I’ve cherished Nik Software’s Snapseed iOS photo-editing app since its discharge a year ago, and plainly others shared the conclusion—Apple granted Snapseed an iPad-app-of-the-year grant for 2011. So when Nik Software declared Snapseed for Mac, I was anxious to test it out. What I found was a Mac app with highlights that are practically indistinguishable to those of its iOS partner however with many focal points on account of the Mac stage.
The greatest contrast between the new Snapseed App for Mac and its iOS kin is the utilization of picture editing sliders in the work area adaptation. Furthermore, that is something worth being thankful for. The Mac’s mouse-pointer-centered interface is extensively unique in relation to chipping away at a touchscreen, and Nik Software has balanced Snapseed for Mac in like manner.
All things considered, Snapseed on the work area sports a similar straightforward interface as its iOS rendition. When you dispatch the app, you’ll discover the majority of the editing instruments in the toolbar to one side. To the privilege is an extensive space that trains you to “Drag a photo here to begin.” You can move from the Finder or even straight from iPhoto. It’s likewise conceivable to open a photo utilizing the File-menu direction and exploring to the ideal picture.
The editing highlights are composed in an instinctive request that is for the most part how you’d approach editing a picture. You begin with Tune Image, where you’ll discover sliders for brightness, differentiate, immersion, shadows, feel, and warmth. You can likewise browse six presets: Automatic, Neutral, Dark, Bright, Balanced, and Moody—every gives the picture a somewhat unique tone or shading, and when you click one, you’ll see the sliders move as needs be. This is likewise where you’ll discover Nik Software’s mark Control Point include, which gives you a chance to make particular alters to your photo. When you’re finished with the essential alters, you can trim and fix your photo, just as utilize the Details apparatuses, which incorporate Sharpness and Structure. From that point forward, it’s about the channels and embellishments.
Snapseed’s strong point is those channels and enhancements. The app’s Creative Adjustments are sorted out into seven classes: Black and White, Drama, Grunge, Vintage, Frames, Center Focus, and Tilt-Shift. You’ll discover channels in the initial four classes; every ha somewhere around six preset channel alternatives. The choices in Vintage and Grunge are most like choices accessible in other photo-channel apps, for example, Flare and Analog. Yet, Snapseed enables you to make fine acclimations to each channel, so you won’t get that cutout to feel. For instance, you can change the surface of the channel and modify surface quality, immersion, brightness, vignette, and channel quality. The channels names are more senseless than engaging—for example, my most loved Vintage channel is Dexter, which gives a light green/dark tint to a picture.
The Black and White editing apparatus gives you a chance to pick between five diverse shading channels that change the manner in which the high contrast picture is rendered. In any case, what I truly love about Snapseed is it’s Center Focus and Tilt-Shift highlights. You can alter for the change, obscure, brightness, difference, and immersion, so you can ensure that the center looks more normal than jostling. These channels are exceptionally simple to utilize, and once you’ve included one channel, you can generally include another for a limitless number of results.
