Snapseed makes editing pictures a snap

Edit your iPhone photos on the fly with this capable app.

Snapseed is a powerful photo-editing app for iOS that you can take with you wherever you go. Simply snap a picture using your iPhone's camera, or use one from your camera roll, and turn it into a high-quality print using the numerous editing and effects tools.

Getting started with Snapseed is easy: simply tap the Camera icon and either take a new picture, choose one from your photo library, or paste one that you have copied. The app has a ton of tools for editing the image, including Automatic and Selective Adjust, Tune Image, Straighten, Crop, Details, Black & White, and Frames. Each tool has its own little set of instructions, which usually involve swiping your fingers to the left or right, swiping up and down, and so on. Some of it takes a little bit of practice, but in no time at all, we were adjusting color contrasts and brightness and cropping our picture. We even applied a subtle frame to our final masterpiece. After all was said and done, we were not only able to save the edited picture to our library, but we also were able to easily share it on various social media channels, such as Google+, Twitter, and, of course, Facebook.

If you're looking to take your iPhone pictures to another level, Snapseed is for you. It's certainly one that we plan on keeping in our own app library. We recommend this capable photo-editing tool to all users.
