Last month we looked at Topaz Studio, creative photography software for use on desktop/laptop computers. This month, we’re looking at Snapseed, a creative photography app for mobile devices.

Snapseed allows the user to save and share your favourite photos and edit photos using the 29 inbuilt photo tuning tools and filters including Healing, Brushes, Structure, High Dynamic Range filters and many more. You can also crop and rotate photos and straighten crooked horizons.

For the more advanced photographers, Snapseed also features pro-level editing tools such as Curves and White Balance. Unlike many other apps, Snapseed opens JPG and RAW files (some late model digital cameras now take photos in the RAW format).

You can save your favourite effects to apply to other photos and all filter styles can be adjusted with precise yet easy to use slider controls. For those who need a bit of help with your editing, Snapseed comes with built-in tutorial cards to help you use the app and get more out of your photography.

Installed on your smartphone or Android tablet, Snapseed allows you to edit and share your photos on the go and is one of the best mobile photo editing apps around. It is available to download for devices on both IOS (App Store) and Android (Google Play) and best of all, it’s FREE!
