Snapseed (by Google) can take your drab and lifeless images and turn them into something special, instantly – and for FREE.
These are not your average Instagram filters, these are a range of editing and refinement tools that are incredibly easy to apply to any image (even if you don’t really know what you’re doing…).
Simply download the Snapseed app (available in all App Stores), load up your image and apply an initial filter before adding some refinement settings until you’re happy with it – then export it straight to Instagram (or your photo library for use elsewhere).
Our favorite filter is the “Morning” filter – what it can do to grey, dull images is literally amazing. You can also use this app on high res images straight from your full size camera – idea for poster printing, etc.
TIP: The App automatically reduces the quality of saved images. To change this to the highest possible quality, go into “Settings”, then change the quality setting from 95% to 100%.
