Previously on Snapseed
Released on iOS back in June 2011, Snapseed offers photo-editing capabilities comparable to professional software normally supported on desktop.
Just this April, it was updated to version 2.0 with stacks for re-editing images, support for copying edits from one image to another, new filters, brush tools, a spot repair function, and perspective adjustment.
Then, just last month, it was updated to version 2.1 with some navigation enhancements, including a new image picker offering quick access to the camera roll, app state preservation across sessions, and more.
Now on Snapseed
Now, Snapseed 2.2 is here with more improvements.
Perhaps most notable among them is the added support for 3D Touch, Apple’s pressure-sensitive multitouch technology currently available on iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus. With the latest version of Snapseed, you can now press down on the app’s icon on the home screen of your iPhone 6s or iPhone 6s Plus to access quick shortcuts.
These shortcuts let you get started with editing a new image in Snapseed. With 3D Touch, you can instantly open an image from your device, shoot a new photo with the camera, open the latest image in your device, or paste the image from your device’s clipboard.
Snapseed 2.2 also features optimization for the big screen of the iPad Pro, Apple’s largest tablet yet.
Moreover, the update improves the app so that filter styles now default to the last applied style, and known bugs and stability issues are now resolved.
Compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad running iOS 8.0 or later, Snapseed is available on the App Store for free.
I often use Snapseed to edit photos before I post them on Instagram. So I’m only to glad to see more and more improvements to the app, helping it better compete with newer photo-editing apps such as VSCO and Aviary.
