Google’s Photo Editing App Receives A Much Desiderated Update
Google has released first major update for its 2012 acquired all-purpose photo editing app Snapseed with a new logo. The update is likely to bring Google’s Instagram rival’s competency on par with other advanced photo editing apps.
Along with new logo, the app’s interface has also been refreshed. With the new design, you find two kinds histogram under snaps while the editing tools and filters are covered by floating action button.
“The new Snapseed app gives you the precision and control of professional photo editing software on your phone or tablet,” says creator of Snapseed Nils Kokemohr in a Google+ post on April 9.
A new “stacks” feature is added which lets you count number of edits you make. In order to use the feature, you just have to click on the small number shown at the upper right corner. If you want to see the whole collection of editing tools, you have to just click on the plus sign enclosed in a circle.
Two other new features are Perspective Transform and Spot Healing. Moreover, two new filters, Lens Blur and Tonal Contrast, have also been included in the update.
The update was indeed a much-needed one for Snapseed as it has been through a rapid decline in its popularity since 2011 after winning Apple’s iPad App Of The Year award. Couple of other photo editing apps such as Instagram, Darkroom and Pixelmator have surpassed it in recent past years.
The app can be downloaded on iOS and Android for free.
