  1. Add a way to easily copy and paste BB/HTML links direct from the gallery

    Have a simple two three or even 4 lines below each picture as you are looking at the gallery that would contain the Bulletin Board, HTML and maybe even the direct link or IM/E-mail links, for the picture in is most used size, so you do not have to click on each and ever picture, then click share, then choose a size, ect ect.

      • Offer iPad cases as well as iPhone

        I want a custom photo case for my new iPad Pro 10.5 inch; I'm going to get one from another site but it would have been nice to get it through my site here.

          Can captions be shown on the carousel content block even if they are images collected from other galleries.

          • allow us to register additional emails on the account

            ... in particular, to let us interact with your Support Heroes from other emails besides the one used to register the account.

            The solution could be combined with other requests, e.g.:

            • 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?

              • 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.

                • Add Social Media Icon when using Custom URL

                  Allow upload and selection of social media icon(s) --> I've been exploring the social media site Ello (https://ello.co/) lately because of their focus on photographers and other artist. There is no Ello option in the Social Icon tool choices for customized pages. SmugMug has a Custom URL field as a catch all. It displays a generic web link icon. Suggest we’re allowed to add and select of our own icon when Custom URL is used.

                  • Mac App - Gallery Settings Available

                    What I would like to see added is more customization options when uploading. Something similar to what you have in the LR module. I'm left LR to go to C1. In specific, so when you create a new album in the app, I'd like to be able to set the watermark to on, and display file names. Currently, after the files upload, I have to go on to the smugmug website, enter the gallery then turn on the watermarks and display file name option. Just some suggestions I think would really enhance the user experience from the Mac App end.

                    • Guest Upload: Identifying Information About Guests Who Upload

                      Hey SmugMug! I'm developing a user submission system for my fraternity brothers to upload their own photographs, videos, and social media posts that they capture at our events. The purpose of this system will be so that I can collect them for official chapter publications, like in videos and for galleries that I'll be creating.

                      As you all know, this method is a lot cleaner and easier than the other alternative of emailing photographs to a central email that everyone has to remember. My complication right now with the guest uploading system is that I can't tell who is uploading…

                      • add image size presets to the edit settings panel in the SmugMug/LR plugin.

                        Please consider adding the option of creating image sizing presets to the edit settings panel in the SmugMug/LR plugin. This will allow users with the click of a button to choose the optimal preset sizing for square, portrait, and landscape images when posting to Instagram and other locations without having to retype the sizing info again and again.

                        • View captions in organizer mode

                          I'd like to see a way to view captions when in organizer mode. It's currently possible to view only titles. (The reason I ask is that I would use the captions in sorting the photos.)

                          • 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?

                            • 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.

                              • Length of slideshows

                                It would be great is there was a counter to show how many minutes a slideshow was. I embedded a slideshow into a web page and then embedded a music code. If I knew the length of the slideshow I could time it so both ended together.

                                • Packaging exclusion and scrolling list

                                  Allow me to EXCLUDE certain packages from specific galleries.

                                  AND the scroll "button" for buying packages is NOT visible. (largest complaint is they dont see the packes when what they dont see is the scroll button)
                                  excluding certain packages will make the list shorter and allowing me to change the color or shade of the menu box will help too.

                                    • Charge ZERO commission on print sales

                                      My SmugMug busines account costs me £240 at current conversion rates (plus foreign currency transaction charges), and charges 15% on all sales, including digital downloads (which is just stupid, because if a client is paying £600 for a gallery, am I going to pay £90 for them to download it, or send it to them via wetransfer for free?).

                                      Increasingly competitors offer the features that I chose SmugMug for, but without the commission. The leader seems to be Zenfolio. Everything I want is in their Pro UK account for £192 per year, with no commission at all.

                                      I have never…

                                      • Make it possible to see my Flickr & Google Photos albums/folders when uploading

                                        trying to scroll through 40,000+ photos is difficult when uploading from those sites

                                        • Make the RSS Feed Link positionable

                                          Currently RSS Feed link is in the footer. This doesn't work so well for very large galleries, because the infinite scroll means you have to do a lot of work to get to the link.

                                          I'd like to propose that the link be positionable (or at least provide a few choices), so that (for instance), I could position the link in the lower right-hand corner of the gallery hero image (near the download/slideshow buttons)

                                          Not saying the footer shouldn't be an option, but I don't think it should be the only choice!
