  1. Search button in the mobile app

    I would like to see some features in the mobile app. There is actually no way to search for tags/keywords/person etc. This is really annoying if you have thousands of photos which are all properly tagged. Even flickr and the synology ds photo app have this feature (and of course many more) in their app. I think its great that smugmug has an android app, but if this is version 3 and there is so little to do, maybe the apps should get some real love ;)

      • 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.

        • Option to include or exclude watermarks on downloads through app

          It would be really useful to have the option, within the "settings" for the iPad app, to choose whether or not to include your logo with your downloaded image. It's great to be able to access the original files when needed, but it's also really valuable for my business to have easy access to lower resolution watermarked images for publicity on Facebook.

          • integrate face recognition across all galleries!

            We use smug mug to store pictures from events across the country. Integrated face recognition (across all galleries) would help us to find all the photos related to one individual who has participated in many activities!

            • Offer the same print sizes/services that your print labs do. All of them.

              We have a client who wants to order hundreds of 4x4 prints.
              Our Smugmug site is connected to Bayphoto.
              Bayphoto offers 4x4 prints.
              Smugmug does not allow 4x4 prints.

              We just lost a sale, Smugmug just lost a sale.

              Bayphoto offers many print sizes that we cannot offer through our Smugmug site.

              Is it really that difficult to allow all of the lab's print sizes to be printed through the Smugmug site?

              • Forever Albums

                Allow users an option to pay a 'forever fee' to house photo albums. It could be done a payment plan for a certain amount of GB or TB amount.

                Someday when I am gone (I'm only 57 so I hope I have many more years) the photos will not just disappear into the abyss after I have tireless worked to scan photos from over 60 albums my mother lovingly put together for myself and my 5 siblings and our children and grandchildren. She is gone now and I've been 'tasked' with making sure the photos are shared but once scanned…

                • Save shopping carts on smugmug servers rather than in the user's browser

                  Currently shopping carts are saved on the user's browser. This means that a user can't login to a different computer and access their saved shopping cart. Further, there are issues with cookies and carts often get emptied arbitrarily. To avoid all this, the carts should just be saved on smugmug servers directly. Anytime someone logs in and starts a cart, these should be synced with the smugmug server. Then issues with cookies can be completely avoided, and users can update carts on any number of computers.

                  • 2017 Calendars

                    I have had a number of requests from clients for calendars. I see that some of the vendors provide this service. It would be great if we could offer these to our clients.

                    Many thanks for your consideration,
                    Tracy

                      Time to eliminate Adobe Flash eh? Especially given mid June warnings!

                      • Please add option to import from Google Drive

                        You offer the ability to import from Google Photos but not from Google Drive. Google Drive makes it easier for me to organise photos and to import from here will help a lot.

                        • bring back the quick settings in the new gallery screen! It definitely streamlines the process for frequent users :)

                          I loved having the Quick Settings in the "new gallery" window. It definitely made my process easier as someone who creates 3-6 new galleries per week!

                              There are a few scanning apps out there but one that directly uploaded to SmugMug would help streamlining the process of digitizing old photos.

                              • Fix videos so they look good from the first frame

                                The first 5-6 seconds of my SmugMug videos look very bad while SmugMug's player is trying to determine the user's connection speed

                                Personally, if I clicked on a video play button, and saw the pixelated mess SmugMug is serving up, I would close the window ASAP and go look at something else. I am too embarrassed to ask friends and relatives to look my videos on SmugMug due to the poor start-up quality.

                                Amateur videos posted on Flikr, YouTube, etc. do not have this problem

                                Please fix this.

                                  It appears that you have an app for Amazon Fire TV but not Fire TV Stick. I hope you have that in the works. This is a very popular device now.

                                    It would be nice that SmugMug "remembers" after a page load which submenu item was selected and automatically opens the top-level menus and highlight it.

                                    It applies to accordion.

                                    At the moment, I had to apply a CSS hack to make it work:

                                    CSS code:

                                    /* expand if sub menu-item selected */
                                    .sm-accordion-item-has-children.sm-page-widget-nav-hasactivepage:not(.sm-accordion-item-open) ul.sm-accordion-children {
                                    display: block;
                                    }
                                    .sm-accordion-item-has-children.sm-page-widget-nav-hasactivepage.sm-accordion-item-open ul.sm-accordion-children {
                                    display: none;
                                    }
                                    .sm-accordion-item-has-children:not(.sm-accordion-item-open) > .sm-accordion-item-action > .sm-fonticon:before {
                                    content: '\E034' !important;
                                    }
                                    .sm-accordion-item-has-children.sm-page-widget-nav-hasactivepage > .sm-accordion-item-action > .sm-fonticon:before {
                                    content: '\E035' !important;
                                    }
                                    .sm-accordion-item-has-children.sm-page-widget-nav-hasactivepage.sm-accordion-item-open .sm-accordion-item-action > .sm-fonticon:before {
                                    content: '\E034' !important;
                                    }

                                    • Allow easy deletion of unviewed galleries

                                      After a number of years, I have some old galleries that are not ever viewed. I would delete these (and save you storage space) if I had an easy way to determine that they have not been viewed.

                                      That is, more search terms needed in the photo views section. And a new feature next software update that includes galleries that have had zero views for a long while.

                                      (btw, I've had a gallery get 70 k views in one day and then none after a while.)

                                      • Ability to EMPHASISE fotos in a gallery

                                        Adobe Revel had this feature:

                                        give the photographer the ability to select SPECIFIC FOTOS a GALLERY, that are shown EMPHASISED (bigger - about 2 times) in a gallery.

                                        Extra: To take it even further, these informations could be read from stars in the meta-data.

                                        Example: Event fotos: Users tend to pick / download the 2nd or 3rd best shot! Never the BEST → If it would be shown bigger, they would tent to download the best.

                                        • Keep the solid green line when showing the number of views of images. The dots are very hard to follow

                                          I study the number of views of my images daily. Recently you began showing the day-by-day graph with a solid green line. In a few seconds the solid line changes to green dots for each day. The dots are, for me, very hard to follow. I would like to see you keep the solid green line.
