It's good to see you having success uploading panoramas from your desktop. Did you create this with ICE? I'm curious which camera motion and projection ICE used. If you tell ICE to use a 'Rotating Camera' motion and 'Cylindrical' or 'Spherical' for the projection, then the panorama will wrap around you as you're accustomed to on the mobile app.

You might also try uploading these photos to Photosynth 2 at: https://photosynth.net/preview/upload If you want to make panoramas instead of photosynths, please download Microsoft ICE for free from http://bit.ly/microsoftice and export your pano to Photosynth.net :: To make a good panorama, the camera's lens shouldn't move between shots, so that foreground lines up with background the same way in every photo and the panorama stitcher can cleanly and seamlessly line up the photos. :: To take advantage of a photosynth's capabilities, it actually wants you to move the camera between shots so that it can compare how foreground lines up differently with background from different positions. Here are Photosynth 1 + 2 tutorial videos: http://bit.ly/howtosynth http://bit.ly/howtosynth2 + manuals: http://photosynth.net/help.aspx#photosynthhelp http://photosynth.net/preview/help

Hmmm. I'm puzzled as to why you uploaded these photos (which were clearly intended to be a panorama) as a photosynth. Looking at your profile, I see that you're very much aware of either ICE or Photoshop, as you uploaded these same photos as a pano here: https://photosynth.net/view/424eda22-8177-4f3e-8cb7-915646e87595 :: I don't know how familiar you are with Photosynth's capabilities, but whereas a panorama stitcher wants the camera's lens to stay as stationary as possible between shots and not zoom in or out, a photosynth can match photos taken from all different positions around a subject, match landscape and portrait shots, match different zoom levels and distances, etc. :: Here are some videos to get started with shooting photosynths: http://bit.ly/howtosynth http://bit.ly/howtosynth2 And you can download the Photosynth 1 and 2 manuals from these pages: http://photosynth.net/help.aspx#photosynthhelp http://photosynth.net/preview/help

Hello, Christine. It seems like you took these photos more as a panorama than a photosynth. If you download the free Microsoft ICE panorama stitcher from http://bit.ly/microsoftice and drag these original photos into it, you can export the pano to your Photosynth.net account directly from ICE 2. :: Taking photos especially to create a photosynth + take advantage of its capabilities means taking photos moving in any direction while looking at the same subject(s) + being free to zoom in or out between shots. You might want to look at these guides: http://bit.ly/howtosynth http://bit.ly/howtosynth2 + manuals: http://photosynth.net/help.aspx#photosynthhelp http://photosynth.net/preview/help :: Taking photos especially to create a panorama means trying to pivot the camera on its lens so that foreground objects line up with background objects the same way in all of the photos.

Beautiful setting! You might also want to try uploading these photos to the Photosynth 2 website here: https://photosynth.net/preview/upload If you like panoramas more than photosynths, you might want to try downloading the free Microsoft ICE panorama stitcher from http://bit.ly/microsoftice Do keep in mind that when taking photos for a panorama that the camera's lens should stay as close as possible to the same position with the camera pivoting on the camera's lens so that foreground objects line up the same way with background objects in all the input photos. :: Taking photos especially to make a photosynth instead of a panorama will allow you to move the camera in any direction while looking at the same subject(s).

Photosynth might succeed better here if you used the fabric of the tablecloth as your base/backdrop, rather than the placemats. Try taking a circle of no fewer than 24 photos orbiting each of the models or a line of shots looking down or sideways at the scene moving from one end of the scene to the other with plenty of overlap between each shot. Those sorts of things should provide a good nest or graph of matching photos for shots like these to fit into.

Also, this 'Vlasek3' synth is shot as a 'Walk' synth. In Photosynth 1 (as it is currently uploaded) I suggest using the period key [.] to advance through the photos. If you wish to upload it as a Photosynth 2 'Walk' synth, use the Photosynth 2 upload page. https://photosynth.net/preview/upload/

I love the point cloud on this. I didn't expect the bit of the room that connects the two hallways to be shaped so uniquely, but Photosynth really makes it clear in Overhead View. Your rink-side views seem well suited to panos, but a synth was definitely the best fit for this dressing room. Thanks for the look around!

My fat bike has 3.8" tires. They work well in up to 2" of snow and for cruising over the rough stuff. You'd need the 5" for deep snow. I also have some Nokian Gazza Extreme spiked tires for my other mtn bike. That works better on the ice. The fat tires don't by you much traction when the city is a skating rink.

NateLawrence (Over 1 year ago)
By the way, if you add your name to the 'Author' tag of all of your photos (you can easily do it for all of them at once using Windows Explorer/File Explorer or Windows Live Photo Gallery) before putting them in ICE, you'll see it displayed next to the photo license in the lower left corner of the viewer here.

This is a step in the correct direction for uploading your photos as a photosynth, friend. Your previous attempts are really shot more like single panoramas and should be uploaded to Photosynth.net as panoramas stitched with Microsoft ICE http://bit.ly/microsoftice or Adobe Photoshop http://bit.ly/microsoftice instead of uploaded as photosynths - which does not make a good panorama or a good photosynth. Panoramas are good for providing the view from one single camera position. (Panoramas attempt to completely fuse and blend the photos taken from one point of view.) Photosynths are good for allowing the viewer to spatially transition between many different camera positions. The nearest camera positions which observe the same objects must not be taken from extremely different angles or distances, however. (Photosynths show the beginning of the photos being combined in 3D through their point clouds.)
