Poladroid is a wonderful app that makes any of your pictures look like they were taken with the legendary Polaroid SX-70 camera. It’s free, and you can download to Macs and PCs from this address: http://www.poladroid.net/.
You just drag your image over the little Polaroid camera icon and then it makes the sort of whining, growling sound that SX-70s used to make when the camera ejected the print. You have to wait a few seconds for the picture to “develop,” just like you did with a Polaroid. When you’re done, you have a vignetted image with unpredictable colors . . . heavenly!
The top image is called “Looking Out,” and the original was a black and white picture taken with an Olympus EPL-1 and a Lens Baby Composer.
The next one is called “Maine Root,” and it was made with the same equipment.
The bottom image was made with one of my compacts set to black and white and is called “Pleasure Machine.”
