New Card Catalog, Customized Sites, Buy Links, Bigger Bay Stickers and bug fixes
The Card Catalog
To kick off the new year, we’ve launched a brand-new way for you to browse photo cards. Check out our new catalog!
Browse by occasion and sort by type. It’s intuitive, bright and easy. Just the way it should be.
If something grabs your eye, click it to get more details. Love it? Hit Make this Card to fire up our card creator and start dropping in pics.
If you’re a Pro selling cards to your clients, they’ll still need to get started from your gallery’s Buy button. Of course, you can send them to browse the new catalog and see the full array of tasteful templates.
As always, let us know what you think! And if you’re new to our photo cards, look here for help.
Smashing SmugMug Sites
Was “Customize” one of your New Year’s resolutions? We’ve updated our examples page so you can feast your eyes on some of the juiciest, sexiest and most creatively customized SmugMug sites that totally flick our Bic:
Remember that you can always change your site: Everyone can do it with Themes. Power Users and Pros also have the super-simple Easy Customizer and Advanced Customization is ready and waiting for your code. We even provide lots of help and a forum. What are you waiting for?
If you’re still unsure, we’ve provided a lengthy list of talented, certified customizers that earned our seal of approval. They know SmugMug and they know the photo biz. Trust them to listen to your specific needs and whip up a site that makes you (and your clients) swoon.
Check them out, browse their portfolios and contact one for a quote. There’s something there for every Smugger… and every budget.
Need to Nudge? Share a Buy Link
In case you’ve got friends, fans or clients who need a subtle hint, we’ve added an additional URL under the first two tabs of the Get a Link feature:
Copy and share that with anyone you wish. When they click it, we’ll present them with our shiny shopping cart all prepped for them to add some prints and check right out.
Of course, we’ll only show that line if you’ve enabled printing in your Gallery Settings. Share on!
Size Does Matter
Pros: Bay Photo is amping up your custom order branding with bigger, bolder, better stickers. Now your message, logo or design will be 2×4 inches stuck on the outside of your clients’ orders. That’s twice as big. There’s absolutely no question who took those gorgeous pics with that staring them right in the face.

- Some IE7 Pros were having trouble getting their 1099s, but everything should work great now. (What-what?)
- We made the Digital Zoom ratio in your Photo Info box match up with what your camera says.
- Spirited keyworders noticed that keyword links were wonky when clicked instantly after being entered. This is now fixed.
- Interested in working with our API? Our welcome email points you to the proper page on our Wiki.
- URLs with %s in them should now properly convert to active links when entered into caption fields.
Here’s to wowing your fans together,
