  1. Allow slideshow (or lightbox) arrows to be placed other than at the sides.

    Allow back/forward arrows for slideshow (and lightbox) to fit not just at the sides of the slideshow but also right under the slideshow and not intrude on the image area. (Or maybe other locations too?)

    And to be able to group the back/forward, thumbnails link, full screen button, and play button all neatly together under the slideshow.

    And for these not to disappear/reappear or fade/unfade with mouse hoverings .

    For example, from a page of another photographer:

    http://www.krisannejohnson.com/Projects/Old-German-Baptist/1

    (She does have mouse hover animation; but we can imagine that there's an option to allow the page designer to not have…

    • Allow pinning individual page sidebars

      Currently, the sidebars on pages pin only if they are an entire site sidebar or homepage sidebar.

      That disallows having different pinned sidebars on different pages.

      Moreover, entire site sidebars display on the 'Unlock Page' page, which would not be wanted if you want all of the content of your pages (including the sidebar) to be private.

      It seems pretty basic to allow having different content on sidebars on different pages, and to choose to pin all of them or some of them individually, and for the sidebar not to be visible to people without a visitor password.

      I can't…

      • Allow interaction between slideshow/thumbnails so that both pages can have other content too.

        I would like to have pages that have on them a slideshow but also other content blocks with other text, such as a paragraph about the subject of the slideshow or navigation on a sidebar, etc.

        Then also a button to the thumbnails. And on the thumbnails page, also content blocks along with the thumbnails. Then to be able to click on a thumbnail to bring you back to the slideshow page at that image in the slideshow.

        For example, see this page by another photographer:

        http://www.krisannejohnson.com/Projects/Old-German-Baptist/1

        You see that she has her sidebar navigation on both the slideshow page…

        • Show new photos with a 'New Addition' icon or something similar

          Would be nice to show New photos with a piece of text or icon indicating it is a new image added within the last 15 days.

          • Let us add a border around text content blocks.

            Without a border, some text looks out of place. It would be great to have an option to have a border around the text content block, just makes it look a lot more appealing.

            The only other way we can do this is in Photoshop but it is quite time-consuming.

            • Simplify sharing favourites from a private gallery

              My clients want private galleries, but they also want to share their favourites images. Smugmug should make this extremely easy for them. Currently it's far too complicated.

              I offer each client a password protected gallery. I want them to be able to select their favourite images, then share only their favourites selection, without the need for a password etc.

              Selecting favourites needs to be simplified. Brides just want to click a heart, anything more complicated than that is too complicated. Please make this an option directly on the images in the gallery, rather than in the light box. If you…

                • Enable fine grained access control on smart galleries

                  As a gallery owner who wants to maintain full size resolution photos in an unlisted gallery, I would like to be able to create smart galleries with finer or more restricted access control for the purposes of being shared.
                  For example, I have all my photos for an event in a gallery, but only want to share photos that are non-blurry or highlights via a smart gallery. In addition, while I may want to be able to access all sizes or even have my gallery as unlisted, I want to reduce the shared smart gallery max view size to large,…

                  • Plugin for Capture One

                    PLUGIN for CAPTURE ONE

                    it would be great if you guys could develop a plugin for Capture One Pro just like the one for Lightroom.

                    Capture One Pro is being doing good progress and photographers are happier nowadays with Capture One than with Lightroom

                    http://www.dpreview.com/forums/thread/3818616

                    actually the main thing that prevents me from making the jump from LR to Capture One is the lack of smugmug plugin, because uploading & syncing from the edition software is so comfortable!

                    Thank you!

                    • 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.

                      • Add in Gmail SSO for folders

                        Enable Gmail Single Sign On feature that allows specific domains access to either an account or better yet a folder. We're using Smugmug as our organization media archive system restricting certain folders only to team members and others to guests.

                        Additionally, can there be a global download switch instead of having to activate it on every individual gallery?

                        Regards,
                        Robert O.

                        • Page Keywords and Keyword Cloud

                          Please can we have the Keyword Cloud link to Page Keywords.

                          Add an option to the Keyword Cloud of: -

                          Galleries (on by default so we don't break any current use)
                          Pages (just keywords used by Pages)
                          All (all keywords from Galleries and Pages)

                          This will help when using pages for page content in the site; and (to me) should be a fairly simple change.

                          please

                          Thanks

                          • Prevent photos from being uploaded as multiple copies from Lightroom

                            Currently, if a photo appears in multiple Smart-Galleries in the SmugMug Lightroom-Plugin - for example because of its keywords - then multiple copies of those photos are uploaded, treating each of the copies as separate photo.

                            It would be helpful, if only one instance of such photos are uploaded and other occurences are treated like collected photos or photos in smart galleries setup on the website.

                              • Show the gallery download password to owners

                                Please include "Show Password" in Gallery Settings: Photo Protection: Download Password.

                                Over the course of years and hundreds of galleries, and as many clients, not being able to see the password I set for a gallery will be a huge issue. If I have to change the password (standardized as it may be), I then have to email the new password to that set of clients.

                                Literally, am I supposed to remember the password for a random gallery ten years from now?

                                • Offer mountings in all sizes, or at least a filter for which sizes have them.

                                  I’m spending a LOT of time adding different products to my cart and later finding out which ones allow various types of mounting. I would love to be able to hit a button that says something like “show only sizes that offer Standout mounting” or similar.

                                  I’m also really disappointed that 15x20 doesn’t offer any mounting at all, since that size would be perfect. I wish all sizes offered the various mountings.

                                    It would be great if we could disable the ability to download specific images within a gallery.

                                    • Different type of loading effects for pages

                                      I would really like to have an option to change the loading effect to something simple as just a smooth glide in. My pages load very poppy, images randomly pop up, it just looks very untidy like that.

                                        I have written descriptions for all my galleries. I would like to be able to display them on the mobile app.
