Adam Kinney just blogged about a new app called PhotoSuru, a WPF sample application that lets you browse and share your photos. The app takes advantage of WPF features like Pixel Shaders, Adaptive Layout and Custom Themes. It’s designed to be more of a starter kit for developers who want to learn about WPF or build on top of what the app has to offer, but even on its own, it’s pretty cool.
PhotoSuru lets you display your photo albums as a filmstrip at the top of the screen with the larger photos displayed underneath. There are different views available – you can overlay descriptions or click more to see the photo and a longer rich text description beside the photo. You can also import subscriptions from a folder on your hard drive. You can even “drive” the app with a remote control!
