Hello Photography Fans,

In my last Snapseed Tutorial: Lesson- "The Brush Tool" we talked about how you can use this feature and further enhance your picture quality. Now, we will learn about another tool in Snapseed called "The Selective tool". As the name suggests, you can edit a part or a selective area to adjust the brightness, saturation, contrast, structure. Sometimes, this tool is really helpful when editing just a part of a picture. So, let's get started.

STEP 1 - Open the desired image in Snapseed and click on "Tools"

STEP 2 - Select "Selective tool" option

STEP 3 - Now, using 2 fingers, select the desired area as shown below

STEP 4 - You can see 4 options: (see the image below)


So, you can choose those options and adjust them accordingly. After that, just select DONE and you are good to go.

Here is the difference:

Another example: (See the center part of the flower)

I hope you all like it! Do try this and put your edited images in the comments below.
