Hi All
I just downloaded and installed photosynth and i think it is working right .
But the pictures i uploaded and can view on synth look horriable , they look a lot better on my pc useing live photo gallery.
My PC is big enough to run this program  
If this is the way it is supposed to be i guess i will just uninstall it.
I must be missing something.

Hi Carl,

What do you mean by horrible?  Are the images blurry?  The more details you can provide the better it is for us to help troubleshoot your problem.

Is it the silverlight viewer? I'm just coming off it, with not so great impressions. It's unusable compared to Direct3d. 
Photos don't zoom as smoothly. The images resolve differently. It kinda killed the browsing experience and smoothness of what made photosynth cool. I'm glad you can still view in Direct3d, and true full screen, but it's inconvenient to have to click into it every time.

Carl, you do need to give the images a few seconds to load when you're viewing them online? Every time you zoom in on part of a photo or move to a new one it will need to download those new parts of the photo. Just give it a couple of seconds to load after you move and each photo will be just as sharp as they are on your computer in photo gallery.

I took a picture of your synth to show you how it should look for you. See it here:

My bad, here's the correct link:

Darius/Nathan/Jonathan, I'm really wishing for an Edit feature here.
