  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 ;)

      • allow users to upload images to gallery featured image instead of choosing an already uploaded image.

        Instead of having to choose an already uploaded image for the folder/gallery featured image, allow users to upload images that aren't displayed elsewhere. This would be useful for uploading client images or coming soon images.

        • 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…

            • 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.

              • Allow us to have a say before you give our clients unnecessary refunds

                I would like to request that when my customers contact SmugMug in regards to their orders, that I am notified first before decisions are made by SmugMug to give them refunds. I have now had thousands of dollars of profits refunded to my clients, when I could have taken care of the situation and avoided the need for a refund. I would like a note put on my account to notify me of client contact before a refund is given. I understand your “satisfaction guarantee”, but am frustrated that you are dealing with my clients and not allowing me to…

                • 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!

                    • add a "are you sure you want to delete this" message to the delete button.

                      In the app currently, when viewing a photo and clicking on the "share" icon to get to the "delete" or "save to camera roll" options - they are right next to each other, and some of us have fat fingers and end up accidentally hitting delete instead of save. Would love to see a "Are you sure you want to delete this?" message so you have to confirm deletion before it's gone.

                      • Add A4 Prints to Loxley Options for UK & Europe

                        My customers constantly ask for A4 prints to fit frames they already have. At the moment we have to ask them to buy a 12” x 9” print and cut it down with all the scope that has for misunderstanding and error.

                        Since Loxley produce A4 prints as part of their standard range it would make sense to add the option - and other A sizes too - to the price list.

                        • Need to be able to order different pricelists from the same gallery.

                          I cannot have customers choose "photos from this gallery," because the photos in a gallery have different price lists. That means I am going to have to explain to customers that, even though the site says NOT AVAILABLE, they really are available, but you have to choose them one at a time. This is completely deceptive to the customer. It is crazy to set it this way!

                          Doesn't seem I can show a photo here.

                            • Create a way to "mark" photos to take action later

                              I'm looking to use SmugMug as my safe harbor for all my photos & videos, as well as a place where I can find my favorite highlights and share with friends and family. I know about selecting those I want to "collect." But as I thumb through hundreds of photos it's way faster to simply "mark" those I want to put in a collection album as I go before actually collecting them. You have a "heart" option for clients of photographers but not photographers themselves. Currently there's no way to do it without creating a zillion keywords for each separate…

                                Since there are ways to integrate in an app- maybe you can have an app that can text or share the photos instantly by text or email.

                                    • Autoplay slideshow

                                      To save time & simplify when displaying photos create "autoplay" global feature that allows the user to pre-configure a particular slideshow to play on app start. This has multiple advantages:

                                      1/ Greatly streamlined & uncluttered user experience when showing customers their photos
                                      2/ Opens the app up to wider usage (eg as a standalone display configured to show particular photos on start - great for marketing or personal use).

                                      Should be a fairly simple feature to add.

                                      • 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?
