Snapseed is powerfull photo editing app which can be perfect your photos in a snap. This app brings to your mobile device the power and control of professional photo editing software, with the tap of a finger you can retouch, adjust perspective, re-edit, and more. You can also use Snapseed for PC, for that you have to install an android emulator on your windows or mac operating system. Snapseed app has features named Tools an Filters. Today i review it by editing my own photo with some screenshots.
* First i discuss about Tools, there are totel 9 tools available as shown in screenshot:
Tune image – use to auto adjust for instant fixes, use Ambience to create depth and vibrancy that uniquely adapts to colors and fine tune brightness, saturation, contrast, highlights and more. You can simply select desired tool by swiping your finger UP or DOWN on screen and change there values by swiping your finger LEFT or RIGHT on screen, I really LOVES this feature.
Details – enhance details with traditional sharpening or the unique structure contro.
Crop – crop images to standard aspect ratios or free crop.
Rotate – easily rotate 90°, straighten or free rotate how you like.
Transform – adjust perspective across vertical and horizontal axes, then fill in empty areas after rotation. I uses vertical perspective in editing my photo here.
Brush – selectively apply effects to regions of an image.
Selective adjust – make precise selections and enhancements to specific areas of your photo.
Spot repair – remove dust and dirt from the image without leaving a trace. This is a great tool.
Vignette – adjust brightness around the subject of an image, includes a control to freely position the effect.
* Now i discuss about Filters, there are totel 12 filters available as shown in screenshot:
Lens Blur – draw attention to the subject of your photo by blurring and adjusting the brightness of the surrounding background.
Glamour Glow – add a glow to the image that is particularly useful for glamour and fashion photography.
Tonal Contrast – bring out fine contrasts across shadows and highlights, with precise exposure control.
HDR Scape – bring a stunning look to your images by creating the effect of multiple exposures.
Drama – add style with an effect specifically tailored to your photo, ranging from subtle textures to wildly artistic effects.
Grunge – an edgy look with strong styles and texture overlays.
Grainy film – get modern film looks with a realistic grain engine.
Vintage – make any photo look like a vintage color film photo from the 50’s, 60’s or 70’s.
Retrolux – make your photos look truly retro with light leaks, scratches, film styles, and more.
Noir – modern Black-and-White film looks with a realistic grain engine and the all-new “wash” effect.
Black & White – get that classic Black and White look with this darkroom-inspired filter.
Frames – add stylized borders to photos for the perfect finishing touch.
Final words– Snapseed is a great app for basic but excellent photo editing. It has small size and can not uses much RAM and Battery. Photo quality is not compromised after editing even you get a best quality photo output from it. There are a small icon on right-top corner which is when tapped during editing then you can see your original image and also after editing you can simply tap your edited photo and see original image and easily compare both original and edited photo, this is also a great feature.
