  1. Import photos directly from Wi-Fi capable camera

    Besides eyefi, there are some wifi cameras like eos 6d and 70d with built in wifi.

    It'd be nice to sync photosmith directly with the camera without having to plug the camera with the camera connection kit.

      • Star color flags on right edge of screen

        When triaging photos, it feels more ergonomic to me if I was able to tap the stars or colors or flags with my thumb which is already near the location where I am holding the iPad.

            • Allow to set jpg quality for Lightroom first workflow

              Would be great to be able to modify preview jpg settings when syncing from lightroom. I often find the generated jpgs (though full size) not good enough; they loose too much sharpness and detail due to compression, makes it hard to find the best shot.

              • Collections Hierarchy (SubCollections)

                I organize my photos by year and then month. It would be nice to have sub-collections (Collection Set) so I can keep photos organized like they are on my computer. Even more awesome would be if Photosmith could read from my Folder menu (Like Mosaic)

                • Allow for rating and swiping through images to be done using a Bluetooth keyboard

                  Using a finger or pen to alternately swipe and rate images is slow and cumbersome. It could be done much faster and more comfortably if the app allowed a Bluetooth keyboard to swipe images using arrow keys and star rate them with number keys (Lightroom itself allows you to do both these).

                  • Export a low resolution PDF contact sheet for director approvals

                    When working with an approval process, it would be awesome to be able to make a PDF contact sheet (of selects) that is easily sendable instead of needing to send all images. This is a key step in many peoples workflow.

                    • Don't hide thumbnails under 2nd tagging pane

                      When you're tagging and have both panes open, the left two columns of thumbnails cant't be seen or selected. This makes using the thumbnail view quite cumbersome. If the thumbnail view would narrow down to three columns when tagging, it would be much more useable.

                      • Make it a Digital Polaroid!

                        I use digital medium format camera (Mamiya Body and Leaf Back). i looking for an app which i can use on my ipad to check compostion, exposure and focus of my Leaf Raw files, like did wirh polaroid long ago! Maybe backup and rate them at the same time. It would be perfect just to use the camera connection kit (and optional wifi) to put in the files check and rate them and continue shooting on the same card. i would skip to take my laptop, have an immidiate back and have a good idea what am i doing. I…

                        • Add a Undo button and either move the colour/star/ratings buttons or turn them off whilst filters are being applied

                          Several times now I have spent an evening rating/colour coding/flagging images only to have the entire time wasted by inadvertently applying a colour or star rating to a selection set I was trying to set a filter on as the buttons are so close. As there is no undo the only option is to start going through the images again. With a few images this isn't two bad but when your sorting through 1200+ it's not good.

                            When going through photos in full screen mode it would be great to be able to access the filter settings. Going back to grid view is a bit anoying.

                              Support for RavPower as a source for import similar as Eye-Fi support this is a great alternative for those cameras that hold only CF cards.

                              • Allow viewing of images taken while tethered to lightroom on the iPad for clients to review and rate

                                This was suggested by someone else, but declined for the wrong reason. The request is not to "add direct tethering" to photosmith, but for images that are being imported into LightRoom on the computer during a tethered session to appear on the iPad. The person holding the iPad shouldn't have to do anything when the next photo is taken - photosmith should automatically display the most recently taken photo.

                                Essentially the request boils down to Photosmith "watching" a LightRoom folder and updating as new photos are added to it.

                                I haven't purchased photosmith so I have no idea if it…

                                  • Allow the creation and syncing of nested collections

                                    So you can enable a mirror of your collections structure within the photosmith plugin I lightroom and hence on the ipad.

                                    • Instead of flip through imgs, plz Add a next or previews arrow btn on the button left corner to go next img instantly not with animation

                                      Instead of flip through imgs, plz Add a next or previews arrow btn on the button left corner to go next img instantly not with animation, coz this make it easy to compare two similar images, coz the flip animation is a distraction. Thanks a lot

                                      • Backup only the PS database to iCloud

                                        Currently, I believe enabling iCloud backup copies all the photos within PS to iCloud. This takes up too much space.

                                        Can we have the option to just backup the PS database to iCloud, ideally with multiple rollback points?

                                        • Rights Usage Terms

                                          Add the IPTC "Rights Usage Terms" field to the IPTC data. Presently this needs to be added after import to the computer, using Photo Mechanic or Lightroom.
