Every listing on eBay or Craigslist has one thing in common – if the seller is serious they’ll include pictures. Sometimes the pictures will be pretty low res cameraphone, other times they will be hi-res dSLR photos taken with proper lighting.
No matter how good the photo though, or the slideshow viewer they’re presented in they’re just like the images everyone is used to seeing.
Now Photosynth has a Silverlight powered viewer there’s no reason not to take advantage of the capabilities to link to a synth or embed it in your listing.
As you can see from the synth above it’s not just a case of throwing a few photos into the tool and hoping for the best – that gets you a pretty choppy result – but even so it’s possible to navigate around the image and even have a look inside. The site has a video that explains the simple steps to create a good synth.
Do you know any examples of people using Photosynth to spice up their listings – and did it help?
