    Dear Google, first of all understand the fact that your snapseed is a success because it is good in tuning an image in a fraction of a second. Professional photographers use this for this advantage of snapseed. Now you have brought filters to the front row and messed up the arrangement of the tuning tools area. Your engineers' quick action in coming up with a solution will help you retain customers or else people will start searching for alternatives. Your idea of bringing new look is much appreciated but definitely this is not the right one. Your loyal customer Full Review

    Re-installed the app because finally - more storage! But so so dissapointed in the new look. Couldn't believe my eyes 💔 It was so refreshing having a layout that was different from all the others; innovative, exciting, unique amongst many.. Cant explain how basic i5 feels now using it. Design team really doesn't do it justice. Full Review

    One of the best free editing apps in the market. However, I was left wanting for the following things: 1. Whenever I use filters like HDR Scape, I induces a lot of grains into the picture and it can be made better. 2. The pre set filters (especially BnW ones) can have more options and control over filter strength 3. There is no 'fade' option. So if I have to use it I need to do it separately on Instagram before posting. 4. The controls for anything can be made for precise and graduated and more parameters can be added to the 'brush' option These are little niggles I noticed, which if taken care of, will make this "the best editing app".

    I absolutely adore this app. It takes photos to another level. The features are great and has much of what I need. I have been using it for a year and 4 months now. The portrait and head pose has a hard time with side profiles of a face, even when the face is clear. If the app had an actual paint brush with tester that would be great. As well as a color splash feature. Otherwise it's an awesome app. Full Review

    Oh dear. Where do I even start? This is my first ever review for an app. I almost feel forced into reviewing this and it's not a great one. I used to LOVE this app. It's now ruined with it's new design and layout of tools. It used to look amazing and had an ease of use about it. I really don't want to move to another app but I feel like I may just have to. 2 stars. (Would have been 5 previously). Full Review

    Previously I gave 5 stars to this app. But now I take back two of them because of the new interface. I don't undrestand why they changed the interface from something unique and beautiful to some boaring stupid interface. Beside I can not open raw images in this app as it suppose to do. Here is my previous review which still valids: This app is very powerful and yet easy to use. They're some features that might missing, for example it would be nice to have curve tool. However, it's already has many cool features. Full Review

    Hi Snapseed team! Thank you for this wonderful app. I never complained even with the  new UI. It's still the best photo editing app.  Just an observation tough. The export button on the homepage of snapseed app is not present when I open the app through browsing the  picture first. Meaning to say, I open a pic, then long press to open it with snapseed, then edit. There is no export button there. But if I open the snapseed app first, open a pic, the export button is present.  Not only that, the option "open a pic first, then long press to open with snapseed" saves the image in a much lower quality even if I previously chose 100% JPEG in the settings. I don't know why. Is this a bug or something else? Anyway, thank you so much for this app. Full Review

    Initially, I gave 5 stars. Now only 3. I'm using this app for many years. The very first thing that attracted me to this app was it's design. But now it was changed. Please bring back the old design! Yeah the current version has new features. That's good but update them with the old design. The older one was so unique and better. Full Review

    Yup. All the reviews are true. This is amazing. All the tools that i use on Photoshop are literally on my finger tips now. For people like us who find joy in enhancing a picture it's the perfect mobile app. People i referred it to are still wary because of the number of settings one can play with but for those who have worked with PS will find this the ultimate answer on one's phone. Job well done developers & Google. 👍 keep them coming. The new update UI is not pleasing to the eyes at all. It gives a vibe of Instagram, why would you change such a nice setup. Not happy at all.

    I love it! With the ability to do curves, and the ability paint masks for filters, it does everything I need from a photo editor 99% of the time. And I love the UI! The layer painting tool could be a little more accessible though, and could have a slider to choose the brush value (now it goes in increments of 25% which is too harsh in some cases.) P.s. Why no emoji support in the trxt tool? Full Review

    The mobile editing app version of Photoshop! It really is like PS but easier to use!!! Has a lot of tools to explore. And even though you used a lot of tools or made too much editing, the picture will still be in good quality or even better! Although, I'm not happy with the look of the new update. It's kinda confusing. Full Review

    Marcus Tucker Published date: October 11, 2017

    Best Android image editing app I've ever used and was previously 60% awesome, now 80% awesome (has recently been improved) BUT a major missing feature is a controllable noise reduction filter (mostly for skin smoothing, though also for other surfaces, glamour glow is lovely but not the same and doesn't really remove noise). Also it's missing a way to composite a watermark (e.g logo image) onto images. For these reasons it gets 4 stars instead of 5. Full Review

    Great app for enhancing pictures, really easy to use and quite powerful. It hasn't really updated or added any features in a really long time, wonder if the app has been abandoned. But why would remove support for png for double exposure? That was the only way of adding watermarks and now you took it away... Full Review

    Jorge Olvera Published date: February 8, 2018

    Used to love this app. I still believe is one of the best out there. The reason I am giving it 2 stars is because I feel is loosing the easiness in its controls, less intuitive,but I can live with that. However, I can't believe that being a Google product it doesn't work with my Pyxel 2. Every time I try to make a change in perspective it closes and it has been like this for a while. I hope they make the necessary changes. Full Review

    This is really crazy, this one kicked out all other editing apps of my phone. The powerful photo editing app with the simplest ui. Offers so many tools, filters to retouch your image. One can think as mini photoshop for quick edits. All the pro app features in a full free app. Hats off Google!! One star deducted because I miss the ability of free hand drawing and pixel resizing.

    Come on Google. With new interface you slowed down my workflow so much. White background is a killer. I understand that you wanted to make an app more appealing to total newbies, but there is zillion apps that already do that with filters. Most of us use Snapseed because of its advanced features. Please rethink the design. Full Review

    The interface was great as it was, why change it. But a bigger issue... HOW DO YOU SAVE/LOAD A "LOOK" NOW! I've searched, and now it seems that you can only save the looks via QR code. I really wish I could roll back to the old version. Maybe I'll see if I can find another device and pull the apk... Full Review

    What an eyesore. The older version of the app had a much more intuitive and much less cluttered design. I also cannot believe that the background is light gray/off white without any option to change it. The darker color of the old app was definitely better. There's a reason most professional photo editing software have dark interfaces. Full Review

    MOTE Published date: October 8, 2017

    I am really liking and enjoying Snapseed! Snapseed is my go-to app when editing pictures. But I am not sure I am enjoying this new update. Switching in between the before and after when editing the picture is a lot more slower than before, and the pull up menu makes the editing layout look more messier, in my opinion. I feel that those are the main two things that I am not enjoying with this app, but they are definitely not going to stop from using this app! Other than that, from what I notice, everything else is good and is the same old great app I like to edit photos with! I like the new option to edit raw photos in Snapseed. To me, it increases the professional-ness of the app! Overall, I really like this app ans enjoy using it! If those minor things can be fixed, this app would be even more awesome than it already is!

    go to app for mobile editing, especially with dng (raw) editing from my LG G5. Perfect for editing photos for social media consumption. My main request is for some form of noise and distortion editing for RAW files. Were these features to be added, it would be a viable lightroom replacement for light-to-moderate photo editing on my Chromebook. Thanks! Full Review

    Awful new design. I don't want a dumbed down ios 11 version of this app. It was a powerful and amazing photo editor that I have recommended to everyone. It completely replaced Photoshop for me and worked perfectly with my Fuji x camera. Please give Android users the ability to return to previous version. The white background SUCKS! Full Review

    Jupiter Day Published date: September 29, 2017

    I had written a very harsh review of this app because they had change the interface that I was very fond of. But since that change I've come to realize how indispensable this app is if you do digital art or just want to restore an old photo for a friend. Leave it to Google to create something so indispensable you may hate it one day but you'll fall in love. Also included if you look on YouTube are many tutorials on how each of the features work to help you get a better understanding. Enjoy. Full Review

    A great app, but I can't use the "crop" function. Whenever I try, the app automatically closes and opens CCleaner instead!!! I can switch back to Snapseed (which remains in the "crop" window) but if I touch any of the crop controls, or even move the cropping box, it switches back to CCleaner instead... Utterly bizarre and ultimately functionless, sadly. Running a totally fresh install on a OnePlus 5. Full Review

    It was so good before, quick actions you know where everything is. Dark background that actually helped you to focuses on the picture you were editing. With new layout and white interface it is so hard to edit picture when white backlight of the screen is blasting you in your eyes when trying to see small details of the picture. I had to manually downgrade to older version and not planning to upgrade it until dark interface comes back. Full Review

    I have to say - " The best photo editor" . Lot's of customization anyone can do. But I feel improvement in "Lens blur" & "Crop" options. In "Lens blur" i can't select the focus in various situation ( exp- only face in oval focus but not other body parts like shoulder ,hands or any picked object) . In "Crop" section please add a round Crop option. That's all I need right now from snapseed. Again thanks a lot for our snapseed. Full Review

    The new update has completely crippled my ability to be creative with my edits. The Snapseed team who "carefully hand picked" the new filters clearly don't use photo editors. It used to have so many amazing options to layer and work off of. I've had so many photo editing apps that I've deleted immediately, because of the limitations that you've set in this update.

    I've been using the app quite often for years now and have even compared it to Photoshop in a sense. But recently you've changed the interface and layout, and not in a good way. Also, who's 'bright' idea was it to change the background color of the app to white? Sincerely, loyal app user Full Review

    (not a big fan of the new menu UI, always on the bottom and BRIGHT WHITE, which is awful for photo editing)... But... Been using this app for a while now. I think it is one of the best editing apps mostly because of the intuitive UI. The scrolling up and down, side to side is just simple and smooth. The histogram is great, a must have. Full Review

    Really sad about the design direction taken. Instead of highlighting the powerful tools, they throw filters in your face. Other apps do filters better but no one does editing like Snapseed. Please stick to your strengths. AND FOR GOODNESS SAKE GET RID OF THAT LIGHT BACKGROUND. (P.S. does anyone know how to roll back to an earlier version, I can't use this one at all) Full Review

    I want an option to have the dark interface again. I love Snapseed but editing photos on a dark background makes them easier to look at and examine the details. I strongly dislike the updated design with white/grey background. The shift was too jarring. I immediately looked to see if I could go back to the dark background and I seriously considered looking for a different editing app. Full Review

    YOU'VE RUINED IT! This app used to have such a beautiful design and an amazing interface, which you have completely got rid of and made it white? WHY?! The design tools might be the same BUT they're harder to find and use, partially because of the white background (yes, it is a very big deal for editing). I understand that you want to make it more Instagram-like BUT this app never targeted such low-key photography but a more advanced one instead. Please reconsider the design!!! Full Review
