Obtain a Polaroid camera.
Obtain Polaroid instant film, about $30 for 20 sheets. The price of film has gone up about 50% since February when Polaroid announced it would cease production.
Make picture. Let photo develop. Ignore Andre 3000 and don’t shake the photo.
Admire fully developed photo. And weep when you realize Polaroid photos will be gone soon unless we save Polaroid.
Peruse Alex’s (aka Citizen of the World Inc) blog and learn about Poladroid, an application which converts your photos to Polaroids. Oohing and aahing optional.
Download and install Poladroid.
Drag and drop a full resolution photo (best if over 1260×1260 pixels) into Poladroid application.
Wait while photo develops.
Admire Poladroid photos. Share on your blog and/or Flickr. Repeat.
Thanks: to DB for letting me photograph his SX-70 Polaroid camera and for letting me use the photos of Polaroid film and me with shades. Also, to Alex for initially blogging about my new favorite toy, Poladroid.

Gotta love the technology “darg and drop” you digital pictures into a Polaroid frame. Next I will be downloading my mp3’s into a casette tape simulator or better yet an 8-track tape digital simulator.
Im addicted now! Long time reader…
You and Alex are such scenesters. But then the photos look pretty cool.
LOL (ja,ja,ja,ja) to Franks comment=D
I must admit that I did “Ooohh’d & Aaaahh’d” at the notion that this new internet process exists. I think it’ very funny. I’m sure my family members that are involved with photography, will get a kick out of this and we’ll probably tryi it!
