  1. Filter by Photos or Videos in the Organizer

    When in the Organizer it would be handy to have a filter option to only show movies within the gallery.

    Scenario: I have 1 gallery with mix of photos and videos. I want to use an easy/fast way to move all the videos from this gallery to a different gallery for movies only.

      • Create SmugMug scanning app

        There are a few scanning apps out there but one that directly uploaded to SmugMug would help streamlining the process of digitizing old photos.

        • Fix videos so they look good from the first frame

          The first 5-6 seconds of my SmugMug videos look very bad while SmugMug's player is trying to determine the user's connection speed

          Personally, if I clicked on a video play button, and saw the pixelated mess SmugMug is serving up, I would close the window ASAP and go look at something else. I am too embarrassed to ask friends and relatives to look my videos on SmugMug due to the poor start-up quality.

          Amateur videos posted on Flikr, YouTube, etc. do not have this problem

          Please fix this.

          • Release an app for Fire TV Stick

            It appears that you have an app for Amazon Fire TV but not Fire TV Stick. I hope you have that in the works. This is a very popular device now.

            • Automatically expand accordion sub menu items

              It would be nice that SmugMug "remembers" after a page load which submenu item was selected and automatically opens the top-level menus and highlight it.

              It applies to accordion.

              At the moment, I had to apply a CSS hack to make it work:

              CSS code:

              /* expand if sub menu-item selected */
              .sm-accordion-item-has-children.sm-page-widget-nav-hasactivepage:not(.sm-accordion-item-open) ul.sm-accordion-children {
              display: block;
              }
              .sm-accordion-item-has-children.sm-page-widget-nav-hasactivepage.sm-accordion-item-open ul.sm-accordion-children {
              display: none;
              }
              .sm-accordion-item-has-children:not(.sm-accordion-item-open) > .sm-accordion-item-action > .sm-fonticon:before {
              content: '\E034' !important;
              }
              .sm-accordion-item-has-children.sm-page-widget-nav-hasactivepage > .sm-accordion-item-action > .sm-fonticon:before {
              content: '\E035' !important;
              }
              .sm-accordion-item-has-children.sm-page-widget-nav-hasactivepage.sm-accordion-item-open .sm-accordion-item-action > .sm-fonticon:before {
              content: '\E034' !important;
              }

              • Allow easy deletion of unviewed galleries

                After a number of years, I have some old galleries that are not ever viewed. I would delete these (and save you storage space) if I had an easy way to determine that they have not been viewed.

                That is, more search terms needed in the photo views section. And a new feature next software update that includes galleries that have had zero views for a long while.

                (btw, I've had a gallery get 70 k views in one day and then none after a while.)

                • Default to printed photos

                  So my customer just messaged me because he's clicked buy within the gallery and it defaults to printed photos with the option to change product which he didn't find very intuitive and didn't realise you needed to click change product. If you select an image first you are given the choice of prints, wall art, keepsakes or downloads. Why default to prints in the gallery? It's a bit confusing. Can this not be changed to the same options regardless of what order a client selects purchase?

                  • Ability to EMPHASISE fotos in a gallery

                    Adobe Revel had this feature:

                    give the photographer the ability to select SPECIFIC FOTOS a GALLERY, that are shown EMPHASISED (bigger - about 2 times) in a gallery.

                    Extra: To take it even further, these informations could be read from stars in the meta-data.

                    Example: Event fotos: Users tend to pick / download the 2nd or 3rd best shot! Never the BEST → If it would be shown bigger, they would tent to download the best.

                    • Keep the solid green line when showing the number of views of images. The dots are very hard to follow

                      I study the number of views of my images daily. Recently you began showing the day-by-day graph with a solid green line. In a few seconds the solid line changes to green dots for each day. The dots are, for me, very hard to follow. I would like to see you keep the solid green line.

                      • Make it easier to select different sizes

                        When I ask my visitors if they viewed the larger sizes or if they looked at the original size to see a detail they often don't know how to do it, and telling them how is too 'involved'. Could you you make this much more obvious? My stats reveal that almost nobody views the larger sizes but thousands view the standard size.

                        • Offer [IMG] tags without being wrapped in a URL tag

                          Right now the BBCode is a [IMG] tag wrapped in a [url] which will link to access denied page when the users' page is set to private. There should be a way to just share the image without having to be linked to anything.

                                Please add a feature to add Customer Testimonials to my site. It should be a page you can add, add a menu link to it from your homepage, ask the client for their name, rating (1 to 5 or stars or something like that), have them write up to maybe 200-300 characters and then have a submit button. The owner can then review the testimonial and choose to publish or not.

                                • Video Custom Thumbnail / Preview User Experience Improvements

                                  The custom video preview/thumbnail upload dialog currently let's users upload a PNG file. However, afterwards the video thumbnail never changes. After contacting support, I found out that it has to be a JPG. Unfortunately, the dialog doesn't mention this at all. Thus, here are my suggestions on how to improve the user experience:

                                  1. Indicate in the dialog window that it has to be a JPG file. Right now, it doesn’t mention that.

                                  2. Reject files other than JPG. Right now, I can upload a PNG and the following confirmation message led me to believe that everything had been done…

                                    Since the Roku SmugMug app is no longer supported and you change things and break the app, you should create your own Roku APP!!!!!!!!!

                                    • Photo number in the discription when posting gallery to Facebook

                                      Is it possible for you to add the photo numbers to each photo when sharing a whole gallery to Facebook. it would make life a lot easier for me to sell my photos. most of my loss of sales is due to the fact that the people refuse to purchase in Dollars they want ZAR. by adding the photo number when posting it will make it easy for me to sell my photos via EFT. thank you

                                      • Automatically show buy button

                                        Hi. When I post a photo link on Facebook, it takes scrolling and an extra click to see the Buy button on the bottom. Please let the Buy button show up automatically and at the top or next to the photo so that viewers, especially on mobile phone such as my iPhone, can know it's for sale from the get-go

                                          Will SmugMug please look into adding music to the slideshow?

                                          SmugMug Support Hero,

                                          Will SmugMug please look into adding music to the slideshow? My other website www.RichardDalcinStudios.com has music and it helps so much with the images. Please respond with a positive reply.
                                          Best,
                                          Richard Dalcin
