User friendly photo-editing app for your phone or tablet
By Jeff Lopez in Articles and Tips on Oct 5, 2017
Snapseed is a user friendly photo-editing application currently developed by Google. It has a very comprehensive layout, which at first handles very differently to other popular photo editing apps, but in time you will probably begin to like it a lot. Although it's not up to the magical prowesses of desktop imaging editors, like Adobe Lightroom and CaptureOne, it certainly holds up it own in terms of versatility and power to these, and I would say it is the best mobile photography editor in Google Play. This article does not pretend to be a full tutorial, it is mostly focused on a beginner's approach to it, yet there will be some examples that explore some really good "pro" wise features that will be useful as we learn to use it. Before anything, I must mention that this review is based on the Snapseed Android version, (Samsung Galaxy Note 4, Android 6) and the examples will be JPG. Recently Snapseed added basic RAW support (as of version 2.17), but RAW file management is very poor. It needs some very complicated workarounds which I prefer not to discuss inside the article.
