What is Snapseed?

Snapseed is a photo-editing application for iOS and Android that enables users to enhance photos and apply digital filters


The History of Snapseed

Snapseed was first released on the iPad in June 2011, and it was selected Apple’s iPad App of the Year 2011. Nik announced Snapseed for the iPhone in August 2011, following the success of the iPad version. Snapseed for Microsoft Windows was later announced on February 27, 2012.

Snapseed was released on Android in December 2012, following Google’s acquisition, and the PC version of Snapseed was discontinued.

Nik released Snapseed 2.0 for iOS and Android on April 9, 2015, with additional tools, capabilities, and a redesigned user interface.



Tone Image

Basic settings like Brightness, Contrast, and Saturation can be tweaked. Other options include Ambiance and Highlights, which allow you to alter the brightness and color of your image.



Improve the sharpness of your image by moving the slider at the top of the screen left or right. Tap Structure to fix the pixels altered by the Sharpen tool.



Drag the S-curve tool up or down to change the colors in your image. If necessary, you can also use it to change certain colors. You can also choose presets if you find working with the graph too scary.
