Missed the Royal Wedding? Relive it with Microsoft’s Photosynth

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge and Prince William, Duke of Cambridge married on Friday in Westminster Abbey.

With an estimated audience of two billion across the world it’s still likely that some missed the big event. Microsoft’s Photosynth technology has stepped in to save the day. Wales Online & Wales on Sunday Editor Alison Gow painstakingly stitched together numerous photos inside Westminster Abbey to create an impressive Photosynth. If you’re fed up with the Royal Wedding coverage then forgive us, otherwise read on for instructions.

Click in the box below the image and you can increase the player to fill the screen by clicking the expand button inside the picture viewer (the small white square within the larger square, on the right). Once there, you can navigate from side to side using the centre arrows (or by clicking on each picture) or zoom right in and out with the + and – buttons. The images were stitched together using the Photosynth website. Depending on your computer, you may need to download Microsoft Silverlight (a free application) to view the panoramic. Where necessary, the download will begin when you click on the image.

    Photosynth can do a lot better… i have seen it in action.. give it more pics and you can see teh 3D model of the place… this showcase did not justify the tru potential of photosynth.
