New Snapseed delivers RAW, Face filter, White Balance, Perspective, and more

I’m delighted to say that Snapseed now supports raw image editing on both iOS & Android:

The new RAW tool opens automatically when Snapseed detects a RAW file and works seamlessly with other Snapseed tools, such as Healing, Brushes, Frames, Text, HDR, and Details. Editing changes can be saved non-destructively, or exported as JPG in high quality. Some of the available adjustments for RAW include Structure, Tint, Shadow control, Exposure (-4.0 to 4.0 f-stops), and Temperature (1.700°K to over 8.000°K). Anyone using Snapseed 2.9 and an Apple USB SD card photo adapter or WiFi SD card can now work with RAW images. 

Here’s a RAW-vs.-JPEG comparison:

 Meanwhile the new Face filter lets you brighten faces, smooth skin, and make eyes pop.

Want more? Okay, here’s more:

Also on Android: new Perspective and White Balance tools. Perspective straightens lines in your image by removing the perspective effect from the original image. White Balance offers fine color balance control with pinpoint precision via an eye dropper tool.

Lastly, you now have greater control over image saving:

In addition to UI improvements and bug fixes on both Android and iOS, you can now set the preferred JPG compression rate, or even save lossless (PNG) when exporting.

Enjoy, and as always, please let us know what you think!

  1. Please add raw support for the Sony A6300. This is a very popular camera and i am sure many other photographers are equally disappointed. The new develop fewtures work very well on Sony A6000 .arw photos.

    Thanks for listening

  2. The face filter is a winner! The results look great from what I’ve produced so far. Mature subjects will particularly appreciate it.
