Polaroid-o-nizer and Rasterbator

Castro Lights One Up

I came across the Polaroid-o-nizer the other day. This nifty little bit of PHP scripting will automagically convert any old regular photo into a hip looking Polaroid style photo, all without any messing around in photoshop, no plug-ins, no filters, no fuss, no muss - just pure unadulterated Polaroid-o-nizer goodness.

Try it free today! Polaroid-o-nizer. *note - this link now appears to be fixed! See update below.

And on a related note another interesting free online photo manipulation utility called the Rasterbator, now don't get your self twisted yet. While the name may raise eyebrows when shouted out in the middle of a crowded supermarket, what it really is according to the website is:

The Rasterbator is a web service which creates huge, rasterized images from any picture. The rasterized images can be printed and assembled into extremely cool looking posters up to 20 meters in size.

And for those with a slow connection, you can download a stand alone version to, ahem, Rasterbate in the privacy of your own home.

*** Update ****

My thanks to Patrick P for sending me an update to the Polaroid-o-nizer link, as it has been broken for quite some time.
For those who fancy the polaroid look here are three alternatives:


and different name, same type of service


Rock on you photo manipulators.
