A few things I hope to see in the not to distant future...
  • smart albums
  • find photos not in an album, via a smart album most likely
  • blue sync complete dots too overpowering in square grid view, just show the sync not finished icon then go away
  • custom sort order for folders and albums in sidebar
  • ability to search on any part of file name. currently must include beginning characters
  • text overlays and badges (has edits applied for example)
  • when rating, flagging, etc. of a stack, all contents tagged as well, not just cover image
  • temporary trash, 30 days or whatever
  • auto stacking based on short time interval, useful when exposure bracketing
  • map view for geo tagged photos, ability to add geo locations photos on map as well
  • segment all photos view somehow, by month maybe
  • zoom less then full screen.  50% or whatever
  • HDR merge and pano stitching
  • ability to send more then one photo at a time to Photoshop so HDR or stitching can be done there
  • raw + jpg workflow
  • list view of photos with columns of metadata 
  • uploads sucking all bandwidth, throttle somehow

Hi Mike,

Wow! There are a bunch of great ideas in that list.

This forum is able to track votes for feature requests like these but each idea needs to be a separate post for that to happen. You can also search the forum for feature requests that match your own and vote on them. I've found a few for you. 

Thanks for the great ideas and input and please consider putting some of your other ideas in single posts so the rest of the community can vote on them!

I primarily use iOS on an iPad. 10.5. I would love to be able to apply a keyword (or two). To multiple images simultaneously.
