Side note: There are lots of other cool editing options you can do using Snapseed, so it’s worth checking out other Snapseed tutorials and how-to’s.


1. Download Snapseed app (free from the iTunes App Store) to your iPhone.

2. Open Snapseed and click “Open photo-from device”.

3. Click on the bottom right pencil icon to pull up the editing tools.

4. Click “Tune Image”.

Touch your picture then drag your finger down – this is how you toggle between all the different editing options. The main ones I use are Brightness, Contrast, and Shadows.

5. Brighten the picture.

It depends on the light of your original photo, but I tend to brighten my pictures somewhere between 60-100. Simply touch the screen and slide your finger to the right (and you’ll see your number increase. Slide your finger to the left and the number will decrease).

6. Play with the Contrast until you get the desired color you’re looking for.

7. Play with the Shadows. Sometimes my pictures can have terrible shadows and I want them to be more bright white…simply play with the shadow intensity until your shadows disappear.

8. Once you’re satisfied with your photo. Tap ✔ on the bottom right to save all your adjustments.

10. Hit SAVE on the top right to save your image on your phone.

It literally takes me less than a minute to make my photos bright, light and airy with this Snapseed app, which is why I love it!
