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. 🙏😊✨

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.

One of the very best ....

I've used Snapseed since it was a promising desktop (OSX) app. Using it now on my iPad Pro, after deciding to not have a mobile phone - and I have to admit that Google are if nothing else (and god only knows how much 'else' they are doing!) doing us proud with this continuing evolution of the app.
There have been regular updates over the past year or so that have been proper, helpful and insightful; this is resulting in firmly staking its place as one of my top five first routes I take in further development of my images.
With each new update it gets better & better. The new double exposure is one of the best implementations of this feature I've seen.
I am very grateful for the continued support given to this app; it's as important to me as Glitché, and that is saying something.
Like I said, for me one of the best.
