Hello, Mi Fans!

We continue training in work with Snapseed

If you haven't seen the previous thread, please welcome and check it out!

Selective image correction
           In Snapseed, you can make the correction ofindividual fragments of the image. Brighten or darken, adjust the contrast andsaturation. To use this feature, go to Tools → Optional.

          Click on the plus sign at the bottom of the screen,and then tap the area you want to edit. A reference point will be placed on it. Spread or pinch two fingers on the screen. A red circle appears - so you canincrease or decrease the size of the fragment you want to edit.

           Swipe up or down to select the option you want.After that, drag your finger horizontally to adjust the intensity of theparameter.  Swipe up / down and right /left is a typical way to control parameters for Snapseed. Try them in differenttools when you do not know what to do.
What else can you do with this tool:
           Correctseveral fragments in the photo. To do this, after adjusting the parameters ofone fragment, click on the plus sign at the bottom of the screen and placeanother control point in another place. If you haveadded several dots to the image, one of the dots will be blue, that is, active.The rest are gray, inactive. To apply effects to the desired area, thecorresponding button must be active. If it is gray, touch it. Click on thecontrol point - it can be cut, copied or deleted. And also cancel all settings.

         Another usefulSnapseed photo editor tool. It can be used to edit images with high accuracy. Go to “Tools” →“Brush”. Here you can use 4effects:

  •      Dodge& Burn - lightening or darkening.
  •      Exposure.
  •      Temperature.
  •      Saturation.

           Using the arrows atthe bottom of the screen, you can change the transparency of the brush. You canalso select an eraser to clear the fragments already processed with a brush. In Snapseed, you canconveniently see which parts of the image have already been processed. To dothis, click on the "Apply mask" button (in the form of an eye at thebottom of the screen). Brushed places will be highlighted in red.

Crop, position and perspective

          Snapseed has fourtools for working with the size and position of a picture:

  • Cropping. Here you can resize the image arbitrarily oradjust to the specified proportions.

  • Turn. You can rotate the image by 90о, align horizontally, and mirror it.You can rotate arbitrarily, by eye
When you select thistool, the recognition algorithm is turned on: if the picture has a horizon orvertical elements that turned out slightly at an angle, Snapseed willautomatically straighten them. If you are not satisfied with this correction,double tap on the slider at the top, and the alignment will cancel.

  • Perspective. You can correct a distorted perspective, orvice versa, distort to get the original picture.

  • Expansion. Allows you to increase the size of the image.There is also a smart fill feature.

          Snapseed has quite afew cool filters. They can be found in the “Tools” tab. Here is a list of them:

  • HDR effect
  • shine soffit
  • drama,
  • vintage
  • large grain,
  • retro,
  • grunge
  • black and white
  • noir
  • Each of these filtershas a set of effects with ready-made settings. For example, going to “Tools” →“Noir”, we will see 14 ready-made filters.

Add text to a photo in Snapseed

         Snapseed offers 38text design options. Depending on the choice of style, fonts and line breakschange. Unfortunately,handwritten fonts are available only with English letters, but a variety ofoptions helps out - you will definitely pick up something interesting. Perhapsthis is the most elegant set of styles for inscriptions among all populargraphic applications.

Photo frames
          The final touch inimage processing can be a stylish frame. Snapseed has 23 frames. Some of themare available in different versions. To see all the options, click again on theframe icon, on which two arrows appeared.
