Until very recently the answer would have been, "No." You could only use Microsoft Research's Image Composite Editor (or ICE as it is commonly called) to stitch panoramas for photosynth.net. (The Photosynth app is still the only program which creates photosynths, instead of panoramas.)

Now, the answer is, "If you can open the output of other panorama software in Photoshop, there is a new Photoshop plugin which will allow you to upload panoramas (not photosynths) to http://photosynth.net

For more information, please read:
