  • Add blur to selective tool! :)

    By {Oakly}
    I really love this app. I use it to tune all my photos. The selective tool is a standout feature. I’ll use it for whitening teeth and removing skin blemishes, or coloring a sky without affecting the color of the ground. The blur is something that’s not so useful because it’s defined to certain shapes. If blur was part of the selective tool set, then this app would be 5 stars.
  • Great tool but missing Fuji RAW support

    By conrad2k
    I would give it 5 stars if it could develop a Fuji RAW file, as it can with Nikon, Canin and others. If iOS supports Fuji RAW natively, why can’t Snapseed?
  • Needs a compatibility update

    By dalums
    Snapseed is my go-to image editor for iPad Pro, and I’ve tried them all. But I can’t open a raw file from my Nikon D7500. Thus the 4 star rating.
  • Awesome and Easy

    By antiboaapp
    I've never loved an app so much that I'd volunteer even a sec of my time to go rate it but, I feel grateful for this app!
  • Lame

    By lameandunhappy
    I bought this and I’d rather use Adobe Lightroom any day over this app. Used it once, and I had to immediately uninstall. Bogus. Don’t waste your time, just get Adobe Lightroom.
  • I’m in Love, I’m in Love!

    By AuntBoogie
    I have been using Snapseed for MANY years; it is the longest-reigning photo editing app in my iLife. Over the years I have tried so many photo apps that seemed promising from their description, but wound up not delivering the goods. The lone survivor of many cullings of my photo apps herd, Snapseed is tried and true! The fact that I am able to edit a photo and then Save the new edited version OVER the original version (by Allowing the app to ‘Modify’) is the reason why I fell in love with the Snapseed app. I am able to write a note or add a label on a photo and then save it without creating a new needless copy and, most importantly, without moving the photo from its original spot in my timeline. This allows my edited photos to remain alongside any untouched photos, in their originally captured order. This simple yet invaluable feature is what makes Snapseed a standout for me! I do wish we could open a chosen photo in Snapseed directly from the Photos app (either via (a) the ‘Edit’ button ‘...’ Activities, or (b) the ‘Share’ button Activities). And honestly, if you were to add a ‘TOOL’ that allows us to draw (and then move/resize/reshape/rotate) lines, arrows and maybe even squares (shapes), you would become the HOLY GRAIL of photo editing apps! I would [figuratively] shout praises of your name from the mountaintops!!! I am always excited and never disappointed when you release an update! Keep up the AMAZING work!!!
  • Best free photo editor

    By jacquelinerosalie
    Pretty much what the title says. This is a fantastic app. I’m not a photographer or anything but I run an Instagram account and this makes my photos look like they weren’t just taken on an iPhone lol. Really user friendly. Also like that my images don’t seem to have reduced quality after they’re edited/saved like in some other apps.
  • Ultimate editing app!

    By Kwistowee
    This is my go to for fixing up my photos! I use Afterlight 2 and VSCO for some small things, but I use this for almost everything I do and it is amazing!
  • Crashing Upon Saving

    By tracyzimmer
    What has happened, Snapseed? This is/was my favorite app for photo editing. In the past several days, every time I work on a photo, and click save or export, the app crashes and I lose all my work. And then I do this over and over- but now I give up. It’s frustrating. Such a waste of time. Can you please fix this bug.
  • Very Thankful for Snapseed

    By Stevenrhaz
    Wonderful program, so thankful it is free! The only request I have is for drag and drop functionality with the iPad’s Files app.
