  1. "Unaccepted" (Shared) Galleries feature

    This is a feature request which I think would be incredibly useful.

    I've found that in the past I've sent invitations to my galleries to users / friends -- and they either lose those invitations, or those invitations get sent to spam. Occasionally something goes wrong - maybe the user get busy, maybe they just forget.

    A month goes buy. And the invitation to the initial gallery is lost. Forever. Where are the pictures to the gallery? Lost. :(

    Now lets say the user log's in to smugmug after a month or so - just by chance because I, the…

    • Guest Uploading - to an unlisted gallery - add a custom "You Are Finished" page

      Currently when a Guest finishes uploading to an unlisted gallery, and they click "Done", they are redirected to SmugMug's "Unlock Gallery" page. Can Smugmug allow us to create our own redirect page? Something like a "Thank You For Your Submission" or a "You Are Finished" page. Our goal is to hide all of the photos that guests have uploaded until all of the Guests have finished uploading to the Gallery and we are we are ready to "unveil" the complete gallery. A nice "Thank You For Your Submission" or "Congratulations, You Are Finished Uploading" page is nicer to be redirected…

      • Allow the ability to show keywords when mouse is hovered near the bottom of the image across all gallery types.

        Currently, when you are logged into the owners account, when you select an image in a gallery and move your mouse to the bottom of the image, all of the keywords are visible. If the gallery is private, then users who you've invited to the gallery, cannot see the keywords when hovering their mouse near the bottom of the image. This should be a setting that you can enable. The search within a private gallery works fine but the keywords cannot be made available to invited users. Please add this feature.

        • see which users are most active on your page

          My site is completely closed off to the outside world. I have a few galleries that I invited specific people to access. Within the "Statistics" page in "Account Settings", I can see how popular my site is but it doesn't give me any information about WHO is visiting my site. Since my site is locked off and only accessible by specific users, I'd love to see which specific users are accessing my site the most and which galleries are their favorites.

          • Collect Viewers Email Address to View Galleries (not using Events)

            Hello,

            I think it is very important to add an optional email gate to galleries. That way when I share my family session galleries with my clients and they share with their family and friends, I have a way to connect and continue my relationship with people that have viewed my work. This does exist on other platforms but I have been with smugmug since the beginning and would love to stay here.

            • Password protection for app

              It would be great if the device app had the option of using a password. I've seen this on third party SmugMug apps which is great and it would be great if that was an option on the official app.

              • implement a "Magic zoom" by magictoolbox, feature (or similar ) into you viewing options. It provides smaller samples - harder to copy

                I feel it would be good if SM implemented a feature into their viewing options like "Magic zoom" by magictoolbox.
                This allows small high-res samples making it harder to copy yet easier for users to see the quality of the photo they may wish to buy.

                Perhaps a premium option??

                Please . . .

                • 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.

                  • Allowing individuals to word their own email invitations. Currently you use they or their and the wording is incorrect for me.

                    Allow each person to customize their email invitation if possible. "They" doesn't apply to me and is incorrect on the invitation.
                    Thanks!

                    • Consistent European language and measurement support for shopping cart

                      If you will please add this as a friendly suggestion to the wish list:

                      If you could make the shopping experience more user friendly for European customers by enabling consistent use of one language only.

                      For example I live in Germany and for my clients I would need to have all print measurements in cm, not in inch. Also nobody here knows what 'lustre' means.

                      One way would be if we could custom edit the price list. Another one would be if Loxley Colours would offer translated price lists.

                      Thank you for listening, Hannes

                      • Allow the generation of multiple [img] codes from a selection of photographs. Makes posting to a forum in bulk a lot easier

                        I'm a convert from the dreaded Photobucket. One good feature that they have is to allow you to select multiple pivcthures in a gallery and generate a bulk load of [img] codes. A one click operation that makes posting pictures to a picture heavy forum a lot easier

                        • Offer photobooks and calendars for sale.

                          I would like to be able to offer calendars and photobooks for sale on my SmugMug site. I have been ordering them from other sites but it is a pain; would be easier to have everything available for sale in one place.

                          • Extended the framing options to match the print lab. If I have framed images from Loxely on a wall for sale, they do not match smugmug.

                            The options for framing within smugmug and Loxley printing are very poor. I would like to see the full range of options provided by Loxley or any other print lab to be available in smugmug. Currently I would like to advertise and sell my images by having them displayed on wall of other venues like art shops, cafes etc. However if the client purchases or looks up my smugmug website, the options do not match the framing options available within Loxley and my preferred framing option for selling and presentation in a gallery, cafe etc.

                            • Increase the maximum number of photos per gallery

                              Some of the races I photograph include up to 2 thousand participants and the resulting photos can easily exceed 10 thousand, even after culling/editing. As it stands now, Smugmug's 5000 image limit per gallery means I need to create at least two galleries per race. I understand 10K would be an extremely large gallery. But so is 5K, so at that point why not go all the way. At least the customers would no longer get confused over which gallery they are in.

                              • 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 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.
