Group Shot is a photo combining program developed by Microsoft Research. Its purpose is to solve the problem of individuals in group photographs that might be doing undesirable things such as looking elsewhere, closing their eyes, not smiling, etc. The principle of Group Shot is that multiple group photographs will be taken in each session. Multiple images from a session are loaded into the application, and then the user selects the best parts from all of the different photos and merges them into one. The software is in development.
It was announced at Bill Gates' keynote at the 2007 Consumer Electronics Show. The software will be available as part of Windows Ultimate Extras, but can already be downloaded for Windows XP users.
