I wonder, why only a few images are loaded at the same time. An image tha was already loade when I move to other section of the sinth has to be loaded again later, witch make the navigation very slow because I have to see pictures with very poor resolution until they get complitly loaded again. There is no way that every picture can get loaded and stay there in memory when I get back to it?? Why this happend, is very frutratint.

Thanks fot reading, Sorry for my bad english

In Spanish:

Me pregunto, solo unas pocas imágenes están cargadas al mismo tiempo. Una imagen que ya fue descargada cuando me muevo a otra sección del sinth debe ser cargada nuevamente luego, lo que hace muy lenta la navegación por que tengo que ver imágenes con una resolución muy pobre mientras es descargada nuevamente por completo de nuevo. Existe una manera de que cada imagen que se descargue se mantenga en memoria para cuando yo regrese a ella? Por que pasa esto, es muy frustrante.

Gracias por leerme, Disculpen mi mal inglés.

Hi gsolarino.

A large synth can have multi-hundred megapixel images. If we kept the entire synth in memory, it could get quite prohibitive, esp. in the case of lower-end machines. Photosynth uses a cache to make sure that the amount of memory used by the program has an upper limit. We tried to find the right balance of memory, graphics card memory, bandwidth and CPU usage that will work well on a large set of machines.

If you have a high-end machine but a slow internet connection, then images may resolve more slowly than they would have had we used a larger cache.
