Topic: adding and removing photos

It would be very helpful if the original upload photo list could be modified after a synth is made.  This would allow photos that do not synth correctly to be removed without going through the entire synth creation process.  Also, it would allow new photos to be added later.  Any plans to add this feature?

A related question, how was the Venice synth made (the one used to show how overhead views work)?  Was it made all in one step or were developer tools used to assemble all of the photos?

RSP, I hear you on wanting to remove or hide the photos that didn't synth in and your idea of editing the names of those that didn't make it should work.

On the other hand simply adding photos to the list of photos in a synth wouldn't get them synthed in with the rest all the synthing is done on your computer before the synth files are uploaded. You would still need to redo the calculation (or "synthing") on your computer, comparing the old and new photos to each other to add new photos to an existing synth. This is almost exactly the same process that happens when you recompute a new version of one of your synths today. All of your photos from previous versions of the synth are not uploaded a second time unless you've edited them since first using them. Because of this the "entire synth creation process" is shortened a good deal.

Don't misunderstand me; I too wish that I could edit my synths. I simply hoped to provide an explanation of what was involved.
