  1. Allow sync of all galleries to the Smugmug App on mobile devices

    I prefer the look of the SmugMug app to the iOS Photos app for viewing images but I often find myself in areas where data coverage isn't great and would like to be able to pull up my SM galleries on my iPad or iPhone without needing to have a data connection.

    Currently I have to go into each gallery one at a time and select it for offline viewing. The old SM app had the capability of syncing all galleries at once.

    Please add capability of syncing all galleries with a single function.

    • auto play video when in Journal style

      When a user is scrolling through a Journal-styled gallery, have the videos automatically start. Facebook style. It makes it easy for users to recognize a video (discoverability is an issue with videos). This could be a customizable option, but I think it should be the default for Journal galleries.
      Currently in journal mode, a user has to notice the tiny white icon in the lower left part of the preview, then click the preview, which opens a lightbox, then click the play button. Then they have to figure out how to close the lightbox to continue browsing the photos/videos. That's…

      • Sharing our creations for keepsake items

        I would like to be able to create a item like a coffee mug, set of coasters, keepsake box, a calendar or something like that then be able to share the exact item we created on our website or Facebook page. Then the customer could see exactly what the item would look like and it be an impulse sale.

        • Develop an Xbox One app

          You recently released an AppleTV app that only works on the latest generation 4 box due to its support for custom apps. How about sending some love toward the Microsoft and Xbox community so we can view our galleries through another ecosystem that supports custom apps?

          BTW-The Windows 10 upload applet is not what I have in mind.

          • Allow customizing of contact invitation emails

            The email your system sends when inviting a contact to access a gallery (e.g. as used in the Client Area functionality) is pretty awesome. It would be nice to be able to brand the email and change it's message content. However, at the absolute bear minimum, can we at least have the ability to change how it refers to US? The email reads "Great news! dtrimble has invited you...". It looks amateurish and a bit silly to say "dtrimble", which is also what shows in the from header. It would be super useful to be able to say my full…

            • Skip duplicates in different galleries..

              Hi after uploading I moved files to other galleries... to sort them by category. Problem is the upload stopped at about 80%... but now I can't use the skip duplicates feature to continue from where I left of..

              But if there was an option to skip duplicates across your whole portfolio then this would be really handy!

                • Add either ApplePay, VISA Checkout or Masterpass for subscription account.

                  ApplePay, VISA Checkout and Masterpass create a higher level of security because customer credit card information is not stored on vendor websites. Instead, it remains with the issuer (the customer's bank). Also, since the credit card information is drawn directly from the issuer (the bank) when credit card numbers, addresses, expiration dates change there is no need for customers to make updates on every vendor website. PLEASE add at least one of these options as a method of payment for subscriptions.

                  • Please work together with ipernity for an easy transition

                    Hi

                    Ipernity is closing down: http://www.ipernity.com/blog/team/4642052

                    Could you please work with them as you did with Picturelife to allow a painless transition to smugmug?

                    Most important to me would be to be able to keep my tags, but folders/albums and comments would also be nice.

                    Thank you! :-)

                    • Disable download on specific images within a gallery.

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

                        • Enable Move / Collect Function for galleries into folders

                          I think it would be very useful if there was the option to “collect / move” galleries into folders in a similar way you can “collect or move” images into galleries. This would make it possible to always have the latest galleries at the top on individual pages rather than having to manually deselect and then reselect to get the latest galleries to the top.

                            Often I don't want to share an entire gallery with a friend. Rather, I’d like to just share a range of photos that are relevant to my friend, such as photographs 208-214. I don’t want to bore my friend with irrelevant photos or I don’t want my friend to see personal photos that are in the gallery. Please provide a feature that allows me to send a link that limits viewing and downloading to a specific range of photos. Even better, please permit the feature to allow linking single photos and multiple ranges, e.g., 4, 14, 112-130, 208-214. I am…

                                  Please let us at least be able to delete (and hide!) photos when using a mobile browser. Please - it's 2017! You can't simply block this basic feature.
                                  I want to be able and have a look at my galleries and modify them on my mobile. It has got a display big enough for that - many customers / visitors view the pics mobile as well!

                                  • Improve ease of viewing stats for individual photos

                                    This might be long so please be patient. Since joining SmugMug a few years back I've been torn between this and Flickr. The main reason I still keep a Flickr account (less photos but with links to my SmugMug) is because of their super-easy and informative stats but having just my SmugMug would make things a lot simpler. So here are some of my SmugMug stat wishes.

                                    When I eventually dig my way into the SmugMug stats (why not a simple link from the homepage instead of going into Account Settings --> Stats --> Photo Views?) and look at Popularity,…

                                    • Buy Button and Shopping Cart Tracking

                                      I would like to see how many people clicked on the buy button without buying, what pictures they attempted to buy. If they don't buy, where did they stopped? Did they stopped right at when they saw the price? That would be usefull to adjust my prices.
                                      Also where in the process (after pressing buy) they "changed their mind, was it when they saw shipping cost?

                                      Make it so they have to click on the size to see the price. Se we know what size they wanted. So we can see in statistic, what make them backoff. We could address…

                                      • Have a help section for home users who just want to set up a family site.

                                        I tried several times to set up a smugmug site. I am a hobby Mum photographer. Now archiving my family's photo collection with a scanner.

                                        I could not get my site up and running until I found the www.photographyontheside.com tutorial where an individual has set up a series of videos showing how to set up a website using the Ludwig theme.

                                        It is very helpful however it is for a site where a photographer wants maximum visibility and to sell his photos. Also it is slightly out of date as changes have been made to smugmug.

                                        I think smumug should…

                                        • Google Analytics anonymize IP addresses

                                          As enforced by Austrian law there is a need to anonymize IP addresses when using Google Analytics, Adsense etc...
                                          Maybe there are other countries as well (like in the European Union) that have this requirement. Unfortunately there are really high fines set up if we do not fulfill this requirement.

                                          I came across this feature on other platforms (like a Wordpress Google Analytics plugin) where one just has to tick a box to get anonymized IP addresses.

                                          I just hope to get this feature implemented because this makes or breaks completely the use of the SmugMug platform.

                                          Thank you!
