SmugZei (SmugMug for Muzei)
by: Ondrej Cermak • 60
SmugZei is a Muzei extension, which allows using any SmugMug gallery as the source of the photos for Muzei.
What is Muzei?
"Muzei is a live wallpaper that gently refreshes your home screen each day with famous works of art. It also recedes into the background, blurring and dimming artwork to keep your icons and widgets in the spotlight. Simply double touch the wallpaper or open the Muzei app to enjoy and explore the artwork in its full glory.", from Muzei's description.
Get Muzei from Google Play: http://get.muzei.co
What is SmugMug?
SmugMug is an online gallery, which many famous photographers use to publish their photos for everyone to see and/or buy. Anyone can create his own gallery there, with wide selection of designs for the web page. Check it out here: http://www.smugmug.com.
Who is on SmugMug anyway?
Trey Ratcliff, Scott Kelby, Thomas Hawk, Karen Hutton and many others. These are just the names that pop into my mind. I'm sure you'll find a bunch of other great photographers there.
How to change the source gallery?
Set any SmugMug gallery as the source simply by sharing the gallery web page with the SmugZei extension. Look at the screenshots or follow the in-app tutorial to get the idea how to do it.
By default, the source gallery is set to Trey Ratcliff's Portfolio gallery, which contains his beautiful HDR photos. For a lot of people, this could be the only thing they need from this extension - to see Trey's photos.
SmugZei always downloads photos in the maximal resolution of your phone, so they look sharp when you unblur them.
Note that not every SmugMug page is a gallery. The extension searches for the ATOM feed url in the shared page, which is only in galleries.
The name SmugZei is a combination of SmugMug and Muzei, because I wasn't sure if it's possible to name it "SmugMug for Muzei" due to copyright reasons.
