Topic: Adjustable slideshow speed

The speed of the slideshow should be adjustable (without manual start/stop interaction)...right now it moves too quickly for the full http://photosynth.net/inc/images/icon_checkmark.pngresolution to show.

Unfortunately, my friends are not impressed with the viewing so far, probably because individual photos jump too easily for them, but thanks for the interesting site.

Actually, when using the "lightbox" of all the photos together, I just realized that you can click on a photo in full screen mode, which zooms it to near full screen, and then use the arrow keys to move between photos as desired.  Does not provide the Synth overlap, but sometimes that is too busy a view.  And to zoom in a few stops more for full resolution, if the mouse on the the left, I can click on zoom in and use my right hand on the directional arrows to move between photos as desired after waiting for the details to load.  This option should be pointed out to users with an example in general help?  I wonder if the Control+/- combo works for zooming...that i will try, but better, without using a mouse would be maybe the Z/X keys for zooming in/out?  Going farther, gestures and voice activation might be desired for others.  Time to add more staff!

Yep, the control/shift +/- works for zooming;  also discovered that the number key pad +/- works easily as well for zooming.  Needs to be a Keyboard shortcut reference page for slow learners like me.

Check out the photography guide for the shortcut keys. :)

The auto pan is great, but it would be awesome if the pan would follow the sequence the synth was made :)

I'd just like the pan to be slower.

Quico and Wildespace, you appear to be talking about panoramas instead of photosynths.

In the panorama viewer, try clicking the second icon from the left (looks like angle brackets) in the viewer's control tray to switch the panning mode. 

When it switches to a hand instead of brackets, you should be able to click somewhere in the panorama and hold the mouse button down while moving the cursor to pan at different speeds. 

The further you move your mouse cursor from where you originally clicked, the faster it will pan and the closer you get to where you originally clicked, the slower it will turn.
