What are polaroid photos?
Polaroids are photos taken on a Polaroid camera that instantly produce a Polaroid photo with the well-known frame around it. Polaroid film is available with white borders, or with different colors or fun patterns.
The first Polaroid camera was released in 1948 and was called the Polaroid 95. The term Polaroid refers to the company, the cameras, and the photos. The Fujifilm Instax camera, first released in 1998, prints similar photos so they are often called polaroids as well.
In order to get original polaroid photos, you'll need a Polaroid camera or Instax camera. These cameras with the added cost of photo paper can get pretty expensive. However, you can print polaroid-style photos – you can print them online using any photos from your phone or computer.
