Combo Apps/Snapseed Cards at Starbucks

Snapseed Blog

HEY EVERYONE !!! I wanted to let you know about the FREE Snapseed app cards at Starbucks, the app cards only work in the USA. I tried posting codes on Instagram and some of my good friends that follow me said the codes don’t work. I’ll be posting codes at the end of this blog, not everyone has a Starbucks in their town or close by. David (@doggonewalkin) fellow San Diegan gave me the idea of picking up cards and passing around the promo codes for this app. The fact is not everyone can drop $4.99 for a stand alone editing app. If you would like more information about Snapseed app just click HERE, everything you want to know about the app. The top photo was taken with Pro Camera 3.0 and edited with Snapneed.

My opinions on Snapseed are still the same, it has potential to be one of the best editing apps but it lacks a few things. For the price you for this app it’s missing a few good things, one is a back button or an undo button. This would be helpful in editing because I find it very frustrating to start all over again in editing a photo. Especially when it turns into something you don’t like and you have to remember the steps to get you back to where you left off at. Sometimes you don’t always remember all the steps you did while editing. The second thing is when you edit with this app, everyone knows you use Snapseed Gunge edit. I’m not to fond of the textures used with this app. The seem to look a little on the fake side or you slapped on the texture. I’ve played with this app and the different textures and they seem to all look alike with that slap on look to them. I’m hoping that the developers will work on the texture part of this app. Third is the frame selection, not very impressed with the lack of selection of frames they have to offer.

One thing I like about this app is how you can control exposures and saturation in different areas of the photo. It’s better to do this type of editing on the iPad instead of your iPhone. The reason is you have a much larger screen to work with rather than the smaller iPhone screen. You can see where the changes take place on exposures, details and saturation. It one of the only apps that offer this type of editing.

Two other editing tools I like are Drama and Tilt Shift, I’ll start with the Drama. Drama is really great for bring out details where HDR type of exposure would be necessary to get the details in Shadows and Highlights. Sometimes you don’t always have a tripod or the means to take multiple exposures with your iPhone. As long as you take a well exposed photo Drama will work with you in bringing out details in your photo. It does make your photo really grainy and contrasty. You will have to use a Denoise app to smooth out your photo.

Tilt Shift is another great editing tool on Snapseed, it’s the only one I’ve seen where you can actually control the blur gradation of a photo. Some apps over blur with their tilt shift tools/presets, Tilt Shift Gen is still my favorite blurring app to this day but Snapseed is a great alternate to making fake miniatures, DoF (depth of field) and artsy blurred photos.

  3. The fastest way to succeed is to look as though you’re playing by somebody else’s rules, while quietly playing from your own.
    Many men meet with failure because of the insufficient persistence in creating new plans to substitute for those that fail.

      Sorry I ran out of codes to give out…if I get any I will let you know and email you one. I had to go like to 10 Starbucks to find the code cards. I do recommend you get an app called App Shopper. It’s a great app that let’s you know when apps go one sale or for FREE !!! I got Snapseed FREE when it was offered the first time around. Again I’m sorry I ran out of codes, I have over 150 of those cards…
