SmugMug Has Had A Facelift - A pioneering new-look SmugMug website has been unveiled to UK photographers.
The largest independent photo-sharing website in the world, SmugMug, has completely reinvented its service and created a new site with 'a fresh, modern look and feel.'
Engineers have just completed two years' work on the pioneering revamp – which will enable photographers to better showcase their work using compelling 'out of the box' designs, easily customise their sites, organise their files faster and optimise new opportunities to make more money from sales.
Photographers in the UK and across the globe will be able to access the cloud-based website offering market-leading one-click professional design options; more powerful drag and drop tools on an innovative ‘site organiser’; the chance to view, edit and share SmugMug images from 'all-platform' tablets, smartphones and laptops – and all with no increase in current site tariffs.
Don MacAskill, SmugMug CEO said: "We’ve built a product that’s not only the most stunning service photographers will have ever seen but also offers easy and unlimited personalisation opportunities such as the web itself has never seen. With this new version we have combined eleven years of knowledge with priceless customer feedback to create a formidable new product."
Key Features Of The New-Look SmugMug Include:
Stunning new sites: SmugMug now offers photographers dozens of beautiful and individually customisable designs (Photo-sharing websites have traditionally provided a standard template – so every site looked the same.)
Completely customisable: SmugMug's innovative Customiser enables easy web design and allows photographers with no web design experience to quickly personalise their site with just a few clicks.
Responsive design: Every SmugMug site can now adapt to all platforms, from smartphones and tablets to large monitors.
Easy image management: The brand new feature-rich site Organiser makes it easy to manage thousands of files by simply dragging images into galleries; galleries into folders and folders into further folders up to five levels deep.
MacAskill added: "We realise sometimes change can be a challenge so we are giving existing customers the opportunity to upgrade immediately or stay as they are for the time being. However, we recommend they do make the move so they can take immediate advantage of these beneficial changes. And if any photographer is nervous about migrating to the new site we provide outstanding and rapid ‘SmugMug Hero’ support 24/7, 365 days a year across the world."
