and it's available on both Android and iOS devices and if you don't yet had this on your phone you need to put this on your phone for the tutorial that I'm going to do today it is going to be a basic entry-level tutorial if you're not that experienced

with snap seed or you're not quite sure what to do with it the first image that we're gonna edit today is gonna be a photograph of a woman and the second image that we're gonna work with is a photograph of food but it doesn't matter what sort of

image that you have what I'm going to show you today applies to everything and gamers this applies to you too you can take screenshots of your gameplay walk through the steps that I'm about to show you and make your images look a lot better and this is the

sort of thing that you want to do when you're using your gameplay images for your thumbnails so let me open up Snapseed and show you how this is done so when you open up the Snapseed app you want to choose a photo out of your gallery to work

with the first LED what we're gonna work on is a portrait of a woman so I'm gonna tap on that and she's gonna open up down here on the very bottom you're gonna see looks tools and export we're gonna tap on tools and it's gonna load up a

bunch of tools here the first tool that we want to work with in this tutorial is in the top left and it's called toon image you want to tap on that now if you push your finger on the screen and move it up or down and menu is

gonna pop up you're gonna see brightness contrast saturation ambience highlights shadows and warmth this is the main thing this is the juice it's gonna make your photo come to life so the first thing that I'm gonna do for this particular image because it looks a little cold and

it doesn't really pop is I'm gonna change the brightness and I'm gonna go into ambience and I'm gonna add some saturation and warmth now to add these once you select one you simply move your finger to the left or to the right as you see here on the

top the brightness numbers are changing so I'm gonna add just a little bit of brightness I'm gonna press down and go to the next one which is saturation I'm gonna move to the right you give it just a little bit of saturation I'm gonna hold down again go

to the next one which is ambience I'm gonna go to the right again add some ambience I'm gonna push down again I'm gonna go down to warmth go to the right now you see what's happening here is I changed these that's adding a lot of color to the

image so I'm just gonna play with these a little bit until I find a look that I like now anytime along the way if you're curious where you've started and where you're at now on the top right you can tap on this little icon here and it's going

to show you where you started so this is where we started and this is where we are now you can see the image comes to life quite a bit so I'm happy with this and on the bottom right hand side I'm gonna tap on the checkmark to save

it now I'm gonna go back down to tools I'm gonna go down and find the portrait icon I'm gonna tap on that right away it's kind of analyzed the photo and what it's going to do it's just gonna add some smoothness to the skin and some whites to

the eyes so if I use two fingers to zoom in and then I go to the top right to see what it looked like before and after this is before and this is after you can see what it's doing to the face it's really bringing some clarity to

the face and some whites to the eyes it's smoothing the skin quite a bit and I like the way this looks now if you want to adjust this you're gonna go down to the bottom center to the levels you're gonna tap on that and you can adjust any

of this so if you want more whiteness to the eyes you can simply go to the left or to the right if you want to smooth the skin out more you choose that and go to the left or to the right now I'm gonna zoom back out using

two fingers I'm gonna go to the top right again to see where we started and you see what it's doing it's putting a focus on her face and lighting it up and putting white ins to the eyes and I like this a lot now after each tool adjustment

is saved you can tap and hold on the image and it's gonna show you where you started and where you are now and you can see this is a drastic difference and you can see the color that it's adding and it looks a lot better the blues are

coming out and this is a sort of thing that you want to do with your pictures and it doesn't matter if you're on Instagram or sending these out on Facebook or using them as a YouTube thumbnail if you want to add life to your photos and really make

them pop this is how you do it now I'm happy with this but I'm gonna play with it just a little bit more I'm gonna go back down to tools and I'm gonna scroll down to thin yet I'm gonna tap on that and it's gonna add a little

bit of vignette around the edges the first thing we're gonna do is come down to the inner brightness and I'm gonna brighten up the center just a little bit I'm gonna tap and hold and we gonna outer brightness and I don't want such a heavy vignette so I'm

gonna back it off just a little bit and then I'm gonna save it right you can see this is quite a difference this really makes the photo come to life so I'm happy with this and this is as far as we're gonna go on this first tutorial we're

getting into more advanced things a little bit later but for this I just want to walk you through the basics so we want to save this image by going to the bottom and tap it on export and here you get some options on how you want to save

it for this particular photo I want to save a copy of the photo so I'm gonna tap on that it's gonna run through all the filters and it's gonna tell you that the photo is saved and then you can go on and use the photo anywhere you want

now before I move on to the next image I want to hear what you think about snap C or what your favorite photo editor is do you use snap C to use pics art what do you use go down leave a comment below I read every single question

and comment and I reply to us and many of them as possible and when this video is over I'm gonna go down there and carry on this conversation to find out what your favorite photo editing apps are now let's move on to the next image now for the

food photo we're gonna walk through the same process but I'm going to show you how to highlight certain colors to add some more color to those individual colors and I just love Indian food I'm just going to tell you that right now so I'm gonna go back to

tools down here in the bottom and we go to tune image and the first thing I'm gonna do is I'm gonna add a little brightness and come down I'm gonna add some saturation I'm gonna add some ambience look at that right there just ambience by itself I mean

look at what that does to colors this is the sort of thing that you want to do especially with your YouTube thumbnails so I'm gonna add a little bit of Ian's I might add some warmth let them go down to the bottom right and I'm gonna save it

I'm gonna go to tools then I'm gonna come down and I'm gonna find this selective tool which is right here I'm gonna tap on that and the way this works is anywhere I tap it's gonna drop an anchor so I'm gonna use two fingers and zoom in and

I'm gonna drop an anchor right here on this red area so you see it's a B what that means is that's brightness so if I tap and hold and move my finger I can change the brightness contrast saturation or the structure I'm gonna change the saturation of this

red air so that point is dropped and I'm just gonna simply move my finger to the right and you see the red has changing if I move it to the left it goes the other way so I'm gonna crank this up because I want this red to pop

now that this anchor is set in the saturation is there I'm gonna hit the checkmark and save it I'm gonna zoom out a bit I'm going to move it around I'm gonna change the color of this I'm gonna go back selectively I'm gonna drop that right there go

back to saturation I'm gonna crank that up and save it and then I'm gonna come in here and I'm gonna crank up the greens on the broccoli we're gonna go back selectively drop that right on a green I'm gonna come in and change the saturation again and that's

gonna change all of the Greens that match the color of the greens that I've selected with this anchor look at that before and after you see how these colors are starting to pop it looks great doesn't it so I'm going to do another thing here I'm going to

zoom into one of the greens here in the corner I'm gonna do another selective gonna tap on that back to saturation again I'm gonna add some color just a little bit and I'm gonna save that so each thing that I'm doing it's selectively adding more color to the

image now look I love how this looks I think it looks fantastic so what I'm gonna do is I'm gonna save this I'm gonna go down to export and I'm gonna save it so it's really that easy with just those few basic steps to really make your photos

come to life but there's something that I wanted to keep in mind I used a lot of saturation these images and a lot of ambience but it's really easy to go too far the last thing you want people to do is say oh that pictures been photoshopped because

that's what they're gonna say that I'm gonna say it's been snapped seated because nobody's saying that are we saying that is anybody saying snap seated no and I know you've all come across this picture so they just looked bizarre and they looked fake so don't overdo it with

the saturation and ambience you want it to look real you want it to look alive you want it to look i catching you just don't want to cross that line so use those sparingly now this was a very basic and entry-level tutorial if you want to get into
