This is a great app for photo editing. A ton of tools, intuitive interface, plus can edit RAW photos. I would give five stars. But for some reason, the app no longer saves edited pictures into the /snapseed folder, and instead leaves them in "Photos". Which means if you have a lot of pics and are editing one from a while ago, you now have to sift through all your photos to find it. Might not sound like much, but trying to find many edited pics over multiple months is a nightmare. Please fix :(

It looks simple but this app top It looks simple bunotch. 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

Great app, got me into photography and digital editing, with lots of unique features separate from Google Photos, and tutorials (that could use an update) that teach you the basics of stylistic photo editing. My two small complaints are that I think choosing to edit a photo with Snapseed in the Google Photos edit menu should open up the actual app, and the app's icon doesn't have a themed app icon (although that feature is still in beta). Overall an amazing app that I use a lot.
