Basic Account customization options

Updated -

As a SmugMug Basic account holder, you'll have access to all the Gallery Styles, Hierarchy, Organization, and Content Management tools we've created. Plus you'll be able to customize your site's theme!

Note: While you're in trial, you'll have access to all our available customization tools—even extra perks above Basic level. But once you convert to a paid account, you'll lose these extra features. Check this list to learn what isn't included unless you upgrade to a Power, Portfolio, or Business plan.

Get started

Start by clicking on the Customize link in the header toolbar and selecting Site-Wide Theme.

You'll be able to see what each theme will look like on your homepage. Change the theme until you find the look that's just right for you!

When you've made your decision, click on Done to publish your chosen theme—while knowing you can change your theme at any time to suit your mood.

Once you've got a theme in place, consider adding some Content blocks to your Homepage.

Personalize your homepage

From the Customize button on your Homepage, click Content and Design to reveal all the goodies you can add to your homepage. You'll have access to Content, Themes, Background, and Layout.

On this example, we've added the Profile block (found under Social) and a Folders, Pages, & Galleries block displaying our available content.

All Basic accounts also include video uploading, storage, and playback!
