Love this app and use it all the time HOWEVER!!!! After the April update the save location is no longer a separate folder and the is now incorporated into the regular camera folder. This is extremely difficult when you edit large amounts of work and then attempt to transfer into an album of edited work. I have sent multiple emails to tech support through Snapseed with zero response. Very disappointed in the fact this is not being addressed. Otherwise, the program itself is fantastic!!!

File save location is terrible after April 2023 update. As others have noted, the default save location in previous versions kept all snapseed photos is a separate folder which made them easy to find in Google photos. Now, they just get buried in with all the other photos in the DCIM and are extremely difficult to find. The only work around is to use the "export as" function and navigate to the old snapseed folder. Please put it back to the way it has been working well for all of us for YEARS!

It looks simple but this app top notch. My go-to edits: Ambience, Structure, Perspective (free), Brush (saturation) Lens Blur, and Vignette. Not to say the rest aren't as interesting, I just haven't even dove into those yet. If I were to request anything off the top of my head, I would love to see the addition of Vibrance in the Brushes, and, or, the Tune Image section. One complaint, I've never been able to use the Double exposure. It causes the app to freeze. SS. G s-10 phone
