The work was produced via “the Memory Makers project, [which] pairs survivors of genocide with a range of artists, who are responding to their life stories by creating a work of art.”
Snapseed 2.0 is an enormous new release, and along with all the new goodness (non-destructive editing, brushing, healing, masks, new filters, etc.), a few changes have proven controversial. The team is listening (especially via the user forum) and planning improvements.
Among these, we plan to bring back the Grunge filter (not the most widely used tool—hence its removal from v2—but one with a very passionate following). We’ll also offer a way to play nicely with apps (e.g. Lightroom) that don’t yet support iOS 8’s model for non-destructive editing (see previous post). I can’t promise a specific timeframe, but stay tuned.
Thanks for all the feedback to date, and please keep it coming!

I love seeing photographers start putting this very rich update through its paces. PetaPixel writes,
Photographer Mark Ryan Sallee of Michromatic just posted this video in which he shares the top 5 new features found in Snapseed 2.0. The 14-minute video covers the bigger view, highlights slider, perspective correction, content aware fill, and edit history.
