making fake polaroids

Have you seen the Rollip website yet?

You can make Polaroids with your own images. Just upload them and in a few magical moments…

presto!  You have fake Polaroids.

I just had to play with it for a while, especially after jealously looking through some amazing real Polaroids on Flickr. I remember many a Polaroid shot being taken throughout my childhood. Anxiously waiting for the image to appear~ fanning the picture to speed it up (which I’ve heard you shouldn’t do) Ahhh, the memories.  I’ve asked family members if there is still a camera hanging around in a box somewhere with an old  box of film. But, no. There is not.  So, this will have to do for now.

  1. I used this effect recently via to upgrade the photos of my craft items on Etsy i think it makes them stand out and having photographed them on white they are nice and clear now :)Yours look very authentic with the colours, Piknic have a 60s effect which changes the colours and rounds the edges of the picture too that’s good for some pictures. I could spend ages playing around on these sites. Have )a creative day :_

    If you want a Polaroid, I can get you one. My favorite thrift store always has them (I have, ahem…a couple) and they are never more than $2 or $3. Just send me an email and I’ll take a look.

    Thanks so much for this website!!! I too am craving a polaroid camera! The Fugi Instamix seems like a cute comparable solution, although the pics only come out in credit card sizes!!

    Very cool. Polaroids were so fun…the anticipation and the waving of the photo. Reminds me of being a kid.

    Now I am off to see what Rollip can do.

  6. Love these – thanks for the link to Rollip 🙂
