  • Adding free form focus points!!! Jul 30, 2018

    By CEOofSimp
    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!!!

    A very user friendly app and exceptionally efficient. I've been using Snapseed for quite sometime now. However, over the last one month, I've been encountering an issue, whereby I'm unable to add borders to photos using the 'EXPAND' option. This issue didn't exist earlier. Please look into the bug, it would be really helpful. Otherwise, Snapseed is my favourite photo editing app!

    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 has happened to Expand? Seems one side of the image can't be expanded anymore. Only pinch zoom to expand all sides is the only way it works. And why is there only a set amount that can be expanded, requiring multiple expands, instead of being able to increase whatever size the user wants? And Double Exposure doesn't work the same anymore, either. Can't add an image and get both the same opacity.

  • A Must-Have App For All Serious Photographers Mar 21, 2017

    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. 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.

    has a lot of cool features, but none work for what i wanted to edit pics. One was to blur license plates, but it can only be controlled with screen touch, and the controls cannot be adjusted with a control panel of sorts (would be more accurate than my fat fingers). Its also missing a feature of being able to highlight specific parts of a picture, like highlighting a row of text, or the lack of being able to draw geometric figures including free curves.

    The app used to be pretty good. But from today.. a lot many features(more than 50%) have been removed and the ones which are left are utter useless because the pics are not getting saved or exported. I may have found a way arnd the export option. Change jpeg quality.. switch the app.. n then change it back to your previous desired setting. Apparantly it worked for me. But still miss the previous list of features. Kindly restore those back.

  • From amazing to unreliable Jun 23, 2018

    By Eversoe
    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!!!!

    Google, have you messed up the recent update? Either these are missing from earlier version or I'm not able to find, either way it's not good for such a fantastic app. that it was. 1. Selective area 2. vignette 3. No frames 4. Color histogram 5. I don't use raw format in this, but it's missing 6. Blur for potrait effect 7. Crop I think it's a long list... Why would you remove features?

  1. Love the way your customized filters turned out? Save the settings for later and apply them to all of your pictures in the future
  2. Perspective function lets you adjust a photo's background so that everything is flat, straight, and appealing to the eye

  • I’m in Love, I’m in Love! Sep 12, 2018

    By AuntBoogie
    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!!!

    The finest image editing app available for free, which has lots of useful features; I personally like the "Expand" feature, along with the various other filters and adjustable options. I would like a better "Healing" performance in the center of image as it at the edges. Also, would like to have the ability to "Crop" with respect to device dimensions.

  • Best Photo Editing App Apr 22, 2019

    By katiekrl
    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!

It has healing and brush tool and it's all free. I would like to see a colour correction and colour splash function if there's anything to be added.

    This is an excellent editing app and it has grown so much in the past few years but now that google owns SNAPSEED, why cant it be completely integrated into Google Photos to make the photos editor much much much better. Just a thought, since I feel that Google photos will be MUCHHH BETTER and users will not go for any third party editors and then struggle to upload the photo again to Google Photos and so on!!

  • Avoid 2.18.2 update if you already use Snapseed. Aug 28, 2018

    By JohnTujunga
    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

  • Worked great, until it didn’t May 5, 2018

    By Adoragurl
    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.

For when I want to edit a picture, I get a reply on the app that says it doesn't support the picture or file not find, and the latest is that file doesn't exist.

  • It was great—until it wasn’t Oct 15, 2018

    By Suzanne T.
    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!

    Mostly good. Two main issues though. 1) It reduces the original image size applying some form of compression which is totally not good. 2) Frames apply to the inside of the image eating away the actual image. It should add to the outside of the image to retain the origin image. Fix these 2 things and it's a 5 star app.

  • Disappointing "Upgrade" to an Old favorite Oct 31, 2017

    By Pierre Wilson
    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.

  • Wonderful app! Jun 1, 2018

    By wellwhatnameisn'ttaken?!
    Very happy with this app. It’s fast, very easy to operate, and there are so many tools to take advantage of. I do not consider myself a professional photographer but I know a good picture when I see one and this app has helped immensely in making my amateur photos into something I’m very proud of. However, after processing many many photos through this app, I’ve found that after about a day, they revert back to the original and do not retain any of the filters or alterations I applied. Not sure why this is. If someone could offer some assistance, that would be great as I have spent much time touching up my photos and it was highly disappointing when all that work disappeared.

    By Coop20052k5
    Normally I would give the app 5 stars, but after updating to iOS 13.1.1, it’s now saying “error this photo can’t be loaded”. Not one single picture is able to be uploaded. I’ve checked permissions and is allowed to read and write photos from camera roll. The support provided has instructions that aren’t relevant. It says to go to settings, about, then restrictions (which isn’t in the menu listed). I’ve realized today that they have not left an option to contact them, letting them know there’s an issue as such. For this being a google app, I would expect a better support system in place.

    I have edited with Snapseed for years and LOVED the app recommending to everyone. I was especially thrilled when you updated to support RAW editing. But recently, the app freezes after 2 or 3 RAW file edits. Then I lose an edited image, have to close and reopen the app. Now, it’s saying edited images are “Successfully Saved” but when I go back later, the image is reverted back to original form. I just lost two days of edits. If I can’t trust the program is saving when it says it is, and I can’t trust it not to freeze when I try to save a finished image, I’ll have to switch to Photoshop Express. Please do something!

  • Snapseed continues to evolve gracefully Oct 6, 2020

    By UpRocka
    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!!!
