DIY Polaroids

Already mourning the death of Polaroid instant film? You can make your own vintage-looking shots with Poladroid, a free software program.

After installation, all you have to do is drag-and-drop your photos and wait for the mini-Polaroid to pop out. (The pictures show up as a muddy brown for a minute or two before the picture comes through—cute feature!) The final products show up in your Pictures folder as JPGs.

Right now, the software’s only available for Macs, but a Windows version is coming soon. You can see a bunch of other people’s Poladroids on Flickr.

Here’s one I did, with the original picture:

And the Poladroid version:
