Google’s Snapseed, the excellent free photo editing application. The app received its first major update since Google purchased developer Nik Software back in 2012.

SnapseedSnapseed Version 2.0, which is now the current version, arrived in the Play Store with a brand new user interface and a huge collection of new features, most notably including spot healing, lens blur effects, perspective transformation, and a non-destructive editing system that can copy edits from one image to another.

The new app has been refreshed with a minimalist UI with Material Design influence on Android. You can now perfect your photo on your Android smartphone with the power and control of professional photo editing software, previously only available on the desktop. Now with the tap of a finger you can retouch, adjust perspective, re-edit, and more.

Snapseed’s unique ability to selectively fix small parts of photos — such as improving the brightness level of one dark face in an otherwise bright image — has kept it relevant as a key photo editing tool for years. Snapseed 2.0 expands upon that feature, letting you apply filters and brushes selectively with a brush tool. You can also go into individual layers and make adjustments to changes that were previously applied during the editing process.

Here are just a few of the things you can do with the Snapseed App.

  • Tune image – use to auto adjust for instant fixes, use Ambience to create depth and vibrancy that uniquely adapts to colors and fine tune brightness, saturation, contrast, and more
  • Details – enhance details with traditional sharpening or the unique Structure control that makes a photo’s subject pop
  • Crop – crop images to standard aspect ratios or free crop
  • Rotate – easily rotate 90°, straighten or free rotate how you like
  • Transform – adjust perspective across vertical and horizontal axes, then fill in empty areas after rotation
  • Brush – selectively apply effects to regions of an image
  • Selective adjust – make precise selections and enhancements to specific areas of your photos in seconds with Nik Software’s revolutionary U Point technology
  • Spot repair – remove dust and dirt from the image without leaving a trace
  • Vignette – adjust brightness around the the subject of an image, includes a control to freely position the effect

This application installs in Android versions 4.1 and up, and can be acquired via Google play store for free.
