  1. Provide a Way to Share a Range of Photos in a Gallery

    Often I don't want to share an entire gallery with a friend. Rather, I’d like to just share a range of photos that are relevant to my friend, such as photographs 208-214. I don’t want to bore my friend with irrelevant photos or I don’t want my friend to see personal photos that are in the gallery. Please provide a feature that allows me to send a link that limits viewing and downloading to a specific range of photos. Even better, please permit the feature to allow linking single photos and multiple ranges, e.g., 4, 14, 112-130, 208-214. I am…

    • Allow for Longer Captions in Slideshow

      Provide a setting to allow long captions to overlay more of the picture in Slideshow mode. Now, some of our longer captions are getting cut off which makes the slideshow view unusable.

      • Delete and Hide Photos from Mobile Browser

        Please let us at least be able to delete (and hide!) photos when using a mobile browser. Please - it's 2017! You can't simply block this basic feature.
        I want to be able and have a look at my galleries and modify them on my mobile. It has got a display big enough for that - many customers / visitors view the pics mobile as well!

        • Improve ease of viewing stats for individual photos

          This might be long so please be patient. Since joining SmugMug a few years back I've been torn between this and Flickr. The main reason I still keep a Flickr account (less photos but with links to my SmugMug) is because of their super-easy and informative stats but having just my SmugMug would make things a lot simpler. So here are some of my SmugMug stat wishes.

          When I eventually dig my way into the SmugMug stats (why not a simple link from the homepage instead of going into Account Settings --> Stats --> Photo Views?) and look at Popularity,…

          • Google Analytics anonymize IP addresses

            As enforced by Austrian law there is a need to anonymize IP addresses when using Google Analytics, Adsense etc...
            Maybe there are other countries as well (like in the European Union) that have this requirement. Unfortunately there are really high fines set up if we do not fulfill this requirement.

            I came across this feature on other platforms (like a Wordpress Google Analytics plugin) where one just has to tick a box to get anonymized IP addresses.

            I just hope to get this feature implemented because this makes or breaks completely the use of the SmugMug platform.

            Thank you!

            • Allow us to create the download gallery link in the mobile version of SM.

              Would it be possible to allow us to create the download gallery link through the mobile version of smugmug? Right now, I have to be on a computer in order to create the link to send to the clients. Thanks!

              • Search for text, not only photos...

                Many SmugMug sites have many text pages (CV, Biography, How-to, Blog, News, FAQ etc... but there is no way for users to search them.

                  Please create a social icon for The Knot. I know loads of people who use this site are in the wedding photography industry. This would be pretty useful. Thanks!

                  • visually distinguish folders and galleries

                    I would like the theme or display options to allow clearer distinction between folders and galleries. For example, a little yellow icon (for Windows users), or a colored border of the thumbnail, rounded corners, different colored font - any one of these would help distinguish a folder from a gallery. I have a lot of folders and galleries, and it gets confusing.

                    I have changed the thumbnail and font size, pixel spacing etc. to be different between galleries and folders, but in the ISIS theme at least they still look similar, especially to visitors.

                        people should be able to easily comment on galleries and photos. a lot of people upload from their cell phones or view photos on their phones. why can't we easily comment from our phones? please allow us to comment on photos from the website AND the app while on our phones.

                          • Home button on Search pages

                            It would be good when on a search page if there is a home button at the top.
                            Now you need to open a picture on the search page first to get out.
                            Something which should be standard.

                              • Allow Design Customisation of Search Result Page

                                It would be great to be able to customise the design of the search results page.

                                The images currently show up with no spacing between each of them and as a cropped version of the full image, so it's hard to see the images properly without clicking on each one.

                                It would also be great to have the text that appears for each image to be its title, rather than the gallery it belongs to.

                                Thanks!

                                • French language for License explanation for our buyers.

                                  For me who is in the Montreal area, it would be advantageous for me to be able to choose to display the conditions of use in French (or give the choice of the language for the client) when a client want to buy downloadable images. It would be simpler to translate texts already existing.

                                  • Customer Requests in Order

                                    A way for customers to submit special requests at the time of the order instead of having to submit a second item to the seller for support.

                                      I'm sure I'm not the only photographer on SmugMug that works with commercial clients. Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest etc are fine that LinkedIn is just as important. Put it back as an option!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

                                      • Update the featured image option

                                        I love the featured image setting BUT I spend so much time picking images that don't end up lining up nicely with the space provided. Many times my subject's head is cut off, for instance. It would be nice to have the option to move the image around in the space, and be able to save it in the desired orientation.

                                        • Google Pixel cases

                                          Let's please get some Google Pixel cases as Google is offering their live view cases that you can get printed with your own images but they cost $40. I think a lot of people would be interested in getting them from SmugMug. This is googles answer to the iPhone and its I going to get more popular.
