Snapseed Reviews


AMAZING  Thezer🌈  5 star

This app’s blemishing fixer feature is better than photoshop to be honest I use this app, “VSCO”, and “Photoshop Fix” the most! These three apps together make wonderful photos!!!!!!!!


My essential editing app  jayemgee  5 star

This is the app I start with every single time I edit a photo (and it’s often the only app I use). The range of options is amazing, yet they’re all very easy to use. The ability to go back through your edits and tweak them is a great feature, as is the ability to save an editable version of your work in case you change your mind later. I also appreciate that it’s not full of offers to buy add-ons; I hate that in other apps. For all-around photo editing, this is a must-have.


Locked up!  Salgal1970  3 star

I love this app! I have been using for almost a year. Now it keeps crashing. I use this app almost daily for my business. This needs fixed ASAP!


Photo album  robbie22384  3 star

Is anyone else having issues opening their photo album to edit? The portion where I’d select the photos/album ends up in the ‘notch’ and will not let me see any of my pictures. IPhone XSmax


Amazing!!  Musicgirl1998  5 star

The ONLY editing app I’ve ever used on my phone. Crashing issue definitely needs to be fixed, and preferably a more streamline way to access and look back at previous edits and photos. Otherwise, it’s a wonderful app.


Great editing app  crimsongold  4 star

The only problem I have with it is the “healing” tool. It does a pretty good job, but once I export the photo, it shows little pieces of whatever object I was healing/removing, but doesn’t look that way in the app.


Edits not transferring when saved  Pittsburghswo  1 star

Until recently worked great. Now will not save edits to photos. Exports them to camera roll, then when opening the picture from the camera roll none of the edits are present.


Straightening pica on iPhone XS Max  isaior  1 star

On my iPhone 7 + i could tap twice at the top where it said “Straighten Angle” and the photo will adjust to 0.0. On iPhone XS Max there is no way to straighten a pic to 0.0 anymore, no auto function for this and manually is impossible to get it to 0.0 ugh


Why No Updates Anymore?  Markarts  5 star

You have a great app Google...!!! It's possibly the best photographer app and you show no interest in continuing updating it or are you simply letting it fade away??? It's simply the best.

David O 428

Works great  David O 428  5 star

Not sure about these negative reviews. I’m using an iPhone XR and haven’t had a crash issue yet but I’m also not trying to use a free phone app to do in-depth professional photo editing. Most of you all should be good with this app. A lot of people write bad reviews when they get slightly inconvenienced but how often do they leave positive reviews? Good job with this great app, Google.


One of the best photo editing tool ever used  _Nav_  5 star

This is undoubtedly the best free photo editing tool currently in market. To the developers, App is crashing in iOS 12.1 in iPhone X while trying to open any photo. Once app is in that state, only reinstall fixes the problem. Thanks


Video Editing  Soac3dSauc3  4 star

Hello, I use snapseed literally ALL the time. And I’d really love for you to add video editing to the app because it'd make the app SO much better. Other than that; it is a great app and I recommend it to ANYONE and EVERYONE!


Masterpiece by Nik Software, destroyed by Google.  fractal_h  1 star

Used to be the best image manipulation software on iPhone. This, and other professional software by Nik was unfortunately assimilated by Google and abandoned.


Was good but its buggy now  BuffetBoy  2 star

Not compatible with the new iPhone and obviously google are not interested in an update because of sour grapes. Five months is a long time in app development without an update.


big fan.....usually  Dacocoa  1 star

usually a huge fan and lover of the app, but for the last few months the app will crash as soon as I upload a photo. have deleted and re-downloaded the app a few times, but it’s still happening. hope this can get fixed with the next update.


Used to love this app  lanaxbear  2 star

I use this app all the time but since getting the iPhone XS Max, the app keeps freezing. I’ll need to use Lightroom until the bugs are fixed.


Snapseed  CherryXxerinxX  5 star

Snapseed is the best !


Highly recommend  Nevernormallywritereviews  5 star

Hands down the best free photo editing app. Use it over photoshop for all my social media photos. One hundred percent recommend.

Perfect failure (video)

Absolutely unacceptable default 95% Jpg  Perfect failure (video)  1 star

I can absolutely annoyed that your app comes with default setting 95% jpg as the standard format! After you finally upload your pictures on Instagram you’ve already lost about half the quality! I’ve edited so many images on your app and I can’t believe they could have 5% more quality if your app didn’t compress them. Super p***** off!!! You need to have this as a push notification for people who enjoy editing high quality photos who don’t want their photos compress! Soooo annoyed right now!!!!! 😤


Snapster  snapstercaptures  5 star

I have been using this app for awhile. I find it the best app I would love it to have some more futures and I would be willing to pay, it works well 99% of the time which is great for a app.


Google: Please Fix for iPhone XS Max  Speak4Truth  2 star

This was a great app for many years but unfortunately Google bought it out for the technology and doesn't update app regularly. Now it's virtually unusable on the newest iPhones, with most recent iOS updates. It may be yet another of many examples where Google buys a great company, only to let the product die :( If you're not going to keep it alive, why not let someone else keep it going. I would be happy to pay for a regularly updated app. Please at least fix the problems. Google as a company is not looking good to consumers when they neglect their users.


Snapseed starts crashing  iphone8snapseeduser  5 star

I am not sure if it’s Snapseed fault but it just became useless on my iPhone 8. Every time I want to open “ All Photos “ on my device the app crashes. I used to love Snapseed. Post Scriptum. I had to review my previous review. Apparently it might be the latest IOS updates causing the Snapseed crash. I had the same problem when I tried to select photos to edit from my phone library with other apps too. A quick fix is to Copy your photo from your library and Paste it on Snapseed for editing. Snapseed is so powerful that’s worth the extra steps you might have to do in order to use this app.


IPhone XS MAX problem  Ganstabarber23  4 star

En la parte selectivo La aplicación se friza. Por favor arréglenlo


it does not work correctly  christian0753  1 star

I have the iPhone XS Max. and when I want to edit a photo the application freezes and I can not do anything. please fix that!

John Ilonggo

XS Max not compatible yet!  John Ilonggo  3 star

It keeps on freezing whenever I’m doing the edits. I will have to quit the app and relaunch it again. But it will freeze again.


My favorite photo app  cjones  5 star

I just love this app. I use it daily. It is simple and powerful. I’ve been using it since before Google acquired it. I pray that Google does not kill this.


Please fix for xs max  Whoadiana  1 star

It was working just fine a few days ago and now I can’t edit any photo without it freezing. Please fix ASAP as I edit photos with Snapseed every day for my work.


Crash city  TENeedham  1 star

Went from being the very best to crash city - get you act together - loving for a new app 😩😩😩😩😩😩😩😩😩😩


Freezing & Crashing on XS Max  Snellybean  2 star

This is my favorite photo editing app, but it’s been crashing constantly on my new XS Max. No matter what I do (close the app, restart the phone, reinstall the app) it freezes the entire phone & crashes. I bought this phone to edit photos more easily, but sadly I can’t do it with Snapseed anymore. Really hope they release an update ASAP.


So frustrated  mlugg54321  2 star

I’m so frustrated with the app on iPhone X keeps crashing and freezing. I’ve loved it when I have my 7 but this is just ridiculous. So bummed.


Excellent  bookmeaholidayplease  5 star

I love this app so much! Similar to photoshop, so easy to use and the design is great! Highly recommend, photos look great after it!


Texts  AljonaSnoopy  3 star

Always use this app for writing on my pictures and it was great,but after update I can’t make the texts smaller, the writing is all over my picture !


Text is messed up with latest version  Matthew.RN  3 star

I love this app so much. I use it daily to add text and effects to my posts on instagram stories. It helps them stand out so well. But lately I’ve realised with my text, it will only write on one line? In order to write in multiple lines I have to add each line in one by one which is extremely annoying and you also dont get the full effect of the font you have selected. Hope this is resolved soon

The beltsander

New update has ruined it  The beltsander  4 star

So disappointed the new update has ruined the text feature. It’s impossible to use now


Disappointed  Amze55  3 star

I've never reviewed an app but I really feel like I need to say this. The new interface is awful. I understand what's trying to be achieved, the extra features etc but the absolute best thing about snapseed was the user friendly interface. I'm a graphic designer, it's fine for me to direct myself around it's features but I have always suggested snapseed to friends boasting it as 'photoshop on your phone but much easier'. That's not the case anymore. I love snapseed but you've just alienated a huge portion of users with the lasted update.


Good!  aaronpryan  5 star

Great app!


New features are broken  Bpmd  3 star

A great app with one huge flaw. The most recent feature – RAW editing – doesn't work for any of the listed supported cameras that I own. DNG direct from the iPhone is fine and works well (though lacks any kind of noise reduction), but this seems to be the only RAW file I've had any success opening.

Unknown Girl 565

Handy and easy to use!  Unknown Girl 565  5 star

Snapseed is my favourite photo-editing app because of how simple it is to use. I like the new "Insights" feature as well. However, I think the accuracy of the Healing and Transformation settings could be improved a bit. Sometimes when correcting a few things the picture goes a bit..wonky. Maybe it's just because I'm not using it properly ;-P Awesome app nontheless.


Unable to download  Vantomwex  1 star

Since I performed the update there were issues opening the app so had to delete to reinstall but unable to install.

DJ N!tro

Still the best!  DJ N!tro  5 star

Make sure you scroll down for all the main features from the old version after updating to 2.x, people think it's all gone, but it is there, betterr than ever!
