DIY Instagram Polaroids : Print Instagram Photos at Home!

By Dana Fox

There are plenty of places online that allow you to print your Instagram photos, but what about doing it yourself? I wanted to print photos that had that authentic Polaroid feel, so I came up with a nice little template that you can use to create your own Instagram Polaroids easily… with no Photoshop skills required. These print out the same size as an actual Polaroid photo and have the texture of a vintage photo.


Since not everybody has Photoshop or a photo editing program to make these, I’m going to tell you how to do this using Pixlr, a free online photo editor.

First, you’ll need the Polaroid template. Click here to grab that and save it to your computer.

Head on over to Pixlr.com/editor now and follow these steps:

  • Choose Open Image from Computer and open the saved template
  • Go to http://followgram.me/yourusername (using your own username) to choose your photos
  • Right-click on the large photo you want to use, and click Copy Image URL/Location.
  • In Pixlr, under the top menu choose Layer > Open Image URL as Layer
  • Paste the image URL in the box (CTRL + V or right click, paste). Your image will be added as a new layer to the document.
  • In the Layers panel on the left hand side, grab the new layer and drag it below Layer 0 (your polaroid template). Position it in place.
  • Do this for all 4 images!

You can then go to File > Print or save the finished file to your computer for later. I recommend printing on a photo paper to get that authentic Polaroid feel!

I offer these freebies to my readers as a small token of my appreciation so please play nice 😉 All artwork is © copyright wonder forest, 2014.

I hope you enjoyed this little DIY and create lots of awesome photos!
