    Can anyone tell me the true dimensions of a polaroid photo....the standard print that comes out of the polaroid camera is what I'm after.

    I'd like to know the size of the paper,and then the dimensions of the actual photo printed on it too please.

    Thanks :)

    I loooove Polaroids.  I did a mini last year and "approximated" the sizez, but now with the right dimensions, it will look more "real".  Here's my mini:

    That mini is great Sylvie! Does anyone know how to print out a picture that's been made into a polaroid from Rollip? I haven't figured out how to print it out right!

    Oh, thank you Waleska!!! I have always wondered about this, only doing an approximate size when I made Polaroid-pictures!

    I pasted my Rollip pictures onto a 4x6 canvas and then got them printed regularly. I then trimmed them down to the right size. It worked great but I had made them a little big - next time I will paste them the actual dimensions that Waleska gave us onto the canvas. Good luck.

    Thanks Waleska Smile


    Valerie that is/as my problem....I kept trying to resize the image yet it printed out too large for 6x4 each time. In the end I printed out a picture using the "double" setting on my picture mate and it came out okay.

    Thanks Shanley.....I will try this Smile
