what to do with unconnected images

I have several synths with images that are not directly connected to each other. there does not seem to be any easy way or easily understandable way to navigate from one set to the other.
It would be nice if there were some kind of overview that would let the viewer know there are other images. to some extent the 2D view does that, but not in a very clear, graphic way.

Hi, Huck.

If you're using the Photosynth viewer's slideshow mode via the Play icon, or using the [Spacebar] or [→] icon to move through the photos in Photosynth's spatial sequence, every time that you come to the end of one cluster of photos, you will be transported to the beginning of the next group and so forth until you come to the orphan photos which were unable to connect to other photos and from the last of these back to the first photo in the main cluster again.

2D view does organize which photos are connected to each other in very clear groups, with photos in groups which connected to other photos being displayed larger than photos which did not connect and generally organized from the group with the most photos to the group with the fewest.

If you use the older Direct3D Photosynth viewer (available for Firefox and Internet Explorer on Windows via a link in the lower left corner of every synth's viewing page), you can use the [M] key to move to the beginning of the next group of photos.

For more details on the Photosynth viewer's controls and interface, please read the Photosynth Photography Guide.
