Do you have an idea for an awesome feature we should add… or hate the way we’re currently doing something? Share your ideas and suggestions here.
I have large numbers of photos from Seahawks games in Qwest shots of Qwest and surrounding area, including whole offensive defensive series. I've uploaded small batches to wikimedia, but really a photosynth would be the ideal way to share them. I suppose I could throw them into a massive synth which probably wouldn't be terribly synthy, but the same structure different crowds and season, on the field action might be interesting enough to make it worthwhile anyway, and I could later fill in gaps in synthiness this season. But the ability to occasionally navigate the synth along the timeline as supplied by the camera metadata strikes me as very desirable.
you can actually change the viewing order in our editing tool. If you log into the site and go to view your synth, in the right hand side of the page you will see a button that allows you to edit your synth, one of the options in the editor it to specify the viewing order, the default is in the order that Photosynth calculates, but you can also specify the order to be based on the filename of the photos, generally camera order these like Photo00001, Photo00002 for example, so if you select that option you will get the temporal effect you are looking for.
