Topic: Can't change synth thumbnail

I'd like to change the little thumbnail image for my synth that appears when browsing/searching, but when I edit the synth, I don't see an option to let me do so.  I can change the initial image when viewing the synth, but this doesn't change the thumbnail.  So, I must be missing something!  Can someone point me to where this is done?

Thanks!  Here's the synth:

Charlie, we dont have a way to do this right now.  We have a feature to make this possible in our backlog list, and we're hoping to get to it soon.

You choose your thumbnail photo when you first make your synth. When you add your photos and just before uploading them, there is a thumbnail that appears on the upper left hand corner. Right below Create Synth there is an option for "name and thumbnail" and a button for "Use selected photo". You choose your image which you want to appear for browsing/searching at that point before you start uploading your synth.
Highlight which image you want and click "use selected photo". If you still have the original photos you have to resubmit them with the new thumbnail choice.
I just discovered this myself and chose a browsing thumbnail for my most recent synth. Luckily I had all the original photos to do this.

I am waiting for this feature too.
I forgot to set the correct thumbnail before synthing.
Now I have the initial photo set correctly, but there is no way to change the thumbnail which appears on the Photosynth site, as well as on BingMaps.
