Best App so far.

Best app to edit pictures. Love all the tools. Professional.
The Worst
by NinjaBunni..$;7$, on 2021/03/02 03:18
This application is great. It has so many features and so much you can use to edit. Literally the only problem is that it does not save your edited photos properly. You’ll edit it to perfection, save a copy, and when you go into your photos to look at it—BAM— there are darkened, yellowed corners out of nowhere. All the editing you did was pointless. Even if you go into the app again, use the Selective tool to correct it, and save, the copy will STILL not save to look how it looked in the app. It will somehow transform when you save it, and it will look awful. It will look unlike anything how it looked in the app. This is infuriating. It makes using the app pointless. Why would I spend so much time editing a photo to look perfect only to have it save looking like someone went in a screwed it all up? I’m opening the app, changing NOTHING about a image, saving it, and even those unedited images come out looking like someone spilt coffee on the corners of it. HOW? As an artist who relies on apps like this to help me post great looking work, I am beyond disappointed. If a photo looks great, it should still look great AFTER you save it. It should look IDENTICAL to how it looked in the app. It doesn’t make any sense why it would suddenly change between saving it and looking at it in your phone’s photo album. I don’t know what kind of bug butchers photos that bad only after they’ve been saved but boy did I waste my time trying to get it to look normal. It’s impossible.
Great app. UPDATE PLEASE
by --** on 2021/03/01 21:51
Needs a refresh for 2021.
Still a good app just wish they would update it
by cormackagoat on 2021/03/01 18:10
Please update it it’s a great app still
Camera doesn’t work in app.
by calebhmclennan on 2021/02/23 18:59
I cannot get my photos to save to my iPhone when using the camera within the app. It simply doesn’t work and is very inconvenient. Disappointing because I like the filters in app a lot! This issue has not been resolved.
Awesome app
by marley that anime girl on 2021/02/23 16:01
I love this app it is completely free and good to edit photos like make photos vintage and make them that one vibe you like
FYI
by LMS1947 on 2021/02/21 22:04
Reporting that Snapseed is hanging after only a few minutes of editing on iOS 14.4 on my iPad Pro 2017. Otherwise it’s an excellent app.
Great for free photo editing
by shampowwww on 2021/02/20 20:55
Has great features for a free app. Would definitely recommend
DONT DOWNLOAD FOR DOUBLE EXPOSURE
by Reditre on 2021/02/20 18:50
Double exposure just doesn’t work at all which is why I downloaded this app. It just says “could not load” and then doesn’t work at all. Cant find any fix online either.
R.I.P. Nik Software x Snapseed
by The Wilde Disciple on 2021/02/20 07:15
I remember when Nik Software started to make waves in the photography community and sure enough like the beginnings of all good stories, they get acquired for a handsome sum by Google. All is well in the lands. Nik maintains autonomy until one dark day when their technology is finally partially assimilated into Google Photos. And while a celebratory moment when Nik Software was free for the masses (I had paid versions that were a gift so that says something), that sun would set when Google decided to drop support and halt development. And so the story goes, another one bites the dust. Its life cut short due to another cycle and another iteration of Google’s never ending Beta test on all good things fun. RIP Snapseed.
Unusable now
by Dgyyegjuyrdu on 2021/02/19 05:35
I used to love Snapseed, but now it keeps exporting with reduced quality, despite my having double checked the settings. It is exporting 12+ megapixel images as 3.1 megapixel. So I have to use the roundabout way to save to Files instead, from the share menu. I cannot easily open the images I want, since it is a mess trying to open images from Snapseed, without a proper file picker. All the images on my iPad show up together in the terrible tile view. I have marked my favorites in Google Photos, but for some reason, I can't share directly to Snapseed. So I have to download them first. Then if I try to start from Files to find the photo, when I use the share menu and select Snapseed, Snapseed says "Error, Could not load image". I've double checked my settings and Snapseed has access to all photos. Sometimes the image will load as read only, and then Snapseed doesn't give me the option to Save, only to export, which is broken as I wrote. Between the broken export and the difficulty getting images from Google Photos to open in Snapseed, I can't get anything done.
YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT THE CONTROLS DO!
by TheGoogleReviewer on 2021/02/14 20:28
There are no instructions to tell you which control does what stuff!!
I love Snapseed but recent updates...
by Logic2i on 2021/02/12 06:09
...have now lost the ability to save my working file. What happened to this feature? It was so nice to save and not lose my edits. And the double exposure won’t import images that are different than the image being edited. I’m not really sure when all these features vanished from the system but these were so key how awesome this app once was.
It’s great!
by Heavenly_Gamer on 2021/02/08 16:42
I’ve been using snapseed for at least 10 months now and it’s really fun I made great stuff with this app, and it’s doing me great.The edits are cool, helpful and I was able to make myself levitate in a picture it’s awesome! I’d give it 5 out of 5👍🏼👌🏼
this app is terrible

Awesome
by Musashi 1583 on 2021/02/08 02:07
As it is the app is amazing... Few things that are missing or can be improved... -anamorphic de-squeeze -save as PNG (there’s an option in settings, but it’s not working) -after adding a frame, the outer part should be transparent not white! - a smart remove background feature
So far okay
by galaxycommand on 2021/02/03 07:59
Is fine .
Great app
by 42094Faye on 2021/02/02 09:14
This is a great app it did not get 5 stars from me because it’s has some glitches where it freezes or just blacks out. I enjoy using this app because it’s free access is great for what I need. I do wish it had more font choices. It’s take a little learning but pretty much anyone can use it if they take their time. Thank you
Update
by Posport on 2021/02/01 21:29
And now that the issues with the brushes are fixed, it is fabulous again! Sure was a great app, but now you can’t use the brushes on an iPad. Dodge and Burn works, but you can’t switch to any other brush.
The best App
by Xuhui Zheng on 2021/01/27 07:11
Powerful and free
No Advertisements!
by Mbimmm on 2021/01/26 17:53
Been using this TRULY FREE app for years. Tried others thinking they might be better but NO WAY! Wont use others because of freakin ads every other click when trying to edit anything.
What happened?
by Jazz Bird on 2021/01/24 06:42
I can’t save my photos!
Great but feature needed
by A Caplan on 2021/01/23 17:24
Use this for all my photo edits pretty much. Even in my graphic designs. What I want to see from it, though, is in the “double exposure” setting. Would love to have a “sticker” mode so that photos can be collaged on top of each other at high opacity without affecting the rest of the image. That’s really the one thing missing.
Please Add Dark Mode!
by Rayman The Bomb on 2021/01/22 06:12
I love this app, it reminds me of Adobe Light room and so much more! It’s quick easy and can make some amazing and stunning photos! I use it to edit most of my photos honestly! And I do a lot of photography, both mobile and DSLR! The only thing that I would absolutely love to see is installing a dark mode theme to the app! The outer borders out side of your edit is whiter, which is fine durning the day! But sometimes I’ll edit some while laying in bed at night, and me and my fiancé are blinded from the bright white borders! It would be amazing if there was support for a dark mode border! Then it would be so much easier and better to edit in the evening! Other than that I love this app! And I highly recommend downloading it!😁📸
5S + Snapseed = professional grade
by ThePelicanNotSoBrief on 2021/01/21 13:21
I use a iPhone 5S to take all my photos but everyone thinks I’ve got a much newer camera since I always edit with this app 💜
Doesn’t support RAW pictures
by giovcaste on 2021/01/19 20:30
Been using this app for so many years and now I can’t even edit my photos properly especially my RAW pictures... this is upsetting.
Bugs
by Two7moons!!! on 2021/01/17 15:22
Will switch back to five stars once you fix the bug where you can’t go back to the main screen after viewing your stack of edits.
Could not save image
by Basandiego on 2021/01/17 04:10
Can’t even save my edited image to my phone. All I get is an error saying “could not save image” 👎🏻
What happened!!!
by Nlmcc on 2021/01/17 03:57
I’ve been using this app since before Google bought it. It has been my go-to app for all photos before I use other apps to work on them. Sometime in the past year or so the app has grown increasingly buggy and it seems Google has abandoned it. It does not work properly on my IPad Pro 11! They’ve done no new versions since IOS 13.1 and it looks as though they are simply ignoring it. Why????? It was an excellent app with many well thought out tools. Now some of those tools only partially work and then are buggy making them frustrating to use. If you don’t intend to support this app then perhaps you should just take it out of the Apple Store.
Unable to save photos
by ShawnKar24 on 2021/01/14 20:48
Wont let me save pictures after I edit them
Underrated app!
by Coolmoon550 on 2021/01/13 15:21
This app is so underrated! There are many useful features like expanding photos, removing unwanted things in the background, and some very nice filters. And it’s all free, there’s no subscription or membership that you have to pay for. It is a little basic though, I’d recommend using this with another photo editor. Many free ones don’t have these features, or you have to pay to unlock them. Overall, I’d definitely recommend this app!
No longer saves to photos
by LivePD fan on 2021/01/12 14:30
I used to love this app, but after an update, there is no longer an option to save the photo to your iPhone photos. There is an option to save as a jpeg, but is doesn’t save to my camera roll, or to the Snapseed album in my photos. I’ve been bypassing by selecting to share the photo, texting it to myself, and saving to my phone from there.
Best photo Editing App out there.
by stopandchangeyourapp on 2021/01/11 15:38
Honestly I tried every photo editing app out there and this one is amazing. I literally couldn’t ask for a better editing app. This is the best of the best. I love how you can do so many things with this app. After using Snapseed I will never use another editing app again.
Does not work
by Portable man on 2021/01/11 10:05
The “double exposure” function doesn’t allow you to put in another picture. It fails to load the image no matter what
Great app but critical failure calls for improvement
by Hsldlfjzk on 2021/01/08 03:26
Awesome app in general, but I frequently encounter an error that brings this app from 5 stars down to 1 or 2. The app will frequently close in the middle of your workflow without warning and you lose all your work. There needs to be some sort of auto recovery feature so that if the app crashes you can recover what you were working on. Very frustrating.
It worked great for a while! Until...
by mapfiled on 2021/01/07 18:55
It worked amazingly for a couple of months, but now all of a sudden, whenever I make edits to my photos, some of the edits are not saved. This happens every time so I have to go back in and now editing takes like 5x as long as I have to do the same edits over and over again for every single photo. Aside from this small (but VERY fatal and time consuming) bug, the app is pretty good.
Underrated Professional App.
by H.U.$.T.L.E.™ on 2021/01/06 06:01
You can do practically anything with this application FOR FREEEEEEEEEEEE, 3.9 stars? I appreciate the hard work the dev team puts in and how this app does so much from watermarking, to making beautiful flyers. Again I can rant for ever, thank you guys! Please stay free and add more I have plenary of feedback to submit if not hire me lol
Photos go into the app upside down with no way to change it.
by SC2346 on 2020/12/29 17:31
I haven’t used this app in a while but I reopened it when it was mentioned as an editor for the new raw on the Apple camera. It hasn’t been updated in quite a while probably because of the new privacy issues. When will this be usable again? There is no support.
TRASH
by -G-nome on 2020/12/22 04:11
I recommend ditching google entirely and using pics art or ps for photo editing!
Export says successful but photo looks the same
by Kcoysia223 on 2020/12/21 17:42
I use Snapseed everyday to make edits to my photos. Ever since I got the iPhone 12 with the 14 ios export isn’t working Snapseed changed their saving options so not you can only export the photo instead of just changing the original photo . I spend all this time editing photos and when I go to export it though it says “export successful” but when I go to my photos it isn’t there and the original photo looks the same. This has been happening for over a month and Snapseed still hasn’t addressed it. Disappointing I’m going to have to find another app if they don’t fix it.
What happened to this app?!
by HomerHorowitz on 2020/12/20 15:17
Don’t be fooled by the positive reviews, they are outdated. For years Snapseed was my go to mobile editing app. It was the first app to support raw photos and generally just had a good selection of tools. A few years ago it was purchased by Google along with the rest of Nik software and I’m pretty sure they intentionally sabotaged it. This app is absolute garbage now! If you’re using it to edit your photos then you should know, even if they look alright to your eyes on your 2 inch screen, they are not. This app is destroying your images and you’ll never bring them back. It will muddy up all the detail in saturated areas, totally blow any highlights and bring noise in the shadows. It hasn’t been updated in years so forget using raw images from any newer cameras. It just creates a low res JPEG preview instead but gives no warning of that. Anything you bring into this app should be thrown out afterwards so you don’t ever mistake it for a decent file. It’s really sad to see what Google did here and I don’t know why they didn’t just take it off the market if that’s what they wanted. At this point it’s doing a disservice to anybody who wants once relied on it or thought it was still a contender in the Mobile photo editing world. Google obviously does some great things but they also do some very terrible things to their competition. This app and the people who depended on it fell victim to that.
Can’t export
by MrFrizZLE on 2020/12/20 00:21
Formerly the best photo editing app for the past 10 years. Recently they removed the “Save” and “Save As Copy” functions. Now you can only “Export”... which literally does nothing. No edited photo saved to the Camera Roll. From the recent reviews, many people are having the same issue. Please fix!
Good app
by Millie Milk YT on 2020/12/19 18:44
Well here is the thing it is a little tricky to use but it does so many different things it helps me edit my photos for my YT like some people do but you can check me out I am MILLIE MILK on YT well enough of that and back to the app you can do contrast and filters it is pretty great so if you want advice from me you should get the app

Over and over again the app goes into the Wheel of Death. You try to edit your layers and suddenly the Wheel of Death destroys an hour of work. Please stabilize the app. Thanks.
Great App But Needed Some Features
by Khmergolfer on 2020/12/18 14:03
It has been over a year since the last update. Please don’t abandon this app, I know you guys make no money from it but it is such a great photo editing tool for many people. Also please add warp tool and fixed the double exposure (resize the layer on double exposure has it limitation. Sometime I have want to make the over layer image extra small but the app doesn’t allowed me to do that. It stop the down sizing at certain size. So please make it unlimited resize on double exposure feature).

by GtH swag on 2020/12/16 18:36
personally i think this is a 3 1/2 cause the part i always see in the adds where u color red and then it disappears doesn’t work very well it leaves a really weird blurry space that doubles the thing next to it maybe you’ll have better luck
Can’t export
by slklc on 2020/12/13 19:35
After the most recent update, I can’t export any photos which makes all the time I spent editing them completely useless. I’ll raise my rating when that changes.

Love this, just needs more features
by Nonook8044 on 2020/12/09 14:50
I’ve been using this app for the last 6 months I’ve gotta say, this is hands down the best app for on-the-go photo editing! My only gripe is the lack of easy to add features like stacking pictures, chroma deletes, and so on. I would like to add a transparent picture on top of my first picture but the closest I can get is by using the double exposure feature; but it has its flaws. Personally, if the Snapseed team were to add these features, I would give this app 10 stars!!!!
Big problem
by paniz7720217 on 2020/12/08 00:27
Well I was using the app and it was perfect,but at a time I had to free up my phone so I deleted the app,now that I want to reinstall it, it constantly errors that you have the app on your phone:( I don’t know what to do...I love the app but it’s not working for me.
Snapseed is my muse.
by byroniceye on 2020/12/07 19:49
I’ve been using Snapseed as my go-to app for years now. It’s the first in a chain of editing apps if I’m feeling creative, and often the last as well. Their photo tools alone offer more than many editing apps, but the Portrait, Head Pose, and Looks features are essential for photos on the go. I always start with Healing, usually followed by a hint of Glamour Glow, and even Noir if I’m in that sort of mood (which is often; LOVE the Noir). Also, among all the editing apps that I own and have tried, their Vignette feature is my favorite by far, which seems a minor thing, but really isn’t. Honestly there are far too many adjustable features and filters to go into in this space, just from a photo editing perspective; I’ve barely mentioned the artistic applications, which seem endless. I will never not use this app. Dig it and dig in.
One Major Issue!
by FitnessFanLV on 2020/12/07 15:52
I love this app because it allows me to make so many changes and improvements to my photos Unfortunately I have one major issue, when you select “Healing” to remove objects from a photo...the size of the eraser tool is far too large with no way change the size I also use an app called Photo Retouch and it allows you to minimize the eraser tool down to a very small dot about the size of a period, for ultra fine retouching or increase the size to very large This is a major drawback of the Snapseed app and it pushes me to use Photo Retouch often, please update the app to allow this feature Thank you so much!

by bbbkjm88 on 2020/12/06 16:58
It’s been my go-to for years. And I love almost everything about it. But one thing I do wish I could do is when I’m in Head Pose mode, to be able to single out one person’s face. You can only use this tool if it’s a picture of one single person, which in the case, it is a fantastic tool.
Great For Photos
by TheJasmineJaguar on 2020/12/06 00:42
I love this app, the blue feature is really cool and I probably use that the most. I just wish that you could edit videos as well!
This version doesn’t save to camera roll

Training for Pro Apps
by freddyg! on 2020/11/24 16:31
This app is absolutely amazing. It’s a very thorough and robust editing app that will prepare you for using something more substantial like Affinity Photo, or Light Room. You may not even need those apps due to how robust this one is. This app is very intuitive & well organized. I originally purchased affinity photo as my main editing app, but was instantly overwhelmed by the pro level tools and utterly rubbish menu setup. This app helped me find my bearings and know what things could/should look like when editing.
stamping photos with “December 31, 2000?”
by Tucson flickr user 1111 on 2020/11/23 03:06
Love, snapseed, but the past few weeks, it’s been stamping edited ohotos with “December 31, 2000”—what’s going on?! I’ve uninstalled, reinstalled, but there’s no change AND there’s no obvious way to report this problem, other than here and by ‘yelling’ in twitter... Please fix this!!

File Deletion
by SwankPeRFection on 2020/11/13 18:05
How the F* do you delete files you’ve worked on?! The app has no intuitive File menu to close the current project after exporting or sharing the image. I close the app down and reopen it and it opens the same image back up. I want that gone!!! How the h* do you do that?!

Update Works!
by AlliTray on 2020/11/11 10:40
I have enjoyed this app for over a year, recently the export didn’t seem to be working quite right. I have the iPad Pro. So I reinstalled Snapseed and now it works perfect. I have the most current update for my iPad. I hope everyone does this. I also had to do the same for several other apps including Chick-fil-A. I hope others see this and realize it does work. I also have a you tube channel and this is the only app I use for the thumbnail, I like mine to have all the same font and color so I need y’all to reload and try again and update your reviews once you see it does work. I would also gladly pay about 2-5$ or a one time fee to keep developers happy and continue effort to keep this around.
Doesn’t Export Photo Now
by CoachKimColorado on 2020/11/10 16:03
I’m a professional photographer and this has been my go to app for the photos from my phone for years. However, recently it stopped working and I can’t export my photos making the app useless. I’m sad that I have to find a new app since this one no longer works. Edit: The only workaround I’ve found is when clicking to share, I share it in a text message to myself. The edits are saved that way.
Really good potential
by Thanatos_Original on 2020/11/10 07:10
I would love to see many other feature, like astrophotography tools. The stacking tool works cool but one huge major flaw, I need to be able to zoom in on both images at once to align background image to the new one I’m adding. Unfortunately when I try to zoom in it only zooms into the image that I’m attic and not the background. Unfortunately as a result of this you can never line up 2,10,20 pictures perfectly together :(
Fix exporting
by Beasley123456 on 2020/11/09 15:55
This app used to be PERFECT but the export doesn't work now ever since the update. It won't put any of your edits on your camera roll
Wow
by JPx88 on 2020/11/07 06:27
Newbie photo editor here. I have some experience with Photoshop from a college course I took what seems like many moons ago. So actually I’ve got squat for editing experience but this app has all these helpful tutorials that are detailed explanations of the app’s functions and goes further onto explain useful editing tips.
Eh
by gawbayyy on 2020/11/05 18:24
I love this app a lot! I use it everytime but is there a way you can put portrait mode? Not just a circular part? It would mean a lot because I have to use a couple of apps to get the right texture and blur as wanted
Please read and fix!!
by Tabs1023c on 2020/11/05 16:47
Was working flawlessly until recently!! Wont save the images back to your photos on your phone at all. It’s like the never ending spinning wheel of death.

Features no longer working
by Americanbeauty925 on 2020/11/04 23:58
This was my go-to app for the longest but many of the features (I.e. The expand feature) have stopped working.
PLEASE ADDRESS THE EXPORTING ISSUE
by Babs7117 on 2020/11/04 23:23
This is normally a great app and one I use multiple times a week. However, after the most recent iOS update, nothing will export to the camera roll. So basically it’s a useless app right now bc you can’t do anything with it. The complaints are here but nothing has been done.
If it’s not broke, don’t fix it
by bryden76 on 2020/11/04 02:11
This app used to work flawlessly until the more recent updates / changes . If it’s not broke don’t fix it guys . Now it freezes up regularly and saving the photo to your gallery doesn’t seem to be an option anymore .
Devs Please Read!
by Mercari Help & Info on 2020/11/04 01:39
I will change this review once this is corrected... I use this app all the time on my iPad Pro. Normally I love it however just in the last couple days it is not working properly. After I do some minimal touching up of my photos I push the button to upload the edited photo to my photos. It will start going through the motions of uploading the edited photo but then now it starts spinning in a blue circle like it’s thinking but it gets stuck. While it is doing this I can not do anything, get it to stop, upload a new pic, etc. I have tried getting in & out of the app many times & have also deleted then reloaded the app hoping this would fix any minor glitches. Sadly nothing has worked.. I really do not want to have to download another app.. I use your app all of the time & really would like to continue using it!! Please fix this & advise where do I go to get this fixed?? There is nothing wrong w/my iPad Pro & this has nothing to do w/me trying to do too many edits at once.. Doesn’t matter what I do. Your app will not allow me to upload anything.. HELP!!
One of my go to apps, but what’s the problem?
by Foxy Roxy 335 on 2020/11/02 14:08
I love this app. I use it literally everyday, but since the iOS 14 update it won’t save pics. PLEASE for the LOVE of PHOTOGRAPHY, fix this glorious app! Ugh 🤦‍♀️
The reason I love this appp
by bdhsggsgdhshdh on 2020/11/01 17:26
I like this map I have a YouTube channel and I’ve been trying to make a logo until I discovered snap seed I was able to add more stuff in one picture the app is amazing.
Can’t export on iOS 14

Used to be a great app, but now I can’t even save my edits, which makes it useless. Oh well.
Need upgrade for IOS 14!’
by ggafff on 2020/10/27 17:01
Like others, I love this app BUT it needs to be upgraded for IOS 14! I too cannot open an image from the default album (I have an XS max). I try but it crashes every time. Yet I can open the same image if it’s in another album. Yes I can work around this bug but why should I have too? Since you haven’t upgraded for 11 months I’m beginning to think what others suspect: that Google is letting this great app become obsolete as it begins to beef up the editing capabilities of Google Photos. How about a response Google???
another evil google abandonware
by ios 5 was the best on 2020/10/26 13:05
doesn’t seem google puts too much attention and effort into this. they want you to use their online photos app and i get a feeling they will dump this the same way they dumped picasa. it’s lagging ***far behind*** what adobe lightroom and ps express can do in 2020 for free.
Love this App!! - not working with new iPhone update.
by little-louis2017 on 2020/10/23 22:01
I love this app! It’s really easy to use when I’m not editing on my computer. My iPhone updated and now the app will not save updated photos 😕
Adding free form focus points!!!
by CEOofSimp on 2018/07/30 11:51
I really love using this app to edit all my photos. I’m rating 4 stars, to possibly grab your attention on a few new suggestions to add into the apps editing features. First, I think adding a free form focus area in the Lens Blur instead of shapes would be AMAZING. Along with that adding the ability to not just have one focal point, but multiple focal pints, while still being able to blur out the background or things the editor doesn’t want the photo to focus on. Another new feature you should add to this app should be to have a onscreen convenient undo/redo buttons while using any tool in the app; that way the editor won’t have to continuously click in and out of the tool in order to make an alter to an edit or to fix a mistake. I realize there’s an erasing tool, but when you have much to edit and a list of other photos you plan to edit as well, it is time consuming; not to mention that many people using there fingers to edit will likely cause a mistake to worsen by using the eraser tool, which is well - another negative. - Anyways I really do hope someone who can add these two features read my review, and will actually consider adding these two features. I guarantee it will make many people happy. -Overall though, this photo editing app is AMAZING and I highly recommend using it!!!
Unparalleled
by BeatlesFan128 on 2017/11/21 02:37
The app is very intuitive, and even the advanced features aren't cluttered or overly complicated (that said, performance and accuracy isn't compromised either). There are a lot of features, and I like how you can choose to save your edits step by step, and can see exactly what you did (and even undo!) after a picture is saved. This does everything you need it to do, and if you spend a lot of time you can get professional grade editing. The only reason I'm not giving this 5/5 is because I seem to be having a problem with the newest update. I can't open pictures, like at all. Even ones I'm certain I've edited with this app. It's a pretty major issue but I don't want to dissuade anyone from getting this because of a bad update, since I've never had a single issue before. Hopefully it will be patched soon.
What happened to this app?!
by HomerHorowitz on 2020/12/20 15:17
Don’t be fooled by the positive reviews, they are outdated. For years Snapseed was my go to mobile editing app. It was the first app to support raw photos and generally just had a good selection of tools. A few years ago it was purchased by Google along with the rest of Nik software and I’m pretty sure they intentionally sabotaged it. This app is absolute garbage now! If you’re using it to edit your photos then you should know, even if they look alright to your eyes on your 2 inch screen, they are not. This app is destroying your images and you’ll never bring them back. It will muddy up all the detail in saturated areas, totally blow any highlights and bring noise in the shadows. It hasn’t been updated in years so forget using raw images from any newer cameras. It just creates a low res JPEG preview instead but gives no warning of that. Anything you bring into this app should be thrown out afterwards so you don’t ever mistake it for a decent file. It’s really sad to see what Google did here and I don’t know why they didn’t just take it off the market if that’s what they wanted. At this point it’s doing a disservice to anybody who wants once relied on it or thought it was still a contender in the Mobile photo editing world. Google obviously does some great things but they also do some very terrible things to their competition. This app and the people who depended on it fell victim to that.
A Must-Have App For All Serious Photographers
by Paul in NJ on 2017/03/21 23:52
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. On top of that are regularly-introduced enhancements like the Curves tool, and the incredible White Balance tool which allows you to see your eyedropper effect in real time as you drag it around your image – a huge advantage I have not seen in any other mobile app or even desktop program. On top of all of this, there are other miraculous effects that seem to be added every other week that are too numerous to delineate here but are absolutely worth exploring. My only two wishes are that 1) a clone tool be added; and 2) there were even more options in the Selective and Brush Tools. Still, I recommend this app without reservation.
Worked great, until it didn’t
by Adoragurl on 2018/05/05 06:19
I must start by saying that I love Snapseed. I have used it for several months taking inventory photos for my business and it has worked great for me, until it didn’t. I’m not sure what happened, if it update messed with the settings, or what. When I use the text filter it used to work great, now when I use it the words are so tiny that they are barely visible. I have googled everything I can to try to find a fix to this as well as searching within the settings of the app to see if I can change the text size, but with the exception of making the bubble that I’m putting the text in extremely large, I can find no other fix. Also, I have edited hundreds of photos with Snapseed only to wake up one day and ALL of my photos are back to their unedited state. Thankfully I have most of them uploaded to my computer or I would have had to redo them all. Very disappointing. I’m hoping any future updates to the app will fix this and the text functionality because until that happens this app is essentially useless to me and I love this app.
It was great—until it wasn’t
by Suzanne T. on 2018/10/15 18:20
When I first discovered Snapseed, I was teaching a smart phone photography class and didn’t know how I was going to be able to help the non-Apple students. This app saved the day. I have relied on it for several years now. My 10,000-word class presentation Is filled with all kinds of Snapseed Screenshots. Students seem to like it a lot. Imagine my dismay when, a couple of weeks ago, the screen turns black whenever I try to access a photo from either my or photos or favorite is filled with all kinds of Snapseed Screenshots. Students seem to like it a lot. Imagine my dismay when, a couple of weeks ago, the screen turns black whenever I tap a photo from either my All Photos or Favorites app album! I can still swipe through the filmstrip if I need to open a photo for editing, but that’s so impractical for 9K images on my iPhone X iOS 12.0.1. During class, I also project live-screen demos from my phone (using an HDMI-to-lightning connector). The only place I’ve found this problem discussed is on Reddit. No one has a solution yet. Please, Google: help!
I’m in Love, I’m in Love!
by AuntBoogie on 2018/09/12 00:53
I have been using Snapseed for MANY years; it is the longest-reigning photo editing app in my iLife. Over the years I have tried so many photo apps that seemed promising from their description, but wound up not delivering the goods. The lone survivor of many cullings of my photo apps herd, Snapseed is tried and true! The fact that I am able to edit a photo and then Save the new edited version OVER the original version (by Allowing the app to ‘Modify’) is the reason why I fell in love with the Snapseed app. I am able to write a note or add a label on a photo and then save it without creating a new needless copy and, most importantly, without moving the photo from its original spot in my timeline. This allows my edited photos to remain alongside any untouched photos, in their originally captured order. This simple yet invaluable feature is what makes Snapseed a standout for me! I do wish we could open a chosen photo in Snapseed directly from the Photos app (either via (a) the ‘Edit’ button ‘...’ Activities, or (b) the ‘Share’ button Activities). And honestly, if you were to add a ‘TOOL’ that allows us to draw (and then move/resize/reshape/rotate) lines, arrows and maybe even squares (shapes), you would become the HOLY GRAIL of photo editing apps! I would [figuratively] shout praises of your name from the mountaintops!!! I am always excited and never disappointed when you release an update! Keep up the AMAZING work!!!
Unusable now
by Dgyyegjuyrdu on 2021/02/19 05:35
I used to love Snapseed, but now it keeps exporting with reduced quality, despite my having double checked the settings. It is exporting 12+ megapixel images as 3.1 megapixel. So I have to use the roundabout way to save to Files instead, from the share menu. I cannot easily open the images I want, since it is a mess trying to open images from Snapseed, without a proper file picker. All the images on my iPad show up together in the terrible tile view. I have marked my favorites in Google Photos, but for some reason, I can't share directly to Snapseed. So I have to download them first. Then if I try to start from Files to find the photo, when I use the share menu and select Snapseed, Snapseed says "Error, Could not load image". I've double checked my settings and Snapseed has access to all photos. Sometimes the image will load as read only, and then Snapseed doesn't give me the option to Save, only to export, which is broken as I wrote. Between the broken export and the difficulty getting images from Google Photos to open in Snapseed, I can't get anything done.
Amazing mobile app on the go!
by SeekAndDes7roy2 on 2019/10/26 12:25
This app is so great! I don’t have to pay a subscription like I have to for Lightroom and I am able to edit raw photos! The only downfall is that it has become very laggy, when after I edit a photo from the raw adjustments so I can move on to other adjustments, it becomes stuck in the loading/processing part and then crashes more often now. And whenever I work on photos that involve portraits, using the portrait and healing features, it looks fine within the app. But when I export them to my camera roll, it seems like there is an exporting issue and the portraits look really bad and it looks like the blemishes that’s I took away with the healing app actually get heighten and look even worst. Same for when I use the portrait feature as well. So there is an exporting issue and loading issue with raw files. Other than that, it’s a great app for on the go, run and gun type of style when I don’t want too or can pull out my laptop. I hope these issues get fixed in a future update.
Best Photo Editing App
by katiekrl on 2019/04/22 12:25
Taking photos is one of my favorite hobbies. Editing photos, well...it’s just not. While helping my sister start her own business, we needed product photos. I snapped some off my phone that looked nice, but they needed an extra boost through editing. No other photo editing apps I was previously using were doing it for me. So, I went looking. Found this one and instantly fell in love! I send all my photos through this app before posting now. Super simple to use. I love the swiping feature to go between settings and to adjust settings. It makes the whole process seamless and effective. Only thing I wish I could do, and it’s entirely possible I’m just not seeing it because I’m still learning new things on this app everyday, is to edit specific colors in the photo. Otherwise, this app is hands down the absolute best!

Tools are great, but glitchy
by Jesse1870 on 2019/11/25 20:00
Using this app for a photography class for editing and creating a color splash effect worked great and was a huge (and free) lifesaver until recently where I get halfway through editing a photo and the brush tool becomes unresponsive, making it impossible to finish my work I already spent a bunch of my time on. If I try and save what I have, the entire app becomes unresponsive. I then have to close the app and start all over, so I find myself rushing through editing just to get *something* done before the brush tool and soon after the app becomes unresponsive again. Extremely frustrating when I have a busy schedule in college and can’t spend all day editing each image 5+ times just for one rushed result. Other than that this app is GREAT for what it allows you to do, especially on an iPad. I’d love if this could get fixed so I can continue to use this app well after this class, because when it works, it’s amazing.
Snapseed is my muse.
by byroniceye on 2020/12/07 19:49
I’ve been using Snapseed as my go-to app for years now. It’s the first in a chain of editing apps if I’m feeling creative, and often the last as well. Their photo tools alone offer more than many editing apps, but the Portrait, Head Pose, and Looks features are essential for photos on the go. I always start with Healing, usually followed by a hint of Glamour Glow, and even Noir if I’m in that sort of mood (which is often; LOVE the Noir). Also, among all the editing apps that I own and have tried, their Vignette feature is my favorite by far, which seems a minor thing, but really isn’t. Honestly there are far too many adjustable features and filters to go into in this space, just from a photo editing perspective; I’ve barely mentioned the artistic applications, which seem endless. I will never not use this app. Dig it and dig in.
Avoid 2.18.2 update if you already use Snapseed.
by JohnTujunga on 2018/08/28 23:16
As many have already expressed their frustration with the latest version, it is prone to crashing. Once it crashes, the app becomes unstable (repeated crashing on app launch or picture selection) which leads me to have to delete and reinstall the app. I have lost quite a few saved “Looks” and a cumulative sum of a few hours because of this issue. It’s still my go-to photo editing app but I have to take precautions when using to avoid lost work/time (eg. “Save a copy” periodically so I can re-import the picture with all the edit steps and re-save as a “look” after the app crashes and is reinstalled). Overall a powerful and feature full app FOR FREE! Highly recommend and I’m anticipating the next update that hopefully address the crashing problem. -iPhone 8 -iOS 11.4.1
The Worst
by NinjaBunni..$;7$, on 2021/03/02 03:18
This application is great. It has so many features and so much you can use to edit. Literally the only problem is that it does not save your edited photos properly. You’ll edit it to perfection, save a copy, and when you go into your photos to look at it—BAM— there are darkened, yellowed corners out of nowhere. All the editing you did was pointless. Even if you go into the app again, use the Selective tool to correct it, and save, the copy will STILL not save to look how it looked in the app. It will somehow transform when you save it, and it will look awful. It will look unlike anything how it looked in the app. This is infuriating. It makes using the app pointless. Why would I spend so much time editing a photo to look perfect only to have it save looking like someone went in a screwed it all up? I’m opening the app, changing NOTHING about a image, saving it, and even those unedited images come out looking like someone spilt coffee on the corners of it. HOW? As an artist who relies on apps like this to help me post great looking work, I am beyond disappointed. If a photo looks great, it should still look great AFTER you save it. It should look IDENTICAL to how it looked in the app. It doesn’t make any sense why it would suddenly change between saving it and looking at it in your phone’s photo album. I don’t know what kind of bug butchers photos that bad only after they’ve been saved but boy did I waste my time trying to get it to look normal. It’s impossible.
Please Add Dark Mode!
by Rayman The Bomb on 2021/01/22 06:12
I love this app, it reminds me of Adobe Light room and so much more! It’s quick easy and can make some amazing and stunning photos! I use it to edit most of my photos honestly! And I do a lot of photography, both mobile and DSLR! The only thing that I would absolutely love to see is installing a dark mode theme to the app! The outer borders out side of your edit is whiter, which is fine durning the day! But sometimes I’ll edit some while laying in bed at night, and me and my fiancé are blinded from the bright white borders! It would be amazing if there was support for a dark mode border! Then it would be so much easier and better to edit in the evening! Other than that I love this app! And I highly recommend downloading it!😁📸
Amazing but!
by EMMANUEL AKIN on 2017/06/19 18:40
Truly amazing I have been creating all types of fine photography and art with Snapseed for years ever since its beginning. Love the new features continue to upgrade because I feel as though I'm the ambassador and would love to see more! Every one thinks I'm on a computer editing Lightroom or ps but I'm on Snapseed that goes for every single piece of my work check my | IG:poorspirit | and you'll see! Please make changes for face enhancement it destroys shadows on face and neck far too often i have to dodge & burn. I think medium leaves orange tint around face and hair and it gets noticeable sometimes. Last when I deeply edit as I should catching the small details once I pass about 6 layers the image beings to distort and has pixels and rings in shadows & highlights. HEALING DONE TO IMAGE IS ALTERED INCORRECT AFTER IMAGE IS SAVED!!!!!
Hands Down The Best!
by LadyJ828 on 2019/07/29 10:36
I have been using Snapseed for over a year now. I use a plethora of other photo editing apps (Photoshop, Pixlr, Enlight, Aviary, Facetune, etc). Hands down, this has so much more to offer than any other app and I find this to be my go to App. The Tools that make this so worth while: the HD tool, healing tool, and the selective area tool (allowing you to lighten or enhance any portion of the photograph). Having said that, there is only one tool that I do still need that is offered in other apps and is not available on Snapseed. A blur tool. I find when I am in need of this tool I resort to Aviary (no longer supported) or Facetune. If this was included, I would have no reason to use any other App. Thank you Snapseed, maybe someday you would consider adding a blur tool.
Excellent photo tool
by BargainHunter168 on 2017/11/05 15:25
First of all, I like its handy, effective, I don’t need to import pictures into laptop and use Adobe photoshop. Nowadays, people take pictures with no serious purpose, maybe just for posting on social media. A quick makeover is all its purpose. I used serious photo tools long time ago, often it was very time consuming to accomplish a small task. Now Snapseed provides a lot of practical tools, with newer version, Looks->Last edits saves one time for similar batch processing, Tools->True image->Ambiance is my favorite tool to correct color tones, brightness at one time, Tools->True image->Shadows is also useful to save pictures with sharp contrast. Besides, I found this app is easiest to learn. Just select a sample picture, then apply each tool to examine the outcome, it’s fun!
Update Works!
by AlliTray on 2020/11/11 10:40
I have enjoyed this app for over a year, recently the export didn’t seem to be working quite right. I have the iPad Pro. So I reinstalled Snapseed and now it works perfect. I have the most current update for my iPad. I hope everyone does this. I also had to do the same for several other apps including Chick-fil-A. I hope others see this and realize it does work. I also have a you tube channel and this is the only app I use for the thumbnail, I like mine to have all the same font and color so I need y’all to reload and try again and update your reviews once you see it does work. I would also gladly pay about 2-5$ or a one time fee to keep developers happy and continue effort to keep this around.
Saved edited photos are reverting to original
by Can't mobile order on 2018/04/13 16:41
I’ve contacted Apple and they couldn’t help me. I’ve been using snapseed for almost a year to edit photos I take daily. I save my edited version over the original to save space on my phone. Over the past 2 days (since the iPhone iOS update) random photos I’ve edited will revert to their original version on their own. They’ll save for a period of say 12 hours and then I’ll go into my photos library to use that photo and all the edits are gone. This only happens to SOME photos I’ve edited. Not all. Is there anything you can do to fix the issue? Otherwise, I LOVE snapseed. But I spend a large amount of time getting my photos perfect and can’t afford to waste my time editing everything over and over.
Honest app
by nickname for a person on 2020/06/05 03:35
Wow this is the most honest pic app I’ve ever seen and it’s very useful and it is very fun and fast and free the three f’s. It was the only one I could find everyone should have this app. There is no downside! I just have three suggestions can you put a makeup tool so if there is a person in the photo you can put makeup on them. Another one is that you can change the background by choosing a photo you already have to the background. My last suggestion is that people can make stickers by going to a photo they have and cutting out the part they want the stickers to be. Please consider my suggestions it would mean the world to me. Again I love this app and in suggest it to everyone thank you so much Snapseed team!
From amazing to unreliable
by Eversoe on 2018/06/23 16:11
I have been a major fan of Snapseed for years, turning many friends onto its powerful photo editing tools. But with the latest update in June of 2018, it has all of a sudden become unreliable. I recently returned from a 3-day trek into the Grand Canyon, and spent an hour editing photos using Snapseed. Yesterday I went to post some of the pics, and more than half of the photos I had edited had reverted to their unedited state. Confused, I spent another hour editing the photos, and then posted a couple on Instagram. Today, I went to post another photo, and discovered yet again, several of my photos had automatically reverted to their unedited state. I can share screenshots showing one of the photos I posted to Instagram looks totally different that the photo on my phone now. This is extremely frustrating, time-wasting and makes me lose complete faith in trusting my photos to Snapseed. Please, please fix this!!!!
Amazing App!
by Margaret es on 2019/05/28 16:46
I use this app ALL the time on my phone. I’ve also recommended it to others who use it all the time now too. I’m a designer and use Photoshop/Illustrator/Lightroom on desktop. Snapseed is my go-to when editing photos on my phone. I have a request for developers - would it be possible to add a feature when masking layers, where you can make straight-line selections quickly? I mask a lot, and many times I’m masking out a square object. It would be amazing to have a feature where I can tap on the corner of the square, and then tap the other corner and have it make a straight line, like the Polygonal Lasso tool in Photoshop. If you added this feature it would be amazing!
App crashing after exported edit of photo?
by fwhitlatch on 2018/02/06 17:07
Hello, so now for the last 6 months I have to reinstall the app after about 1 to 3 photo edits. What happens after applying all my edits I go to export photo from the three options. Doesn’t matter what option I pick it will crash. After crash it does safe the photo but if I try to go back into app it just opens and then closes out. At this time now not being able to use the app at all. So then I have to delete the app and reinstall to do more editing but the same process of 1 to 3 photos then it crashes and having to delete then reinstall again. Can you guys please fix his I love this app but have installed it now a zillion times to keep using it and it’s getting old that it keeps crashing. It never used to do this. Could you guys please help? Hopefully to read this since the help app side won’t let me write a note like this there. Thanks, Franklin. W
Strange lines in original photo
by nicolzi789 on 2017/11/02 13:28
This is my favorite app! No one can believe my photos come from my iPhone. I use snapseed to really perfect and fine tune. The reason why I am not giving it 5 stars is because a new update is creating very faint vertical lines in the original photo before editing. To give an example, it looks like a photo taken of a picture on a computer screen. The original image (found in the photo album) does not have the lines. It only shows when opened in Snapseed. The lines become even more apparent when using an editing tool. I will give it 5 stars when the lines go away. Other than that, still my favorite editing app.
Snapseed continues to evolve gracefully
by UpRocka on 2020/10/06 00:34
Thanks to the consistent attention that Snapseed still gets from the dev team, it remains one of the top, if not the top app, for photo editing still to this day. Ease of use, huge variety of tools... could def use a few small add ons and improvements but overall it’s amazing app. Would love to see for the future: 1. A modern update to the grunge, grainy film, and retrolux tools. 2. Full control over color choices when using the black and white tool rather than being limited to only a few select gels. ie. Choose any color to be filtered through instead of the limited hard set color options. Blues are very powerful but the specific blue available is not always applicable. Being able to adjust HSL would very valuable. 3. Add blur back to vignette as it once was ages ago 4. Add a “dust/emulsion” tool 5. Add a HSL tool FINALLY!!! ❤️ 6. Add a toning tool for cross process. 7. Improve QR Sharing both aesthetically in regard to the image Snapseed output for sharing, as well as make the ability to scan a Snapseed QR look into into the app via images loaded from the camera roll. — the current QR feature only allows you to use your camera to scan an image, which ironically defeats the entire purpose of sharing QR looks from Snapseed at the moment. 8. BONUS: BATCH PROCESS!!! Pleassssse!!!
Saved pictures blank in phone gallery
by OkKaye on 2019/10/13 18:31
Could not find a place to send developer feedback for a problem I’m experiencing, so I had to leave a review instead. I’m using an iPhone X on IOS 13.2. Anytime I save an image in Snapseed via any save method (save, save as copy, or export), the image “saves” but only shows up as a blank image in the iPhone picture gallery. It cannot be viewed in any other way, opened with any other apps, or even opened again with Snapseed. This means any and all photos I have tried to edit do not save correctly and pretty much makes the whole app non-functional. I have screenshots of you would like them and a record screen video to show you what’s happening. Please fix - as it stands now, this app is not functional without being able to properly save images after editing. Once fixed, I will update my review. Thanks!
Blemishes, Acne and Scars.
by Amazing999999 on 2018/03/11 14:52
i got this app because i was looking at pictures of my girlfriend and she’s very insecure about her facial acne and scars... so, i looked into a simple photoshop esk app for covering this up. this app was trending so i tried it out. it was very smooth and between a simple filter and some smoothing out with their wand, it was amazing. zoom in and you can work with every little (i know this sounds gross but it’s real life) zit, pimple, pore and scar and cover it up how you want to. between this amazing and handy trick the filters are great, you can crop, edit, add text, change brightness, sharpness, saturation etc. it’s truly and amazing app. plus... ITS FREE! download it and see if you like it!
Great App but needs to open from other Drives
by tunesmith on 2018/08/30 22:58
Love the app, super simple to use and turn a good photo into a great photo. My only gripe is that I can only open photos from the camera roll. I would like to be able to open photos from Google Photos, Dropbox, One Drive, Create Drive (Adobe) etc so I don’t have to move things around so much. Also, it would be nice to be able to save the Snapseed result to another directory for modified work and jpg’s for sharing to another directory just for sharing. Prevents confusion as to the original, mod and share output. This is the workflow I have used for years on the PC and would greatly help organization. One other request though not IOS related: Make Snapseed available for Windows using Chrome Extension. Thanks for listening. Original: Haven’t really been able to thoroughly test as yet because the first time using it crashed and hung my iPad Pro running latest version of IOS. Have seen other people’s work with Snapseed and it’s impressive, but crashing/hanging doesn’t fly.
Snapseed starts crashing
by iphone8snapseeduser on 2018/12/06 15:56
I am not sure if it’s Snapseed fault but it just became useless on my iPhone 8. Every time I want to open “ All Photos “ on my device the app crashes. I used to love Snapseed. Post Scriptum. I had to review my previous review. Apparently it might be the latest IOS updates causing the Snapseed crash. I had the same problem when I tried to select photos to edit from my phone library with other apps too. A quick fix is to Copy your photo from your library and Paste it on Snapseed for editing. Snapseed is so powerful that’s worth the extra steps you might have to do in order to use this app.
My fave photo editing app!!!
by extorsys on 2017/03/21 23:12
Is worth say that i have a masters degree in digital photography... I have tried countless photo editing apps for both the iphone and ipad pro. Without a doubt, SnapSeed is my absolute fave app on the ipad pro and iphone. It gives me incredible power to enhance my images, i love the precision i get when using apple pencil, the healing tool works amazingly! The new updates of double exposures and expansion of images are amazing!!! So creators of Snapseed please dont kill me because i know you already have the best photo editing app! But hear me out, if you add warping and gradients i will simply stop using all other photographic apps.
Where did the edits go?
by kefichick on 2018/04/18 21:56
I had been using Snapseed as my go to app for all my photo editing for almost 2 years now. I must have 8 or 9 photo editing apps but once I discovered Snapseed, I stuck with that. But now I am trying to figure out what to do. I spent about 2 hours editing a bunch of photos from my Yosemite trip, went over them one last time before bed, woke up and the edits had all disappeared! I did a google search to find out what had happened, explored the app extensively, deleted and reloaded the app and finally did all the edits again. Yup, they all disappeared and I have now wasted far too much time and am losing heart. I guess it is time to find another app unless someone has a suggestion of what to do! So bummed!
Probably best editing app for mobile!
by TheAwesomeJuan on 2019/02/23 09:03
This is an app that you simply download and keep. I have had so much success with this app that I haven't ever thought or even tried searching for another to replace it. It does everything it advertises so well and rarely crashes. I only ask that in a future update we can receive a shortcut to access the app straight from camera roll. A very simple addition would be very appreciated. Sometimes I'll scroll through my photos and decide to edit, so the shortcut would be dope. Give this app a try! It's free with no add-on purchases, unlike many other apps.
Edited versions disappeared from photo album after deleting the photos in SnapSeed album
by Classof65 on 2018/05/06 21:59
Love the SnapSeed app, but since Friday, I am unable to save my edited photos, takin w/iPhone, but transferred via Cloud to my iPad! What happened? Went to help and support, but no answer found. Photos much easier to edit on iPad, since images are larger. Now the save option is gone. When I tried the Export option, it says “photo can not be saved”! PLEASE fix this! I edit every photo I keep, so need this resolved ASAP! FYI, I have NOT yet installed the recent iPhone/IPad software update, so that didn’t cause it! HELP!!!!
Fantastic Photo Editor... with a few bugs
by Tycho Shea on 2020/01/04 20:20
I’ve used this app for nearly four years and love how powerful it is for such a small app. Lots of options for tweaking and corrections photos to bring out the best in them. My only caveat is in regards to the healing option. It tends to appear as a clean image in the editor but upon exporting will insert other elements around the photo from where the healing was attempted. This usually results in my simply having to screenshot the picture from within the app in order to obtain the image I want. If that was fixed, this would hands down be the best photo app on the market
RAW Compatibility UPDATE NEEDED
by RoshuaJogers on 2018/06/13 19:33
RAW support for cameras that are 2 years old needs to be added. Sony has multiple new generations of cameras that have been out for more than a year that are not supported per the Snapseed site. Please add asap. Previous feedback still applies: ____________________ Snapseed is a great app for editing photos, but the picker interface could use some serious improvement. Limiting users to scrolling through images rather than seeing a grid of image from the photo library or camera roll is limiting to say the least. If a user wants to edit a photo taken 400 photos ago, then there is quite a lot of swiping that needs to be done in the current interface design. Next, knowing what photos have been edited after stepping away from the app or when editing multiple photos is not easy either. It would be a huge improvement if in the photo picker there was some icon or symbol in one of the corners of the preview that indicated that it had been edited. Please improve these things and the app will be even better than it is now.
R.I.P. Nik Software x Snapseed
by The Wilde Disciple on 2021/02/20 07:15
I remember when Nik Software started to make waves in the photography community and sure enough like the beginnings of all good stories, they get acquired for a handsome sum by Google. All is well in the lands. Nik maintains autonomy until one dark day when their technology is finally partially assimilated into Google Photos. And while a celebratory moment when Nik Software was free for the masses (I had paid versions that were a gift so that says something), that sun would set when Google decided to drop support and halt development. And so the story goes, another one bites the dust. Its life cut short due to another cycle and another iteration of Google’s never ending Beta test on all good things fun. RIP Snapseed.
Great, Easier than PhotoShop and LightRoom but...
by SgtGrn on 2018/10/08 04:59
Love this program. I have PS and LR on my iPad and iPhone. But this is program is easier and more intuitive than either of those. It’s now my goto exposure adjustment. But.. I wish they would expand the brush capabilities. I wish I could selectively apply every effect with the brush tool. I wish I could apply color, paint and draw with the brush tool. I wish the brush too could be sized incrementally. And exposure should be in increments of .1 and we need a knife tool for mask selection for those of us with apple-pens. Hey Google offer all that and I’d be ready to PAAAAYYY.
Hate the new look
by cjindy on 2017/10/07 22:55
Why do all you developers have to keep fixing what isn't broken???!!! I loved this app when I got it and had all the settings down pat. I also like the flow of where everything was. Now it's all different and I have to learn it all over again. I understand adding features but this looks like a completely different app. The white background is terrible. Black or dark grey would be so much better, you know like it used to be. It would also be helpful to be able to save a series of edits like your “last edit” option in Looks but be able to come back to those saved option later after editing a different set of options.
Great app...just one thing
by jondoe01 on 2019/07/30 00:21
I’ve recently downloaded Snapseed and its a fantastic app. Really great and versatile. Problem is, with my iPhone XS Max, the sliding control used to adjust tools appears so far near the top of my screen that it really isn’t all that user friendly. Swiping so high up can drop down menus and such, which then cover the photo I’m editing. Happens a lot. I’ve already tried replacing the tempered glass protector because that really interfered with the swipe. The new one is as high up as I can get it. I’m thinking I may have to ditch my phone cover (otter box), but I spend too much time outdoors to not have a good protective case. Please tell me this is a fix you’ll be making?
One small problem
by LoreWhite on 2018/08/28 17:25
I’ve had this problem ever since getting iCloud storage, so maybe it isn’t a problem with the app itself. Somehow it isn’t communicating with the cloud so everyday after I spend hours editing my photos, they get updated by the iCloud library and they turn back to the original! This is getting to be ridiculous! I came up with the solution of emailing them to myself or uploading them into Dropbox, but honestly I feel like I shouldn’t have to do that! Ugh! This is so frustrating having to re-edit a bunch of pictures I just spent 2 hours on!
Blown Away
by GunslingerDust on 2018/03/16 14:12
Up until yesterday, I had never heard of this app. Then, when researching ways to take better photos with my iPhone, one of the articles I read mentioned this little gem. Honestly, after only one day, I’m super impressed. I’ve already edited a dozen photos and I’m happy with every one of them. Tl;dr: the app is great. Here’s why: Super easy to use. Pick a tool, edit photo, save and export. Tons of features. I think there’s a paid version but I haven’t needed it (sorry Google). This version is great. Export as a finished photo or for editing later. You can come back to previous photos later on if you need to make further changes. Useful for quick and clean edits, whether your keeping the photo or posting to social media. Conclusion: I’m not sure if this is for professional photographers or not, but for the average person that needs to clean up and image before posting, this’ll most likely get the job done.
Again Apple ruins a perfect app!
by Bernardo Rosado on 2019/12/28 21:55
This is a magnificent photo editing app, very powerful and intuitive, with lots of features and real working filters and on top of all, completely free! No bothersome “in app purchases” but, as it is to be expected the brainless geniuses at Apple don’t give it full support, forcing you to import your photographs directly from your iPhoto libraries, rendering the whole “files” fiasco useless. It is truly amazing that a thousand dollar tablet can’t implement a simple file management app to let you use any directory or external device confidently and reliably.
Updated Review v2
by sarasarasarAAA on 2018/04/14 23:04
Update: Snapseed has become my most used photo editing app. Love the interface and the subtle but powerful tools. What this app does I used to have separate apps for. Once you play around and get the hang of it, it will (probably) become the only app of this kind you will need. Recommended. Older: After using it more, I like this app more and more. And I'm pretty hesitant about free apps. It is full of features though, and doesn't bother you with ads or filter packs. It's better than many other photo editing apps I have used.
Love it!!
by amberwings on 2019/04/13 17:06
For a free app i absolutely love it!! It has many options to choose from to make your pictures look professional. However, for inexperienced photographers, like myself, some tinkering around the app would be required before fully experiencing it, as it is a tiny bit overwhelming. I have no complaints about this app. I feel that this app does just about the same as if you would get from a paid software. I have been using snapseed for a few years now and will always be my go to app for touch ups.
Disappointing "Upgrade" to an Old favorite
by Pierre Wilson on 2017/10/31 15:50
Snapseed has long been my go to photo editing app. Sad to see it fall victim to the endless homogenizing of photo apps. There's a reason I used this app and not instagram to edit photos. It was far superior. Now it looks a lot like instagram, only worse! Disappointing, though sadly unsurprising. If I was downloading this app for the first time in its current version there'd be a 95% chance I'd delete it immediately based on the awful UI alone (which of course used to be a strength of this app). I suppose I'll give it a few more tries since I know it can still produce the edits I want, but if it continues to take twice as long to get the same results I'll be looking elsewhere very soon.
Love this app!
by jz4467 on 2019/10/03 11:48
Looks like this latest update fixed the compatibility issues with the iPhone 11 Pro and iOS 13! Thanks guys! Only thing I noticed was that the description of what the latest software update changes in the app doesn’t appear to have been modified to properly reflect those changes (looks like last year’s description). More specifically, it still references last year’s Apple iPhone and iPad model updates and last year’s iOS software (12, rather than 13). Just thought I’d let the devs know!
My essential editing app
by jayemgee on 2019/01/19 01:18
This is the app I start with every single time I edit a photo (and it’s often the only app I use). The range of options is amazing, yet they’re all very easy to use. The ability to go back through your edits and tweak them is a great feature, as is the ability to save an editable version of your work in case you change your mind later. I also appreciate that it’s not full of offers to buy add-ons; I hate that in other apps. For all-around photo editing, this is a must-have.
