Topic: Putting Panoramas Back in my App?

I removed all my apps temporarily, including Photosynth. I thought it would save my photos in my iPod anyways. I never really had Wifi so I didn't upload almost ever. All of them are gone now. Luckily, it had saved all of them on my camera roll which I transferred to my computer. How do I put it back in my library or online? (Over 1 year ago)
Hi CaptainMorgan,
The camera roll images are flat images.  Sorry to say, but your panos are gone.

Why the heck do they make them on your camera roll then?

CaptainMorgan, sorry for your loss. That's really tough. 

The reason that flattened out versions are saved to your camera roll is so that you can show your panorama to people who don't have Silverlight or the Photosynth iPhone app installed. That is to say - you can email the flat version or add effects in Instagram or upload to Flikr or Facebook. 

Unfortunately, traditional image formats like JPG simply don't have support for wraparound images. What I mean is that not every app that opens JPGs is capable of 3D projection, so if Photosynth gave you its cube map in your camera roll it would look distorted (moreso than the flattening out on a single plane distorts it) + disorganized to anyone who didn't have an interactive panorama viewer installed.

The tam is working on getting their HTML5/CSS3 viewer working in all modern browsers + when that is finished anyone who has a modern version of their web browser of choice will be able to view your uploaded panos.

Typo fix: "The tam" should read "The team".

Also, Adrian is on the team and I am not.

User A3rdParty reports that by using the unofficial tool, iExplorer, you can restore an app's data from a backup (if you've made a backup before).

"hey there´s a way to view the panorama but not on photosynth. Download Pixeet 360 from the app store (it is free). Enter Pixeet 360 and tap open panorama, search the image on your camera roll and tap it. You will see the image just like in photosynth, and there is a really nice feature in this app, augmented reality!! You just have to tap the icon on the bottom right and you can move the iphone to watch the panorama just like if you were there. By the way photosynth should add this incredible feauture"
