Hi.  I created a synth and the program did not link all pictures in the correct place.  Is there a way to re-enter the synth and edit?  Also, I cannot find my synth anywhere except through my own log-in page... is there a trick to making it availabe for other people to see?  Thank you.

Currenlty to edit the synth you would have to recreate it and exclude images you don't want to be in it... ie, the images that didn't match up. (We're working on some other ways to help you edit synths you've already created)

As for people finding it... there is an explore filter for recently created... but it looks like your synth has been pushed off that list by newer synths.  People can always find your synth by searching for it:

or it's easy to search with your name, and you get all your synths

darius, I'm sure some people have found that deleting non-matching photos and then re-synthing doesn't always result in 100% on the new synth. It doesn't seem to be an exact science, something which is also apparent when using dedicated photogrammetry progs i.e. different noise levels from exactly the same stereo pairs.

These synths use the same imagery (bar 1 photo) but the point cloud is different on the main synth:

Interesting stuff :-)

yeah i couldn't find my synth either--only on my own page. and it didn't synth all the pics that i put on it, only 30 the first time with a 5% and 10 pics the next with 32%,, what is that about?

Consider that Photosynth needs common reference points between images in order to work.  Looking through your 5% synth shows a few images that have little or no points in common.  If you want better results, taking more shots of the same place should work well.
