Snapseed App Review

Snapseed is a photo editing application. It’s free. This is devastating. It’s more powerful than Instagram, and if you have space on your smartphone or tablet, even if you are a professional photographer, you should download Snapseed right now.

Snapseed is a Google acquisition to improve Google’s photography capabilities. Now it’s a Google app with powerful photo editing filters that you can use on your smartphone or tablet. Some see Snapseed as a response to Instagram, but it’s generally part of Google’s ongoing effort to improve its photo editing and sharing software. Nik Software – the company that originally developed Snapseed – specializes in high-dynamic range (HDR) filters for photo filters and plug-in products. Google is constantly adding tools to the app to improve its capabilities.

Where to get Snapseed

Snapseed is a free app available for Android and iOS mobile devices. Take pictures on your mobile device, use Snapseed’s filters and share them on social media sites.

Snapseed is an artist tool with advanced features and is recommended for serious photographers, but its easy-to-use controls are ideal for anyone who wants to play with their images. For goodness sake, this is the utility you use when it takes you a while to create an enhanced image.

What you can do with Snapseed

Choose a photo from your photo library or take a new photo. To make initial adjustments to the image’s resolution using the Appearance tab, select a thumbnail at the bottom of the screen.

Most editing work is done in the Tools section of the application. Healing brushes, vignettes and glam glow filters can be found there. There are also creative photo frames, structures and grunge and lighting effects. You can rotate and carve images, adjust oblique lines with the perspective filter and adjust the white balance of your images. Use the curve filter to accurately control the luminosity levels. Each time you tap a tool you open options that you can try on your image – click on each thumbnail to see how it looks to apply an effect to your image.

Other tools include head pose, portrait, lens blur, double exposure and text filters.

When you are happy with the changes you have made to your photo, tap Export. From the export screen, you can share the edited image, save it separately from the personal photo, or copy it with permanent changes.

The whole process is simple and self-explanatory. Even if it is addictive. You can wander from tool to tool knowing that nothing is permanent until it is made permanent.
