Official blog for the Windows Live Digital Memories
Here on the Windows Live Photo Gallery team we love seeing cool panoramic photos that our users create themselves using Photo Gallery. As you might already know, Photo Gallery includes an awesome panorama stitching feature built into the product. The technology behind the scenes that enables the feature came straight out of Microsoft Research (MSR).
Well, the MSR team that gave us the stitching engine is now helping with a very cool project. They recently hooked up with xRez and the staff at Yosemite National Park to work on a panoramic project dubbed the “Yosemite Extreme Panoramic Imaging Project”.
By “extreme” they really do mean it! Our friends in MSR wrote about the recent trip to Yosemite on their own blog. The final panoramic product should be ready sometime in late summer. Stay tuned to the project page!
While most of us don’t have the time or hardware to shoot 10 Gigapixel panoramas :) you can still create something beautiful with your own camera and Windows Live Photo Gallery in minutes. Here’s a quick screen cast to show you how:
Got a gorgeous panorama that you’ve created with Windows Live Photo Gallery? Drop a link to it in the comments of this post and share it with us!

We're back again with a new episode of ShutterSpeed, a relatively new online photography show for photo enthusiasts. In episode 2 Nic Fillingham (host) is joined by Bill Crow, Jeff Greene, and myself.
We talk about a handful of topics including Photosynth on CSI, Microsoft Pro Photo Tools with geo-tagging, and I give a hands-on demo of Windows Live Photo Gallery from importing your photos to doing some quick tagging and editing.
