Hello everybody
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.

Hi Celine.
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.
