What is Snapseed?

07 Jun

Around a month ago I wrote an article about iPhoto on iPad. Since then I have been enjoying downloading pictures onto my iPad and doing all sorts of editing and fun special effects.

For the sake of completeness and to give readers a free option, I thought that it would be nice to review Snapseed.
Snapseed is a photo editing App that was acquired by Google at the end of 2012 and became free to download since then.
This picture editing App is very intuitive and easy to use. Enhancing a picture and sharing its perfected version is only a few taps away.

Downloading Snapseed

If you need a refresher on how to download Snapseed, follow How to download and install iPad Apps.

Get help when you need it

Snapseed includes an overlay help that can be accessed at any time. This means you can learn as you use the different features the app provides and if you forget any details you can get a reminder with just one tap.

Most of the time, enhancement selection is performed by swiping up and down, and enhancement adjustment is done by swiping left and right.

Touch and Compare

While editing a picture, you can tap on the compare button at anytime. This will let you see before and after enhancing your picture.
