Explore photographs in three dimensions

Photosynth is a powerful set of tools for capturing and viewing the world in 3-D. You can share your creations with your friends on Facebook, publish them to Bing, or embed them in your own blog or website. Photosynth offers two styles for creating immersive 3-D experiences: panoramas and photosynths. Photosynth was inspired by Photo Tourism, a research project by University of Washington and Microsoft Research.




About panoramas
Panoramas are camera shots from a single location with a single zoom level. They are great for giving a sense of what it feels like to be in one particular place, and they are simple to navigate: you can go left, go right, go up, go down, zoom in, or zoom out.

About photosynths
Photosynths are good for capturing different sides or details of an object. They are more complex to navigate than panoramas because you are moving from photo to photo.
