Typically there is lots of movement in a Second Life region. Clouds, animated objects, avatars etc. Right now, this movement can cause discontinuities in the image (because we actually take several separate pictures in sequence). We hope to be able to freeze everything while we take pictures, but this has not been done yet.
The viewer interest list system only sends information about objects that are in your field of view. Objects outside this range are not sent or updated. This presents a problem when you are forcing the camera to look all around you while capturing the snapshots. We believe we can overcome this, but for the moment it helps to turn around and look in all directions slowly before taking the picture.
The current viewer saves the resulting image to your local disk as a zip file; see below for how to view it. Before this becomes a standard viewer feature, we will provide ways for you to share the images.
