Giveaway - Camera Lucida App for Cookies

Giveaway - Camera Lucida App for iPhone / iPad

If you decorate cookies,  you've probably heard about this app.  I first heard about it from Sarah of Klickitat Street.

It works just like a KopyKake, only no huge piece of equipment and no heavy price tag.

The Camera Lucida app allows you to see your cookie through your iPhone or iPad. When you look through the screen, you can see your cookie plus any image that you'd like - right on top of it.  You simply trace or pipe the design right onto the cookie!

Here's Sarah demonstrating the app.  It's amazing!

Check out Klickitat Street blog for a full tutorial.

Anita from Sweet Hope Cookies used the app along with a handheld projector.  You can watch that video here.

Camera Lucida isn't just for cookies!  In fact, it wasn't developed with cookie decorating in mind.  You could use the app with actual paper as your canvas instead of cookies.  Who would have thought?

See the Camera Lucida website for ideas on how to use the app and to watch demos.

Would you like the app for FREE?  

The author of the app, Peter, is allowing TEN lucky winners to be selected to receive the app for free.  All you have to do is leave a comment below, telling me how you would use the Camera Lucida app.

One entry per person.

The giveaway will end on December 10th at 12:00 am EST.

The winners will be contacted and given a code to use to receive the app through iTunes or the App Store at no cost.  The code expires January 2, 2015.

If you don't win the giveaway, the app is only $5.  Much less expensive than a KK!  Go ahead and buy it!

It's available for purchase here through iTunes or in the App Store on your iOS device.
