One of the staples of my mobile photo-editing Apps for a very long time has been Google’s ‘Snapseed’.

It has always had some really impressive features all in the one App. From tune-up options such as cropping and image adjustments for contrast, brightness etc. through to options for creating great effects such as tilt-shift, centre focus, HDR and frames. It has always been a fab free App for photo editing and touch- up.

Just when you thought it couldn’t get much better, it has.

It’s had its own refresh with a new icon and new user interface.

Then you can choose your photo. Once you have done that, you can then choose from a variety of options from two main types. Image touch up or image effects:

 

The results are quite stunning. Check these before and after shots…
