TheRESource.TV. The important thing I saw yesterday about Photosynth was this video below suggesting that Agents Use QR Code with Photosynth togther, to have the entire home shot and be the first Agent in your Town to do so. Click Below To View Video.
NOTE: I have emailed the Agent Below, Bill Garrison, and asked of Gary and Ryan to provide us the link to that actual Agent’s Photosynth so we can view for ourselves what’s possible and learn from it. I think that once we see what Bill has been able to accomplish, this will be a huge help to us users. If they respond, I will post the link.
Marilyn, at this time and based on my limited use, I can see shooting Front and Rear and doing a couple of larger rooms, but not the entire home. I asked Bryan at REBliss.com about this and he said,
“I have created several photosynth photos. You would have to make one photosynth photo for each room of the house. I guess the video is a little misleading, they have all of the interactive photos on the right side of the computer screen and maybe the way they edited the video made it look like one photo was touring the entire house, when they were actual clicking on each photo for each room of the house.
I agree with you, a photo of a few interior rooms and maybe a front and rear photo as well.
I tried to make a photosynth photo of a small kitchen the other day, the program had a much harder time with a small area (the kitchen cabinets were a few feet from me on each side of me) vs make a photosynth photo of a large living room. I tried 3 times and couldn’t get a good photosynth photo of the kitchen.”
Marilyn, I certainly think Photosynth has a place in real estate marketing. It’s clearly up to us to find on our own the uses and limitations. I don’t think it will do a whole home, but exteriors and 2-3 rooms would be really nice. And, WordPress makes this easier with being able to add Photosynth code where needed based on Bryan and Joe’s examples from their post.
Hope this helps!
PLEASE, if you employ Photosynth, please send me links to how you’re using it. “
