What’s New

Version 3.1.7

The Impossible Gallery has been an amazing community hub for sharing Polaroid instant photography between artists, enthusiasts and everyone in between for 5 years. We are truly humbled by the level of engagement, dedication and talent. This is why we’re particularly sad to have to let you know that as of May 25th, 2018, it will have to be taken offline.
The important thing, though, is that if you’re a registered Gallery user, you will still be able to download all of your images for the next 5 months (until October 31st, 2018) to be exact). In the next few days, you’ll get a personalized download link. From there, you can download all of your Gallery contributions. If you don’t get the link, don’t worry: just send an email over to our support team at, and they’ll make sure you get one.

We also updated our privacy policy and the supported film types in this release.

Needs improvement

Terrible user interface design in many places. Merchant handling also terrible. No indication of what cards are accepted in the shop. Rest of the app is good though.

Overall Excellent

Functionality generally very good indeed. Scanner and sharing works very well. I have trouble logging out of the current version; it just crashes the app. Also, no option for Image/Spectra film in online gallery at the moment. Otherwise great!

STC007 ,

Great, but

Great app now it works again with the latest update. But wish there was a way to view photos that you have liked previously.
