What is it? In simple terms you it just take a bunch of pictures and the Photosynth program links them together. For example, if you were to stand in the middle of your living room with a camera and take a bunch of pictures as you turned around Photosynth would map them together and create one experience.

I do not do the program justice. You really need to try it!

Drag at least three pictures to the photo area, give it a name and click on Synth. I just took some quick pictures with my Blackberry. The quality is not good but at least you can see how it works.

Photosynth will run and even tell you how much of your picture set is Synthy. The sample from my Blackberry is 57%. I took the pictures quick and the resolution is not good enough for Photosynth to work as well as it should. My previous photo loads were all 100%.

I messed around with it at the beginning of this year and thought it was great! I plan on adding more of my photos over the holidays. It is a great way to share perspective.

You can see some of the samples I threw together at:
