I like Polaroid cameras and photos taken with Polaroid camera. But I don’t have one yet in my life. I always have been wondering of making Polaroid effect photos using Photoshop before. And of course, I did some of my photos to make Polaroid look with Photoshop lately. But as you know, not everyone familiar with Photoshop tools and it is not really easy to do. So I tried to look for an online tool to convert Polaroid effect from digital photos. I found a service called Rolllip. Rollip allows you upload your photos and convert it into Polaroid photos within few clicks. All you need to do is to choose the effect, upload your photo and caption it. Then it will give you download link, so you can download the photo or share it on your social network of choice or by e-mail.

If you’re using NIKON SLR camera, Opanda IEXIF is ready for you. Opanda IEXIF is a free EXIF reader program that can read all the information from a photo taken by Nikon SLR cameras. To read EXIF data, click Open menu and select the photo you just taken now.
