Quick edits using snapseed app

ByKevin Simon

These images are just some quick edits,  as just testing out the Google snapseed app.  The photo editing app is free and does have some good effects that you can add the HDR one does a good job,  which I have used on these photos.  You just select the desired effect then depending on the effect slide up or down,  right to left to change the various options for that effect.

The snapseed app has the following functions: Auto Correct • Selective Adjust • Tune Image • Straighten & Rotate • Crop,  with more Creative Enhancements that include: Black & White – Get that classic Black and White look with this darkroom-inspired filter • Vintage Films – vintage color film photo from the 50’s, 60’s or 70s • Drama – Add style with a custom effect specifically tailored to your photos, ranging from subtle textures to wildly artistic effects • Grunge – Give your photos a totally unique, hip, and dingy look • Tilt-Shift – Create a narrow in-focus area designed to simulate depth of field, common in a Miniature Scene look • Details – Enhance details with traditional sharpening or the unique Structure control found in the Nik Software professional products • Center Focus – Draw attention to the subject of your photo by blurring and adjusting the brightness of the surrounding background • Frames – Add stylized borders to photos for the perfect finishing touch • Retrolux – Make your photos look truly retro with light leaks, scratches, film styles, and more.

The photos that I have used here were took while was away on holiday a few years ago in the Lake District,  just by the side of the site we was staying on, there was this dirt track and walls of these rocks. I got some photos as went for a nice relaxing walk the one afternoon,  even though was a bit overcast was a nice walk.

I run this blog & also self employed cleaning out fish ponds, but due to spinal problems not able to do as much, now started a youtube channel showing my converted Peugeot Partner micro camper also as interest in photography so now vlog about the trips and of course Lego figures out in the wild photos.
