All this time, the only thing I ever used for photo editing was Picassa. I had never heard of Snapseed, but since it is free, there is no harm trying it out.
Snapseed – Free App Of The Week
The iTunes Free App of the Week offers photographers and artists a like a little more creativity to photo editing than they were once limited to. While one of the biggest photo adjustment apps may have recently been purchased by Facebook, they fail to have realized that they may have missed the boat when it comes to truly customizing the look and feel of the pictures that you take with your iPhone. Snapseed is the new and easy to truly give your photos the touch that you want with adding and subtracting elements to your picture that bring out the best that you photo skills have to offer.
From textures, to colors, frames, and even the ability to change focus details and shifting the image, Snapseed is an all around utility, that borders on being able to be called the next Photoshop. Some of the most popular photo styling apps today simply offer a look that is overlaid onto the picture with no other options available. Sometimes, these additions to your photos are a little bit of “overkill”. Snapseed does the same thing as all of these apps, but with the added ability to change levels of the different elements that are applied to your picture.
If you enjoy the rough frame style edging around your photo, you can add it with Snapseed. Additionally, you can increase and
decrease the size and roughness of your edges to give it exactly the rough look that you’re looking for. If it’s a blur effect that you want, select the size of your focal point and let Snapseed add an eye-catching element that blurs everything around the focal point itself. When you want an old grunge look to your photo, you can make it as intense or simple as you want it to be. The options with Snapseed are literally endless, and each adjustment could give your photo a completely different vibe with each image you save.
Snapseed is the tool we have been waiting for since the largest overlay apps came to life on the iPhone. Add elements that enhance the overall look of the image, or simply use features such as brightness and contrast to give your photo the look that you were going for when you initially took the photo. Quit being limited to overused and now underappreciated touches that generic apps give your photos and truly bring out your own touch of creativity.
This is my first time hearing about Snapseed. I do hope it lives up to its promises and possibilities. I'm continually adjusting photos on my computer, and I'd love to find a simpler, quicker way to adjust my pics.
I am so excited about snapseed! I love to take pictures and I always seem to need to crop/fix them. This app looks super cool and I got it for free. How exciting is that! I can't wait to give it a try. I hope it's easy to use.
