As you probably have realised by now, I love love love Polaroids. I love the excitement of not knowing how the picture looks when you take it, I love that its never the same sort of colours and effects on the pictures, and I even love using a proper old school film camera.
What I’m not so keen on however is the expensive film, and the fact that its becoming harder and harder to find film. (It used to be so easy to find film in the high street stores, but now I’m having to resort to eBay, which I hate!)
So I was pretty pleased to find Poladroid, a simple little program which is for the Mac only at the moment, and most importantly, free. Drag and drop your pictures onto the little picture coming out of the Polaroid camera image (which is the actual program) and it will spit out a photo which will need a bit of time to develop. The pictures even lay on your desktop in a haphazard, oh-it-just-fell, kinda way.
Heres a few examples…
