My favorite App for photos on the go – by Pam Richards

My trip to Newfoundland was great, but I’m still processing 2788 RAW photos. In the meantime, I can still tell the story of my trip through my iPhone shots. My tool for editing them on the road was the Google product Snapseed.  This app is non destructive and preserves all steps automatically.  Its also dead easy to use. Totally intuitive. Tool & filter effects are chosen by dragging your finger up or down. Strengthen or weaken an effect by dragging your finger left or right.

You can use tune, details, crop, rotate, transform, brush, selective, spot repair & vingnette. Then there are the filters. No in app purchases or sign in required like some apps. (I’m looking at you PS Express). Choose from lens blur, glamour glow, tonal contrast, HDR scape, drama, grunge, grainy film, vintage, retrolux, noir, black & white, & frames.  

That said, the best way to illustrate the power of the app is to peel back the layers of a finished photo.   

I’m always looking for the newest innovation.  Any cool photo apps?  Let me know through flickr.  Username lyta1138.
