  1. Fix direct link view within Facebook app browser (iOS) - No content shown.

    When I share a link on Facebook that goes directly to the image I'm posting about, the title, description, and tags are hidden. This is due to the Facebook browser overlay such as how many likes, comments, option to share etc. near the bottom of the Facebook browser.

    Over half of Facebook users are mobile users. Most of those users are on Facebook via the Facebook app. This is a bad experience for mobile users as the Facebook app browser covers the engaging content like title, description (tags can be useful as they are links). If you share a SmugMug…

    • Increase the maximum number of photos per gallery

      Some of the races I photograph include up to 2 thousand participants and the resulting photos can easily exceed 10 thousand, even after culling/editing. As it stands now, Smugmug's 5000 image limit per gallery means I need to create at least two galleries per race. I understand 10K would be an extremely large gallery. But so is 5K, so at that point why not go all the way. At least the customers would no longer get confused over which gallery they are in.

      • Enable Collect function to work at a folder level

        Now that you've enabled uploading of folders and everything under that folder (whether it's another folder or pictures), I think another great extension is to allow the collect feature to operate similarly at a folder level

        • Add email notification when photos and/or an entire gallery have been downloaded

          I have clients that download an entire gallery after I have given them a password. I would like to be notified by email when they download the gallery so I can delete what was downloaded or change the password.

          • Provide Permalinks for galleries and photos

            Currently, URLs for galleries and photos are specific to the folder path in SmugMug. e.g. http://archive.jimvetter.com/Fashion/HOT-COUTURE-2014. If I move a gallery to a different folder (as I might do to reorganize or tidy up my folders), the URL to the gallery also changes. Thus, any links I've published are broken if I move a gallery.

            I suggest that when a gallery is created, you provide an unchanging permalink to the gallery and its photos. Then I can organize my library any way I like without breaking links.

            • download data collection/log

              I would like to have better logging and data collection for downloaded images. Maybe a information box can be displayed at time of download to collect things such as name, e-mail, usage (ie facebook, instagram, website, etc). It would be nice to know how one's work is planned on being used and by who. The only other option would be based on a digital download with a base price of $0.00 and a 100% discount, but not process the billing information, but instead collect the user information.

              • Offer Deep matte through Bay Photo

                Please add an option to sell deep matte prints from Bayphoto. These prints have no shine and make a better option than matte paper.

                • Mac OS Finder integration

                  I am stoked you added the native app for Mac with the menubar - nice work. Still it would be so much easier to just right-click on images in the finder and send them to the site. Any ideas if this will happen?

                      • 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?

                                  • 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.

                                    • 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.
