  1. Download link limits

    I would really like there to be a download link download limit. I send these links to clients to download the images but there is not a way to limit the number of times the link is good for. Can this be added?

    Also can there be a counter on the number of downloads? I would love to see this to be able to regulate the download of the images.

    Lastly a custom message would be great to let clients know they reached there limit.

          • make it possible to add google forms so my clients can take my surveys.

            I use google forms for my business. I wish I could integrate them with your site. It would be so much easier for me and my clients to have them all in one.

            • Pay what you want

              It would be great to offer a pay-what-you-want feature specifically for the pricing of the download.
              This should also include an option for minimum pricing.

              This concept has shown to be efficient especially with very diverse customers, such as schoolkids, students, workers and academics.
              Mostly it leads to follow the inner need for fair pricing.

              It is also be great in combination with charity promotions campaigns.

              • Please allow (sheer gloss & sheer matte) from Bay Photo

                I take images of deep sky objects, like galaxies and nebulas, and I really need the option of printing directly onto the metal. To me, it defeats the purpose of printing an image on metal if you are just going to coat it with a white coating an print on top of it. I very much need the option of Sheer Gloss and Sheer Matte with Bay Photo, so that my images can be printed directly onto the metallic Aluminum surface.

                  • Gallery and Folder Info

                    *Folder / gallery info *

                    1. As an artist we all are smart people and understand,file size, MB ,GB
                    etc etc but not all clients are same, hence if we have a info on folder
                    whcih shows folder size/no of files so when a clients dowloads files they
                    know that they have downloaded full set.

                    • default search to newest

                      I'd like to be able to control what images show in a search result. We would prefer to set it to newest instead of photo rank.

                        • keyword structure correction

                          Currently if I click a keyword when in a folder and that keyword is used across multiple folders it will show images from all folders. Surely once in a folder keywords should restrict results to images that are found within that folder only?

                          It seems that folder structure does not reflect the 'scope' setting, what's the point of choosing which key words appear and where, when the result do not follow the same structure?

                          • Carousel without horizontal scrollbar

                            Providers like Squarespace offer a carousel without the horizontal scrollbar at the bottom of it. It's much cleaner and consistent with modern UI trends not to have a scroll bar in the carousel. Having the scrollbar in our SmugMug carousel makes our sites look very dated.

                            An example of a carousel without the horizontal scroll bar:

                                    • be able to edit color correction on/off during a purchase

                                      be able to edit color correction on/off during a pruchase. I started an order, noticed it was on for packages and off for pictures. I then changed the color correction to off for everything, but it did not order them correctly. According to my Support Hero, you can not change it once you start an order. Hoping this can be changed so identical pictures ordered in a package vs. print will be the same color. Thanks!

                                      • download arrow link is not obvious for users

                                        I want people to only download and save the full size images, not right click and save the preview image.

                                        To download the full size image, the tiny arrow at the bottom is way to small. Typical users for me are not aware that it's even there. They just right click and save but I want them to only save the full size original.

                                        Currently when I send a gallery link, I have to include instructions on how to find that tiny arrow to click to save the full size original. Without instructions people tend to right click and save…

                                        • Upload via Wifi Camera direct to gallery

                                          Hello,
                                          I was curious if I could pull photos direct via wifi from my canon 6d mark 2 and upload direct to a gallery on my site. www.richardjcurtiss.com . The way i do now i use canon connect app and pull to photo stream then i upload to my site. Only problem is i don't have enough storage so i have to do about 30 photos, erase and then repeat. My main problem now is the transfer takes several steps.
                                          Much appreciated any insight.
                                          Thanks,
