Delete a photosynth account

  • Question
  • Updated 10 years ago
I created an account using my work passport account when testing, but there is NO WAY to delete an account once it was created - nor a way to transfer that account to use another e-mail address that I can find.
1) Can you delete an account name once created?
2) Can you transfer that account to ANOTHER e-mail account so I could sign-on to taht account name using a different e-mail passport account to get into the Photosynth account?

Hi Tom, unfortunately we don't support either of those scenarios. If you do create a new account and re-create your synths, you will save on some of the upload since your images are already on our servers.

Hope that helps.

Nikhil, you don't have to delete your account in order to delete an individual synth.

To delete a synth:
1) Sign into your account on http://photosynth.net/
2) Click on "My Photosynths"
3) When you see the page with the list of your synths, hover your mouse cursor over the upper right corner of the black rectangle that contains the synth thumbnail and title. When you hover over the upper right corner, you will see your cursor change from the regular pointer to the link icon. Click in this area and you will be asked if you really want to delete the synth. Just say 'Yes' and you're done.

As of 2010 July 14, you can either rename an account or delete it.

Just sign into the site, go to your profile page, and look on the lower left under your username and bio.
