The team at Microsoft is offering a new product called Photosynth which anyone can use provided they own a PC with Windows XP or Vista. Plus the computer needs a video card with at least 32MB dedicated, 1 GB of RAM and a fast broadband connection. So if your computer meets these requirements, you might want to give Photosynth a try. So what is Photosynth?

What is Photosynth?

Imagine being able to share the places and things you love using the cinematic quality of a movie, the control of a video game, and the mind-blowing detail of the real world. With nothing more than a bunch of photos, Photosynth creates an amazing new experience.

A quiet creek Whether it’s a quiet creek in the woods of Pennsylvania, or the grandeur of the interior of St Paul’s cathedral, Photosynth puts you there like nothing else can.

Venice It can capture the sweeping scale of a mile of the Grand Canal in Venice, and focus in on the exquisite rot at the waterline of a beautifully decaying palazzo doorway.

Wild Room Want to share your amazing new room with your friends—after all what justice do a bunch of thumbnails do for a room that took you a month to decorate? Only a synth can capture every detail.

If you go to the Photosynth site, there are videos of what Photosynth has to offer. One note everyone should be aware of. If you use Photosynth, your works will not be private and the world can view your efforts. Also in order to download the software you need a Live ID as well.

If you have used Photosynth let us know what your opinion is.
