I created the new header using 2 of my favorite things – the program involved is Poladroid (kind of a digital Polaroid creator) and the images came from Stock.Xchng (a free stock photo site). Mostly I use stock photos for wallpaper and screensavers on my computer, but it has come in handy for all sorts of things, including my new header. It takes a little bit to set up an account with them (not sure why really) but its worth it, some amazing photographers submit beautiful things there!
And since Polaroid is no longer making this type of film, at least I can have the next best thing. It pops up with a camera to which you can drop a photo. It snaps the photo then you have to wait. Just like a real Polaroid. Shake if you want, but that doesn’t seem to hurry it, just like the actual film. And it will “ding” to indicate when it will be done. At that point it can be saved or deleted.
So please support this wicked program!
ETA: Forgot to mention that the pictures come out at 1392 by 1692 pixels.
