    The search bar is extremely disappointing coming from the same company who tries to compete with Google.  Theres no option to sort by views, numbers of photos, percent synth, etc.

    Looks cool –  but when I try downloading – Norton Internet Security blocks the site, detecting a malware trojan!  Shame on you….

    What a waste of time and talent. Did you ever hear of a movie camera?

    Photosyth is so awesome! I’d like to add a few suggestions to make it even better.

    – It badly needs privacy settings for wider adoption. This is the one basic key feature that is lacking which has nothing to do with the software.

    – I want to download it like picassa and all the other programs on the internet. I assume that uploading it on a website was some bad idea pushed by marketing? Photosynth is not youtube.com or facebook. Picassa give you the option to publish to the web, not force it upon consumers to annoy them.  If marketing wants to make money offer premium features for businesses and freebie it for consumers. Have them learn something from Google and leave the developers alone.
