Plz RT: Snapseed for Android & new iOS app released! G+ sharing, new filters, & more. All FREE. Spread the word! cot.ag/QJVDqk ^KLR
Snapseed 2.6 is rolling out today on Android and iOS, introducing two commonly-requested features:
- A Blue filter in Black and white - this creates a high contrast black and white image by pushing blue tones white and yellow tones black (check out the image for a comparison of all color filters)
- White Balance in the RAW editor on Android - use the color picker to select a neutral color in the photo for automatic corrections, or choose from 8 different presets like Tungsten, Daylight and Sunny
Other updates in 2.6:
- Added Talkback capability for Healing tool on Android - with Talkback enabled, the Healing tool will announce where the patch is being applied
- Fixed a crash on iOS when flipping images under specific conditions
- Minor bug fixes
Snapseed 2.9 available today for Android and iOS, with RAW support on iOS!
Following RAW support for Android last October, today we’re bringing full RAW support to Snapseed by rolling out the ability for the professional file format to be edited on iOS.
The new RAW tool opens automatically when Snapseed detects a RAW file and works seamlessly with other Snapseed tools, such as Healing, Brushes, Frames, Text, HDR or Details. Editing changes can be saved non-destructively, or exported as a plain JPG in high quality. Some of the available adjustments for RAW include Structure, Tint, Shadow control, Exposure (-4.0 to 4.0 f-stops), and Temperature (1.700°K to over 8.000°K). Anyone using Snapseed 2.9 and an Apple USB SD card photo adapter or WiFi SD card can now work with RAW images.
In addition to RAW support for iOS, on both iOS and Android we’re rolling out the all-new Face tool: a photographic tool that helps you bring focus to faces, smoothen skin, and add clarity to eyes.
Also on Android: new Perspective and White Balance tools. Perspective straightens lines in your image by removing the perspective effect from the original image. White Balance offers fine color balance control with pinpoint precision via an eye dropper tool.
Finally, in addition to UI improvements and bug fixes on both Android and iOS, you can now set the preferred JPG compression rate, or even save lossless (PNG) when exporting.
Look for the update to hit the Play Store and App Store today. Happy editing!

Rolling out today on Android and iOS: Text! Snapseed 2.8 includes the new Text filter with tons of font styles and colors to choose from. The style options are endless with the ability to invert the text, change the opacity, or even use the Text filter in combination with the stack brush to create one-of-a-kind designs.
Also included in the 2.8 update is the ability to configure Snapseed to resize photos when sharing or exporting, as well as various UI adjustments and bug fixes. Watch for the update in the Play Store and App Store.
Adding a warm tone can be a beautiful, subtle enhancement to an image... but what is the best way to apply it without making the image look orange?
Three sliders in Tune Image:
1. Saturation - reduce Saturation to about -30 to avoid hues that are too bright
2. Warmth - increase Warmth to the desired effect, anywhere between 30 and 100
3. Highlights - increase Highlights as high as needed to bring back the white tones that were lost with the Warmth slider
