Do you have an idea for an awesome feature we should add… or hate the way we’re currently doing something? Share your ideas and suggestions here.
first I'd like to gratulate for the job you all did. Photosynth is really a good programm. Thank you!
But I have something that disturbs me when I watch a synth. I noticed that there is allways a white border that apears when I move the mose over the current picture. I suspect that this border shows that if I click on it, the next zoomed picture appears. Unfortunately I think that it is disturbing. Perhaps there are other persons that think like me.
I hope that there ist a way to remove it, or a feature that switches it on or off.
Thank you for this grate work.
The border you see is what we call a "quad". When you're looking at an image in a synth, there are a lot of other images that we can show you from the same position. Some of these we turn on partially (they look a little faded), but if we show all of them - the scene would get too crowded. Instead we offer the quad - just enough information to let you know that something else exists there.
If you wish for it to turn off, just stop moving the mouse. It will fade away after a second. We have an API to turn it permenantly off, but I don't think it's available on the website.
