Microsoft Photosynth

What is Photosynth:

Photosynth03 Photosynth automatically stitches together your digital photographs to create a three-dimensional image.
It’s sort of like a still movie, perhaps. It’s just one object or location captured, but rather than being limited to capturing it in one photograph, you can take many photographs and capture the whole thing in detailed photos, and then they’re stitched together by Photosynth and you are then able to experience your photos in a very creative and fascinating way. You are able to move around, as if you were turning your head to see more of what’s around you, and zoom in as if you were moving closer towards something. It’s difficult to explain, so I would highly recommend you view some Synths created by others already. I have included some incredible Synths in this article below.

A wonderful thing about Photosynth is that you can download and install it for free. All you need is your Windows Live ID and you’re good to go.

How to use it:

What is your reason/motivation for blogging?

I have a number of very different blogs and each have different reasons for their existence.  My primary blog is my personal one, which is where I put up things that I find interesting and fun that I want to share with people.  Then I have the GirlyGeekdom blog which is a group one.  This is focused on all things girly and geeky.  The others are directly related to the Girl Geek Dinners and are the simplest and most efficient way to manage and distribute information to the Girl Geek networks.

Overall my reasons for blogging are to distribute information and knowledge, to share experience and to influence change.
