Hey Mi Fans!
We've mentioned the fabulous Snapseed a couple of times over the last few weeks, but this time we'll have look at what you can do with it if you are into portrait photography.
Snapseed, from our good friends at Google, has many tools to work with portraits. Take the following photo, for example:
Let's see what can be done with it using Snapseed.
Here you can choose 1 of 9 pre-made filters. You can adjust the correction of light and shade, smoothing the skin and lightening the eyes.
You can also change the shade of the face - make it paler or darker.

What can be configured here:
Also, when processing portraits, you can use the Brush tool: to lighten or darken the face or other areas of the photo.
Save photos to Snapseed
After you've put the final touches to your portrait, it's time to save the processed photo. To do this, on the main screen go to the Export menu. Snapseed has several options for saving:
With simple saving, the program will write the image on top of the original one. Saving a copy, will allow you to make a copy (in the Snapseed folder) and leave the original intact. In both cases, the history of changes is also saved, and the newly opened file can be “rolled back” into several filters. And when you export, you get a simple JPEG without layers.
Snapseed is a powerful editor for Android devices. With it, you can handle photos of any style and format: from landscape to portrait. And the ability to save your own sets of filters and correction parameters is useful to those who follow a single visual concept of their photos.
The best thing to do, is simply give it a try. Have a play around and see what happens. If you save to the snapseed folder, your original image will remain untouched, so you can always have another go.
Whatever happens, tell us what you think.
Well, that's enough from me for now, so until next time.
Special thanks to our very good friend Jillzy
