auto upload feature really needs to be improved ASAP or I will likely move all my photos and videos to Google Photos unlimited storage forever. The only reason keeping me with SmugMug is that my pictures/videos are in full resolution.

        The current auto-upload only allows the pics to be uploaded to one album with a 5000 photos/videos limit.

        What I recommend you do is automatically create folders by device-name/& date so each day it automatically creates a new album & and puts them in a monthly folder.

        This way all I have to do is go into each…

        • Produce digital photo frames for smugmug

          Would be great if I didn’t have to put my photos in usb to put into a digital photo frame. If I could have one that just displayed my photos on smugmug. I wouldn’t have to keep updating, which no one does anyway because it’s time consuming. Will need buttons such as include all this file, minus this picture, etc. options for people to include and exclude in their digital photo frame.

          • Shopping Cart View Image Pop-up Option

            May I suggest to the WEB developers front end to allow the images in the shopping cart the option to pop up for larger view when in the shopping cart view if the user clicks on them? This could make the images more attractive, once again instilling the buyer's impulse to buy the print rather than change his/her mind?

            • add a "are you sure you want to delete this" message to the delete button.

              In the app currently, when viewing a photo and clicking on the "share" icon to get to the "delete" or "save to camera roll" options - they are right next to each other, and some of us have fat fingers and end up accidentally hitting delete instead of save. Would love to see a "Are you sure you want to delete this?" message so you have to confirm deletion before it's gone.

              • Add A4 Prints to Loxley Options for UK & Europe

                My customers constantly ask for A4 prints to fit frames they already have. At the moment we have to ask them to buy a 12” x 9” print and cut it down with all the scope that has for misunderstanding and error.

                Since Loxley produce A4 prints as part of their standard range it would make sense to add the option - and other A sizes too - to the price list.

                  • Create a way to "mark" photos to take action later

                    I'm looking to use SmugMug as my safe harbor for all my photos & videos, as well as a place where I can find my favorite highlights and share with friends and family. I know about selecting those I want to "collect." But as I thumb through hundreds of photos it's way faster to simply "mark" those I want to put in a collection album as I go before actually collecting them. You have a "heart" option for clients of photographers but not photographers themselves. Currently there's no way to do it without creating a zillion keywords for each separate…

                    • Please have email, text integration in smugmug and not just download.

                      Since there are ways to integrate in an app- maybe you can have an app that can text or share the photos instantly by text or email.

                        • Autoplay slideshow

                          To save time & simplify when displaying photos create "autoplay" global feature that allows the user to pre-configure a particular slideshow to play on app start. This has multiple advantages:

                          1/ Greatly streamlined & uncluttered user experience when showing customers their photos
                          2/ Opens the app up to wider usage (eg as a standalone display configured to show particular photos on start - great for marketing or personal use).

                          Should be a fairly simple feature to add.

                          • Offer the same print sizes/services that your print labs do. All of them.

                            We have a client who wants to order hundreds of 4x4 prints.
                            Our Smugmug site is connected to Bayphoto.
                            Bayphoto offers 4x4 prints.
                            Smugmug does not allow 4x4 prints.

                            We just lost a sale, Smugmug just lost a sale.

                            Bayphoto offers many print sizes that we cannot offer through our Smugmug site.

                            Is it really that difficult to allow all of the lab's print sizes to be printed through the Smugmug site?

                              • Ultra high resolution panarama photo capabilty (500+ MP)

                                I have a few photos where I have stitched 50+ photos together to get an ultra high-resolution shot. An example is a shot that is 25000 x 8500 pixels (~212 MP). With cameras coming out with higher resolution, namely the canon 5DS (50 megapixels), stitching just a few photos together will exceed the current restrictions enforced by SmugMug.

                                • The Review Order page should include the link sent to the customer.

                                  If my customer doesn't find the email with the link to his download purchase, I'd like to know what that link is, so I can forward it to him when I get the complaint. If this were so, I wouldn't have to bother the Support Heroes with the problem.

                                  • Add Wallet Prints to the Loxley Colour options - They already offer this themselves!

                                    I'll upgrade my account to a Business account for this feature!

                                    I'd love to have Wallet Prints enabled in the Loxley Colour product range within the SM site. They call it 4 on 6x4 or 4 on 7x5 etc and it's in their 'Multi-Up' range on their own website. I need it on my SM site to enable my customers to order their own.

                                    • default search to newest

                                      I'd like to be able to control what images show in a search result. We would prefer to set it to newest instead of photo rank.

                                      • Please add option to import from Google Drive

                                        You offer the ability to import from Google Photos but not from Google Drive. Google Drive makes it easier for me to organise photos and to import from here will help a lot.

                                        • Save shopping carts on smugmug servers rather than in the user's browser

                                          Currently shopping carts are saved on the user's browser. This means that a user can't login to a different computer and access their saved shopping cart. Further, there are issues with cookies and carts often get emptied arbitrarily. To avoid all this, the carts should just be saved on smugmug servers directly. Anytime someone logs in and starts a cart, these should be synced with the smugmug server. Then issues with cookies can be completely avoided, and users can update carts on any number of computers.
