The Louvre 360  by Virtual Sweden(?) has panoramic photos of the museum. Press 'SHIFT' to zoom in, 'CTRL' to zoom out. Panorama-o-Rama.

That's very nice.

Very nice indeed. I've seen some of those places and it makes me want to travel more.

This is very cool. Museums--the place--have always appealed to me at least as much as the stuff on the walls. Even the visitors are dressed well. I've only looked at the first one so far; hope there isn't some kid from the States with a Beavis shirt lurking in one of the galleries.

Thanks, Planetkyoto.

Is there any way to save a Quicktime 3D image as a static image, i.e, for a desktop photo? Or just make the desktop quicktime permanently?

If you right click (control-click) you should get an option to save it as a quicktime movie, which will then open as a QTVR movie in your QT stand-alone player. AFAIK, they don't work as backgrounds, unless you take a screen shot, of course. I have no idea how to take a screen shot in Windows.

These photos also remind and evoke (for me) me why France is so seductive. Truly great stuff.

It's ok, I guess, but the Xbox 360 is going to have Halo 3, which is going to rock.

By the way, you need to BUY quicktime pro to save these movies..my love of Apple ends before that....

You can always do a screen capture.

You can? On a mac? What's that?

Well, maybe you can't on a mac. It is very simple on a windows machine, but I don't know about a mac. Surely, there's a way to do it, I would think. I can't believe that macs with all their superiority over windows do not allow the user to make a screen capture.

Here ya go: screen capture on a mac

Does anyone have a favorite? I think the Wedding Feast one makes the best overall use of the photography+ the technology. Those skylight windows are like a Kaleidoscope.

thanks for trying, wsg, but that doesn't work for this type of media, at least not in OS 10.4

yes it does. don't know what you're doing, but CMD+SHIFT+3 (or 4 if you only want to capture part of the screen) works for me fine.

Silence, when I hit Applekey+Shift+3 or 4, the image just zooms.
