Microsoft Research Group Shot

January 18, 2006

Published by MS Research a few days ago, a new tool name Group Shot that helps you create a perfect group photo out a series of group photos. With Group Shot you can select your favorite parts in each shot of the series and Group Shot will automatically build a composite image..

I suppose this is a good tool for home consumers – Adobe Photoshop Elements to come with a similar tool in a next version ? – but could also be useful for professionals: with SLRs that support up to 3fps, it could be interesting to apply the idea behing Group Shot to merge the best parts of each image.
