455 SnapSeed

OK, I’ve used the two photographs I’m going to include quite recently in blog posts, they are only here for illustration. The brief focus of tonight’s post is the application I used to create these pictures.

That application is Snapseed. It is available on both iphone and Android, and it is completely free and not riven by adverts. The process used to create the header picture, and this one;

Is called Colour Selection. The process is conceptually fairly straight forward, and generally comprises;

  • Open the Application
  • Open the picture you wish to work on
  • Create a monochrome layer on the picture
  • Work on erasing that part of the mono layer allowing the underlaying colour to show through.
  • Save the picture

I haven’t gone into some of the detail for example that of the fourth step, which also involves error correction (you’ve erased the wrong part, or too much of the mono layer.

The application is absolutely loaded with editing tools, that really allow you to explore photography. I have only, through the use of this one process, begun to explore the capabilities of the app. If you are interested in a free, highly effective editing tool then I strongly recommend SnapSeed.

I just want to write, but I prefer to stay away from controversial topics like politics. I am happy to confess that at the moment, I am writing for me. If you enjoy my writings, and I hope you do then that is all the better.
