SmugMug How-To: Your Guide to Bike Tour Photos

What is SmugMug?

SmugMug is a web-based platform for sharing and hosting images and video. You don’t need to create a SmugMug account to view photos from your DuVine tour.

Viewing the Photo Album

Shortly after your tour ends, you’ll receive an email with the subject ‘Your DuVine Photos’ from your Tour Coordinator. It contains a link to the photo album we have created for you and your tour group. To view the album, click on the link in the email. Note that your photos are only visible to people who have this unique link.

Or, click the video link in the email to navigate directly to the slideshow created by your guides (it’s the same one you watched during your last night on tour). You can view the rest of the images in the album after watching the video.

Downloading Photos and Video

All your SmugMug photos are completely free to download! Perhaps you’ve found the picture you wish to include in your holiday cards or the perfect shot to frame. To download a photo or video to your computer, click on your desired image in the album so it’s displayed full-size on the right side of the screen. Under the bottom right of the image, you will see an icon of an arrow pointing down at a line. If you mouse over this icon, the word ‘Download’ should appear. Click the arrow icon to begin the download. On most computers, you’ll find the image in the Downloads folder of your computer.

Finding the Slideshow Video

A direct link to your slideshow video is included in the email called ‘Your DuVine Photos,’ which you received from your Tour Coordinator. Simply follow the directions above for ‘Viewing Your Photo Album.’ If you have trouble locating the video, it’s very often the last thumbnail in the album.

Downloading the Entire Album

Is there a way to download all the photos at once, rather than clicking download for each individual image? Yes! Once you’re viewing the SmugMug album, look on the top right of any photo or video and locate another icon of an arrow pointing down at a line. If you mouse over this icon, the words ‘Download All’ should appear. Click the arrow icon to begin downloading all photos in the album. On most computers, you’ll find the images in the Downloads folder of your computer.

Making Prints

How you prefer to make prints is up to you! Once you’ve downloaded your photos, you can print them at home, or put them on a portable USB drive for printing at your favorite photo store.

You can also order prints directly from SmugMug for a fee. While you’re viewing the SmugMug album, look on the top right of any photo or video and locate the ‘Buy Photos’ button, which appears with a shopping cart. You can then choose to buy a single photo or multiple images from the album.

If you choose to buy a single photo, SmugMug will provide options for a paper print, wall art, and more. You can specify the print size, paper, etc.

If you choose to print multiple images, you will be taken to a screen that shows the per photo price. You can select the photos you wish to print by clicking on them, and the total price will update as you go. You can change the print size, paper, etc. by clicking the ‘Change Product’ button. Once you’re finished, follow the checkout process and the photos will be mailed directly to you. Please note this is a service provided independently by SmugMug, not DuVine.

Sharing Photos

Once you’ve downloaded the images, you can attach them to an email or post them to your Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter account—be sure to share your own snapshots, too! Tag @duvine and use our hashtags (#DuVine, #DuVineStyle, and #DuVineApresVelo) so we can see which memories were your favorite.

You can also share photos directly from SmugMug using the ‘Share’ button under the bottom right of the image. A box will pop up providing a direct link to the photo, which you can then copy and paste. If you wish to share the entire album, click on the tab that says ‘Gallery’ and copy the gallery link. There’s also a ‘Social’ tab, where you can choose to share your photo directly to your social networks (including Facebook and Twitter).
