OK, here’s the verdict: it’s difficult to come up with a convincing digital version of a Polaroid image transfer, and it takes a LONG time to do it. If you are really interested in these image transfers, it would probably be best to just buy the machine! But I am so addicted to my Photoshop. I just have to try to see everything that it can do.
Compare the two shots I shared yesterday:
The frame on the second one still needs a lot more work. It is way too solid and dark. The upper one is better, but probably still needs a few ink smears along the edges to make it really good. Anyway, here’s what you’ve gotta do, and you can decide for yourself if it’s worth going to all this effort.
