I suggest you ...

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".
(thinking…)

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  1. Sort the "Add Photos and Video" source list by most used, or allow hiding of sources that aren't used.

    When adding photos, it would be great to either hide sources that I don't use (like Facebook, Picasa, and Instagram) or to sort the list by most frequently used sources.

    I realize that you can just click "All photos and videos" but its still visual clutter for those that don't use those services.

      Hi Eugene! Thanks for this suggestion. You make a really good point and we have some ideas about tackling this. Is your default album typically ‘camera roll’ or do you source from other albums equally?

    • View favourite / liked photos

      I know there are notifications when people click on the heart button but I am wondering if you could add a tab or just something within the existing search function to view these photo's only? Both in the app and on the website, it would be good to view all the photo's that people have liked and then even filter it by child too.

        Hi Nick! We think this is a great idea and something we must have. We don’t yet have a timescale but we’ll be sure to update here when this feature is available.

        Thanks for your patience in the mean time!

          Hi, Brigid! Thanks very much for this.

          We have a search function on our Website, but we hope to make this much more advanced – and eventually included in our apps, too.

          Can you share which criteria you’d most like to search by? Title, tag, comment, date, etc?

          Thanks!

        • make it easy to develop single photos from within the app/web site

          Add a feature so that you can develop single photos directly without downloading and without having to make a full book. Or is there already an easy way?

            Hi, Frida! Thanks so much for the suggestion about prints.

            Right now there is no way to create single prints, but we are looking at this capability. And we’ll see how many votes or requests this gets from our customers.

            By the way, which device are you using lifecake on most?

            Thanks!

          • Photo Editing

            It would be great if there was a built in photo editor to add things such as filters and maybe stickers, a lot of companies charge for stickers so you could have a set free sticker pack and charge for other premium ones.

            It would be great to just be able to make small edits to photo's and then upload within the app itself rather than editing them in another app and then saving them and then uploading them, it would also free up space on devices...

              Hey Nick! Thanks for the suggestion. We are looking into our options to offer basic photo editing within our apps and from our web – it is definitely something we want to do.

              I’d love to know how you (and others) would like to use stickers. What type of stickers would you be most interested in?

              - Ed, the Lifecake team.

                    We’ve had lots of discussions about this as a team – as we can absolutely see the value – but we’re not sure when we will add this yet. But we will update here when we have news!

                      HI, Meg! So sorry for the delay in responding to this. We’ve been thinking about your suggestion and how to make it easier to invite loved ones.

                      The challenge is always balancing our need for complete security with the desire to make everything with lifecake fun and easy. The shared link is great for the latter but not as good on the former. But we will keep working on this!

                      Thanks so much for the great suggestion.

                        When the notfication of somebody joining the lifecake arrives, please add the original email adress for this person in addition to their user name. Today sometimes people join that I cannot identify via their user name. It would be helpful to have their email address next to the user name, so at least I know who uses e.g, the user name snj or sas or nsa.

                          Hi, Bjoern! So sorry for the delay in responding.

                          The notifications you receive about people accepting your invitation should be using the first name they give us when they sign up. Is it not doing that?

                          We have held off on including the email address as we have some size limits on the notifications and sometimes the emails can be quite long.

                          Thanks!

                          • Exclude low-resolution images from photo book layouts

                            If you add photos from e.g. Instagram, the photos are too small to print well in a photo book, so if you auto-populate (e.g. my child's first year) it puts all the images in but with warnings about print quality - you then have to remove each one rather laboriously. It might make sense to exclude any images which are under the required print resolution, or at least allow filtering by size in the drop down underneath the drawer.

                              Thanks, Meg! We usually exclude lower-resolution photos by default, but do you have a lot more than 100? If it’s still showing lower resolution ones even when you have higher quality photos to choose from, then we might need to investigate to make sure we don’t have a bug.

                              Please let us know if you get a chance. Thanks so much!

                                Hi, Khilna! Thanks a lot for the suggestion. We like that song, too :-)

                                We don’t currently have a specific way to track songs, but for our kids and nephews and nieces we actually use the story option to write the name of the song and any details. (I also added a video of my nephew singing his favourite song -‘Rocket man’ by Elton John – and my other nephew dancing to his favourite song, Kaya).

                                But we’d love to add even more ways to capture these in the future. Please keep the great suggestions coming!

                                • When you untick another family members added child, the associated comments should disappear as well as pics

                                  Once you have accepted an invitation from a family member to add their child to your timeline you see their pictures and comments alongside your own. If you just want to then view your own childs pics you can untick any other child names and the pics disappear leaving just your child, but all their comments are still there.

                                    It would be nice to have a lock code option on the iOS app for better security.

                                    • Can you provide a backup service for the content I upload ?

                                      If I were to post all my pictures and images of my son, I would definitely go over your 100 GB VIP service. Do you offer more storage options? A good idea might be to provide a hard copy of the uploaded content in some sort of media. Maybe a few Blu Rays Discs?

                                        Hi! Thanks a lot for reaching out.

                                        We currently enable people to go over the 100GB limit with no charge. The stated limit is really to prevent abuse. But if we see a lot of demand for a really large amount from many people, then we may introduce another level.

                                        We’ll have a think about your proposal, too – sounds a really interesting idea!

                                        In the meantime, if you ever have concerns about limits or how it all works, just shoot us an email at feedback@lifecake.com, and we’ll get right back to you :-)

                                        As I put in more pictures and videos, I'm noticing that many are being put in the bottom row (hidden) until I click on it. Can you look into making a Calendar view by Month/Year to make things easier to find? Maybe make 1 picture the cover of the day in the month.. ?

                                        • Roku

                                          Are you going to launch an app/channel which is compatible with my Roku 3. I need to be able to display my photos on my smart tv via my ROku box like I can do with Picasa.

                                            Hi, Greg! To be honest, this is not in our plan right now as yours is the first request we’ve had on this (and our priorities are really guided by what our customers request most).

                                            But we certainly think it’s cool – as we believe ultimately the TV will be one of the best devices for lifecake – so we’ll see if this idea gets more votes from people!

                                            Thanks for suggesting.

                                            Nick from the Lifecake team
