  1. Calendar Based Booking, Contracts, and invoices

    If you would like to have a Calendar Based Booking feature added, please vote. The idea is this: a potential client visits your site and wants to know your availability. She sees that a particular day is available, and clicks on that day. She is then presented with a form that contains fields of information that the photographer deems necessary. After filling out the information, the data is emailed to the photographer, and that date is temporarily booked, pending payment. If you would like a calendar/booking feature similar to this implemented, please vote now

    • Send email from my domain

      It would be far better to have emails sent from my domain than "Zenfolio [noreply@zenfoliomail.com]; on behalf of; CCG Creative Studios, LLC [sales@ccgcreativestudios.com]". This is simply not a very attractive presentation to the client. You've done a very nice job removing branding in most places for the Premium account, but this is a weak spot.

      If Google Mail can figure out how to send email through my SMTP server by letting me set up credentials in the proper way, then surely the smart people at Zenfolio can find a way to do the same thing.

        • Improved Visitor stats

          Currently the most popular Photos / Galleries leaves a lot to be desired. At the very least make it the top 10 most popular photos - but preferably have the chance to drill down on a per gallery basis. I know Google Analytics exists - but I'm not sure why we should need to sign up to an additional external account to find out info on our shots.

            • Dynamic Collections

              I would like to see the ability to set up dynamic galleries. For example, you could set up a gallery that contains all of your public photos with the keyword "sunset." Or all photos with a focal length of 200mm. Or all photos with a focal length >200mm AND the keyword "sunset." The ability to specify which galleries to pull photos from would be nice as well.

              • Email Marketing Campaigns and Templates

                A new system for email marketing campaigns and a good template system for scheduling and sending emails to clients. From start to finish of an events life cycle integration from event cards, to signup coupons and emails letting the client know the event is ready to view. Then followup emails to the client reminding them to order their photos. This could all be customized depending on the role of the guest at the wedding and it is option for the client. The client can click a box saying "Please don't email me reminders" I think this would take Zenfolio to…

                    We are still working out the exact details of getting this added, but we are planning to get it implemented once we can get those details sorted.

                  • Ordering via Mobile version of site

                    At the moment can only look at photos via a phone or tablet ... this is cutting half the sales opportunity as some people only use these items... Mobile version looks great just think we need a mobile friendly version to get customers to order.

                      • Custom options for self-fulfilled products

                        I'd like to be able to add some options for customers to choose from on self-fulfilled products. Such as paper type, colors, finish, etc. A few preset ones would be fine along with the option to add my own.

                          • Collaboration upload sharing link

                            Do you shoot events and have multiple photographers (collaborators)? Would it be useful to have them upload their own photos to your site?

                            This idea would allow users of your choice to upload photos to a gallery of your choice. This would avoid having them transfer photos to you and then you having to upload them to your site.

                            Once the photos are uploaded then you can manage them just like any other photos on your site.

                            The upload screen could be made available to the collaborator via a link sent by the page owner. Access to the link would…

                              We realize this has been outstanding for some time now, and we are currently still working to find the best way to implement this so it works seamlessly with the existing feature set

                              Ability/option to present galleries exclusively in Slideshow mode (like the Home Page). This would make for a more professional looking website.

                                • Customize contact form

                                  There should be a way of easily customizing the contact form page to add elements (drop downs, additional fields, etc.). There are several systems out there that would allow drag and drop additions and changes for contact forms so this shouldn't be difficult to do.

                                    I would love to see wall calendars available. Not the one page ones that we have now, but the one where the client can go through and pick the 12 images they want to use for each month.

                                    • True and plain CSS and HTML customization.

                                      Let me upload CSS and HTML template files.
                                      Just give us the place-holder syntax you use and enable uploading of real files. No limits. No crappy, weird online customizer.
                                      Heck I don't like borders around everything and I don't want to deal with a thousand options for different borders you used in the template...

                                      • Official Zenfolio Lightroom Plugin

                                        Zenfolio needs an official Lightroom 4 plugin.

                                        I am seriously reconsidering my loyalty to Zenfolio.

                                        From the beginning, I felt like trusting a third party application with an expensive serial number was a bad idea. But just recently I bought Lightroom 4 and upon trying to re-enable my zenfolio plugin, the plugin gives me some bull **** error code stating that the $150 I paid adobe is invalid.

                                        I just want to express that until this is fixed, I am seriously considering shutterfly or smugmug.

                                        Thank you

                                        • review shipping costs! get better deals from vendors

                                          Our customers start abandoning their carts when they see the shipping charges. Its a pitty.

                                          Shipping is a real deal breaker at Zenfolio.
