What are moments?

Families can create moments about their child in the same way that educators can create stories. The difference is that we've designed moments specifically for parents to use from home, using the Storypark for Families iOS app or Android app.

Moments consist of photos or videos, and a caption. Parents can add filters, text and artwork to their photographs and then choose who they share them with.

Instead of only having text responses (that some children can't yet read), family members can also respond with stickers or record video responses.

Adding and editing moments

To start making a moment just tap on the Create + button at the bottom of your screen. Select any photos or videos you want to add to your child’s timeline and tap the next button at the top right of your screen.

Editing photos:

Tap the 'edit' button at the top right of any photo you want to view in the editor. Videos are unable to be edited at this stage.

Filters

To add a filter to your photo:

  1. Tap the ‘filter’ icon on the ‘Edit Moment’ screen to be taken to filter selection.

  2. Tap each of the filter preview icons (at the bottom of your screen) to preview each effect.

  3. Tap the preview a second time to adjust the strength of the filter, pressing the tick icon when you’re happy with the setting.

  4. Tap to ‘Apply’ button in the top right hand corner to apply your effect.
