There are a big number of Photosynth fans all around the globe, and now there’s some good news for all Microsoft-based Windows Phone 8 users.
Per reports, a brand new version of Photosynth has now been revealed for everyone using a Windows Phone 8-based smartphone. The app was previously lost after users made the step up from Windows Phone 7 to the next WP refresh.
Although there are a number of other tools to create panoramas on Windows Phone 8, users will be actually pleased to know that the highly popular Photosynth app is now back for them in their smartphones running on Windows Phone 8.
The free Photosynth app will combine traditional panoramas with full all-around spheres, with the app integrating with the Windows Phone 8 camera and taking it a step forward from the previous WP7 release by adding some bugfixes, improving stability, and getting some new camera controls.
The app will also let users tweak exposure and color balance settings, alongside some new sharing tools that will direct the user’s friends to the Photosynth site where they can see what the user created for them.
“Sometimes a single photo - even a wide angle photo - doesn't do a place justice. Whether it's the view off a cliff, or inside an incredible cathedral, we've all been to places that cry out for a full 360 panorama. Photosynth is the only Windows Phone app that can stitch a full sphere. That's 360 degrees horizontally and vertically,” the official page states.
“The Photosynth app for Windows Phone feels like magic. Start it up, move the camera around, and watch your panorama fill in. Make a 360 revolution and watch it join up. Capture the floor and ceiling too. When you're done the shots are automatically stitched together, and the results are beautiful and immersive.”
Once the stitching is done, users can publish his or her panorama to the Photosynth site and onwards to Bing, with the option of also sharing it via Facebook and Twitter.
Below are the new features for Windows Phone 8:
Camera lens integration – Quickly capture and view panoramas by launching Photosynth directly from the built-in camera app.
View shared panoramas – View panoramas shared with you via email, Facebook, or Twitter directly on your mobile device.
More camera controls – Adjust for various lighting conditions by using new exposure and white balance locking options.
General improvements – Enjoy an even more delightful app experience with various bug and stability fixes.
