Auto backup of iPhone pix a breeze

As a casual, non-pro photographer, I’ve been a Smugmug user since the company launched. It’s an intuitive tool for uploading images from my “big” camera to share with family and friends. The desktop interface is easy and sensible and you can tell the UX is thoughtfully created by photographers for photographers. The iOS app is equally easy and the BEST feature for my busy mom life is automatic iPhone photo uploads. I don’t even have to think about just works.

I find that smugmug is far superior to dropbox, which isn’t designed for photography by any stretch and chokes when a folder has too many images.

I’ve also recently discovered that iCloud back up deletes photos in the cloud if you delete them from your phone, creating a problem if you’re trying to free up space on your iPhone. However, with smugmug, once you’ve uploaded a photo, it’s there until you delete it. Smugmug’s iPhone back up organizes images by month into a private folder that only you have access to until you change the upload folder’s settings. No display lags or choking despite the thousands of selfie pix and vids your kids load onto your phone. A few times a year, I open the smugmug app and bounce it onto our Apple TV for an old school family photo night, cracking up as we take walks down memory lane.

I love this pragmatic and feature-rich tool. Thank you smugmug! Thank you! ❤️

Almost there

I was a long time Flickr and Google Photos user. I have to say that Flickr is probably the best, I just don’t feel secure with Flickr being around a long while. This is my first time giving Smug a shot. It has potentials. It’s nice to have the ability to use templates to create photo sites and galleries. I even find it a tad faster to upload batch photos than Flickr or Google Photos.

If Smug can figure this out, they would be perfect! I would love to have the ability to double tap with a single finger to zoom in. I’m a pixel peeper and it’s important. Also would be nice to swipe down on a full photo view to return back to the gallery view. And I’d like to view the exif data without having to reach my thumb far up to the more icon in the upper nav bar. These are basically the mental model that users have towards photo apps. But for some reason, I either have to use two fingers to zoom in and zoom out or at times it doesn’t even let me zoom in at all. Please update this and you’ll have a paying member for life. And I’d actually open the app a whole lot more.

Otherwise, I’m currently paying for storage and a slightly improved upload speed more than anything else.

Large files freezing on upload

I have been trying to upload photos from a recent Central America trip. Three times the upload has stalled at approximately 2/3 completion. I made the suggested changes to my settings and the problem remains. Reading discussions on this topic, I see it’s a continuing problem. What a waste of time!

I tried again another day and the large file (number of photos) froze again about 2/3 of the way. This time I was able to exit, determine the number of the last photo accepted, and continue uploading from that point. Success!

I really like everything about Smugmug but found that exercise frustrating. Finding a work around leads me to updating my review to a more positive one.

Developer Response ,

We hate hearing that your photos won’t upload. When you say large files, do you mean a large *number* of photos, or their actual file size is large? We’ve been hard at work squashing all the uploading issues (and you’ll see that we solved the issues for most of our customers), so any additional information so we can continue fixing this issue for you, would be very helpful!
