1. Welcome to Snapseed: hello and welcome to this course in snaps it editing. My name is Sebastian Vader, and I am a professional trainer and photographer have been passionate about photography since the old times off analogue cameras and built on this passion in the time of digital. Nowadays, with the advances of smartphone cameras and their reps, photography is present in everyone's life. So why not transformed his daily habit of taking photos with your smartphone into a pleasant and rewarding experience? For next couple of hours, we will learn the basics off everything in a fun and effortless way. We will go through the main tools off snap seed from the way we downloaded to the more advanced techniques. In the end, you will have the skills that will help you understand this amazing app and will allow you to do your own advanced edits so that you can be perfectly satisfied with the photos he shoot. So let's start his journey and begin learning in a fun and easy way 2. Understanding the basics: understanding the basics. To make this an easy and pleasant experience, I will accompany each explanation with a video on how to do that. Starting from the Donald Steps to the Advanced Settings, you will have a visual aid on how to do everything. This way you can get back to the party, need to revisit, and they're short on your learning her. The first thing you need to know about Snap Seed is that you can download it and use it for free. Simply downloaded from Google, Play for Android were I store for IOS and then you're good to go. The entire course is presented for those using Android smartphone. However, when I always yep is very similar. So the information you learned in this course as an android user can be easily adapted and applied. Okay, now that you downloaded it, click on the icon and opened. Yet it looks like a small leaf with several types of green. After you open it, you will see the open option signal with a big plus tapping that will allow you to open any image you took with your camera. This is a good moment to be organized since it will be a lot easier for you to find and then save your photos. I suggest you make a folder with the photos you want to add it and maybe call it for us treaded and another one that you can call finish photos or any other names as long as it is clear where they are located. 3. Snapseed Main Categories: snap seeds main categories. After you open your image, you will see three text buttons first called Luke Second called tools. The third, called Export The Looks Button, gives you the opportunity to choose some off the presets that snaps it has and applied and directed to arrange. We will discuss these in for the details after you understand the second button, the tools more and last. The third button is export, which gives you the possibility to save export or share the image after you have additive. 4. The Tools Option: through this option, this option opens the possibility to access most of the tools he snaps. Seed has the name already reveals clicking this button. You will have access to all the tools that this APP offers from turning the image to adding friends for an easier approach on, Snap said. We can divide the tow us into. But just months, from image tuning to healing filters from HDR toning yet and the last three options, double exposure, text and frames could be called changing to us. The first category D adjustment to us Give it a possibility to adjust the images at a basic level. We will discuss each of them in more detail with a visual example on where to find them and how to use them. The second category is represented by the filters that allow you to make more advanced changes to your images by applying presets and layers of colors and textures. The third category is represented by three tours that allow you to add text your images at borders or overlap several images with a double exposure toe. And once you made a change to your image, you can see the before and after by clicking in the right upper corner on this off the screen where you see these item, I suggest you first go through each of the tools so that you identify them easier and then use them appropriately. To make things simple. I use the same image for each of the tools that I present. The image is shot in a beautiful park in Croatia, Call pleaded, and it was shot on a smartphone, obviously, and edited entirely. Snaps him has everyone. When using that tours, you have the possibility to choose between several options in each sub to, for example, the first tool is the tune Image Tool, which got a visitor just the immediate in terms of brightness situation, shadows, etcetera, moving your finger up and down. The image will allow it to scroll between these options. Right now, saturation shadows while moving your finger towards left or right will allow you to adjust these adjustments to make the image brighter or darker to make, to make it less saturated to the left or more saturated to the right 5. The Export Option: the export, but the export button gives you the possibility to save export and share the image. After you have edited, you can save it as a copy, save it with a different name and in a specific location. Or you can share it on one of the many social media options you see some your share your image on one of the many social media auctions made Facebook. What's up? Gmail, Dr Skype or abducted it online. This is how you can save your image and create a copy off your foe. This is how you export your image. We're separating a copy off your photo. And last but not least, this is how you use the export as option, which allows it to create a carpet was selected for her with a specific name, so go ahead and play with his options and get familiarized with them. 6. Looks: the looks button has already mentioned in the beginning. Off the course, the looks button gives you the opportunity to choose some off the presets. The snaps is has and apply them directly to your image. Sometimes one or more of this process can work, so go ahead and try them and see if they fit your image. As a rule of thumb, though, I recommend that you don't apply this process for your images as they would not be suitable in every kids. Instead, try to understand what they do to the image by looking at the details, said things they apply. This can be done with a view, a disruption which will be explained later. After things become clear. The name of few off this looks we have the port adoption, which basically darkens the image around the main object. The subject we're having yet and applies to tools, the glamour, glow and portrait. The aim is the same to direct the viewers attention to the main subject, as the name says. This looks is great for an image that has a portrait, however, has said before you can achieve the same results, or even better, by applying yourself the tools I mentioned having more control. Another look is the smooth one, which does something similar to deported. Look, but without opinion. You can see here that there are slight differences between the two. Most the third look this pop, which applies the porter tool than the 80 our escape, the tonal contrast and then some curves in this stage of the course. Oh, this seems a bit complicated. After we will go through, each toward you will get a better understanding of what they do both individually and combine. 7. Tune Image: doing damage. This story is one of the most user wants, as it gives the possibility to make general just must hear images, regardless, How good an image is straight from the camera it was still needs some basic tunings, such as the ones he described before. As you can see in this video, the tune Image Tool covers the following adjustments. Brightness, contrast situation. MBIA's highlights, shadows and war brightness as the name suggests just how bright your image will be for how dark moving the slider to the left make the overall image darker. Moving into the right, he makes it brighter or more exposed. It is similar to the exposure feature from Photoshopped Light Room or other editing software. Just remember that this adjustment is a general one, that it is applied to the entire image. Therefore, brightening and image will bring you light into the darker areas of the photos, but with also exposed the lighter parts of the image, sometimes burning the image and removing the information that once existed there. So use this option with caution, and if you're looking toe, bring light into the darker areas, then use another tour such as the shadows. Contrast gives you more contrast to the overall image by darkening the dark areas and opening the light areas. When you have a colorful image, it also adds more situation. Well, this looks like a nice tool, and the finished image will look in. Has you should use it again with caution, as you will lose some details in your image and by using you would caution. I mean to use the slider in a small amount, sometimes the wrong turn 15. Another recommendation is to use it on certain types off images such as landscapes, architectural backgrounds and try to avoid it on Portrait's or in images where you want to maintain a softer look. Situation is the option that allows you to add also strike color from your image. Moving the slider to the left like this will make the image look less saturated or even turning toe black and white. By moving into the right like this, we'll give it more color. Exaggerating, however, will make the image look to saturated and non natural. Remember this piece of advice enhance, but don't go overboard again. Situation works better for landscapes, certain backgrounds, objects and less for portrait. Mbia's is an amazing tool that can give incredible results if understood correctly and use creativity. This is because it can set the right mood in image. Such a decent Google. You will get the following definition. The ambience tool is a special type contrast that controls the balance off light. In a four. He can be used to balance back nude photos or to accentuate contrasts. Round of your photo swipe right for photos where the subject is dark card in a big room, swipe left to increase the contrast of dark objects and create a slight blow around our corruption. This is especially helpful in photos that are slightly flat, as you might have already guessed. Do take care with this tool to used to march forward 50. It can give your image was strange glow that looks on natural look like in a badly edited HDR. We will talk about HDR images later. For now, just remember that it stands for high, dynamic range images. Highlights is a tool that allows it to recover. Some details in the very bright areas often image or vice versa, to brighten even more a bright area. For example, it is okay to increase the highlights off the sun as we are usedto not seeing any details are rice. I used to seeing the sun as a big round circle with no details. It is it is a good approach to decrease the highlights off some clouds in order to recover some details. In them. Shadows is the tool that allows it to bring light into the dark areas of the image without the fatty affecting the brighter areas used in a decent amount around 15 to 25. This tool can give you some details in the areas that they were less lit used too much, and the dark areas will also show a lot of noise in the image. Making you less usable worth is the tool that enables you to give a warmer or colder look to your image. Moving the slider to the left makes the image colder. While moving into the right makes the image Luke warm 8. Details: Adidas option. This tool allows you to do two things, both with the same aim. One of them is the sharpening option, which is the regular option you have in any editing. Soft using, sharpening your image will have more leaders again. Using a fair amount of sharp. Running up to 25 will give details to the image without affecting it and making it look unnatural while using it too much. Close to 100 will do a more damage. Pay me to Danny has it. The second option is structure. As the name suggests. These days, care off the entire structure of the which hand. While it makes it sharper, it does not affect the edges off objects. Play a little with both options and see which one you prefer and which one works best for your images. Also, to make sure you understand the results you get, use the loop auction by double clicking on image. This way you will see the image at 100% and you'll be able to decide if the amount you chose is enough or too much 9. Curves: the curves toe. This is truly an amazing tool that allows it to bring your images to life because it adds contrast in color. What you need to know about cursing, snap seed and any other editing software is that it shows you're history Graham, which is basically a graphic representation off the information in your image. Simply put, what you see here is a history. Graham is the information from the image, the pixels, the colors, the details, etcetera. On the left side, you have the darker parts off your image for the shows. On the right side, you have the brighter part or the highlights. And in the middle, of course, you have the midterms, the history Graham is represented on on X Y graph where the horizontal line is the X. The vertical line is the Y on diagonal line, crossing it using this leg and now allows you to adjust the shadows, the highlights or the midterms, as you see in this image that they're gonna has two dots and you can select any off them by simply clicking on them and and janitors blue. Then, with the DOT selected, you can drag it up or down left or right. Dragging the bottom left dot to the right on the X axis will make damage darker while drinking it up on the Y axis will make the image look more wash. Stop as it brings more light in it. Drinking the top right dot the left on the X axis will make the image brighter while dragging it down on the Y axis will maybe me to look darker because it takes away the light for me, dragging either off, the two dots old awaited an X coordinate off. The square will turn the image completely white or completely dark, depending on the direction. After successfully overcoming this technical information, which is probably among the most difficult and snap seed, let's see wants to remember about this, too. First, it allows you to give more contrast and situation to your images. Second, it allows you to get almost a pure black and a pure white without losing color. You can achieve this by dragging the bottom left button to the right thank you name each below and drinking the top right button to the left, just to the point where the information in the history Graham begins this way, you can be sure that the blacks are blacks and the whites or white and not washed up in terms of Bottas. When accessing the curse tool, you can see five symbols from left to right. The first symbol is an axe, which allows you to cancel any effect you achieved with this story. The next one looks like a circle within a circle and gives you the possibility to added a image on all its colors. Rgb red, blue, green or a specific on a color or on their luminosity will get into that soon and show you on an example how they differ. The third symbol looks like a night that went breast makes a history and visible or invisible. This is useful when you want to see the current effect on your image without struggling to see through the history. The fourth seem well, gives you the possibility to access and use presets. Curves. Some of them has different have different names aimed at helping you understand their effects. Such a soft contrast, hard core interests for Brighton, while others have acronyms made of letters and numbers such as easier one p zero to use your own user, too. These last effects are a combination off. Kurds may don't RGB as well as on each color channel red, green, blue and luminosity as well. Give them a try and see if any face the image or editing. In some cases that might be useful and work in others. Not as in life. The photography will also have to make a lot of trial and errors and learned from. And the fifth button is the check one, which allows you to apply the changes and you achieved with deciding. All right. Now let's dive into the editing options through colors. You can access them with the second button, the one with a circle we didn't search. You probably know that any Mitch has three main colors red, green, blue shortened RGB and their combinations. As mentioned, you have the possibility to added the image in RGB or separately on each off these colors. Using the RGB curves option will affect the entire image on all the three main colors. Therefore, you will have less control. Using curves on each of the three colors will give you more control over damage, and at the same time, will prove to be more difficult as you need to understand how colors work together. And this is particularly important when you're editing portrait's and you don't want to add a someone with a green face on this issue of deporting off talk. Regardless, there are situations when anything on specific Carlos comes in handy, as you can see in the image below. Choosing the red color for current editing will allow you to decrease the car, the quantity of red in the image by dragging the bottom left or to the right and increase it by drinking the top right, not the left. The opposite off red is green, so that is the color you will get in your image. Decreasing the reds will bring more green and increasing. The rest will take the grease from David. Something similar will happen to your image if you added the curves on the Green Channel. However, here, if you slide the bottom life dot to the right and the top right dot to the left, you will increase the amount of purple, and finally, the Blue Channel will allow it to increase for decrease the amount of blue in the image here. The opposite off blue will be yellow. Play with these options and see how you can change the mood off your image by simply tuning this lighters left or right up or down. I also mentioned that there is 1/5 option when you added currency snaps it. It is called luminous, and what it does is allow you to add or subtract light without adding situation. While editing on RGB will had situations your image the luminous option as light without transforming the overall situation off the image, there's explained before they would a slider to add light posters subtracted from the image . Besides what I already mentioned, it is recommended to use on s shaped curve when your curves so that you add a decent amount of Contras and take away from any unwanted light that might make Jamie's look a bit washed . 10. White Balance: white balance store. This tool is a very important because it allows you to balance the temperature of the colors in your images. Here to you have the X button, which cancels the changes you applied, and the check button, which applies the changes. And these are in every tool is now. Besides these two buttons, you have three more ones in white bannister. The second option is a W, which stands for outer white flowers. Pressing this button will allow the apt to decide for you how to adjust the white man. Usually it does a pretty good job, so try and see if you are satisfied with the result. If not, you can adjust it many one. The third button looks like a couple of interrupted paralyzed, and this is the manual control bottom for white balance. Basically, it will allow you to adjust to parameters, the color temperature and the team. The color temperature allows you to decide how war or cold on image will be, and the team allows you to decide if the overall image would go towards green or magenta. Here to you will need to make compromise and adjust the image according to what you think it looks best. The fourth bottom looks like a pass ill, and it is going a color picker as it allows you to slide it over the image. And just the calorie thing works best as a white in your image. Play around with this and see how the color off your image changes has your movie. There's a recommendation when you have a portrait in your image. The white around the iris can be a good source off white to pick it for your image. In other cases, look for something that looks white, remembering that the perfect white it's almost impossible to find in an image. 11. Crop: the crop. This tool does the same thing as in any other editing software. Cross the image in a pre defined or freeform you can choose the first option. The free one, which has no constrains as to how to crop the next one called Original, remembers the size of the rich and crops accordingly without distorting the vertical or horizontal. The square option is best worry when you want to square images so popular in instagram and then you have several other options, such as a three by 24 by three or 16 by nine Below this options. You have two more waters, one looking like a circle with a narrow, which makes the change from less cape to portrayed framing. When applying the crop tool, the other bottom looks like a rectangle with several dart inside, and this gives you the possibility to show or hide the crop toe. Give them a try and see which works best for you and your images 12. Rotate: rotation toe this don't have see rotate the image in specific Pretty Final because each press of the button that looks like a circle within a narrow will rotate the image 90 degrees. You can also rotate the image as much as you want, bearing in mind that you will lose certain parts of your image as the EP also does cropping when rotating the me. The other bottom you have looks like to mirror trying us, which do exactly this. The mirroring off the image on the horizontal axis. 13. Perspective: the perspective tour. This tour has four options feels rotate scale and free if you choose. Still, then you can change the perspective off the image, either on the vertical or horizontal. If the image is not very complicated, their fields in the edges with the surrounding information, you can also choose this option toe. Feel the edges with black or white by pressing on the icon resembling a square within the square. The second option is rotate and allows you to slightly rotate the image to change the respect. The third option is scale, and with this you can increase or decrease the size of Damian. And the last option is free, which has no constraints on how to change the perspective for DVD. You can do it separately from each corner, which is useful in some situations when you simply want to straighten something and not affect the entire image. There is also the out about auction accessible with the icon that looks like a war. This allows the up to change the perspective as it sees fit 14. Expand: the expand option. This option allows you to in our damage with three options. Smart, which days? Information from the surrounding edges. Black or white, which acts sort off like a frame for the image. It can be useful when the main subject off the image was friend to tide and could use some space. We're simply when you want a larger framed for your photo. 15. Selective: the Selective Tour. This tool is one that will make a difference between a good and an amazing image because it allows you to make changes to a specific area, not the entire ing. It works by simply adding a plus to your image and then with two fingers, usually the thumb and index. You can increase or decrease the active area on the selection, making a zoom gesture to increase the selected area and the opposite. To decrease it, you will see a red overlay circle off the area that it selected and will be affected by any change. Reply. After you are satisfied with a selection you made, you can simply apply up to four changes. Brightness, contrast, situation and structure. These effects are the same as the ones explaining the previous to us, except they are being applied locally. Your selection. In case you want to apply the same selective changes again to another part of the image. Simply click on the selection toe activated. It will be highlighted in blue and will offer you several options. Cut, copy, delete or cancer, copy this election and then click elsewhere on the beach and then choose the option to paste almost magically. The selection would be copied to another location without having to go through all the steps again. This is probably one of the elements that differentiate snaps it from any other free abs available now the possibility to make selective adjustments. 16. Brush: brush. This tool is like the one in for a shop or light. It gives you the possibility to paint an effect on a certain part of your image. It has four options now. Jim Byrne Exposure, Temperature and situation. When you select one of these four options, it turns blue. Either of them can be used to darken or brighten parts of the image. Using a negative number minus five or minus, Stan will dark ending while using a positive number plus five. 17. Healing: healing toe. This is the option that emulates the content Aware toe from for sure applied carefully. Your image will look as if we're removed. Object didn't even exist. Have patients learning the store, and it will give a great results. The simpler the image and ammonia through the background is the better the results. While using this tool, you have to be undo and redo options so you can play back and forth with them until you're satisfied with the results. 18. HDR Scape: you escaped. HDR stands for high dynamic range and refers to the possibility off a camera or an image to capture details both in the dark areas and in the light ones. Although cameras are advancing rapidly in this area, there aren't any near to the human eye, which is capable off on incredible HDR. This is why images need a bit off editing and tweaking to give us the photos we've seen, although I'm another fan off any automated. 19. Glamour Glow: glamour girl. This tool is a letter that allows it to add a creamy soft glow to your image. It is best using portrait glamour shorts or when you want to give the impression off a dreamy place. Although it works for many situations, I wouldn't use it in every region. You can either choose one of the five precepts given by snaps it, or you can create your own my sliding vertically between the three options blow saturation and or 20. Tonal Contrast: The tonal contrast to this tool is also filter that brings out the fine contrast on both highlights and shadows. It has five options. You can play with high tones, mid tones, low tones, deck shadows and protect highlights. By now, these options should already be clear to you. They are intuitive on the name. Indicate what they do to David. High tones at contrast to the highlights off your image may tones. 21. Drama: how much this tool is, a filter that allows you to create unique images. It applies a personalized effect to each image, ranging from very subtle changes in details. To start off HDR changes, this filter has six options. Drama wantedto bright, one into dark wanted to and which one? Each one can be changed and customized by lowering or increasing the amount off the filter strength or the situation again, I would not recommend this filter and certainly would recommend against it. And guess using it on every image. There is the tendency, especially when you are at the beginning off your learning experience of photography. Toby amazed by some filters and to overuse them on each road, try to keep a critic I and see if they improve the image for, on the contrary, that midget. 22. Vintage: the vintage store. This is probably the one feel that that needs no introduction. It has been in every editing software since the beginning, as the name suggests it as a vintage look to your Amy. It comes in 12 number process, and some are quite interesting. This does not mean that they are recommended to be used for every image in a time. Are there certain images? They can be interesting. You can choose any off this presets and the adjust them as you wish in terms of brightness , situation, their strength and vignettes strength. 23. Grainy Film: the grain if your toe another filter probably for dozens 30 for the film era is the grainy feel. This gives the cold rainy, looked your images and has two options. Grain and star strength. Rain means the amount of grain you add to the image. Nowadays, Costa, known as noise style strength is how much off that effect you are applying to the image ranging from 0 to 100. Give it a try and see what are the images that they work best for. 24. Retrolux: retro relax tool. This is a filtered at a place, an overlay on your image and allows you to choose from 13 presets or customize them on six various options. Brightness, contrast, situation, star strength, scratches and light leaks again. For those nostalgic for the film era, this filter will seem interesting. I, for one, use it in some off that it's when I give it. I want to give it a different look. Channels were a business card you will see later the steps off this editing play with this presets and the options they have and see how many combinations they offer. 25. Grunge: ranch tour. These tools is a huge set off 1500 fear to us obtained through the combination off several options. Kyle Brightness Contrast situation and texture Thanks. The novelty to the stool is that it has textures that can be applied over your email. It can be interesting if you should buy grounds and want to make them unique. The sheer number of the combinations mean that we will not get into detail about these filters but rather invite you to explore them and see how they work. My recommendation is to try them on backgrounds. M s make some unique. 26. Black and White: you can white toe. This is also a filter because it is applied over your image. It offers six options. Neutral contrast, bright, dark film and dark sky. As the name suggests, some off them light and damage. Others darken it, while others give the image in dark field look, they can be adjusted individually in terms of brightness, contrast and green, probably for another. What's interesting is that you can edit this filter on color channels as well, like we did with the curves. Even though the filter it is black and white, it can still be adjusted on the reds, blues or greens. Give it a try and see the differences. 27. Noir: and worked with this builder would create cinematic, black and white images with a moody look. They can be adjusted on four options brightness, wash grade and few district. The APP also offer sporting presets that can be tweet, toe your own style and liking. 28. Portrait: portent toe. This is the future, especially for those passionate about portrait and selfies. It has several options. Such a skin toning face spotlight, skins moving or I clarity with next go through each of these options. Needless to say, this filter only works with partners. If the up cannot identify a port in your image, it will give you the message. No faces could be found in his photo and ask you to decide upon one of the toe auctions Castle Theater or try harder. When you accept this filter, you're given three options besides the one to cancel or apply the tour, you will have three icons. 1st 1 looking like a face 2nd 1 like or his alter interrupted lies 1/3 1 like several books . Overly. The first I can allows you to add skin toning with five different options. None. They'll fair, medium and dark. Each one gives that the tones off the screen a lighter or darker. If then, the second icon allows you to access free, more adjustment face spotlight, skins moving and I clarity. Spaceport light worth like a vignette, identifying the face in your image and darkening the rest while lighting the face, the higher the number, the stronger defect. Skin smoothing makes the skin look softness. Move.
