You know PicLens? If not I highly recommend taking a look at that marvelous picture search tool.
Especially interesting is the 3D view of the pictures - you can easily navigate through a whole bunch of pictures by using your mouse.
I thought it would be nice to integrate such a picture view in your own Flex application, so I played around a bit with the 3D album tutorial from Bartek Drozdz and after a couple of days finished a nice little component that could be easily embedded in your own applications.
Update: You want to participate in the development of the component? There’s a Google code page for this 3D album component available now.
