Fourth months after Apple’s 2012 12 days of Christmas, I am starting to see the joys of one of their offerings. On the 7th day, iOS photo editing application, Snapseed, was free to download. At the time of download, it seemed like a fairly decent app, however, I didn’t really see the point in it as I did all my photo editing on my iMac or MacBook. The bigger screen, I find, is much more advantageous in those sort of situations compared to the smaller screen of an iOS device.
Lately, however, I have been finding that I am using Snapseed more and more often. And at times, in conjunction with other photo applications such as Instagram. Snapseed does offer a good selection of editing capabilities which can actually transform even the most average photograph into something that is worth sharing. I find that it is good for applying affects that I would normally shun on my computer in a non destructive environment. Yes they probably aren’t to everyones taste but it opens your eyes to different takes on photos.
I am aware that it does add to the argument that people have that computers narrow the gaps between professionals and amateurs, but that shouldn’t really make skills take a back seat. Anyways, here is an example from earlier of a photo edited in Snapseed.
