Snapseed – First Try

Interesting! I had to try this! I came across #snapseed recently. What better way to try it but to pick a pretty mundane “I was there” photo. This thing could be fun!

Busy times, so it has been a few days since I shared Otto Münchow’s blog about Snapseed. I have subsequently used it to tweak a number of photos on both an Android phone and found it to be a very useful tool.

From my point of view it’s about being able to edit a photo quickly and easily on either phone or tablet. If I am travelling I like to keep it light. There is little easier than Android with an OTG adapter to load photos from my DSLR, edit them and upload them. Never mind the excellent camera on the Note 4.

The only downside I have found at this stage is the lack of an easy ability to crop the picture. But I have tools for that, so it’s not a problem.

The software has proved effective for all sorts of images, including a mobile scan shot of a precious photo, which needed enlarging. Needless to say it will see a bit of use in the next couple of weeks.

Snapseed is part of the Nik software suite acquired recently by Google, and released free of charge. It’s available on both Android and iOS.
