Not yet, but that's the plan. For more information, please read this.

I'm hoping that we'll get this feature for a holiday present at the end of 2010, but there haven't been any promises to that effect.

yeah i wrote to microsoft about a similair suggestion

"Spheres and Paths"

Many 360 Panoramas and walking paths in between those to the desitination of the 360 Panoramas... it will happen (in time).

I've tried Photosynth, Its a great tool. But instead of installing the photosynth client it should install a small plugin like silverlight/flash player for IE. And not the 11mb client software.

It will be better if it is added to Iive messenger or live essential tools.

Combining to photosynth is very needed and must be useful.

Hi, bcdalai,

The 11MB download to install Photosynth is largely the part that actually puts the synth together. It happens on your computer, not the Photosynth servers, and as far as I know that kind of computing is best done in native code (currently C++), rather than in a virtualized Silverlight or Flash app.

I certainly think that Silverlight should be wrapped into the Photosynth install process and I also think that your suggestion that Photosynth be included in Windows Live Essentials is a good one, but that is only going to make something in WL Essentials (probably Photo Gallery) 11MB larger. If you have both Photosynth and WL Photo Gallery installed, you can already highlight a selection of photos in Photo Gallery and choose to create a synth directly from the 'Extras' menu in Photo Gallery Wave 3, or from the 'Create' tab in Photo Gallery Wave 4's ribbon.

Also bear in mind that some people who don't like Microsoft might be willing to try Photosynth, but won't be willing to install anything with the Windows Live brand in order to try it out, so I think it's helpful to keep at least the option to only install Photosynth + Silverlight.

Lastly, for many people, the graphical power that Silverlight has at the moment just isn't enough to match the original Direct3D Photosynth viewer, which is also included in the 11MB download.
