Release Details below:

For ArcGIS Desktop 10.1

New Features
– The Pictometry Update ArcMap site now contains the latest release of Pictometry for ArcGIS Desktop – Connect.
– The Query tool has been renamed to the “Identify tool” and results are now shown in the Identify Results window.

Issues Fixed
– Layers are now rendered on maps when the map contains TIFF image layers, enabling the use of ESRI base maps.
– When attempting to extract a non-Pictometry map (Bing maps, for example), users are notified that “This tool can only be used on Pictometry images.”
– An error no longer occurs when a user pans to an image that they previously viewed.
– Slow network connections no longer cause an issue when using the Add Image tool.
– Images added to a map will correctly load when the map is opened at a later date.

Known Issues
– Images added to the map may be discolored. This is a bug in ESRI’s stretching algorithm. The workaround, until we can find a fix or update from ESRI, is to set the stretch method to “None” as follows:
To set the default stretch method for a particular layer:
1. Select the layer, and then select Properties.
2. Click the Symbology tab.
3. Set the stretch method to None.
To set the default stretch method for all images:
1. Select ArcMAP Options from the Customize menu.
2. Select the Raster tab and the Raster layer sub-tab.
3. Set the default stretch method to None.
