Google-owned Snapseed is considered one of the best image-editing apps for mobile devices, and has, in the past, yielded much acclaim from the folks at Apple. Sure, this was before said app was acquired by one of its fiercest rivals, but the fact that both Google and the Mac maker rate Snapseed so highly is a testament to its quality and feature-set. Today, Google has taken the wraps off Snapseed version 2.0 for iOS and Android, bundling in a decent array of new features and fixes. Full details, as well as that all-important download link, can be seen below.
Snapseed has long touted itself as a pro-level photo editor, and while it’s still arguable that no mobile app offers quite the robust tool sets of Photoshop et al do at desktop level, it’s perhaps the closest there is to a comprehensive image-modding app for iOS and Android.
Today, Snapseed 2.0 has arrived at the App Store and Play Store, and as implied by the version number, is packed to the rafters with enhancements. The Stacks feature lets you re-edit any image you’re not happy with, and you can now copy your edits from one image to another.
Filters are a mainstay in the image-editing world these days, and Snapseed 2.0 comes through an obligatory selection of new filters including Lens Blur, Tonal Contrast and Glamour Glow. There are also new brush tools for fine-tuning effects on different sections of an image, and Spot Repair will let you get right down to the tiniest details, ensuring a close-to-perfect finished product.
Indeed, Snapseed itself feels quite close to being a finished product nowadays, and while there’s always going to be room for improvements, you’re unlikely to find a better image editor for your iOS or Android device.
The best thing about Snapseed – aside from its endless list of great features – is that it’s completely free of charge, and if you’d like to check out the new version, the direct App Store and Play Store links are provided below.
