They do that so that only the best people can come in ;-))))
no, I'm joking
I believe you don't need a profile if you just want to 'explore': explore first and you will see if you are interested by creating
We all had the same problem to suscribe; it's very very unfriendly first (but then it's a lot of fun!) Keep on and try again. Anyway you will loose a lot of time later, because it's a very original software (beta-version) and it doesn't work perfectly: sometimes you get great surprises or bic disapointments !!!

You'll need to log in to the Synther with the same LiveID that you're using on the web site.  You might try logging out of the web site then logging back in to make sure you have the right e-mail address.

You can also try going to Tools->Internet Options->Connections->Lan Settings, and then turn off the proxy server if you have one.

Here's a post on our GetSatisfaction forum that might be relevant:

Eric,

I see you've managed to post a synth on your profile. If you want a good synth you will need at least three different photos of the same thing. For example: three or more photos of a corner of a building or three or more photos of the front of your sofa or one side of a tree.

Once you've found what photos make a good synth of one detail of an object, you can combine different parts of the same object, but you will need photos of everything that connects those single details.

With respect to all of you who have been able to create synths, there is still something about this software that doesn't work.  I've loaded my photos into the app and pressed "Synth".  It does whatever it does and the progress bar gets about 90% to the end and stops.  It says how synthy the collection is, and the "Create New Synth" button is active, the "Pause" button is inactive.  For all I can tell, the application is "done", except for the part where I have a completed synth.  So, in that respect, the software does not work.

There are no error messages, hiccups or other indications that the application is unhappy.  It just doesn't do anything.

Thank you, dariusmonsef.  So what does "You have no recent synth activity. " mean? 

I guess I'll look for the other one later on today. 

Could be I think too much.
