I use this app everyday

I love Snapseed! It’s my fave editing app for my phone! I only gave it 4 stars for the following reasons: While Snapseed already has a robust set of tools, I would love to see a colour editing option. Specifically HSL sliders and the ability to split tone. To get these functions I currently have to export to lightroom mobile. A smart masking tool would be great as well with the ability to edit inside and outside the mask. Colouring in with my finger takes way too much time when I want to mask effects onto certain parts of an image. Lastly, the perspective tool isn’t very smooth, see SKRWT for the best example of correcting lens distortion. Saying all of this, I still love the app and use it everyday! The following things I’ve mentioned would cut my edit time down by half and save space on my phone. Would really love to see them in one of the next updates! P.S. expansion of the double exposure function into a full blown compositing tool would be sweet, but I understand that’s pretty tough to build in. 🙏😊✨

My GOTO Editor

I have been a Snapseed user on iPad for many years and is my goto editor, even surpassing PC editors from Corel and Adobe for speed and convenience .... and results on the move. I have tried other editors on recommendation, but in comparison, Snapseed is way ahead, especially for on the move editing.
While other reviews may be (justifiably) critical of specific and more specialised controls, Snapseed does *almost* everything I could wish for to produce a quality result, in quick time, with the minimum of effort. Snapseed controls are logically grouped and you can flit between controls with a minimum of hand/finger movement.
Things I would like to see include :
A clone brush on a zoomed image, a selective sharpen/soften brush, the facility to ‘save’ and ‘edit’ a named control settings palette rather than just last edit, a more controllable brush ie 1-10 rather than +/-5 and +/-10 option.
I am writing this brief commendation for Snapseed because I’ve just done one for another (paid for) editor, but it (and others) would have to progress a long way to tear Snapseed away from my hands.

Half baked interface update

Its still good but, the previous version had these fluid in and out transitions when editing photos. The tools were clustered in several groups in 3 columns which made it easy to find what I needed. The new white drawer first clunks into place with a linear motion like the developer never heard of fluid motion curves. or the Material Design Guidelines. The small icons appear now in 4 columns and a large single cluster of editing options. No grouping anymore, this is much harder to use now. Those pre baked filters, upon which this update puts more focus on, are mostly useless, since you cannot adjust their strengths like you can with the proper editing tools in the middle tab... old version 5 stars, minus 1 for interface down grade.
