Ratings and Reviews
The best photo editor on iOS
Since iOS 13 You need to delete the app and reinstall so you can open images
I really love snapseed. I was the creator of one of the first blogs on iPhone photography & have tested hundreds of photo apps but this is my go to app every time even after all this time. But the biggest features I wish for are
1) a quality noise reduction feature!!!!!!!!!!!
2) I'd like in the black and white section to have sliders to control all colour conversion. Eg magenta, yellow, nuetrals, black, white, cyan etc etc. that way I can make a black and white photo have the same pop as if it were in colour. Some times a yellow and blue can tonally look the same in black and white but in colour the yellow pops more. With selective adjustment I can make the yellow appear brighter & blue darker. The current selection of just a few preset colour filters doesn’t work well enough
Also a dark or black background editing mode. The brightness of the background is distracting when editing
5 stars if those 2 features were added
Update: Years later since I first reviewed & we still need noise reduction. I still have to go over to PS express or Lightroom for this feature
Great app but please support more cameras Raw files
This application is great. I have recently been testing Snapseed vs Lightroom CC and I believe Snapseed comes out on top because it has all the capabilities and functions that Lightroom currently lacks and can only be accessed in the desktop variant.
I only have one criticism, please increase your support for other cameras raw files. I have a Fujifilm x70 that I’d love to use with this program to edit raw files but unfortunately it is not currently supported. The Fuji x100t is currently supported and has the same sensor and processor as the x70...
Love this app!
The filters etc are not extensive, but I find that the ones that are there are ones that I keep coming back to more than other apps I own because they produce the exact look that I want. One thing I’d love to see added is the ability to alter each hue individually, as I usually end up going to other apps to get that. But I will say that people are looking at photos that I’ve taken with my iPad and edited in Snapseed and saying ‘wow’! Definitely money well spent on this app!
