SNAPSEED IN ACTION
Here are four examples of Snapseed filters. If you’d like to see Snapseed in action, click over to our desktop Videos where you’ll get hands-on demos of the latest tips and tricks.
Tilt-Shift – Miniaturize your world.
Create the classic compressed depth of field look of a miniature set or emulate the swings and tilts of a large format camera.
CROP, ROTATE AND STRAIGHTEN
Easily crop images freely or use standard aspect ratios to remove distracting parts of your photo, and rotate or straighten photos with simple clicks. It’s all easy, fast, and effective.
DETAILS – SHARPEN YOUR PHOTO
Use either a traditional sharpening approach or the unique Structure control found in the professional Nik Software product line to enhance the details in your photo. Use the included Loupe to see details at 100% while enhancing your photo.
BLACK AND WHITE – THE CLASSIC
Give that classic Black and White look to your photos with this darkroom-inspired filter. Click to select a style, and then experiment with how grainy you want your photo to appear. Finish off by making it darker or lighter, adjusting contrast, or adding a smooth vignette for that perfectly nostalgic look.
CENTER FOCUS – GRAB THEIR ATTENTION
Draw attention to the subject of your photo by clicking on your subject and blurring the surrounding background.
ORGANIC FRAMES – THE FINISHING TOUCH
Add stylized borders to your photos by choosing a style and texture. Easily adjust the width and white space around your photo, or randomize your border with a simple click.
SHARE AND SHARE ALIKE
Use Snapseed to show off your creations, email them, or share on Facebook and more. Even print your photos on your local printer.
