Make every photo extraordinary with Snapseed. Snapseed provides the precision and control of professional photo editing software, in the palm of your hand. Advanced edits that once required a desktop computer, costly software, and hours of editing work can now be done in an instant on a phone or tablet, anytime, anywhere.
Features like a non-destructive editing workflow and the ability to selectively apply edits with brushes, masks, and control points make Snapseed a mobile editor like none other. And with the intelligent perspective transform and spot healing, even a quick snapshot from a cell phone can be perfected to become a work of art.
Snapseed works with your phone camera shots as well as images from DSLRs, compact cameras, and more, on both Android and iOS platforms.
Step 1: Glamour Glow. Increase Glow as high as 100 to add an icy sheen. Ensure that Saturation and Warmth are set to zero.
Step 2: Tune Image. Increase the Highlights as high as desired to brighten the image without losing detail in the shadows. Then, decrease Saturation to about -50%, and decrease Warmth to the desired blue tone.
Step 3: Vignette. If desired, increase the Outer Brightness to achieve a frosty, foggy vignette. Brrr.

Step 1: Tune Image. Increase Ambience and Highlights as high as 100 each. Then, increase Brightness to the desired level of brightness. Some of the shadowed areas may start to appear flat or splotchy as Brightness is increased, but the next two steps should hide that.
Step 2: Glamour Glow. Set Glow to 50 or higher, and leave Saturation and Warmth at zero.
Step 3: Grainy Film. Set Grain to zero. Open the style menu and select a style. Style X03 has been applied to the image above.

Other updates include new languages, improved stability and performance, and iOS 9 compatibility.
The update will be rolling out today on Android devices through the Play Store and on iOS devices through the App Store.
See what the Healing tool can do:
First, open Glamour Glow, and bring both the Glow and Saturation sliders up up up. In this example, Glow is at +70, and Saturation is at +50.
Then, add Grainy Film. Start by selecting a style. Style L04 worked for this image, but look for a style that matches your desired color palette. Slide the Style Strength up to 100, and add the desired amount of grain.

Today is a big day for Snapseed users! Snapseed 2.1 brings RAW photo editing to your Android device.
Traditionally, shooting and editing RAW photos has been the domain of DSLR cameras and desktop software. But with the RAW capabilities that were added to Android 5 last year, RAW is now becoming important for mobile photography, too.
Snapseed now allows you to edit those RAW photos in the DNG file format right on your mobile device. You can also edit DNGs that were shot on cameras or converted from other RAW formats.
A photo in RAW format preserves all of the original data that was captured by the camera. This allows you to perform edits – such as recovering blown-out highlights – that are impossible with the more commonly used JPEG format. Check out the photos for an example of the details that RAW editing with Snapseed 2.1 can bring out in an image.
In addition to RAW editing, we have made some slight polishes throughout the app to make it easier to navigate, so give it a try!
Step 1: HDR Scape. Open the style menu and select Portrait (even though the shot is of nature, it has a cloudless sky that should remain smooth, and Portrait will maintain the smooth texture). Set the Filter Strength and Brightness to the desired level, then decrease Saturation to zero. In this image, Filter Strength is set to 100, and Brightness is set to 35.
Step 2: Tune Image. Since the image will be toned in the third step, and toning often results in a darker, flatter image, increasing the Highlights and Contrast will help keep the toned image bright and detailed. In this image, both sliders are set at about 50.
Step 3: Grainy Film. Open the style menu and select the best look for the image. In this image, L04 was applied. For a sharp look, reduce Grain to zero, and adjust Style Strength if desired.
