Adding free form focus points!!!
I really love using this app to edit all my photos. I’m rating 4 stars, to possibly grab your attention on a few new suggestions to add into the apps editing features. First, I think adding a free form focus area in the Lens Blur instead of shapes would be AMAZING. Along with that adding the ability to not just have one focal point, but multiple focal pints, while still being able to blur out the background or things the editor doesn’t want the photo to focus on. Another new feature you should add to this app should be to have a onscreen convenient undo/redo buttons while using any tool in the app; that way the editor won’t have to continuously click in and out of the tool in order to make an alter to an edit or to fix a mistake. I realize there’s an erasing tool, but when you have much to edit and a list of other photos you plan to edit as well, it is time consuming; not to mention that many people using there fingers to edit will likely cause a mistake to worsen by using the eraser tool, which is well - another negative.
- Anyways I really do hope someone who can add these two features read my review, and will actually consider adding these two features. I guarantee it will make many people happy.
-Overall though, this photo editing app is AMAZING and I highly recommend using it!!!
While the concept is good, the topic of Mobile photography is certainly relevant and interesting, and the the delivery format is satisfactory (if not outstanding), the main issue I have with Mobiography magazine is with the way much of the content is written. I’m sorry Andy, but your article-writing skills leave a lot to be desired. Clearly, you have never been formally trained in creative writing or journalism. The tone and voice of the articles generally resembles that of adolescents texting. I find myself searching in vain for commas and hyphens which never seem to appear where the rules of grammar dictate they should. A rather technical walkthrough of a mobile app’s functionality is written in the colloquial tone of a diary entry. To add insult to injury, the free copy one receives (as of October 2018) is an issue dating back to mid-2015 - irrelevant antiquity when it comes to the fast-moving field of mobile photography. Finally, despite preview thumbnails of the app running on an iPhone X screen, I found the actual app not to be optimized for mine, with the black bar often truncating text and images while I perused the content.
I would certainly opt-in to similar product, granted better content quality and execution. But as things stand I will not be moving forward with a paid subscription.
It was great—until it wasn’t
When I first discovered Snapseed, I was teaching a smart phone photography class and didn’t know how I was going to be able to help the non-Apple students. This app saved the day. I have relied on it for several years now. My 10,000-word class presentation Is filled with all kinds of Snapseed Screenshots. Students seem to like it a lot. Imagine my dismay when, a couple of weeks ago, the screen turns black whenever I try to access a photo from either my or photos or favorite is filled with all kinds of Snapseed Screenshots. Students seem to like it a lot. Imagine my dismay when, a couple of weeks ago, the screen turns black whenever I tap a photo from either my All Photos or Favorites app album! I can still swipe through the filmstrip if I need to open a photo for editing, but that’s so impractical for 9K images on my iPhone X iOS 12.0.1. During class, I also project live-screen demos from my phone (using an HDMI-to-lightning connector). The only place I’ve found this problem discussed is on Reddit. No one has a solution yet. Please, Google: help!
