Copyright settings

How can I change the copyright setting to "All Rights Reserved" on a panorama that has already been uploaded? On my second ever upload to Photosynth I noticed that there were licensing options and chose 'all rights reserved'. I then went back to my first ever upload but cannot find a way of changing the copyright from the default setting.

Hi Barrie, unfortunately we don't support changing the copyright after content has been uploaded. You can however delete the current version and then re-create it with the licensing that you want.

Hope that helps.

Thanks for this. I suspected this might be the case but thought I'd check.

Just an update on this topic:

Photosynth has a new preview out with four new synth types:
Spins, Walks, Walls, and Parallax Panoramas
(not stitched panos like from ICE or their mobile panorama apps)

You upload the photos for all of these new synth types directly through the browser and they are synthed on Photosynth's servers.

There's a WebGL viewer for them as well.

Right now because the site is still in preview, rather than complete, the new viewer does not yet open stitched panoramas or original photosynths, however on any of the new type, when you look at one of your own synths, you can click the (i) icon in the lower left corner for 'Info' and you'll see an 'Edit' link.

When you click that, you'll be able to edit the photo license for any of your already uploaded synths. (You'll have a chance to set it during the upload process at the bottom of the Title and Description page.)

Hopefully, when the new site is complete this will also carry over to our older uploads for consistent behavior.
