36 Polaroid-Inspired Filters

We’ve completely rebuilt the filters to better capture the Polaroid effect. While there is nothing like the original picture – our team has studied thousands of actual Polaroid prints, and our all-new filters have softer edges, color adjustments, and some even have emulsion streaks that reflect the nuances of Polaroid film. There are a lot of filter apps out there, but none capture the unique beauty and unpredictability of Polaroidfilm like the Polamatic app now can.

36 Authentic Polaroid Classic Border formats

Our iconic Polaroid Classic Border formats are made from high resolution scans of actual Polaroid pictures. Whether you want a crisp white border, or crave the look of a Polaroid picture that is a bit more aged – we added a few additional authentic Polaroid Classic Border formats to give you a wider variety of choices. You’ll also see a handful of Polaroid Classic Border formats with colorful borders.

New Text Editing Features and Fonts

Our new text editing features provide unique customization and tools – and give you the freedom to add multiple layers of text – anywhere on your photo. People love to handwrite on a Polaroid picture, and our array of handwritten fonts look and feel like the real thing.

    What a weird world of technology in which we find ourselves living. Better and better camera phones so we can use apps to make our photos look old and film-based.
