  • Usefulness
  • Presentation

To borrow a quote from their description, “the only photo app you’ll want to use every day”. Here is our review of this amazing photography iPad app – Snapseed:


  • Crop using the edges of the grid; align it to your preferred image.
  • Pretty straightforward and remarkably simple to use.
  • Presentation is done nicely. You can effortlessly navigate to the features of this application in a breeze.
  • Take a picture or choose from the camera roll. Select your desired tweak or enhancement, enjoy the post processed photo. You can share it directly on the application via Flickr or Facebook. You can even mail it with it’s original resolution or print the photo using AirPrint.
  • Modify your image with ease, by just swiping the image up and down you can select to adjust the brightness, ambiance, contrast, saturation and white balance of your picture, sliding left and right will adjust the selected effect.
  • Compare the post processed photograph to the default image with just a press of a button.
  • Selective adjust by just picking the part of the image you want to edit in the picture. Adjust its brightness, contrast and saturation to deliver the portrait that you want.
  • In a hurry? Try Auto-correct and it will edit the image with adjustable color correction and contrast correction.
  • Various creative enhancements such as Black and White, Drama, Vintage Films, Grunge, Organic Frames and Center Focus
  • My personal favorite would be Center Focus wherein you can spotlight the best part of your picture or the part you want the people to pay attention to.

Pros: Different enhancements, make beautiful photos in a few clicks, undo-redo button, preview button, social sharing – upload directly to Facebook or Flickr, readable RAW files, center focus.

Cons: It should add more enhancements, no Twitter support

Bottomline: Crop, rotate, focus, adjust and apply different enhancements. Snapseed is a photo application that can do anything in just a snap.
