If you want to show off your newly-remodeled downstairs, newly decorated room or you want to remember the amazing luxury condo you went through. Here’re some Photosynth tips so you’ll get the best synth of an interior space:

  1. Start by standing in the center of the room and shooting a panorama—turn slightly and take pictures 360-degrees all around you. Make sure you have lots of overlap between pictures—50% works really well. Make sure you use a tripod and that your camera stays level throughout the panorama—otherwise it won’t synth very well. Start with your camera zoomed out as far as you can for the widest possible shots—then do it again with the camera zoomed in progressively closer , so for each position you’ve got a wide shot, medium shot and close-up.
  2. Next, stand in each of the room’s corners and shoot the rest of the room, again with lots of overlap between shots, first wide, then closer. Then stand in the center of each wall and do the same thing.
  3. Don’t forget the ‘rule of 3’: each part of your scene should appear in at least three different photos.
