Can’t seem to get something to synth right? Curious about what lens is best? Ask your fellow Photosynthers here.

Strange, and comments/suggestions more than welcome.
I've just tried a Synth with 202 photos.  Each set of pics was taken as advised, that is pointing the camera around in sequences.  Pics were carefully numbered 1-202 in the order they were taken.  Sounds easy but..
Uploaded 202, Synthed as 200, viewer says 192, and the darned things are so out of sequence! Titled "My new kitchen" and captioned as going from old thru clearance to new, instead the Synth view in a sort of random order with old kitchen and new kitchen photos appearing haphazardly. So how do I get Synth to accept all my photos, and Synth them sensibly in order?

I'm a newbie...be gentle with me. LOL

Hi Carl,
  did you use the , and . keys to move backwards and forward, or the space key?  The ,. will move backwards and forwards based on the file names.  If you log in you can also edit your synth to change the slideshow order, by default it does not use the filename but uses a sequence chosen by the synther, but you can change this in the editor tool.

Thank you Douglas,  I didn't use the keystrokes to move through the Synth because I was too intrigued at the way PhotoSynth messed around with the file order.
Editing sounds good, but with 200 odd photos the task is a leetle daunting.  I will have a look at that though.

Thanks again my friend

Cybershadow - the edit Douglas was refering will take 30 seconds.  Simply click the "Edit Synth and Highlights" button to enter edit mode, then goto the "Settings" tab at the top.  Now just click the "By Filename" radio button under "Slideshow Order" and click the "Save" button.  There you have it, done.

Tony thank you for you added comment.
The sort worked as you said, but for some reason some images are out of focus, presumeably because Synth could not stitch cleanly to the adjacent image.  It wasn't quite so easy as I had to locate the start file number NK0001 from the mish-mash of a layout in the grid view, got there eventually though.

In Direct 3D Viewer the order is still random, and no sign of an edit button that I can see (!) Have you any ideas on that problem please?

Thanks gents for all you help so far.

Hi Carl,
  the D3D viewer doesn't support changing the order of the images only the Silverlight viewer (the viewer that loads in the view.aspx page).  When you say images are fuzzy, do you mean they look like they are really low resolution?  I looked at your kitchen sink, sometimes it takes a few seconds for the higher resolution images to download so the images were blurry for a short time but they should always swap to a higher resolution eventually.  Were you seeing the images not resolve properly?  Can you provide a share link to an image that looks fuzzy to you (in the view.aspx page there is a share link icon just below the synth description text, you can click on it and paste the URL into this thread)?
