I am really pleased to see the improvements to Photosynth installed today - now the community can really start to develop. I have soem additional ideas:

1)it would be great to be able to keep some synths private, or to share these with selected firends as can be done on MSN Messenger
2)I am sure many keen synthers will fill up 20GB quickly - perhpas for a fee we could increase this?
3)it would be great to be able to download the software for use at home or on presentaiton materials
4)might be a good idea to run competitions on Photosynth - subjects can be entered and judged by other synthers?

just some thoughts!

In the upload window it would be good to be able to see larger views of the photos - since the file names don't appear it is not always possible to select the desired photo for the synth icon.

I agree, also I'd like to point out a few sugestions:

 It would be really, really nice to have a better status bar or mesage system when procesing a new synth... Something like in total commander; there are two status bars, one for overall progress and another one for stage progress. Sometimes I wait for hours and I and nothing seems to happen. Even task manager doesn't give a clue, and I get anxios thinking something is going wrong. Also would be nice to see the uploading speed and package size when publishing stage kicks in.

 Also decimate and/or noise removal would be really cool to use in some points clouds after we see the raw result and it's obvious that it would be better with more processing.

 Adjusting point size (x pixels on screen per point) would really make up for lack of meshing and texturizing. Also if the size of printed points is increased, they should be square shaped;it would help to cover more of the black background

Mesh... maybe:P

I suggest that you have a 'prompt' feature where you can suggest that two photos are of the same view or object. A delete feature would be nice as well, as too many overlapping photos tend to make navigation difficult.
