Photosynth for Windows Phone updated with higher resolution support and an improved stitching engine

Photosynth for Windows Phone has just gotten bumped to version 1.8. The popular photography app allows users to capture 360 degree panoramas by seamlessly stitching together a series of captured images, which can then easily be shared to friends and family via various social networks.

Photosynth version 1.8 brings support for capturing higher resolution images that will result in clearer panoramas and a higher level of detail; this should be great for those with Windows Phones sporting PureView camera like the Lumia 930, 1020 and 1520. The new version also introduces an improved stitching engine that should result in faster image processing when blending panoramas, along with less visual artifacts.

Considering that the ‘new Photosynth’ that Microsoft introduced in late 2013 is still in its technical preview stages, it isn’t surprising to see that its new features have yet to make it into the public Photosynth app. Hopefully by the time version 2.0 comes around, some of the new features to create 3D captures will make the cut, in the meantime you can check out the embed example below.
