New Photosynth Features in June Update

Sign in to queue


The Photosynth team released their June update and it's looking better than ever. The site has had a design tweak, you'll now see a featured synth on the home page. The search results are much improved and you can sort your result set by popularity, date, author, and even synthy-ness.

One of the coolest updates is the ability to "highlight" the photos you want. In the image for this post, you can see the grouping of photos that make up this statue. A previous update made it so you can hover over the object and get arrows that allow you to dolly around the object. But what if there's a few really good pictures you want to point out? By highlighting these photos you'll see they show up on a right side rail. Try it out here, or here.

You can go back and choose highlight photos on any of your old synths. Just log in, browse to your synth, click the new "Edit Synth and Highlights" button. Now you can browse your synth, when you get to a picture you want to highlight, click the Add Highlight button. You can put in a title, caption, and change order of the highlights.
