At Pro Photo summit, Microsoft demoed a new technology called “DeepPhoto”, that uses Virtual Earth imagery and geometric models to enhance photos and provide an immerse experience based on them. Note: DeepPhoto is not yet available to users.
For example, if you take a great photo but its a bit hazy, you can create a filter to remove the haze based on Virtual Earth’s own imagery. In addition, you can put the photo within the Virtual Earth model, and it will extrapolate the actual image onto the surrounding terrain. While not earth-shattering, enabling these kinds of cool scenarios is great and something we could perhaps imagine Photo Gallery having in the future.
