Free, Sophisticated Photo Editor Snapseed Now Available For Android [Updates]

snapseed   Free, Sophisticated Photo Editor Snapseed Now Available For Android [Updates]Along with the recent unveiling of Google+ Communities, Google also announced Snapseed for Android. This free and powerful photo editor tightly integrates with Google+, but is also very useful on its own.

It features a unique interface for applying filters, in which you toggle aspects of filters by swiping up and down on the screen, and adjust their intensity by sliding horizontally. It sounds cumbersome, but in use it’s quite intuitive, and the results are certainly beautiful.

While Snapseed lacks portrait adjustment tools (such as red-eye fixes and red-eye removal), its other adjustment features are more fine-grained than those of many competing apps such as Instagram. In addition to controlling the intensity of each filter, Snapseed makes it possible to apply filters selectively, so that you can darken or lighten one area of an image. Limited screen area (especially when using it on a smartphone) keeps Snapseed from becoming a true Photoshop competitor, but as far as mobile image editors go, Snapseed is one of the most powerful options available today – and being free doesn’t hurt, either.

To get a better idea of what Snapseed can do, you can head over to its official site and watch an intro video showcasing its innovative interface and powerful filters.
