  1. allow users to upload images to gallery featured image instead of choosing an already uploaded image.

    Instead of having to choose an already uploaded image for the folder/gallery featured image, allow users to upload images that aren't displayed elsewhere. This would be useful for uploading client images or coming soon images.

    • provide a way to bookmark or flag other users

      There are many photographers out there I would like to be able to at least peruse their galleries from time to time. It would be nice to have a feature to save such locations in all of the paid accounts, rather than just the top one.

      • Option to delete collected photos from all locations

        Redesign the "Delete Photo" function so that any selected photos have the option to be deleted just from the active gallery or deleted globally from all galleries.

        Example:
        "Delete selected from this gallery"
        "Delete selected from all galleries"

        It is cumbersome to chase "Collected" Versions and "original" versions when culling you galleries

          • make galleries customizable so some pictures can be downloaded but others cant

            I would love it if I could individually select photographers within a gallery to be available for viewing only while others would be available for download.
            Right now you can select the entire gallery to be available for download but not just certain pictures.
            I don't want to have to create a separate event for my clients. It would be so much easier if we had control of each inidivdual picture on the gallery so we could decide what is downloadable, what is only viewable and what is available for print ordering

            • Add ability to mask darker / lighter the Feature and Cover Image

              The mask & masking opacity settings for the background photos (ie photos displayed as background like in your homepage) is a very sleek option - which is unfortunately only available for background pictures.
              It would be awesome to be able to add a darker / lighter mask on the gallery Feature (or gallery Cover) Images for each gallery so that the gallery name stands out better on a darker / lighter background.

              • Option to include or exclude watermarks on downloads through app

                It would be really useful to have the option, within the "settings" for the iPad app, to choose whether or not to include your logo with your downloaded image. It's great to be able to access the original files when needed, but it's also really valuable for my business to have easy access to lower resolution watermarked images for publicity on Facebook.

                • Create an up to upload (edited versions) photos from ON1 Photo Raw

                  I could stop using Lightroom CC if there was an app to upload edited photos from ON1 Photo Raw. If it worked the same way the app works in LR CC, that would be great.

                    • Fix Buying Option to recognize multiple price lists.

                      POSSIBLE FIX TO IMPROVE SELL THROUGH AND SMUGMUG PROFITS:

                      Since the "Buy This Photo” recognizes the two or more different price lists why not make the Buy Photos in this Gallery button option, simply do the same?

                      As those images on other prices list might not have the same size available: instead of graying out the photo and saying UNAVAILABLE, keep live images and where the price would have shown simply place “Click for Price” which could bring up the size options so they can choose and buy.

                      THE PROBLEM

                      If you have a Gallery with two or more different…

                      • Provide Print/Product Detail Page Link outside of Cart

                        In the old days we use to have a more detailed page that explained print options, but currently we have this high-level summary for Bay, and I assume others.
                        https://www.smugmug.com/prints/catalog/ABC#BayPhoto

                        As Support noted there is more detail once you are in the cart and know which product you want, but that's tedious for pre-sales.

                        When working with a customer that’s not interested in total self-serve, it was nice to be able to provide a link to that level of detail, as we discuss what is the best product is for them.

                        It also helps when I can put a direct…

                          • Allow us to have a say before you give our clients unnecessary refunds

                            I would like to request that when my customers contact SmugMug in regards to their orders, that I am notified first before decisions are made by SmugMug to give them refunds. I have now had thousands of dollars of profits refunded to my clients, when I could have taken care of the situation and avoided the need for a refund. I would like a note put on my account to notify me of client contact before a refund is given. I understand your “satisfaction guarantee”, but am frustrated that you are dealing with my clients and not allowing me to…

                            • Carousel randomiser suggestions

                              I think it would be great to also include an option for the randomiser to pick from 'all' photos and not just recent/popular/specific ones.

                              Further to this I would like to be able to exclude photos from the randomiser as well with the current settings even. I realise I can go through and specifically select photos to use but like the random-ness

                                  suggests that you install the Polish currency. In Poland, photography is very popular. I think many photographers will benefit. The Polish client does not want to buy in a different currency than the Polish zloty. The lack of Polish currency does not allow me to use this system

                                    • Events: Create an option to lock the event favorite images for future modification

                                      from the event page people tag their favorite images. Can you make a feature for the photographer to block the event "favorite image tag"(that prevent the client from tagging more images)?

                                      • Guest Upload via SMS

                                        Like auto-BCC emails, it'd be nice to include an SMS number in a group text so all sent media gets uploaded to a specified location.

                                        Example: Mom, Wife, Cousin, and I are in a group text where we share family photos and videos. Everything in this group conversation should be uploaded to my SmugMug "Family" gallery.

                                        Even better, it'd be nice if the app could "read"/"watch" specified text message conversations and upload it without needing to remember to include this "stranger's" SMS number.

                                        • Fix Bug: Upload Window Opens From Browser Window When Logged Out

                                          I'm uploading images while traveling, and sometimes SmugMug logs me out from an open window after some time frame. Not a problem, however, the Upload Window still opens as if logged in, and after uploading images and waiting the entire time of the upload before finding all the images marked in red with "Login Error".

                                          It would be good if the Upload Window wouldn't open when the user is automatically logged out by SmugMug. Doesn't sound like a big deal until you're doing batch uploads of 100 or more images, then find out after that you're not logged in and…
