  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

  2. 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.

  4. Option for people to request to be added to mailing list

    An option displayed "Please add me to your mailing list" which automatically updates the Contacts list would be invaluable. Currently you only get people's details is theyleae a comment or email you but most people only browse and do not leave comments.

  5. Search Improvements

    I'd like my visitors to be able to search within their current gallery, regardless of privacy settings.

    For example, I may have a "hidden" gallery (as explained in "Mastering Access Control"), the link for which I provide to friends and family. I'm not looking for real security here, and particularly for older members of the family, passwords and logins are too much hassle, and too confusing. This gallery may have a couple of hundred photos in it, of ancestors and extended family, all tagged with names. I'd like for my visitors to be able to search that gallery for a…

    This feature has been reviewed and given the current roadmap this will unfortunately be not able to happen in 2016. We will reassess at a later time.

  6. A more streamlined purchase/checkout process

    This idea has been posted already, but it needs votes. Please let Zenfolio know that you'd like a more streamlined shopping cart. Less steps in the checkout means a better client experience and more revenue.

    Please help this cause.

  7. Allowing panorama photos to scroll left & right on screen

    Like SmugMug when you view a panorama you can zoom in or scroll left and right. Most panoramas looks too small on 1 screen if it cannot be scrolled.

  8. iPhone Safari/Mobile Web Based Photo Download for Clients

    The biggest complaint I get from users visiting my galleries on the iPhone is that the swipe to navigate feature disables the tap+hold to save photo feature of safari. While I don't expect you to fix safari, can you add a download photo function to the mobile/iphone version of your gallery?

    Many of my clients want to download a photo and upload the photo to facebook. Sharing a link isn't good enough since people can't tag their faces, so actually being able to download a photo then upload it on facebook is necessary.

    I would recommend a [Download] Button with…

  9. download all low resolution photos

    It would be nice if we are able to download ALL the low resolution photos from a gallery. That way I can just give my clients a link they can use for their facebook upload with my signature.

  10. Rating/voting button

    a rating or clicking number of stars or a voting button available to all viewers of a photo. This would help the photographer to assess his best/ popular photos.

  11. Bigger size of images in galleries and slideshow.

    I have a 27 inch display and when I open my images in full screen mode the size of them do not show the quality as much as they should. I have account in the "other" company as well and when i look on my photos on their website they look much better - it is not the process they use - the photos are bigger and this is what it makes the photos look better. I can not stay with the "other company" because they do not have european lab - us only.

    I think by changing the size…

  13. I want the customer to have the option to have the music or not.

    I want an option on the homepage at least where the customer can turn the music on or off. I for one do not like websites that have music and I know others are like that but I do have music on my homepage because all it is is a slide show. Some customers like it and others do not, so I think there should be an option like on MOST websites that have music to mute the music.

  14. improving the search function

    I need my stock clients to see more than 500 images returned in the search. The Global Zenfolio search opens them up to searching my competition. Photoshelter returns all the images tagged with the keyword(s) searched for, even if there are thousands.

  15. Autoplay for Videos

    Most software tools for creating and uploading videos to blogs or web have an autoplay option because it dramatically changes the experience of visiting the site, especially if the video has music or audio.

  16. View In Room technology

    I'd love it if Zenfolio could implement a "View In Room" feature to image galleries whereby a client could select an image and view how it would look on an actual wall in an actual room at various sizes and with various framing options.

    Exactly what what ART.COM does now - check out the "Room View" showcase used by ART.COM.

    It has a collection of different interior rooms (living rooms, dining rooms, bedrooms, kids rooms, bathrooms, kitchens, etc.) and any image that is selected from their site can then be viewed in various sizes and frames in the various rooms!…

  17. Allowing visitors to save MULTIPLE smaller images using the SELECT PHOTOS feature

    I want my clients to be able to download all of the "Large" sized photos with my watermark on them in one click. It is so annoying that they can only download one at a time!

  18. lightbox option needed

    It would be much more professional seeming for a client to pick a set of images and then review them before settling on the final few to buy.
    We'd need a checkbox to select (like the 'buy' button ) and then the lightbox app.

  20. Disable visitor Login in mobile version

    It is not possible to disable the visitor login in the mobile version of a website. It is distracting when opening it on a mobile smart phone. I have clients think they need to sign in in order to view the pages. It can be disabled in the desktop version, but not in mobile.
    Can we fix that?
