Snapseed 2. It seems that google has waited for my recent post on Snapseed 1.6 to release a completely redesigned version of Snapseed. 

One item checked off from my wish list: Snapseed contains multiple undo and  multiple redo functionality including “re-adjusting the past”. Impressive. The rest of the redesign is debatable. The current state of the image is displayed full screen – much larger than before, which is good. You can even zoom in further to check the details. As a trade off the tools are accessible via a (+) control button to be revealed as an overlay. A simple GOMS analysis would show that this takes approx. twice as many steps to choose a filter compared to the interaction model in Snapseed 1.6 before. Of course, the filters have been reorganized and a couple of new tools are available. I will update this post when my first impression is no longer dominated by sorrow on the loss of the Grunge module. Right now it feels that Snapseed lost its personality.

[Update 29-May-15] Grunge is back. Yeah!

Snapseed 1.6 was a wonderful app for the post production of photos. The interaction model matches the properties of the touch tablet without being too fancy or too dumb. It is a joy to control and witness the process in which the pixels develop into some pieces of art; my Snapseed portraits.

On my wish list: better undo or even version management. In fact Undo does not exists and Revert propels you back to the stage when the image was first opened.

Warning: If you love the current Grunge module do not update to Snapseed 2  b/c google made the unfortunate decision to remove it.
