Topic: Synth with picture from different time

Hi, I have the chance to have many pictures of a place took at different times.
The place is an island in Grece (Amorgos). Most of the pictures I have are from film took between 1977 and 1987 with pictures from digital camera from 2006.

Here is an example of my synth :

Trying to synth these pictures I noticed that usually photo took at the "same time frame" seems to synth perfectly when pictures took at different times don't synth even in scenery with very little change.

Watch this :

Photo took at the same time are synth together, but no photo were synth "across time".

I understand that the "synth engine" can have issue with different lightning, and different "grain" in pictures (most pictures were took with a digital camera) but is there any "tips" to enhance the pictures to help the synth engine ?

It seems the "synth engine" takes the time when the photo was taken as a critical factor, for I also noticed that photos taken sequentially with sharing parts synths better than those what taken randomly yet also with sharing parts.

Will there be some ways for the author of the synths to help the "engine" to locate where the photo should be, even after the uploading was done? None of us can say we are satisfied by the alogorithm's results - sometimes even dipressed!

Dipressed !?!
Have a look on my REDDRAGON (search this tag in one word) 100% synthy; should have been perfect and a crazy result I had never seen before :-(((

Keep on ;-)))

One thing you can try to do to help photosynth connect between "time frames" is to take an image from the exact same direction both times.  That way, if those two images connect, one will connect to the first time frame, and the second will connect to the second time frame.  This will create a bridge that will pull all the images together.
