Special Thanks to ~mousiestmousy for the wonderful sample images. :heart:


DISCLAIMER: I spent a lot of time creating this action. It helps you to save time, and maybe you can even learn something new. Nevertheless, to install and use Photoshop actions you have to have at least basic Photoshop skills. I won't help you with that. There are plenty of Tutorials on dA and the www.
My actions often have the approach to mimic a certain kind of photographic process. I enjoy to study prints and to reveal its essence, while thinking of a way to empathize this essence with Photoshop. I'm aware that my actions don't create adequate substitutes for an original piece. I just mention this, because there were some purists and hardliners in the past, that shook their heads or even felt offended. Consider this simply a nerdy hobby of mine.
A weak point of Photoshop actions is, that it's not convenient to load files (like textures) during playback, if you want to use the actions on different machines. That's because the paths saved in the action are absolute. To make the outcome perfect, you should adjust the layers and values to your needs and place additional textures manually.
DeviantART has changed the submission rules (again). From now on .ATN files have to be zipped to be approved. Sorry for the inconvenience!

Thanks so much! In my photography class we're doing an actions project (basically using actions to edit photos) and this is exactly what I was looking for!! <3

Thanks for sharing this AWESOME action! I have one question (hope it's not a dumb one). I don't see where to access the "stickers and tape" that can be added to the top of the polaroid effect once it's complete. The action runs seamlessly, but no tape at the top. Do I add this separately or is there something else I need to download? Thanks.

Thanks for the compliment. Honestly, I don't know what you are talking about. Have you seen it somewhere with tape on the top? Nevertheless this never was a feature included in the PolaGen 3. :shrug:

Wow! Many thanks indeed. I'm an absolute novice at Photoshop and this is simplicity itself to follow. I've tried to follow tutorials on line for hours and get all dazed and confused ( apologies to Led Zep  ) . This download is brilliant, and if I can use it, anyone can.
Thank you for taking all the grief and ache out of making a polaroid! CLASS!

Hi , I love these actions.. but I am only looking to add a Polaroid frame to an existing image. How could I do that ?
Reply
:iconrawimage:
rawimage Featured By Owner Sep 15, 2014  Hobbyist Photographer
Search for a stock image of a real Polaroid frame, or run the action to get a layered Photoshop file, place your photo manually into it and delete/disable any layers you don't need. Basic Photoshop skills are required.

versifier Featured By Owner Sep 15, 2014
I figured it out within the action itself, like you said I disabled the layers I didn't need then re-sized the original image.

Thank you!!

I would suggest adding just a plain polaroid version for any future updates :)

Cheers mate!

My main goal was to mimic the look and feel of different Instant films, not so much a simple frame.

What's "impossible film"?

Instant film produced by a company called impossible.

Ah, okay. I thought maybe it was a look that was impossible to do with real Poloroids or something

Hi there,

Am I blind?  Where exactly is the download button?  What does it say?  :)  I would love to give this a try.

Thank you.

It depends on your screen resolution, but mostly it's in the menu on the right or below the image. It says "Download" in friendly bold letters. :)
