Hi, I am just wondering if this software is ok to use for a website I'm creating? Is it licenced? Do I need to pay to use it? Or is it free for people to do what they want with it?
Thankyou.
It's free to use, and free to embed the results on your Web site. If you are part of a big compamy that plans to create hundreds of synths and attract millions of "synth views", then stay tuned for the announcement of a commercial license to cover that kind of activity, but if you're an individual or a small business, it's free.

The only problem is that you'll have to explain to the visitors of your website that they must instal a program and how to use it to view synths.
Photosynth is incredibly easy to use to create synths (more or less working) but incredibly unfriendly to use (viewing) for people who are not concerned :-(((
Good luck!

The silverlight viewer will make it much more friendly for visitors on your site.

I'm not sure yet , but I believe I had to instal a software on my computer before using the Silverlight-viewer.

rkrishnasanka,

Please read this page ( http://photosynth.net/commercial.aspx ) from the 'About' link in the main site navigation.
Years ago I purchased a little program called PixMaker from PixAround.  The software let you stitch overlaping photos together in a similar fashion and then publish them on your webserver.  The company has since gone out of business but I still have the software running to create virtual tours of properties I have listed.

I am now thinking Photosynth will replace it.  I can't wait to get out and try some ideas out I have with Photosynth and real-estate.  This is way cool!
