Software Review - Polardroid

The reason why programs such as Polardroid and Instagram have become so popular amoung digital photographers is due to the unexpected and unpredictible aethetic changes that occure in the polaroid-ing process. In essence, the creative decissions such as composition, color, and ornimant are decided for the user with relatively low investment.

I started using Polardroid (Mac Only) to get knew life from old, ugly digtal images by emoposing randomized film-esque dementions: square format crop, color tempurature shift, human artifacts, and soft focus. These changes don't always yeld interesting results but they demonostrate how digital editing, if done correctly, can add interest to photographs.
