Kirk Bishop What is Photosynth? Photosynth is a software application that analyzes digital photographs to build a three-dimensional models.

How does it work? Step 1 Software analyzes multiple photographs taken of the same area. Each photograph is processed using an interest point detection.

An algorithm detects similarities between points and, essentially, connects the dots. Step 2 The next step is to create the 3D model, which is done with a Photosynth viewer. The viewer is free to download

The viewer is stored on the users computer, but the photos are stored with on a Microsoft server. Features Zoom in and out of photos

Maneuver through a scene to see photos at different angles Send photos Limitations? The maximum amount of space Microsoft provides is 20GB.

Which equates to approximately 60 synths of 150-200 photos each. Also, you cant add photos, they all need to be uploaded at once for a project, Microsoft is working on this complaint though.

More Limitations? Takes practice to get the right shots Only runs on XP and Vista Lastly, to get a really good synth, a lot of pictures need to be taken.

Applications Creative way for consumers to store, and organize photos. It is also planned to be a back end programming tool for Virtual Earths.
