Can U tell me how to delete images from site?
Nathanael (Over 1 year ago)
Hi, Melbournian,

You can't delete individual images, but if you're asking how to delete your own albums or 'synths', then make certain that you're signed into your account here on the site and visit either of the following links:
http://photosynth.net/userprofilepage.aspx?user=melbournian
http://photosynth.net/UserProfilePage.aspx?user=melbournian&content=Synths

Then use the 'x' in the upper right hand corner of any synth card (the little block with the title of your synth and the thumbnail image of it) to permanently delete the album.

Feel free to check back with more questions if this doesn't help.

Mtoo, whenever you're signed into the site (as you were to post your question) click the big "My Photosynths" link at the top of the page. When you see the list of your synth cards, hover your mouse cursor over the upper right hand corner of any synth card until the cursor changes from the normal pointer to the pointing finger that is displayed when you hover over a link.

Click on this spot and you will be asked if you want to delete that synth and warned that there is no 'Undo'.

Normally there is an 'x' visible in this upper right corner, however it was accidentally masked when the site's design was changed on March 18. The Photosynth team is aware of the problem and is working on getting the 'x' visible again as soon as possible.

Well, this is interesting, I can't seem to find my "x" either.  I think something has changed here!
eliscio (Over 1 year ago)
There is definitely an issue.  Tried in Firefox and IE8, the "X" does not show up, but it did allow me to delete if you hover your mouse in the top right of the synth cards.

Eliscio, ... reread the last paragraph of my last comment before yours. That's exactly what I was trying to tell you.

For more clarification, see these topics:

Nathanael,

Sorry about that...my eyes skimmed over but seems as of today, problem is still there.

Can anyone tell me how to delete the images from my phone?  I have a pile of practice photos I want to delete.
Nathanael (Over 1 year ago)
Hi, Cowgirl13, 

When you're looking at the library of your panoramas, do a long tap (press and hold) on any of the thumbnails.
(A long tap on a smartphone is often used like right clicking on a mouse on a desktop or laptop computer.)

You should get an option to delete it.

Please write back if you need any other help.

when I press the red x, when it appears, I just get routed to the next Photosynth.  When I go back to My Photosynths, the one I want to delete is still there.  So I don't think this is working.
