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 miss having the option of having the default behavior with both the points and images displayed. I would really like to see this added back.
We changed this behavior based on combination feedback of usability and performance concerns. Sorry you miss the old default, but this was done with deliberation. You can still make this happen by pressing the "P" key a few times to cycle though the point/image modes
As discussed when this change was made ( http://photosynth.net/discussion.aspx?cat=e57bdda7-ff98-40a1-b2ae-529b0213c2b8&dis=03dcd078-9ec5-430c-9862-59e3fcbddf14 ), I feel like it's fine for the Photosynth team to choose photos only as the default viewing mode for all synths, but the author of the synth should still have the control to switch the default view mode to Photos + Points if we so choose.
