Snapseed’s first update in 2017 started rolling out today. It includes many improvements and a brand new tool: Curves!

Curves gives you precise control over brightness levels and colors to shape the look of your photos. If you are familiar with Curves from desktop applications, you should be able to get started right away. If you are new to Curves, take a look at the many presets that come with the tool to help you stylize your photo.

We’ve also improved the face detection in our Face filter. When Snapseed fails to detect faces, you can now ask it to try harder. In the Text tool, all multiline styles now allow you to choose where to wrap lines. We’ve also improved the grain quality in Black & White.

Snapseed 2.14 started rolling out today. This update will be the last one before the holidays and includes many improvements:

Both on iOS and Android, text in the Text tool can now be easily centered vertically and horizontally. Also, we’ve refreshed the presets of the Face filter, giving more options for fast and easy enhancements.

On Android, the Perspective tool brings back the old horizontal and vertical adjustment modes that many users asked for. With this addition, Perspective lets you apply any kind of transformation and perspective adjustment you can think of.

Also on Android, you can now choose the target folder for exporting a photo, allowing you to store it on an SD card or elsewhere. To enable it, just go to the settings menu for exports.

Snapseed 2.13 started rolling out today. This version includes an improved UI for selecting and changing parameters. In addition to swiping up and down to choose parameters, you can now also tap the adjust icon on the bottom bar to bring up a tap-enabled parameter selector. The selected parameter will always be shown as a slider at the top of the screen. To adjust the parameter you can still swipe left and right anywhere on the screen as before.

On iOS, this release now also includes the dedicated White Balance tool that got launched on Android a while ago. This tool allows you to adjust the colors in your photo to look more natural. Just choose the auto correct option, or use the included color picker for fine control.

Finally, when opening raw images that have been captured with a creative setting on your camera Snapseed will now show the default raw colors. Previously the embedded color profiles sometimes limited the creative choices in editing your raw files.

Snapseed 2.12 is rolling out today on Android and iOS, with bug fixes and minor adjustments throughout. In particular, we’ve improved HDR Scape. The preview is now more consistent with the final rendered image and performance went up quite a bit too.

And did you know that Snapseed can now also be used to edit interactive photo spheres? Enjoy the view from Google’s terrace in Munich which became Snapseed’s new home a couple of weeks ago!

Android users: how is the new White Balance tool working for you? This highly-requested feature includes multiple options to quickly balance the colors in an image… manually adjust the colors using the Temperature and Tint parameters, or automatically adjust using the auto white balance button or the neutral gray color picker.

If you don't see White Balance in your current version of Snapseed, download the update from the Play Store today!

Android users: are you enjoying the all-new Perspective tool? Adjust perspective distortion intuitively with standard pinch, zoom, and drag gestures to achieve a more precise perspective correction than the old Transform. Also new in Perspective, the automatic edge healing can be turned on or off based on your preference!

If you don't see Perspective in your current version of Snapseed, download the update from the Play Store today.

With the new Face filter on both Android and iOS, draw attention to the most important features of your favorite shots - the people!

Brighten up faces while darkening the surroundings, smooth the texture of the skin while retaining an overall natural appearance, and sharpen the eyes while brightening the whites of the eyes and enhancing the irises.

Give it a try on a single face or even a group shot!

If you don't see Face on your current version of Snapseed, download the update from the Play Store or App Store today.

Snapseed 2.9 available today for Android and iOS, with RAW support on iOS

Following RAW support for Android last October, today we’re bringing full RAW support to Snapseed by rolling out the ability for the professional file format to be edited on iOS.

The new RAW tool opens automatically when Snapseed detects a RAW file and works seamlessly with other Snapseed tools, such as Healing, Brushes, Frames, Text, HDR or Details. Editing changes can be saved non-destructively, or exported as a plain JPG in high quality. Some of the available adjustments for RAW include Structure, Tint, Shadow control, Exposure (-4.0 to 4.0 f-stops), and Temperature (1.700°K to over 8.000°K). Anyone using Snapseed 2.9 and an Apple USB SD card photo adapter or WiFi SD card can now work with RAW images.

In addition to RAW support for iOS, on both iOS and Android we’re rolling out the all-new Face tool: a photographic tool that helps you bring focus to faces, smoothen skin, and add clarity to eyes.

Also on Android: new Perspective and White Balance tools. Perspective straightens lines in your image by removing the perspective effect from the original image. White Balance offers fine color balance control with pinpoint precision via an eye dropper tool.

Finally, in addition to UI improvements and bug fixes on both Android and iOS, you can now set the preferred JPG compression rate, or even save lossless (PNG) when exporting.

Look for the update to hit the Play Store and App Store today. Happy editing!
