Photo! 3D Screensaver

This is a fun tool I stumbled upon.  I have been thinking about how to create a virtual art gallery, so I did some research and came across this cool application.

I found it at it is a site where you can edit your photos online, however, it also provides some great ways to present your photos.

It offers free downloads to create Photo! 3D Album, 3D Screensaver and photo web album.  It creates a realistic 3D world which displays images. You move around the environment automatically and view the different images.

Create presentations online by creating a widget. Choose the template from slideshow, 3D album or a 3D gallery. You can upload your own images, add images from sites or flickr. The site creates the widget and provides you with an embed code.

The screensaver in particular, is a great way for students to display their images, use at the end of a school year, at a subject selection evening or parent/teacher event to showcase the school events. There are many environments to choose from.  It is also fun to use at home and display your family photos.

I love the 3D! And your ideas for displaying at a parent night are great. I am so trying to get people not to be stuck in the mindset that everything has to be printed. This will be very appealing. I can't wait to try this out. Thanks. :)

I liked this program!
It seems to be the only one of it's kind, BUT
The real fun is if the person in the picture could come out of the frame and out of it's background and step into the floor of th 3D world so you can walk past them as if they were real people standing there; and that's what I found!
The program that does this (and I think it's the only one in the world) is called: Realtime Landscaping by ideaspectrum.
You can even input the exact height of the person in meters!!! so each person is his/her own real world height!!!
