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.

Be nice if I could actually sign in

I love using this app to crop and save my polaroids to my phone but really I could probably do that without this app. So I figured I'll try the gallery and upload a few of my pics, but I can't sign in with my online information. Why can't I sign in? So what good is this app if you can't post the pictures you've taken to the gallery because it doesn't recognize your login. Impossible your film is so expensive seems like you could afford to fix this issue. I love buying the film, don't us as customer deserve an app that works right?

Like most; Login

I see the great potential in this app and as someone who is trying to get into photography, and who loves Polaroid, I'd like to do ordering film right from an easy source. I'd love to be able to log in and use the app to its fullest potential. 'Tis sad that this doesn't work.

Scanner for 300?

So far enjoying the scanner and seems to work great! However, (and I know the pic300 film isn't an Impossible product, but would love if the scanner could recognize that size, too.
