Snapseed app – first look


Untitled (Memory pod 03 May 2014) copyright 2014 Douglas Stockdale

After downloading the Lomo Camera FX Free app for my Samsung 4, my PX buddy Jim McKinniss also suggested that I check out another free Samsung 4 app from Nik called Snapseed. I saw, I liked, I downloaded (my spin on an old Latin saying).

I guess that it is apropos that for my first evaluation of Snapseed I should work on my recent Memory Pod series. I was out this morning continuing to photograph the seed pods and I picked out this composition to evaluate. To learn this app I kinda pushed the FX envelop!

I am not a big fan of heavy manipulated photographs, but it has been a long time since I really tweaked an image. This may not be a final image in my project, but this was fun to play with. Since I am not making notes as I go and jumping from mode to mode, I don’t have a clue as to how I got to this final image, although I think at one point I was in the Grunge mode. I am sure as I play around with this some more, I will figure it out. And if I find that this image grows on me, I had better figure out what I did if I want to recreate the effect again!

This free Samsung 4 app is rated F for fun!
