Yeh, Rev., ...confirmed. How irritating.
I can understand the desire to change the default viewing mode since many point clouds aren't exactly adding so much to the photos experience, but, honestly, the three viewing modes remain, so which one is used for initial loading should remain in the hands of the author.
As it stands, there is now no way for me to choose the default experience of photos in the context of the pointcloud. To be perfectly frank, in terms of desirability, one photo at a time in the context of the pointcloud would be preferable to photos in the context of only other photos in many cases, since it is moreorless impossible to align photos taken from very definitely different points in space. Don't get me wrong; I don't want photos in the context of other photos taken away; but neither do I like the ability to show individual photos within the larger context of the pointcloud as the default view taken away.
