We’re happy to announce that the new Photosynth technical preview launched this morning. Fly through the Himalayas, immerse yourself within a beautiful forest, or admire a famous landmark from all sides in the many examples of what’s possible with the new Photosynth.

Photosynth allows you to create amazing reconstructions (synths) with only a few simple steps. The way to capture your own synths has evolved from the original Photosynth, so you’ll want to watch our tutorial video and read our new Expert Shooting Guide before you give it a try.
