Feature Requests / Website and tutorial English language improvements
« on: June 07, 2020, 12:01:37 PM »
As an inexperienced user, I’m trying to use the website and various tutorials, which can be super helpful. I notice though that sometimes there are some infelicities in the English used. Is there a good way to give feedback on those, or ask for someone better experienced to clarify what’s being said? Thanks.

General / Beginner's question: photo vs camera alignment
« on: June 04, 2020, 06:08:10 PM »
Do I understand correctly that the terms "photo alignment" and "camera alignment" mean the same thing?

An example: using the Workflow menu, I align photos. That process shows up in the log with that phrase. Some of my photos are unaligned. These now have "NA" next to them in the workspace pane, which I take to stand for "not aligned". This corresponds to not having a checkmark in the Photos pane. However in the workspace, they are not referred to as "photos", but as "cameras". The alert box that pops up at the end of alignment tells me: "Some photos failed to align. Please resent alignment for incorrectly aligned photos and rerun photo alignment.

In both the workspace and photo pane, there is no option for resetting photo alignment, only camera alignment. I take these to be the same thing. If I do choose that option, the log reports "Camera alignment", as if it were not the same thing as photo alignment.

If these two things are identical, it would be less confusing if the same term were used consistently.

Relatedly, if I run Align Photos from the Workflow menu and don't have "reset current alignment" checked, is that the same as choosing "align selected cameras" from the contextual menu? (Also note that that checkbox doesn't say either "photo" or "camera" alignment, just "alignment".)
