Announcing global navigation changes and browsing enhancements.

SmugMug is for more than just photos. We’re here for your videos and RAW files, too. Therefore we are making some terminology changes in our global navigation to reflect this. These changes include Photos renamed to Library and Photo Site renamed to Site.

Finding items in the SmugMug Library is done by browsing and searching. This release includes a number of features to enhance the search and browse abilities in the SmugMug Library, namely:

Focused Search Page.

A focused context-sensitive search interface allows you to filter, sort or refine your search results. Once you have found the items you were looking for you can select one or many items and take actions, such as deleting, downloading and modifying keywords.

Smug Improvements

Browse By Date.

Most users use dates to organize their SmugMug items, but run into problems finding a specific photo when they don’t remember exactly when a photo was taken. Browse by Date provides an interactive way to browse your SmugMug Library, surfacing the time periods when photos and videos were created and a simple way to visually browse your photos within that time period.

First, you are presented with a grid grouped and labeled by the year the item was captured.

You can further drill into a year by clicking the image and you are presented with each month that contains items.

Once you have clicked on the desired month, you are presented with a search page that displays all of the items captured during that month. From here, you can further refine your results, by filtering by type, sorting and entering search terms and results are generated in the context of that month.

This is just the start of an amazing year and beyond. We are dedicated to sharing out changes and improvements as they are made. Tell us what you think! Leave a comment below or start a conversation on TwitterFacebook, and Instagram.
