Great but needs an update

Can’t open images except from camera roll, seems to be a bug. App locks up if you open from other devices or albums (the only fix is to delete the app and reinstall) ————— 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 the monochrome 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. The current selection of just a few preset colour filters doesn’t work well enough. 5 stars if those 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

Really great app

Aside from being free, I love the apps UI is touch optimised, I can swipe up and down to change between parameters within a tool, makes the interface a lot cleaner and easier to use and progressively learn, instead of bombarding me with a whole of tools.
I do 90% of my edits in Affinity, but occasionally it’s nice to have a handy tool to import a photo to the photo and tweak it on the fly. I’m not really one to use a whole lot of preset filters and never buy those in app purchases, so having an app with intuitive tooling is really nice.

One suggestion I will make is to have the photos extension so I can open a photo directly from the Photos edit menu and perform edits (in contrast, the import/export/save options are really the noticeably worst experience of the whole app)

Great App

I love Snapseed photo editing tool and use it constantly on both my iPhone and my iPad. It is not over complicated and is so easy to use. It can make almost any photo look great. This review would have certainly been a 5 star rating except that I have recently bought a new Apple Mac M1 and prior to purchasing the laptop I had read that Snapseed was available for Mac OS. I was so excited to be able to use Snapseed and be able to edit my photos on my Mac M1 laptop only to be bitterly disappointed that it is not available on Mac OS after all. Please tell me a Mac OS compatible version will be released soon. 🙏 No other editing app comes close to the usability of Snapseed, my favourite photo editing tool.
