"These will never synth" was my first thought when I looked at this. Then I started to look at the pictures and read some of the stories...........very touching.
Then it occurred to me, photosynth is a good program for viewing, and reading documents as well.
The ability to zoom in and move around single flat pictures with no point cloud.
Oh wow I thought the point cloud was everything............not always it seems!

Thanks for the comments. They are very moving stories. There is more at

I agree with your sentiments. Photosynth, specifically the deep zoom feature provides an awesome tool for viewing large documents, especially hand written ones, like the children have written. It presented an excellent way, via montage of telling their stories.

Sorry :-(((
I didn't view any synth here, and I didn't learn anything about Photosynth; This sort of galery, even for African orphans, should'nt be here.
My idea!

I had a hard time getting that to load from the embed link, here is the direct synth link:

P.S. @pierrot21 Each person will have their own opinion on what is great or not great.  The point of this forum is for people to share what they enjoy most... creative uses of Photosynth are encouraged as well.  I'm pretty sure the person who made this synth new that it wouldn't "synth" very well, but they were interested in using the photosynth viewer to share some stories... that's ok with me.

What if all the churches, governments, politics, schools aso put their programs on this site and the links to raise funds :-(

completley different issue - how do you get the semi-full screen that this synth appears in? I would love to convert my synths to this format! Is this due to the embedding?

Yes if you take and use the link in the embed code provided by the tool, it should result in a semi-full screen display upon rendering.
