What is Snapseed?

Snapseed is an iPhone and Android app which allows you to edit images. It's touted as one of the best photo editing tools for the sheer amount of functions available. Oh, and it's free.

What is it Used For?

To edit photos on a smart phone. Enhance your photos with preset filters, or use the advanced tools to tweak your photos just the way you want them.

How do I Use Snapseed?

It's definitely one for the more advanced photographer. Thankfully, the app comes with built in tutorials so you can get up and running, and editing pictures in no time.

Who is the Expert?

Neel Patel is a lifestyle blogger and full time biologist, so he doesn't have time to spend hours editing images on a computer, and Snapseed enables him to edit on the go.

What's Their Advice?

The use of 'Curves', this function gives you a lot more direct control of Blacks, Whites, Shadows and Highlights (really stepping up you photography game) in one key stage.

Pushing up things like shadows really bring back details lost in dark environments, and crushing highlights will bring back details when your image way way to bright.

Snapseed has easy first time user functionality, using the tab option within curves gives you insight as to how moving the line curve affects your image! When I edit on the go I try to stick to the 'S' Curve.
