Turn Your Photo Into a Polaroid

May 10, 2012

Here’s a quick and easy way to turn your digital photographs into Polaroids.  I found this downloadable Polaroid template on Jon Dyer’s techie blog.  You can use Photoshop or Gimp* to layer your image on top of the frame and turn any photograph into a Polaroid.  The template conforms to the size of an actual Polaroid and will work with photos that are scaled to 314 pixels tall by 302 pixels wide. (*Jon includes instructions for editing in Gimp with the Polaroid frame post.)

Polaroid-style Place Cards

I’ve used the Polaroid frame to create Polaroid-style place cards for my dinner party this weekend.  My dinner party guests will find their seat by their photo rather than their name. I used photographs with interesting stories behind them, which the guests can share around the dinner table. It’s a fun ice breaker.
