From the photosynth blog (the actual site is overwhelmed with hits at time of writing but you can read the blog here or view this video to see what it is all about and how photography is going 3D
There is two URL’s for photosynth http://photosynth.net and http://photosynth.com
There is a photography tutorial here as well as a how to video here
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.
good luck at getting through:)
Ricky Montalvo from Blog001 has an interesting tale on how his picture taken on a Canon G9 gets published in the Montreal’s ‘The Observer’
It appears that a Montreal newspaper “The Observers” ran with an image I took with my new Canon G9 which they found on a Flickr group. The photo was part of a group within Flickr, where users can submit pictures depicting their “feelings” on Flickr (which is a part of Yahoo!) merging with Microsoft. So, I decided to submit the image you see above. I got an email via Flickr mail from the people at the Observer asking for permission, which I gave and they followed the Creative Commons attributes I set.
