If you're looking for an easy way to keep track of your child's growth using handprints and footprints, then the recently released Handpressions app for iPad is the perfect fit for you. Handpressions lets you digitally capture, store, and share the handprints and footprints of your loved ones month after month and year after year. What's more, it lets you create keepsakes, artwork and more from your collection of tracked prints.
From the first day a child is born parents begin to capture handprints and footprints that will always hold a special place in their hearts. The tradition of capturing prints for mementos and artwork continue through a child’s youth, always keeping their powerful sentiment.If you can't see the video embedded above, please click here. To get started with your child's growth-tracking, you must first add a profile for him or her. Then, you can capture your child's hand or foot with your iPad's camera or load an existing image thereof from your photo library. Either way, Handpressions automatically makes the conversion into a digital handprint or footprint, which you can edit by erasing any purple mis-selected items or rotate so that the fingers and toes are pointed at the top. You can also adjust the amount of detail you'd like in your print by changing the blur and line levels. Finally, you can size up the print using a handy sliding ruler. Optionally, you can choose from a number of templates to customize works of art that incorporate your child's precious handprints and footprints in creative ways. From announcements that you can send to your friends to mementos that you can hang on your wall, these can be created and delivered to you (at prices ranging from $18.99 to $39.99). Compatible with iPad and iPad mini running iOS 6.1 or later, Handpressions is available now in the App Store for free. [gallery link="file" order="DESC"]
