Polaroid Dimensions


I was putting together a page in a magazine I'm designing that had a number of polaroid images 'thrown' about the page and I needed to know the dimensions because I wanted to create the art for it in InDesign. 

I googled it first and was looking and looking for the exact dimensions and then looked on my groovicle wall and saw a polaroid of my brother Patrick from '06. Duh, look right next to you dummy! 

Anyway, I figured somebody else could use this info if they didn't have a ruler and a polaroid staring them in the face everyday.

Thanks a lot! I'm printing up magnets that look like a polaroid, and I was looking for the dimension to set up the art. Thanks for this, it's fantastic!
