Snapseed Gets A Radical Makeover

Monday, April 27th, 2015 by | Filed Under: Android, App Reviews, Free Downloads, iOS

I’ve told you how much I like Snapseed, a great, free photo editing app available for Android, iPhone and iPads. Well, the developers have given that app a radical makeover. Even the icon is different.  It actually is an entirely new app. I found out about the update when Snapseed disappeared from my phone home screen. I’m an avid cell phone photographer, so it’s one of my most-used apps.  I went looking for it in my apps and found a brand-new app with a completely different interface!

Here’s what the start screen looked like before.


Here’s what it looks like now.


You tap the little phone icon to select a photo from your tablet or phone.


Then you can select a photo from recent photos or tap the 3 line menu button in the upper-left corner.


From there you can pick other image files or choose a cloud account.


Once you select a photo, you’ll see this screen.


It’s much sparser than the edit screen in the previous version of Snapseed.

Choose the +  icon to begin editing.


You can choose Tools that allow you do do things like crop, adjust brightness and contrast and rotate.


Once you tap the tool you want to use, adjustments are made by dragging your finger or stylus up or down a menu.


Adjustments are made by dragging right or left. It takes some time to get the hang of the this touch menu.


Use the check icon to apply changes or the X to cancel.


Or you can pick from several filters. 


Save your finished image by choosing  Save at the top.


In part 2 of this tip, I’m going to take a look at the new features in this version of Snapseed.  Snapseed is available in the Google Play and Apple App store.
