Still an excellent app!
When I saw the new interface, at first I "freaked-out" and was immediately thinking how to reload the previous version from my time capsule. But, instead I took a deep breath and I decided to be open and give it a go. I have just played around with it for a few minutes, but the change to the new interface was surprisingly not that difficult. Although something the app was relatively stable for many years, change is not always bad. And although things appear to have been reorganized a bit, I believe all the old adjustments are still there; just reorganized a bit different. So my initial impression so far is that Snapseed just got a facelift, not an overhaul. If you are new to the app, you will find it pretty intuitive to use. If you are a long-time user, then it may take a while to get used to the new interface, but I think you will eventually adapt - like we do to most things. This app still have a very nice blend of complex adjustments that enthusiasts and maybe even pro's need and quick-and-easy filters for the casual photographer. I am glad to see that Google is keeping it alive and fresh.
Don't change what's not broke!
I started off with NIC (the originators) editing programs on my Mac from the beginning. Excellent. Much deeper and more complete. So, I was ecstatic a few years ago when I saw the original Snapseed was put out by them for Apple devices. Many of the options of the Mac versions, but with less weight. Their best feature being the Selective Adjust. I use it on almost every picture I take worth editing, and the UI well done... But, when I saw Google's name appear on it, I feared it would be the end of its prized usage. But, was relieved they didn't change the actual editing... Sadly, it was just a matter of time. After the update, I opened it hoping to find some of the missing options, I liked from the Mac versions added. Instead, it opened to a totally different, minimal, uncreative looking app. And worse, basic parts of workflow were removed. Updates are good but not when you take one step forward and two steps back.... As most have written since this last update, I am disappointed.. for the same reasons. I will try to work with it, but I may end up abandoning it except for the Selective adjust. It may not be worth the time.
Another Google fail. Sad.
The Complaints Are Understandable...
I won't overreact and give this version a single star, but the complaints that came along with the new major version are completely understandbale and for that, I'm giving it three stars, although it used to be a 5 star app.
Users would have forigven the interface change and the necessary re-learning of the app had they understood a necessity for the change ( I don't remember anybody complaining about the old one, and this is such a departure that it can't be called an 'evolution'..) - or had there been a quick tutorial that at least walked people into using the new interface....
The new features are certainly welcome and powerful, however, new versions should NEVER come at the cost of old feature and textures. It's understandable when developers remove features to comply with Apple policy, for example, but for no good reason whatsoever? No.
I think the old interface should be released, as others have suggested, under the 'Snapseed Classic' moniker, and can be left there, with a note that it won't be updated - and the new version should continue, but with the addition of a quick tutorial (it's not quite intuitive) and the return of the missing features and textures.
I used to love this app, now I'm a bit meh...
