[Tutorials] [Photography Team] Editing in Snapseed! Lesson - "The Brush Tool"

Hello Photography lovers,

In my last tutorial thread, I talked about  How to use "Color Splash" in Snapseed! Let's talk about 1 more simple tool in Snapseed called "Brush" and how we can use this in our pictures to enhance it further. So, let's get started!

The "Brush tool" used to adjust brightness, exposure, temperature & saturation. Using this brush tool, we can adjust the brightness, the amount of light we want, adjust the temperature of the photo in any part of the image. This comes very handily and useful sometimes.

STEP 1 - Open Snapseed and select the desired photo. Then, select "Tools" as shown in the picture below.

STEP 2 - Select the "Brush" option.

STEP 3 - You will see several options under the Brush tool.

Dodge & Burn - Makes the selected area brighter or darker

Exposure - To adjust the amount of light

Temperature - To adjust warmness or coolness in a part of the image

Saturation - To adjust the colors more vibrant or dull. (see the picture below)

Now, each option comes with a '-' or '+' option. The '-' or the down arrow will darken the image, while '+' or the up arrow will brighten it.

STEP 4 - Next, after selecting the desired option, use your finger to brush over the part to adjust.

STEP 5 - When you are done, click the "Done" button (top left side)

That's it! You can see the difference. I kept the background (the tree) as dark to get the focus on the subject.

Here is another example:

I hope you all like it!
