    Absolutely not. Fermentation is:

      1. The anaerobic conversion of sugar to carbon dioxide and alcohol by yeast.
      2. Any of a group of chemical reactions induced by living or nonliving ferments that split complex organic compounds into relatively simple substances.

    according to

    And photosynthesis is “The process in green plants and certain other organisms by which carbohydrates are synthesized from carbon dioxide and water using light as an energy source. Most forms of photosynthesis release oxygen as a byproduct,” according to

    So these are very different processes.  One makes beer and yogurt, the other makes plants and oxygen.
