SmugMug Offers A New Way to Sell Video Slideshows

Our friends at SmugMug have added a great new feature to their already stellar service. Pros can now sell video downloads just like prints. That’s right…just set your price and your customers can pay for a digital download of your video slideshows up to 1080p HD.

You can offer up to 5 different sizes of video downloads in both Personal and Commercial licenses. Here’s a breakdown:

  • Web: up to 320 x 240
  • iPod/DVD: up to 640 x 480
  • Mid-Def: up to 960 x 540
  • Hi-Def: up to 1280 x 720
  • Full HD: up to 1920 x 1080

Your customers can then add the video to their cart and check out. Video downloads are available immediately. Instant gratification for you (cha-ching) and your clients!

How to Get Your ProShow Slideshows to SmugMug
If you’re a ProShow Web user, simply create your slideshow online and select SmugMug as your output option. Enter your SmugMug log in details and your video will automatically transfer to the gallery of your choice.

ProShow Gold and ProShow Producer users will need to manually upload videos to their SmugMug galleries. But no sweat, it’s easy. In ProShow, hit the ‘Create Output’ button, select ‘Video’ and choose your format (MPG, MOV, etc.). SmugMug supports a ton of video formats so pretty much anything you select will work. Then, log into your SmugMug Pro account and upload your video. Easy as pie!

That’s it. Once your video is uploaded you can set a price and start selling your video downloads to clients immediately!
