<ul><li><p>Kirk Bishop</p></li><li><p>What is Photosynth?Photosynth is a software application that analyzes digital photographs to build a three-dimensional models.</p></li><li><p>How does it work?Step 1Software 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.</p></li><li><p>Step 2The next step is to create the 3D model, which is done with a Photosynth viewer.The viewer is free to downloadThe viewer is stored on the users computer, but the photos are stored with on a Microsoft server.</p></li><li><p>FeaturesZoom in and out of photosManeuver through a scene to see photos at different anglesSend photos </p></li><li><p>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.</p></li><li><p>More Limitations?Takes practice to get the right shotsOnly runs on XP and VistaLastly, to get a really good synth, a lot of pictures need to be taken.</p></li><li><p>ApplicationsCreative way for consumers to store, and organize photos.It is also planned to be a back end programming tool for Virtual Earths.</p></li></ul>
