    Ugh...A creative crutch

    A plug-in to mimic instant film. Reminds me of those junky Polaroid type 55 edge plugin for photoshop.

    They look nice to me, a lot nicer than standard digital output color scheme

    You really don't need a plugin for that; just be inept with the curves control and you're there. Oh wait, this is an analog forum.

    Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.

    I think it looks nice. I don't like the sheer lack of authenticity or originality it encourages. I just don't like the fakery.

    They need to have to recreate that Polaroid smell when the run the filter on your computer.

    I agree that you don't have to buy the "filters". I get "looks without the label" that I like easily in Adobe Lightroom. (verboten).
    Heck of a lot easier to DIY digitally rather than messing with tea, coffee, wine, Dektol, and the rest in the darkroom to narrow in on an effect.

    Does it have a REAL Kodachrome look? Since you can't get that... I would like a plugin that ONLY provides RETIRED films, that say I could be authentic with digital but not a sell out

    There's a random quality of analog that digital doesn't have. Each Polaroid print is different because of processing temperature, how the photographer pulls the film the batch of film etc. The music of chance is missing in digital photography. These image processing filters creates imperfections perfectly every time!

    Why 'fauxtographers' can't find an aesthetic for their medium rather than imitating media they consider inconvenient, inferior and outmoded is beyond me. You don't see watercolourists trying to make their paintings look like charcoal sketches, do you?

    Anyway, shouldn't this thread be in the Lounge?
    testing...
