Snapped and Seeded

posted in: Photography, Travel | 26

I’ve been to my hometown, Durban, recently and snapped a few shots of my journey. I’ve finally succumbed, and decided to use a photo editor to transform the look of my pictures. My first experience ever with a photo enhancing editor was with Google’s Snapseed. Although I find these kinds of apps truly impressive, I don’t feel comfortable taking the credit for the end product that has been mastered by a programmed application rather than my (novice) photography skills. And enough of technicality, take a look at what I’ve put together:







Any tips on how to improve or make better use of Snapseed’s tools?

    Truly impressive.

    I also use snapseed but I prefer Pixlr-o-matic.

    You edited these perfectly 🙂 Usually when people edit they get excited and want to use EVERY effect available in one pic, Which eventually butchers the pic instead of enhancing it

    Very nice pictures and the works in to making them! The tool does not make the pictures by itself the person who uses the tool is.
