Polaroid Madness is a free Chrome app that lets you add stunning Polaroid effects to your photos. It’s a nice free app that allows you to apply amazing Polaroid effects to your digital photos with just one mouse click! The interface of the app is quite attractive, and it displays thumbnail preview of all available Polaroid effects at the top. Plus it also provides “Help” on all options available within these effects to help novice users get a quick start with this free photo editor. Polaroid Madness is capable of creating a collage of Polaroid, hanging Polaroids, a stack of Polaroids, and Droste and Vintage Polaroid effects.
Polaroid Madness can be accessed using the link given at the end of this article. The app requires no account creation or prior registration; just upload the photo and create stunning Polaroids within seconds! Let’s see how to use Polaroid Madness.
Add Polaroid Effects to Photos with Polaroid Madness:
Polaroid Madness is quite easy to use. At the app’s homepage, you can see all the effect previews at the top. These are actually buttons to apply the respective effect on your photos. A sample photo is provided which lets you test the effects in normal view.
You can upload your own photos by clicking at the “Choose File” button, browsing photos from your system, and pressing “Upload” button. This will quickly upload your photo to Polaroid Madness and replace it with the sample image.
Now you can simply click on any Polaroid effect and explore the beautify touch they give to your photos. The effects are random and temporary, hence if you are not satisfied with the current one, you can always press the “Refresh” button to recreate the effect.
Each effect provides some options at the right that lets you change the photo opacity, count of image parts in collage, apply shadow to the photo, change it to grayscale, rotate it to some angle,etc. Plus, it also lets you change the background color of the photo and switch to a random color or choose desired one from the color palette. You can refer the “Help” tab if you want to know more about these options.
Apart from that, Polaroid Madness lists some tools to crop, flip, rotate, and save the effects settings. Once you are done, you can download the converted photo to your system just by right-clicking anywhere on the image and choosing “Save image as..” option. The photo will be saved in “JPEG” format, but with a watermark. These watermarks can be removed by entering a code that you need to purchase; the details of which you can get in the “Actual Size” tab. This tab also offers generating a large preview of the image (but again with watermarks).
Here are some of the effects I generated on my photos using Polaroid Madness.

The Final Verdict:
Polaroid Madness is a nice free Chrome app that offers beautiful Polaroid effects to be applied to your photos, but it doesn’t provide any direct way to download these images to your system. Moreover, the app leaves a watermark at the top right corner of every photo, which looks bit annoying. However, you can easily remove them by spending a few pennies. Check it out now and give it a try.
