I've uploaded 1000s of photos to flickr, which has an api, would it be possible to sideload a set of photos from my flickr account to photosynth to save reuploading?
That's a great idea. I'd be surprised if you've shot densely enough for Photosynth if you weren't specifically targeting Photosynth, but I'd love to be proved wrong on that one!
