Polaroid Vs. Poladroid: See The Differences For Yourself

As I've mentioned before, I love Polaroid. There is another digital option for artists that do not own a Polaroid, or don't have any film, etc. That option is Poladroid, a great free program which digitally creates the look of Polaroid. However, there are several differences between true, legitimate Polaroids and the digitally simulated Poladroid. The gallery above present both Polaroids and Poladroids back to back in order to better understand the differences between them.

From my flickr stream: A side by side comparison of an original Polaroid with a Poladroid version of the same frame. Poladroid automatically "Holga-izes" the images, adding a heavier vignette to the out edges of the frame.

The bottom line? As the song once said, "Ain't nothin' like the real thing baby" - it's Polaroid or nothing if you really want that legit Polaroid feel.

Take a look here for more information.
