From snapshot to art: Polaroid app magic

The best polaroid app

Polaroid pictures are bursting with nostalgic charm. Their imperfections makes them particularly emotional and atmospheric. Blurred, shaky or false exposed images often make the best Polaroid photos.

The best filter app for the Polaroid effect that I know is Polamatic (iOS – € 0.99 | Android – € 0.76) @polamatic 

Why I love the Polamatic App

The app is really easy to use and as you can see in the screenshots has a clean interface:

  • 10 Polaroid film types are available (type 600 is still my favorite)
  • Film types have their own very realistic filter (all in all unbelievable 120) and different frames (no Polaroid photo therefore must look alike)
  • Image editing tools available (exposure, brightness, contrast, saturation, gamma, hue, temperature, tint, shadows to highlights and sharpness)
  • Captions Post with more than 50 fonts and other customization options

The app stores your photos in a separate gallery.  You can edit your creations any time again and place multiple images in the film roll.
