  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.

        • Coupons for specific items

          I would like to be able to be more specific with coupons.. such as choose specific products or print sizes that the coupon applies too.

          • 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.

                As we have reviewed this feature and started the planning process, it was determined that other features take precedent in the current roadmap. We will reassess this feature at a later time.

              • 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.

                • 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

                  • 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…

                      As we have reviewed this feature and started the planning process, it has been decided to look into 3rd party integrations for this feature. As such, the timeline has shifted and it’s not in the current roadmap while we determine the best course of action.

                      • Support for Apple's Retina displays.

                        Now that the displays aren't just on iPads and iPhones but on the Macs too. Websites that support this (HiDPI mode) look far better, and photo sites should be first.

                            • 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.

                                I'd like the option to be able to have HTML5 slideshows on the home page and other galleries/collections in all browsers that support HTML5, not just mobile browsers.

                                In other words, give us the option to use an HTML5 slideshow instead of flash, in Chrome, Firefox, IE9+, Safari, Opera, etc.

                                • 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...

                                    • Zoom in on area of image

                                      I would like to have a "zoom" Box When someone is looking at images they move the mouse over the image and a zoom box will show areas of the image larger. I would like this better than being able to make the whole image larger. (Walmart does this on products you are looking at)

                                        • "Fit" option for full-screen layouts (home page and galleries)

                                          Add a “fit-to-screen” option to the full-screen layouts for the home page and galleries to prevent photo cropping. When enabled, the photo is displayed as large as possible without cropping.

                                          Additionally, it'd be nice to have the thumbnails bar in these layouts centered rather than left-aligned (with small photo sets where the bar does not cover the entire width of the screen), as well as an auto-advance option.
