Poladroid

saint martin I recently found a very cool application that turns photos into polaroids called Poladroid. Having had a polaroid camera and buying film for said camera it’s nice to have a *free* way of having polaroids without spending a fortune on film. Not to mention that the film is being phased out, so once it is gone you’ll be spending a lot of money for it on eBay. The photos in this entry were either from my DSLR or Holga originally that were turned into polaroids, pretty cool huh?

My only complaint with the application is that it doesn’t seem to read .cr2 (RAW) photos, that or my computer has a heart attack when it tries to. It has to be the application, because my Powerbook hasn’t let me down yet. Sorry Windows users, but there’s not a version for you just yet. This should be even more reason for you to make the switch to a real computer. JUST KIDDING! ( Not really! :) ) Here are some other photos that I’ve used with the Poladroid application:

I’ve already started thinking about possible traveling in 2009, yes, it’s a little early, but I always like to have things to look forward to. I’m pretty sure my Mom and I will be visiting my brother Roy in Seattle at some point. I really, really would love to take a cross-country road trip somewhere. Seattle would probably be the perfect trip, however, I don’t see myself enjoying that with my Mom. A road trip like that would be more enjoyable with someone around my age. I’m not really sure what brought this on, other than the fact it would be a great photo opportunity. I really hope this happens, but it’s going to be hard finding someone I could spend that much time with and the potential for high gas prices again. I’ve been enjoying the low gas prices in Kentucky, I think the cheapest I’ve seen has been $1.83. Unfortunately, gas will be back up to $4/gallon before we know it. What is the cheapest you’ve seen gas in your area?

    Well, just wait until I take *my* real computer and come up with a good PS method to achieve the same ;)

    And as far as gas prices go, I have the feeling we’ll be in the ~$2 range for a little while. Let’s continue to enjoy the silver lining, shall we?

    That’s pretty cool! I’ll have to try that out…as soon as I get my butt out to take some photos. I’ve been slacking lately. Thanks for the link tip!

    This is really cool. Although I’ve never had a Polaroid camera I was disappointed to read that the film(?) for them was going the way of the dodo.
