SmugMug has always accepted an unlimited number of your JPG, GIF, and PNG files and we never want you to have to shrink, degrade, or alter you images just to put them on your SmugMug site. You may now upload photos as large as 150 megabytes and 210 megapixels. This is an increase from 50 megabytes and 100 megapixels and adds support for all large megapixel cameras on the market.

If a file exceeds those limits, we'll try to resample it (in the case of too many pixels) or recompress it (in the case of large file size) to bring it within the limits. If we can't, you'll see an error in your upload log.

Additionally, we'll now accept files that are embedded with virtually any color space and properly convert them to sRGB. Use one of the pre-defined color spaces like AdobeRGB, ProPhoto RGB or use your own custom profile, SmugMug can handle it as long as the profile is embedded within the photo.

For more information please see our help page at http://help.smugmug.com/customer/portal/articles/93278 and, as always, our Support Heroes are always here.

    This is a welcome change. Thanks!

    I can go out and get that Hassy with the new CFV-120c (120MP) back now and upload with impunity. (Please don't tell my wife)

    Seriously, though, with Canon's 51MP 5Dsr and the new Sony 56MP sensors, the old 50MP limit wouldn't cut it.

    Any chance of a similar change in video?

    More specifically I'm hitting the time limit WAY, WAY before the size limit. At least in theory, do you really care so much about time as space?

    Oh... thanks.

    Video is a little more complicated because there's the storage aspect as well as the processing power aspect. I'll discuss with the team though.

    In regards to video, I'm hitting the sound barrier. The lowering of sound quality in a video to 128kbps is terrible. Does anybody listen to music at such a low quality?
    It should be 320kbps minimum. Sound doesn't even use that much space!
