Thanks to the folks who have gone public with their new layouts. I appreciate it.
My first impression is that Smug has some cleanup work to do. I see a lot of sloppy stuff in the layouts -- head that don't fit, icons that bleed over into images and such.
And the wild inconsistency in the Copyright Notices has me concerned. I sent this email to the Copyright folks:
Looking at new layouts other SmugMug customers are using, I do not see consistency in Copyright notices. Some have no notices on pages ("Photo Sharing by SmugMug" and nothing else), others "Copyright 2013 SmugMug, Inc."
On my current (not-converted) pages, it says "Portions Copyright 2013 SmugMug, Inc."
The terms of service I've tried to read don't make it clear to me that I retain copyright of my images, although the notice on my current page seems to bow to that idea.
Has there been a change in the terms? Does such a change become effective with conversion to the new layouts?
I'll post any response I get here!
All that is customized, and most is carried over from what you had before.
For example, the thumbnails can be cropped(heads cut off) or they can show the actual shape of the image with no cropping. Copyright notices can also be set.
As to copyright:
