Poladroid

26 10 2008

A new application was recommended to me today called Poladroid. You feed it an image from your computer and it processes it to look like an old Polaroid photo. You even have to wait for it to develop! There’s a demo video here. I also have some before and after shots:

So, it’s fun to use (you can even shake the developing images to make them show up quicker) and produces Polaroid-like results. I’ve even noticed that it discolours the photos slightly, just like a real Polaroid! Also, when you have ten images on your desktop, if you try to make another one, a dialog box will pop up:

How realistic is that? There is some bad news though. Firstly, the instruction manual and some of the menus are in French. Second, it’s Mac only, so tough luck, Windows users! I’ve had fun using it and although it’s a tad pointless, I won’t be deleting it just yet!

It’s time for another first on Mr Cheese’s Random Ramblings: a poll!

La Premièr Cadeau

17 10 2008

What’s this, you say? The first present? But it’s my birthday tomorrow! It’s true; I received my received by first birthday present early today, along with £65 early birthday money as well! What was the present? It was Spore Creatures for Nintendo DS. I haven’t had a chance to play it yet, but it looks good!

So, what will I get tomorrow, on my actual birthday? Who knows (except the people who bought the presents and then proceeded to wrap them up)?
