Fantastic Review of Snapseed for iPhone & iPad at iMore

One of the easiest yet full featured photo editing apps for iPhone and iPad is Snapseed.  Snapseed allows you to adjust a photo in almost any way possible but doesn’t require that you have experience or familiarity with photo editing terms.  It is a great app and one I use regularly.

Over at iMore, Leanna Lofte posted a review yesterday of Snapseed and it covers the app in great detail.  She covers virtually every aspect of the app including the use of filters to change the look of a photo (from color to black-and-white for example) along with the huge array of tweaks and adjustments you can make to your photos.

Snapseed is a fantastic photo editor that’s powerful, yet easy to use. Snapseed is best for users who want to play around with adjustments, but who don’t understand (nor care to understand) how to use more advanced and professional tools. Snapseed makes it easy for anyone to beautifully and artistically edit their photos on their iPhone or iPad.

If you have been debating on spending the $4.99 for this universal app, give Leanna’s review a read.  I think you will find it to be a great source of information on why you should have this app on your iDevice.

Touchlook HD for iPad 2 Gives Design Professionals a Sale

Touchlook HD, a hugely successful application available for the iPhone and iPod touch, has made photo editing available and accessible to a large and varied group of users. It is with great pride that Colortive – the geniuses behind the application and its development – are now broadening the audience as well as the amount that the application is able to do, by offering the application for iPad. Even better, for a limited time, the iPad application is available for an incredible sale price of $.99.

Since its inception, the application has been able to turn any iPhone or iPod touch device into a high-tech but easily Touchlook HD Screenshotaccessible editing studio. Given any photograph and a few minutes, the user could transform their picture into a work of art. Using geometric shapes like the circle, triangle, and rectangle, and easily manipulated elements like a sliding color bar, the user can maneuver and manage any number of components in a photograph. By changing the brightness, saturation, shadow, hue, mid-tones, and even vignette controls, the user is able to not only correct, but enhance and improve the pictures that they take.

Having the opportunity to use this application on the iPad is revolutionary; while the iPhone is a great way to utilize the app, the iPad opens up a whole new world of editing potential. The sensitivity of the app is user-adjustable, and the larger surface area allows the user to increase the sensitivity, therefore increasing the varying degrees of manipulability and the exactness of the results. In more general terms, being able to see the results on a bigger screen is both more helpful, and more gratifying as well.
