    In the SmugMug authorization website please enter your SmugMug account (the Email you used to register with SmugMug) and your SmugMug password. PhotoSync requests access to your SmugMug account and lists the necessary permissions after a successful autorization. When you tap Accept you will be redirected to PhotoSync and after a short moment your transfer starts.
