The best photo editor on iOS


I really love snapseed. I was the creator of one of the first blogs on iPhone photography & have tested hundreds of photo apps but this is my go to app every time even after all this time. But the biggest features I wish for are
1) a quality noise reduction feature!!!!!!!!!!!
2) I'd like in the black and white section to have sliders to control all colour conversion. Eg magenta, yellow, nuetrals, black, white, cyan etc etc. that way I can make a black and white photo have the same pop as if it were in colour. Some times a yellow and blue can tonally look the same in black and white but in colour the yellow pops more. With selective adjustment I can make the yellow appear brighter & blue darker. The current selection of just a few preset colour filters doesn’t work well enough

5 stars if those 2 features were added

Update: Years later since I first reviewed & we still need noise reduction. I still have to go over to PS express for this feature

Great app but please support more cameras Raw files


This application is great. I have recently been testing Snapseed vs Lightroom CC and I believe Snapseed comes out on top because it has all the capabilities and functions that Lightroom currently lacks and can only be accessed in the desktop variant.

I only have one criticism, please increase your support for other cameras raw files. I have a Fujifilm x70 that I’d love to use with this program to edit raw files but unfortunately it is not currently supported. The Fuji x100t is currently supported and has the same sensor and processor as the x70...

Fantastic photo Editor by any measure ... but


I use Snapseed before uploading to Instagram every, single time #grizzlyhollen, but, please consider undo arrows in the brushes tool. The only other thing I would love is the ability to fade or mix in the the effect of the last tool with the previous step
