Hello Photosynth, Love from Australia.

I live only 5 minutes away from the most awesome vista in the world: the Sydney Harbour.

Now you can experience the Harbour on a not-so-sunny day (that is, this morning) thanks to Microsoft Photosynth (note: Mac users: we’re working on it. In the current term, you will need to Bootcamp to see Photosynths. The VMWare Fusion guys say that their Beta 2 of Fusion 2.0 works OK with Photosynth)

Photosynth is available for public creation of synths. Grabs some photos of an object or place, and synth them.

For fun, I also added a synth of “Rambo”, The Big Merino from Goulburn, NSW.

The on10.net Shutterspeed episode has an interview with the Photosynth team.

Flikr, Windows Live Photo Gallery is goodness

Sydney Harbour

As Larry mentions in his post, the latest beta of Windows Live Photo Gallery is out.

After installing it, the first feature I tried out is the new "upload to Flickr". I am a Flickr Pro user: the ability to see and comment on my friend’s photos is like attending slide-show evenings from the comfort of your own computer.

The internal buzz in the leadup to announce even got Jeff Sandquist hyped! And Long Zheng, an excellent photographer also loves it.

Windows Vista added support for tagging photos as another mechanism for organising your digital memories. Windows Live Photo Gallery reflects these tags when upload into Flickr. Now as a Flickr user, this was a wow! moment.

Watch and listen to my (first) screencast.

Thanks to http://twitter.com/cathye for organising us twitter-erz to actually get off our keypads/keyboards and have a meatspace meetup. Subscribe to http://twitter.com/stub for more info.

So, http://twitter.com/jjprojects http://twitter.com/funkycoda and myself now have the responsibility to organise the next meetup. 3 blokes doing it is dangerous.

Also, thanks to our sponsors for sponsoring.
