Can I share photos via email?

Updated: 03/27/2014

photo sharing via email

You'll usually find a Share button above or below the photo or video you're viewing. Some Gallery owners turn off Easy Sharing in their gallery settings so this button will not show up.   Click the button to fire off an email with that photo or video? inside.

The email will also include a link your fans can click to see your entire gallery.

Here's how:

Click that Share button and select "Send an email" from the menu.

Note:  You may also see just this icon on some pages like the Lightbox in New SmugMug.  

After clicking you'll see this:

Click the Preview Email button, then click Send Email on the next page when you're ready.

Fancy or plain?

So-called HTML email looks fancy, like a web page. From the Can't Please Everyone Department, most love it but a few don't.

You can please everyone, however, because SmugMug sends both plain and fancy together so the recipient will automatically see it the way they prefer. Their email program chooses which one to display according to their preferences.

The HTML version is shown when you click the Preview Email button.

FYI: You'll need to make sure external linking is toggled to yes in your gallery settings? so that the photo will show up properly in your share email.

Has anyone read the email yet?

In your Account Settings?, you can see statistics on every email you've sent out, including how many people have viewed each email and how many people have clicked through to see the gallery full of pictures.

Do I get an address book?

Logged in SmugMug subscribers can add email addresses to an address book, but we don't support importing addresses from other programs, sorry!

Business account users will find an "add to SmugMug address book" link at the top of each order in their Sales History?.
