What is at the back of my mind for some time is that we need to get out of the Photosynth box to unleash the true power of Photosynth. That Photosynth has to become part of a seamless user experience for (moving) pictures blended with social platform(s).
Consequently, Windows (Live) Photo Gallery and OneDrive are part of the conversation. The ever important property of (moving) pictures is when and where. The when is the Date Taken, which I have always been missing in Photosynth. For the where, Bing Maps is part of the conversation.
Maps and Photosynth are within the Bing Brand and organizational part of Microsoft. If all the parts needed for the seamless ux are scattered over Microsoft, then the chance to catch up and take the lead is not that great. Therefore, I feel it would be great if Bing, as a consumer brand, could take total responsibility for a comprehensive, seamless ux for (moving) pictures / images/ imaging.
