Smile Photo Software Creates 3-D World
In the digital age, organizing a photo collection has gone from bad to worse. The saying used to be that a picture is worth a thousand words. Now the question arises: what are a thousand pictures worth?
In a word, mainly a headache.

"Anyone who has a digital camera has the problem that they have more photos than they can possibly navigate," says Steve Seitz, associate professor of computer science & engineering. "And it's always a problem to find the photo that you're looking for."

Now experimental software developed by UW and Microsoft computer scientists, called Photo Tourism, turns the surfeit of images into a benefit. Hundreds of photos of a single scene can be mapped into a 3-D virtual world. The technology has potential not just for organizing photo collections, but for capturing scenes and, perhaps someday, creating a visual map of all the photos on the Internet.




For more information and a trial version of Photo Tourism, go to http://phototour.cs.washington.edu/. Information on Microsoft's Photosynth software and a tech preview of the product are available at http://labs.live.com/photosynth/.

I think 'Memories on T V' does the same job, is it? Anything special in the new one.
