Aye, I agree. I like the thumbnail strip along the bottom of the viewer as it's a throwback to the CTP Photosynth viewer from 2006/2007/2008 but you actually missed a month or so there where before the thumbnails showed up in the geo-align control where there was a miniature Photosynth viewer embedded in the right hand side panel which functioned completely as normal, while the frustum of your current position showed in overhead view in the main window, as it does now. This meant that you could play the slideshow, use [,] and [.] to navigate in filename order, etc. In short, there was just more control over what order you moved through the synth as well as the benefit of just setting the slideshow up and being able to sit back and observe the camera move through the scene.

Amusing. Still working, as of T12/22. BTW, during geotaging alignment you can get an interesting frusta viewing, albeit in plan view.

Swami, I just found a little quirk in the current viewer that lets you escape being locked looking straight down in Overhead View. This means that you retain viewing the camera frusta (or at least one frustum at a time) when hovering over features in the pointcloud + its image's thumbnail, but you can see it all from ground level. I don't know how long it will last + it is only good until you click something but you can use the WASDEC{L:" controls to move your position around while retaining the frustum in 3D. Kind of cool. To do this, first find an image that affords you a nice wide angle on a bunch of images in front of you. (I like this one: http://photosynth.net/view.aspx?cid=b7b9e5b0-300b-4d0b-9f80-c5616e797c48&m=false&i=0:0:413&c=-89.666:8.37931:-5.15263&z=1201.14955936163&d=2.63748835224558:-2.30296804001743:-2.53981947437323&p=0:0&t=True ) 1) Switch to Overhead view. 2) Use the [~] key to switch to Grid and then back again. (You must use the keyboard.)

Tnx, Jonathan. Just to be clear, I successfully added two highlights of the same image. The problem is in how they are handled in the sidebar. If you're still unclear, plz see my previous comments. FYI, I just posted another synth from Hiroshima: "Children's Peace Monument (Hiroshima Peace Park)" http://photosynth.net/view.aspx?cid=fba55285-0788-41b5-8cfd-f4450621ff52 . It's nowhere near as synthy or extensive (in fact, was not intended as synth), but it still tells a story and shares the experience.

we actually didn't add anything to prevent someone from adding the same photo as a highlight more than once. Eventually (we have a ton of features to build) we'll upgrade highlights to be a specific spot on a photo - not just the entire photo. thanks for the excellent synth!

Yeh, it takes me back to my childhood, watching the BBC's production of The Lion, The Witch, and the Wardrobe. Definitely some Rumblebuffin compositing going on there. =P

@Nate: Yeah, I like to have fun w/ my fotos:) Glad you found my little SuperMayan. At least I know one person went exploring. Did you find any other surprises? One is VERY BIG:) Also, did you notice I wrote a blog about it; even has a video (well, audio at least) of howler monkeys in the morning? If you've never heard them you should definitely check them out! Tnx for playing along:)

Supermayan... that is a riot! Haha.

dariusmonsef, Glad u njoyed:) BTW, if u missed it, there's a video (dark: mostly audio) of the howler monkeys in the blog's photo album. A thought: Connect Photosynth w/ travel blog site n vice-versa. It did start as virtual Tourist, after all. I basically i made this connection, but a more integrated "partnership" method could b nice n desireable. Mayb even get Virtual Earth in on the action! Whatcha think?

Just notices why some of these clumped... and it's not because of my pretty face (haha). It's mostly due to background objects. But, as I commented in a previous related experiment, it would be cool to have an option in Photosynth match based on facial recognition.

It was amazing! Not just the huts. El Panchan was a way cool, laid back, backpacker/travelers' hang out. Here's a blog w/ lots more fotos, too: http://www.travelpod.com/travel-blog/swami_worldtrav/1/tpod.html
