was looking for a program to knit togeher some of the photos I recently
took in Hawaii - particularly photos of areas like Waimoku Falls on
Maui. The falls are over 400' tall and cover a wall area over 300' wide
- way too much for a single photo to encompass, especially if you want
to catch some of the little touches and details of the area like the
of my wife at the base of that falls on the left or the small flowers
growing along the rock face.
course you can do that through Photoshop, which I haven't figured out
how to do yet, but a friend of mine mentioned a new program he had run
across called Photosynth.
I gave it a shot this morning and in about 20 minutes put together a
decent shot of Waimoku Falls. The program takes all the photos you have
of an area including wide angles and detail and merges them into a
single series of shots overlapping, merging and sewing where possible -
all done automatically. Check it out : Waimoku Falls.
tap the slide show arrow for an auto-walk thru or step through
individual shots by following the prompts in the upper right corner.
Then hit back to get back here.
the show I have is not as comprehensive as I would like but that's
my fault. I only have about 20 shots of the falls for the program to
work with. If you watch the tutorial video, you'll see that the more
photos you have, the better the result. They give you step by step
instructions on how to take your series so that the show is everything
you hope for. This can also be used for interior house shots to do
virtual tours since the program allows you to view the show
automatically or step through each shot, go forward, back, zoom in,
done this once, I know from now on when I want to capture a terrific
panorama or detail of a large area, I'll be taking numerous photos so
Photosynth can do the job for me. It's actually pretty simple and does
a very nice job. Give it a try at Photosynth.net.
