Polaroid-o-nizer: Trick out your photos, scrapbook-style

Polaroid-o-nizer is kind of a one-trick pony, but it’s a neat trick. You feed it the URL of a photo or graphic anywhere on the web and it spits out a reasonable facimile of a Polaroid photo. You can add your own caption, customize the background color, and change the angle of rotation.

If you’re a tinkerer, you can download the PHP source code for Polaroid-o-nizer, as well as grab a bookmarklet and a plugin for WordPress. If I have any complaint about Polaroid-o-nizer, it’s that it spits out a JPEG where I would rather have a lossless PNG with with a nice alpha shadow. Also, the engine behind Polaroid-o-nizer is the GD graphics library, which doesn’t always do as good a job with scaling and rotating as, say, Imagick, sometimes resulting in a blurry picture. But then again, maybe I’m taking this too seriously.”
