  1. Support for iOS native image folders in the SmugMug App

    Right now, when uploading images through the SmugMug iOS App only the "All Photos" and user created folders are presented - all the iOS provided folders (e.g. Favorites) are not available. This is very painful as using the Favorites is a very integrated part when working with images on an iPhone.
    Additionally, almost every other App is offering the native iOS folders for selecting images, so: implement/use the iOS integrated folder selection for choosing images when uploading pictures through the SmugMug App.

    • change to black text on white background in the organize, content update pages, etc. etc.

      i hate working on the black backgrounds and white text. Really difficult to read, especially if your eyesight isn't perfect. Puts me off so much it's taken me two years to start really customizing my site.

      • Add a cheaper (lower priced) print lab for the UK

        Add a second print lab for the UK where the prices are lower although Loxley have great quality but too pricey

        A print lab which brings the price point for a 6" x 4" print down to around 30 -40p Loxley although great quality charge 90p base price for this which will deter many buyers

        • Highlight the menu item for an open page.

          Highlight the menu item for an open page.

          That's what smugmug.com itself does by underlining the menu item for an open page.

          Right now, a menu item on my personal photo site darkens when a viewer mouses over it. The item should stay highlighted to show viewers just where they are.

          Seems like this navigation aid is among the most basic in all of web design.

          • open your product line to include hi

            What really is the difference between a photo and a painting other than where the image comes from and how it is captured. Once digitized, it is essentially the same and both photographers and painters have the same wants and needs. So, would you consider opening up your product line to include fine arts painters and their work as a category?

            • Search Functionality within iPhone & Android app

              Add a search function within the Android and iPhone app. I have numerous folders & galleries which I would love to search.

              It is challenging to recall exactly where all folders are and uses excess data while seeking.

              Thank you

                • events organizer

                  Might it make sense to have the ability to manage Events using the Organize tool, instead of being buried in the Selling portion of Account Settings?

                  I understand Events are Selling-centric -- but the UI in "Selling" used to manage which galleries belong to an Event seems a bit limited.

                  I think the Organize tool would make Event management quite a bit nicer.

                  • Loxley Phone Covers

                    I have been in touch with Loxley Colour and they said they had said you all the details so that we could add their phone covers to our price lists.
                    However, you haven't done this yet. PLEASE get your fingers out on this one.
                    Cheers,
                    Matt

                    • 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…

                      • Add a way to rate photos

                        Please add a way to rate photos. I love the way you can star the best ones in Lightroom and then filter out all the bad photos. It would save so much time looking through them a later on. If this was added to the Lightroom plugin, it could seamlessly carry those ratings over into Smugmug.

                        • Allow for copy and pasting of entire address into input box when ordering

                          When you enter the shipping address you have to go through the process of typing or copy and pasting each individual piece of information/field into your name and address fields i.e. name, last name, address, zip, state etc. While this might not seem like a big deal, it is very timing consuming when you have to enter 10 to 20 addresses for orders into the Smugmug system each day.

                          Smugmug should allow you to also paste the entire (US) address into a box and then have a (java)script put the information into the correct address fields. This would save typing…

                          • Make SmugMug interface similar to Lightroom'sthat your final image, "JPEG" will be in a "SmugMug" folder and be synced with my web page.

                            SmugMug could even sell the apps to use, but I think "loyalty rewards" would be better! many time I want to redo a picture in a gallery, Lightroom's interface just give you a few more options, yet it could all be done with Smugmug, having a permanent catalog on the hard drive where your final JPEG is stored, and you could make changes to the photo anytime, their always changing.

                            • qrcode-image of picture/video'url in Share form

                              Share 'video url' via qrcode representation.

                              To put a video into a print-book, usually I copy the video's url to a qrcode generator, Then I download the qrcode-image and add it, as image, into the book, beside still picture. Then video became part of book (anyone can start the video on his smartphone by simply qrcode-read).

                              To automate these work, in the share form , I suggest you add a qrcode-image generated beside the direct url.

                                  Video quality is very high. The ability to order prints from the frame of a video would be great.

                                  • Wrap text around an image

                                    I know I am able to wrap text around an image by writing/editing HTML. This assumes the user has HTML knowledge.

                                    Would it be possible to create a feature, enabling the wrapping of a block of text around an image? As opposed to only being able to place the text above, below, to the left or to the right of the image?

                                    Thank you.

                                    • Phone number in contact form

                                      It would be nice to have the option of having a telephone number appear on the contact form. There could be a field in the profile for a phone number, and for those that want the number to be shown, provide it in the profile. If you don't want it shown, do provide it in the profile. Really no different that how profile photos are handled

                                      • 4k app on Playstation 4 Pro

                                        I have a new TV with a gorgeous 4k OLED HDR 65 inch display, and no decent way to view my pictures on it. The world seems to be moving backwards when it comes to displaying photos from my home network on my TV; my previous Xboxes and Playstations had great support for this going back 10-15 years.

                                        I have no interest in upgrading my 3rd gen Apple TV, since the new one with it´s new Smugmug app only supports 1080p. Please, won´t you make an PS4 pro (and Xbox One S) app that could display my Smugmug galleries in…

                                        • Watermark Size Adjustment Slider

                                          Give an adjustment slider in the Watermark Management section to allow user to quickly adjust the watermark size they wish to apply to a particular gallery.
