5 Tips To Make Your iPhone Photos Look 100 Times Better Using Only 1 App 

I will be posting many app tutorials on this blog. I want to start with Snapseed because it is my go to app for everything from sharpening and contrasting to filters and lens blur. Every photo I edit starts out in Snapseed.

Here’s how to use it:

1. Choose a photo to upload into the app by clicking on “open”. You also have the option of taking a photo with the camera icon below.

2. Once you have your photo loaded, click the editing icon which resembles a pencil at the bottom right. This brings up a menu of editing tools.

3. Play around with the “tune image” category. Do this by holding your finger down which brings up options. After the menu comes up, slide your finger up and down to pick a category and left and right to increase or decrease the effect.  I almost always increase ambiance and contrast. Apply the effects you used by clicking the check mark at the bottom right.

4. Increase Sharpening and Structure a little bit for every photo. iPhone photos just aren’t as sharp as a dslrs. You can do this by clicking on the editing symbol at the bottom right (the one that looks like a pencil). Choose “details” to bring up structure and sharpening. Again, slide your finger up and down to chose the one to apply and left and right to increase/decrease the effect.

5. Play around with the other categories for editing such as lens blur, vignette, brush, black and white, and many more. The healing tool works fairly well for removing unwanted objects, but I prefer the app ReTouch for this purpose.
