Award winning image editing app Snapseed has received little attention since being acquired by Google in late 2012, but today the app was updated to version 1.6.0, adding a new HDR-style filter and a new Shadows slider in the Tune Image options menu that is designed to brighten dark areas of an image without washing out the lighter areas.
- The new HDR SCAPE filter brings a stunning look to your images
- A new Shadows slider in Tune Image brightens dark areas naturally
- Plus bug fixes and other small improvements
According to the release notes, Snapseed users who are running the app on iOS 5 or iOS 6 should avoid the new update, as it causes issues with saving or sharing images. The problem will be fixed in a second update, which is coming soon.
Today's Snapseed update comes alongside multiple Google+ photo enhancements that will be introduced in the near future, including full-resolution uploads and automatic photo and video editing.
