Photosynth app debuts on Windows Phone 8
Photosynth, the hit 3-D panorama app, is finally making a debut on Windows Phone 8. The app can stitch a full sphere of photos, that’s 360 degrees horizontally and vertically. The Windows Phone 8 version of the app is already on the Store and you can get it here.
Photosynth is a software application from Microsoft Live Labs and the University of Washington that analyzes digital photographs and generates a three-dimensional model of the photos and a point cloud of a photographed object. Users can upload their captures to the online Photosynth.net web service, which can then be accessed by the general public to view landmarks, public spaces and objects from all sides. You can share it as an interactive panoramic experience on Facebook and Twitter using the free service. Photosynth application is already available on Apple’s App Store.
According to Microsoft’s blog, the Windows Phone 8 release contains several handy new features including:
- Lens integration – Quickly capture and view panoramas by launching Photosynth directly from the camera.
- Ability to view shared panoramas—New sharing capabilities let other Windows Phone 8 users view your panoramas on their phone, and as always you can show off your panoramas by email, Facebook and Twitter.
- More camera controls – Adjust for various lighting conditions by using new exposure and white balance locking options.
