Shake it Like a [fake] Polaroid Picture

with 156 comments

Feeling a little bored today, so I downloaded ShakeItPhoto, an iPhone app that processes your images to look like Polaroids. Pretty cool. So I dug though my Iphone’s camera roll looking for old photos of Suki and converted them to [fake] prints:

Team Suki wishes you a great weekend!

  7. Ohhh, Suki chan in her puppy days!! ホンマにかわいい!!
    But I bet you love her more now:))

    I installed a lot of photo app in my iPhone, and enjoyed them a lot, but soon got tired of them and I only use Hipstamatic and a few other apps these days. Haha, I get bored so easily;D
    Now I’m crazy about my revived LC-A (I have no idea how it recovered!) but your pics with the X100 are nice and lovely! I love all the pics in the entries below:)


    July 10, 2011 at 5:08 pm

  8. oh man. squeal.
    i don’t think i’d ever get any work done if i had a suki. 😛


    July 10, 2011 at 8:53 pm

  9. loving the effect here; downloading app now! great shots of suki as always.


    July 11, 2011 at 8:23 am

  10. Thanks for the comments everyone! Many of these shots were taken with the iPhone camera, and some with other cameras as well, all processed by the Shake It app. =)


    July 11, 2011 at 12:31 pm

  11. BEST PICS EVARR!! sorry for the caps, these pics of suki are just too awesome 😀

  12. What a fun technique — and great pix.

    So does the app really require that you shake the phone to “develop” it? Or blow on it? That would be too funny…

  14. Suki 😉 sooo cute! 😉

    July 14, 2011 at 7:46 am

  19. the effect is interesting, i like this kind of stilizations. acctually, i tried the same today (lomo effect):
    and your dog is… i just wish to sunggle, snuggle, snugge!

  31. I love the photos of your shiba! I had two (one passed away). I’ll have to try this with my photos. Adorable pup.


    July 14, 2011 at 8:23 am

  32. Love the pictures and BTW love the song too. I assume thats the ” shake it like a Polaroid picture” reference:)


    July 14, 2011 at 8:29 am

  33. Adorable! I love Shiba Inu’s; for whatever reason they’re one of two small dog breeds I can stand. I also find them freakishly adorable. I think it’s the pointy ears. I definitely have a weakness for the pointy ears.


    July 14, 2011 at 8:40 am

  34. I have a shiba, too – yous is absolutely gorgeous! Fun dogs to have – and super intellegent!


    July 14, 2011 at 8:41 am

  35. Ok, I’m fighting the urge to stay calm, but failing miserably – This dog is one of the CUTEST THINGS I have ever seen!!!!!!!! And the photo app is amazing, the pics look great 🙂

    Not All Who Wonder Are Lost

    July 14, 2011 at 8:59 am

  36. Suki is so beautiful!


    July 14, 2011 at 9:03 am

  37. They are sooo amazing! The photos are lovely!


    July 14, 2011 at 9:06 am

  38. Those pictures of Suki are adorable!


    July 14, 2011 at 9:09 am

  39. Awww Suki is so fluffy & cute 😀


    July 14, 2011 at 9:13 am

  40. She’s so cute !! That app seems great.

  41. I want one, how cute!

    Yannique Benitez

    July 14, 2011 at 9:14 am

  42. What a precious pup. Love how they look with the Polaroid effect!


    July 14, 2011 at 9:15 am

  43. These pictures are way cute 🙂 Forget becoming a writer my aim in life is now to get a puppy as cute as Suki!


    July 14, 2011 at 9:17 am

  44. We’ve done such fakes in Photoshop for clients who ordered custom-designed greeting cards and they look cool when printed, but I don’t see why there should be a mobile phone app for it.


    July 14, 2011 at 9:25 am

  45. She’s beautiful, so photogenic! I have a Siberian Husky, but I’ve always loved Shibas, too.


    July 14, 2011 at 9:26 am

  46. I love all your posts, but especially the ones involving Suki of course! Brightens my day!


    July 14, 2011 at 9:39 am

  47. Why so cute. I love the photos and her expressions in them. Very memorable.


    July 14, 2011 at 9:51 am

  48. I just have one thing to say… Awwwwwwww!


    July 14, 2011 at 9:58 am

  49. As someone who also owns a shiba named Suki, all I have to say is that these are amazing. Well deserving of its place on the wordpress homepage.

    Oh, and the Polaroid effect is pretty sweet too.


    July 14, 2011 at 10:02 am

  50. what an adorable little pup!


    July 14, 2011 at 10:08 am

  51. Awww, he is just so cute and fluffy! I love the Polaroid effect too, that is so neat. Wish I could try it out myself too, but I don’t have a smartphone phone and don’t know how to use apps at all.


    July 14, 2011 at 10:09 am

  52. These are really very cool, and I love the third picture of Suki looking up at something while standing on the walkway. Cool app, wish I had the Iphone to try it out on.

    July 14, 2011 at 10:17 am

  54. What a beautiful dog! Great pics. Have you tried the Retrocam app? I’m a little obsessed with it, so much so that most of my photos look like they were taken in the 70s


    July 14, 2011 at 10:27 am

  55. Way cool. Thanks for sharing.

    Have a Great Day!

  59. so adorable! what kind of pup is suki?


    July 14, 2011 at 10:47 am

  60. You have the cutest dog! How awesome would it be to have an actual polaroid? This app is a nice substitute though. 🙂



    July 14, 2011 at 10:49 am

  61. Suki is a gorgeous dog! I never get tired of looking at my Shiba (although I do get somewhat taxed throwing his ball…over…and over…and over). 🙂


    July 14, 2011 at 11:00 am

  62. What a cutie your little Shiba is! I couldn’t help but notice it on WP’s Freshly Pressed. I’m a huge fan of Japanese breeds and I’ve got Suki’s larger cousins: An Akita and the more rare Shikoku. People always ask if the Shikoku is a very tall Shiba mixed with coyote or red wolf.

    Give Suki lots of hugs. Dogs are always worth spoiling.

  63. I love your shiba!! Looks just like my Kitsune! So beautiful, and the photo app is cool. I have instragram, which lets you do cool things to photos too, but I think I might download this one too. Thanks for sharing!

  65. Just working on my first wordpress site, when low and behold there is Suki on the Features SItes. I have a mixed pup, who is likely a Shiba Inu in a Norwegian Elkhound coat. She is a beauty and she gets to come to work with me everyday. When searching Shiba’s on the internet, I often run into Suki images! She is a beauty, thanks for sharing!

Congrats again and keep posting your photos, we love them!
