I love the look of polaroid photos. They hold such wonderful memories from my childhood. That instant gratification was such a novelty - and how cool was it to watch it process before your eyes?
However, Polaroid have stopped producing their film and so slowly the cameras and those funky photos will be on the way out. Sad isn't it?
Luckily, you can simulate a small part of the experience - ie just the look of the product - with rollip. You just upload your photo and select a range of "polaroid' effects for it and voila.
Just a hint though: keep the image small when you upload it. I tried to upload a slightly bigger file (900kb) and it was very slow and then didn't work at all...
