Just recently I stumbled across Poladroid on Flickr and then again on another blogger’s page. I downloaded the program and followed simple instructions resulting in the image below.


Our family had a Polaroid camera when we were young. It was one of those big ones that made a lot of noise when the photo popped out. The anticipation kept us staring at the picture waiting for the black color to develop into the image we hoped for. It was especially exciting when the photo was of a person or people.

    yes…my polaroid memories are a little different from yours and I never saw a polaroid make as creamy a background as yours….

    Hah! You kids….

    When I was young, the family Polaroid camera required that you manually pull the exposed shot out of the camera — which broke the packet of developing chemicals — and then, after a long wait, you peeled away the paper and saw the photo. Then you had to coat it with an evil smelling fixative on a sponge roller.

    Yeah, I know. I was born just a little too late to learn photography from Matthew Brady! 😉

    This photo is probably not a good example of the use of the polaroid and I gave it no thought when I randomly chose a photo from a folder on my hard drive to use for the Poladroid.
