  1. Don't ruin my site with folders I don't create that can't be deleted

    I can't believe I actually have to suggest this but...

    Don't create new folders - "Cover Images" and "Profile Images", plop them right in the middle of my home page so I can't see the site I've designed and need to stare at these empty boxes, and tell me "They can't be deleted or changed" and "Unfortunately, there is not a way to hide those galleries or move them "

    • Add the option "return to parent folder" to the create button function

      I make travel folders with several galleries in them. After looking at one gallery, viewers on the web have to find (and understand!) the small breadcrumb to return to the parent folder to look at the next gallery. I can add a button that does this function, but the process is several steps long and has to be done one gallery at a time and requires that each gallery be set as custom. If one of the options in the dropdown menu to create a button was "return to parent folder" this option could be applied to every gallery and…

        • apple tv Smugmug app zoom like Lightroom CC app

          Currently the only app that has a nice way to zoom in the pictures is Lightroom CC, i'd love if Smugmug app could have the same functionality, it really adds a lot when you can zoom in on a pic on apple tv in 4k

          • Integrate with Adobe Photoshop Elements 2018

            Now that Lightroom has a subscription requirement it is too expensive. Could you add syncing with Elements? And I've heard about a product called Lumina 2018, that product may also have potential as an alternative if it had syncing with SmugMug.

            • Stats Page To See Extended Info From External Failed Password Attempts

              Smugmug already sends you an email alerting you of the event which is great but it would be great to be able to find all of the failed logins to all of my galleries in one place.

              Info the the page might show:

              - Find out where the user is coming from (where they found the link to the gallery... direct/google/facebook).
              - See if the user actually got into the gallery of not.
              - If they've visited your site previously using the correct password(not someone to be worried about).

              I'm sure there are a lot more things you could include.…

              • Privacy Vs Customization

                From a broad perspective, it doesn’t seem like one should have to sacrifice privacy in order to enjoy some of the great features of Smugmug.
                Could you allow users to "hide owner" but still be able to customize (various backgrounds and the like)? Maybe worth a review by your system analysts?
                Thanks and regards, Jim

                  • Multi-select photos for deletion with Control + click

                    Enable selection of non-sequential photos in a gallery by holding down Control and clicking. This is a common multi-select in operating systems and browsers. Would make it easier to clean up galleries.

                    • Pre-fill owner's email address when sharing

                      Hello SmugMug Support HEROs.

                      I create albums regularly, and create links to allow others to contribute to the album using the upload sharing link option. After adding my keyword, and seeing the link the site creates, I have to copy and paste this link into my email program.

                      Would it be possible to have on this page a simple "email gallery and (if selected) upload link(s) to an email address that you can specify somewhere as the default email on file for such a purpose in settings, such that it would create a canned email message that I could then…

                        • Publish only flagged images

                          To avoid creating one portfolio and one Smugmug section, I think it is much more practical to use "smugmug as a portfolio" and publish only images "flagged" by the lightroom or by other methods

                            I could stop using Lightroom CC if there was an app to upload edited photos from ON1 Photo Raw. If it worked the same way the app works in LR CC, that would be great.

                            • Add/show IPTC sublocation

                              In Lightroom and other image editing program you can add
                              a 'Sublocation' which is saved in the IPTC sublocation field in exif. This field should be displayed in 'Photo info' popup and be searchable though site wide search.

                              It would even be more great if this field could be shown with image caption and description.

                                The existing shortcuts are great. I'd love to see a few more to be used while moving through viewing images in a gallery:

                                "i" to toggle the Info display on and off (already requested, I see)

                                "f" to select "Fit" view.

                                "c" to toggle captions on and off.

                                  I use Smugmug's Folders and Galleries to organize photos and videos by date and occasion, and make an attempt to have the SmugMug file structure mirrored by the file structure on my PC in a Folder (with many subfolders), called "Organized Photos". However it is vastly easier to organize photos on SmugMug because of the ability to see the results, than on the PC. In order to keep organized, I have "shoeboxes" on my PC (often in Dropbox too) which are folders into which scans and camera pics are put as they occur, then migrated and organized in SmugMug, and…

                                  • Add a Stroke Option to gallery setup dialog

                                    I recently needed help to add a white stroke around my images which are on a dark background. This isolates the images from the background and contributes to the look of my site. Your help crew implemented this using CSS. However CSS is NOT my thing. There should be an option in one of the dialog boxes to specify the color and width of the stroke.

                                    • Create Roku APP!!

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

                                      • Skip Duplicates for Folder Uploading

                                        It sucks to have to delete 60+ folders (or a majority of folder), then have to upload them again, watermark them again, then make them public. Time is of the essence when people want to view and order their photos. Both of us lose sales when people cant see/order their photos.

                                        • Create a shortcut to the end of a gallery

                                          I love the Up arrow that you've created to get back to the top of a gallery, but it would be awesome for you to create a Down arrow to take you to the end of a long gallery instantly. As of now, you have to scroll and wait, scroll and wait, etc.

                                          Thanks for your great website. SmugMug is awesome!
