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.741 votes
This feature has been reviewed and given the current roadmap this will unfortunately be not able to happen in 2018. We will reassess at a later time.
I would like to have the music you experience constant throughout a visitors visit to my site. It would very much help the cohesiveness of the site. It doing so it would be nice to set a group of tracks to play so one piece of music is not replaying in the event someone is on a site for any length of time.643 votes

After reviewing this feature request, it has been determined that while it’s possible to add html into the header/footer and custom pages, there are currently no other plans to have individual page html customization
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 you478 votes
While we do not plan on designing a separate Lightroom plug-in, we have substantially increased the available support for Jeffrey Friedl’s plug-in and a implemented a better communication with him to quickly resolve issues as they arise.
I wrote zenfolio with the following questions... "I am hoping to set up 2 different websites... with 2 completely different layouts. I would like to place a different logo at the top of the page and would like to change the header and footer links. It would also be nice (but not essential) if I could keep my records for the websites separate as well (such as tax info, visitor count, etc). The only way I can think to achieve this is to create a whole separate account... obviously that would mean paying my fees again. Is there any other solution? ...could Zenfolio offer an additional account for premium members or something like that?" They responded by saying.... "Happy to help. To have 2 sites separate as you describe you will need to have 2 accounts." I'm not paying for a second pro-account and don't think we should be expected to.

We’ve implemented the option to give accounts to assistants, second shooters, etc. If you have two businesses, you need to create two accounts. You can use the referral code from the first account when opening the second account to save 20%.
This is not currently in our roadmap, but may be reassessed in the future.
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...322 votes
Custom pages are available for HMTL and coding, and we are working on improving those options to give even more flexibility.
Guest Uploading To Your Galleries From Events & Weddings
Being able to upload guest photos to your galleries alows the bride an groom or attendies to see a different more candid view, plus it will add to print sales for you asyour clients might want to print a photo that a guest took. We all know that guest sometimes have more fun when someone they know takes the photo of them.

This is not on our current roadmap, but may be re-evaluated at a future time.
We could really use something for bulk uploads. Selling event photography with 2,000-10,000 photos a weekend, we could really use some FTP, SFTP or some bulk uploader with folder hierarchy support. The tools out there now don't retry if something fails and are too slow. Java and web applets are not the answer here.299 votes
As noted before, currently we are not planning to implement FTP, but we are working on a desktop uploader. Thus, I would like to mark this feature request as “Declined”. If you want specific features for the desktop uploader, let’s start another idea.
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)285 votes

This feature has been reviewed and while it’s possible to combine songs into a single sound file and for use as a soundtrack, there are currently no plans to develop this feature further.
I am sick of people signing in as firstname.lastname@example.org with fake emails. Wish there was a verification option in place where people couldn't sign in without a valid email address.194 votes
At this time the only proper way would be a two-step verification, which is too elaborate for a feature like visitor sign-in

I would like my clients to be able to order fine art prints direct from my galleries that match the quality of the prints they get in their Folio Album. Folio already offer the product, I'd just like people to order without me having to do the back end work.150 votes
If you want to keep me as a paying customer you'll have to do a better job supporting an Aperture to ZenFolio upload solution and/or helping the author Dave Holmes with his freeware version. It has never worked reliably for me and many others my reading the forum.126 votes
Aperture is no longer a supported program
Zenfolio has allowed Google Analytics on user Zenfolio pages. I tried searched the forums regarding Google Adsense, and it seems like no one has been discussing it, but I would like to be able to insert Google Adsense ads on my Zenfolio site.113 votes
After the buyer has ordered the print a logo is automatically inserted in a pre-chosen place on the print at a size that is speced to the print size.112 votes
After review, it has been determined that with the watermark option and disabling of cropping available, this feature is not in our foreseeable roadmap
