We’re pleased to announce the first full release of Photosynth, available now at photosynth.com. Photosynth takes a collection of regular photographs and reconstructs the scene or object in a 3-D environment. For those of you who have seen the videos or tried our tech preview, you could experience synths that we made in the lab and get a feel for what Photosynth is and how it works. But now, for the first time ever you can create synths from your own pictures and share them with your friends. Explore great synths from others or create a few of your own.
Don’t know where to start? Check out these great synths available today:
While there are plenty of interesting synths to check out already, the best ones will come from you. If you need help creating a killer synth, check out our photography guide for some tips. Or just watch our short how to synth video which gives you a quick overview of the best way to take pictures that will make a good synth.
Because Photosynth is so new, you will probably run into an occasional bug or hiccup. Whether you have a brilliant idea or find a bug, please let us know. We’ll do our best to address them.
And be sure to keep watching this space, where we’ll share what we’ve learned about making great synths, talk with some members of the Photosynth team, provide synthing suggestions for advanced users and point you to some of the cooler synths that people are building.
Former New York Jets Quarterback Joe Namath once said “When you have fun, you can do amazing things.” We sure hope you have as much fun using Photosynth as we’ve had building it.
