Publisher's Description:

Microsoft Photosynth is a technology from Microsoft Live Labs that will change forever the way you think about digital photos. This software takes a large collection of photos of a place or an object, analyzes them for similarities.

Then Automatically reconstruct a three-dimensional space from a collection of photos of a place or an object.

Whether sharing or reliving a vacation destination or exploring a distant museum or landmark, Photosynth transforms regular digital photos into a three-dimensional, 360-degree experience with a digital camera and your own creativity and inspiration.

How does it work?

Photosynth is a potent mixture of two independent breakthroughs: the ability to reconstruct the scene or object from a bunch of flat photographs, and the technology to bring that experience to virtually anyone over the Internet.

Using techniques from the field of computer vision, Photosynth examines images for similarities to each other and uses that information to estimate the shape of the subject and the vantage point each photo was taken from. With this information, we recreate the space and use it as a canvas to display and navigate through the photos. Photosynth was inspired by the breakthrough research on Photo Tourism from the University of Washington and Microsoft Research. This work pioneered the use of photogrammetry to power a cinematic and immersive experience

Providing that experience requires viewing a LOT of data though—much more than you generally get at any one time by surfing someone’s photo album on the web. That’s where our Seadragon™ technology comes in: delivering just the pixels you need, exactly when you need them. It allows you to browse through dozens of 5, 10, or 100(!) megapixel photos effortlessly, without fiddling with a bunch of thumbnails and waiting around for everything to load.

This first version of Photosynth has some limitations that you need to be aware of:

1. All synths are uploaded. They're big, so you need to use a broadband Internet connection.

2. All synths are public. Your photos will be visible to everyone on the Internet.

3. Like the viewing experience, the "synther" only runs on PCs (XP and Vista).

4. You'll need to Sign Up for a Photosynth account. It uses Windows Live ID.
