The way that the Save button in Snapseed from Google functions differs between iOS and Android devices. I explore these differences and the way that they impact your mobile image processing workflow in this tutorial. I start with the options that Snapseed for iOS offers first in this tutorial and then I dig into how things differ on an Android device.
- I strongly recommend using the Save A Copy option whenever possible if you are improving your mobile images with Snapseed on an iOS device. Choosing the Save A Copy option in Snapseed for iOs protects your original photo plus it creates a new image that includes all of your Snapseed changes. On iOS devices, you can open up this file at a later date with Snapseed and continue to improve your image without losing any of your editing flexibility.
- Snapseed on Android devices always uses a version of the Saves A Copy command. There is no option to overwrite your original image in Snapseed for Android. Unfortunately though, when Snapseed saves a copy of your work on an Android device it does not create a file that you can continue to revise. If you are using an Android device then you need to be aware that you cannot easily undo a mistake, without starting all over, after you have saved your edits and moved on to another photo in Snapseed.
