Topic: Notes in Synths

I would appreciate the ability to add notes to my syths similiar to the way I can add notes to my images on flickr.

For instance in my syth of my collections room (http://photosynth.net/view.aspx?cid=1765a8fe-987b-4de1-88a5-95092845f117) I would like to be able to tag things and write a little note about where I got it or why it's important.

The notes would be tied with the object pictured rather than to only one image. Maybe it needs to be limitable to range of angles to avoid seeing a note for something that is actually hidden from view.

I think this would increase the usefulness of Photosynth.

Thanks!

Hello Kevin, 

I’d like to see that feature also.

As a workaround, you can include text on duplicated images within synths and it seems to work ok(ish):

Admittedly, the latter is more of an online PowerPoint presentation but with wonderful zoom.

I made this one it it can help : http://photosynth.net/view.aspx?cid=541aaff6-96dc-427c-9a91-7c5364e54a9b

I think you could do it in your synth, by writing with Photoshop (or athor) the text on only one zoom-picture for each object; this pic wouls still synth with others, but the text would appear only if clicking this special one;
