Comments and Ratings for Snapseed
Live Photos - gone (2.14)
1/1/2017 5:10:00 PM
2/5 By Andrew Higham
Appreciate some of the new changes, but really needs a warning before editing a Live picture that the "live" part of the picture will be lost if edited. Ability to lock out live images (treat them like video) would be fine too.
Thank You for A Great Editing App (2.14)

I love this app! It has given me the perfect tool I need to create great images on the fly or when I can be using my iPad - which means not at a desk! Love it. The tutorials are very helpful, well done. Thank you!
The best!!! but...paste? (2.14)

What happened to paste function??? If you have a lot of photos that are similar it can be a chore to find the one you want to edit.
My pictures are gone. (2.14)

Why is it that now when you save your edited photo, it gets sent directly to the snapseed album and the original is deleted? It occurred to me just recently after cleaning out my snapseed album to create space, that my original pictures were gone. Since I had just taken these pictures that day and was away from home, they also didn't get saved onto my computer. Gone. Forever. Without warning. Unbelievably disappointing!
THE BEST EDITING APP (2.14)

This app has to beat all editing apps out there. Even Vsco Cam. This is very professional yet easy to use. My pictures turn out amazing each time!! I love the white balance, selection, brush, lens blur, and design the most!

Hello, can you please make it able to use colors in brush function. It'd be AWESOME :)
Great app but changes always bring problems (2.14)

After the last update it's nearly impossible to grab the corners for cropping. It's always either moving the entire crop square or cropping the entire side. Your finger has to be a needle to grab the actual corner. 7Plus.

Snapseed is a powerful app, but they have seriously damaged the work flow in this update. One must make more taps just to see the current edits. Edits aren't some option you tuck away in a menu. They're the main event.
The developers of this last update clearly have not used their own program. Please change it back.

When will this app finally have a Noise Reduction tool to control the parameters of luminance and chrominance noise? This is such a basic function that should be integrated in the DETAILS TAB along with the existing sharpening and structure tools. Freaking when?????????????
Not Working (2.14)
12/21/2016 10:22:00 AM
3/5 By Rocksons_Threads
I love this app. Until today. For some reason, the app isn't saving all of the edits. Specifically the healing tool. I've gone back and tried to edit my photo more than 11 times in a million different ways and will not save. SUPER FRUSTRATING! 😭
Simply the best (2.14)

Look no further, here is your photo processing app. Hands down, you'll need nothing else to finish your cameras photos.
Price is incredible for this power!
Great App! (2.14)

I have used this app to edit photos and have loved it so much I also bought the desktop (macOS) version. 8.0/7.0
Edited versions disappeared from photo album after deleting the photos in SnapSeed album (2.14)
12/18/2016 3:52:00 PM
5/5 By Classof65
I've used SnapSeed for couple years and love it! Have recommended it to many others. Just discovered something today of concern. I thought when you saved an edited photo and said "replace" in the photo album, that my photo album would have the edited version, not the original unedited photo. Today, I was cleaning out photos from my iPhone, to free up space. Since I edit almost every photo, the SnapSeed album gets filled quickly. I periodically delete everything in this album, under the assumption that my photo album kept the edited saved version. I did this today, and it appears that by now deleting the duplicate photons in the SnapSeed album, that it deleted the saved edited versions! Now I have all the unedited photos back in my main photo album! Please explain how that happened? It makes NO sense to have to keep duplicates. Was this a recent change? This never happened before!
It's great. (2.14)

Photos come out awesome and very simple to use.
Would you consider... (2.14)
12/16/2016 4:02:00 PM
5/5 By NMI IPhone User
I absolutely love this app!! Editing my photos have never been so easy! They come out looking bright, clean & crisp. I like that the quality is not diminished when I save an edited version of my original photos.
I'm still learning how to work the app. The capabilities are awesome though!
I just wanted to ask if the developers would consider "thinning" the app without compromising the quality and great service you already provide, so as to save space on my phone?
Excellent Photo Editing App (2.14)

As a professional photographer I have tried numerous photo editing apps. Snapseed is by far my favorite one. Mostly I use it on an iPad but I also have it on my iPhone as well. The new update with the Face adjustments is really good. I really do like the app.
Please bring back front page histogram (2.14)
12/16/2016 10:09:00 AM
5/5 By JonEdanger
Have been (and still am!) a huge fan of Snapseed ever since it came out. Just updated to 2.14 and thought I'd make a wishlist: (1) Bring back front page histogram. I used it constantly. (2) Histogram would be very useful in Black & White. Probably other filters as well. (3) Reduce & move Insight tab. It takes up too much image real estate. (4) Thanks for bringing back & improving White Balance. It rocks! (5) Petty, but 2 clicks is 1 too many to access edit layers.
Like I said, still a big fan of the app and never hesitate to recommend it. I use it more often than Lightroom, even on non-mobile images.
Why can't I use an emoji in text type? (2.14)

I use the paws 🐾 from my emojis all the time and it used to work and I just tried to use it and it won't show up. It just shows a blank spot. Please fix it so that I can continue to use this emoji!

Perspective changes, variable rotations, and spot brushes... Almost what one can do in Lightroom. Almost.
A Must-Have App For All Serious Photographers (2.14)
12/15/2016 9:30:00 PM
5/5 By Paul in NJ
This is one of a very select number of apps that appear on my coveted front page. Its ability to smartly select areas for selective retouching is uncannily accurate; its Structure feature beats anything Photoshop can do; and its Ambience tool provides a wonderful combination of brightness, shadow opening, warmth, and even incredible highlight protection all at once. My one wish is that it would allow us to adjust more than just Brightness, Contrast, and Saturation in its Selective Tool. Still, I recommend this app without reservation.

Nice improvement to a favorite app (2.14)

5/5 By I like to calculate
This is one of my top three photo editing apps. The new improved photo picker functionality is very handy, as I often edit multiple photos in a session. Thanks!
There are many highly useful features in this masterpiece including: HDR enhancement, healing, access to map location, Tune Image, update existing photos (without needed to make a copy), etc.
It's hard to believe this is a free app, with no ads, or other junk. I'd gladly pay for Snapseed if it ever became necessary.
Crop Crash (2.13)

Crashes every time I try to crop. I've tried to reinstall several times. I wish I could get a refund honestly.

The new white balance adjustment is incredible! This has been my go to app for photo editing for a long time, but it somehow lost its white balance editing capabilities over the course of several app updates. Now, the new white balance editing is the best of any app!! It almost always even gets it right with the auto white balance. Thank you snapseed!
Liquify tool to be complete (2.13)

Replacing photoshop (2.13)

5/5 By doodleninja
This thing is AMAZING. Raw editing is a game changer. I find that I reach for this more often than loading everything onto my computer and then into photoshop. Truly amazing. The face tuning is good but would be nice if it was a brush. Thanks for a great product
Snapseed Version 2.13 (2.13)
12/4/2016 10:01:00 PM
3/5 By GAN IS GREAT
I love Snapseed so much that I use it every time I edit photos. However in the recent update on the UI, a blue bar is added to the top to indicate the strength of the effect placed on the photo. This bothered me ever since. I suggest the background of the workspace should kept grey so users could focus more on the photo. Whenever I edit night time photos, the brighter-than-photo blue bar is a distraction to my eye, causing me to lose focus on the quality of the photo. Hope this get fixed soon. Thank you.
