4 Rating: 4 - 10,571 votes

If you want to install and use the Snapseed app on your PC or Mac, you will need to download and install a Desktop App emulator for your computer. We have worked diligently to help you understand how to use Snapseed for your computer in 4 simple steps below:



Step 1: Download an Android emulator for PC and Mac

Ok. First things first. If you want to use the application on your computer, first visit the Mac store or Windows AppStore and search for either the Bluestacks app or the Nox App . Most of the tutorials on the web recommends the Bluestacks app and I might be tempted to recommend it too, because you are more likely to easily find solutions online if you have trouble using the Bluestacks application on your computer. You can download the Bluestacks Pc or Mac software here


Step 2: Install the emulator on your PC or Mac

Now that you have downloaded the emulator of your choice, go to the Downloads folder on your computer to locate the emulator or Bluestacks application.
Once you have found it, click it to install the application or exe on your PC or Mac computer.
Now click Next to accept the license agreement.
Follow the on screen directives in order to install the application properly.
If you do the above correctly, the Emulator app will be successfully installed.


Step 3: Snapseed for PC - Windows 7/8 / 8.1 / 10

Now, open the Emulator application you have installed and look for its search bar. Once you found it, type Snapseed in the search bar and press Search. Click on Snapseed application icon. A window of Snapseed on the Play Store or the app store will open and it will display the Store in your emulator application. Now, press the Install button and like on an iPhone or Android device, your application will start downloading. Now we are all done.
You will see an icon called "All Apps".
Click on it and it will take you to a page containing all your installed applications.
You should see the Snapseed icon. Click on it and start using the application.


Step 4: Snapseed for Mac OS

Hi. Mac user!
The steps to use Snapseed for Mac are exactly like the ones for Windows OS above. All you need to do is install the Nox Application Emulator or Bluestack on your Macintosh. The links are provided in step one

  • Crashing for the first time

    3
    By Deeashley
    This is by far my most used app. Every photo I edit on my phone and iPad goes through this app. So far, I’ve applauded every update as making a nearly perfect app even closer to perfect as one could hope for. I don’t want that to change, but if the crashing doesn’t get fixed, that changes everything. This is the first time I’ve ever had to deal with this issue in Snapseed. Honestly, I don’t think this app even crashed once until the last major update (custom saved edits), which I use often. I realize that the broad abilities of this app make it, by necessity, resource intensive. I just hope that the crashes don’t become the norm because I’d rather NOT have all the cool new features if I can’t count on the app to be reliable and consistent. I just wasted another 30 minutes of my life because Snapseed crashed again. I don’t want to start having to question this app’s reliability, but trusting in this app not to crash in the middle of a project is becoming more difficult do. Google’s apparent interest overall in customer feedback has been spotty at best in the past, but I REALLY hope that the powers that be will take the time to address this potential deal-breaker of an issue. I would hate for these crashes to outweigh this awesome app’s usefulness! Please fix this! My iOS is current and I’m on the iPad Pro and iPhone X (both devices have suffered the same issue several times recently).
  • Adding free form focus points!!!

    By ItNeedsMediaplayersupport
    I really love using this app to edit all my photos. I’m rating 4 stars, to possibly grab your attention on a few new suggestions to add into the apps editing features. First, I think adding a free form focus area in the Lens Blur instead of shapes would be AMAZING. Along with that adding the ability to not just have one focal point, but multiple focal pints, while still being able to blur out the background or things the editor doesn’t want the photo to focus on. Another new feature you should add to this app should be to have a onscreen convenient undo/redo buttons while using any tool in the app; that way the editor won’t have to continuously click in and out of the tool in order to make an alter to an edit or to fix a mistake. I realize there’s an erasing tool, but when you have much to edit and a list of other photos you plan to edit as well, it is time consuming; not to mention that many people using there fingers to edit will likely cause a mistake to worsen by using the eraser tool, which is well - another negative. - Anyways I really do hope someone who can add these two features read my review, and will actually consider adding these two features. I guarantee it will make many people happy. -Overall though, this photo editing app is AMAZING and I highly recommend using it!!!
  • A Must-Have App For All Serious Photographers

    By Paul in NJ
    This is one of a very select number of apps that appear on my coveted front page. Its ability to smartly select areas for selective retouching is uncannily accurate; its Structure feature beats anything Photoshop can do; and its Ambience tool provides a wonderful combination of brightness, shadow opening, warmth, and even incredible highlight protection all at once. On top of that are regularly-introduced enhancements like the Curves tool, and the incredible White Balance tool which allows you to see your eyedropper effect in real time as you drag it around your image – a huge advantage I have not seen in any other mobile app or even desktop program. On top of all of this, there are other miraculous effects that seem to be added every other week that are too numerous to delineate here but are absolutely worth exploring. My only two wishes are that 1) a clone tool be added; and 2) there were even more options in the Selective and Brush Tools. Still, I recommend this app without reservation.
  • Worked great, until it didn’t

    3
    By Adoragurl
    I must start by saying that I love Snapseed. I have used it for several months taking inventory photos for my business and it has worked great for me, until it didn’t. I’m not sure what happened, if it update messed with the settings, or what. When I use the text filter it used to work great, now when I use it the words are so tiny that they are barely visible. I have googled everything I can to try to find a fix to this as well as searching within the settings of the app to see if I can change the text size, but with the exception of making the bubble that I’m putting the text in extremely large, I can find no other fix. Also, I have edited hundreds of photos with Snapseed only to wake up one day and ALL of my photos are back to their unedited state. Thankfully I have most of them uploaded to my computer or I would have had to redo them all. Very disappointing. I’m hoping any future updates to the app will fix this and the text functionality because until that happens this app is essentially useless to me and I love this app.

  • It freezes and eats up the battery!

    By Nanda Becca
    I give it 3 stars because when it’s working it’s a good app but most of the time it’s freezes and it’s up the battery! And not to mention the countless times it crashes in between!
  • Add blur to selective tool! :)

    4
    By {Oakly}
    I really love this app. I use it to tune all my photos. The selective tool is a standout feature. I’ll use it for whitening teeth and removing skin blemishes, or coloring a sky without affecting the color of the ground. The blur is something that’s not so useful because it’s defined to certain shapes. If blur was part of the selective tool set, then this app would be 5 stars.
  • Great tool but missing Fuji RAW support

    3
    By conrad2k
    I would give it 5 stars if it could develop a Fuji RAW file, as it can with Nikon, Canin and others. If iOS supports Fuji RAW natively, why can’t Snapseed?
  • Needs a compatibility update

    By dalums
    Snapseed is my go-to image editor for iPad Pro, and I’ve tried them all. But I can’t open a raw file from my Nikon D7500. Thus the 4 star rating.
  • Awesome and Easy

    I've never loved an app so much that I'd volunteer even a sec of my time to go rate it but, I feel grateful for this app!
  • Lame

    I bought this and I’d rather use Adobe Lightroom any day over this app. Used it once, and I had to immediately uninstall. Bogus. Don’t waste your time, just get Adobe Lightroom.
  • I’m in Love, I’m in Love!

    By AuntBoogie
    I have been using Snapseed for MANY years; it is the longest-reigning photo editing app in my iLife. Over the years I have tried so many photo apps that seemed promising from their description, but wound up not delivering the goods. The lone survivor of many cullings of my photo apps herd, Snapseed is tried and true! The fact that I am able to edit a photo and then Save the new edited version OVER the original version (by Allowing the app to ‘Modify’) is the reason why I fell in love with the Snapseed app. I am able to write a note or add a label on a photo and then save it without creating a new needless copy and, most importantly, without moving the photo from its original spot in my timeline. This allows my edited photos to remain alongside any untouched photos, in their originally captured order. This simple yet invaluable feature is what makes Snapseed a standout for me! I do wish we could open a chosen photo in Snapseed directly from the Photos app (either via (a) the ‘Edit’ button ‘...’ Activities, or (b) the ‘Share’ button Activities). And honestly, if you were to add a ‘TOOL’ that allows us to draw (and then move/resize/reshape/rotate) lines, arrows and maybe even squares (shapes), you would become the HOLY GRAIL of photo editing apps! I would [figuratively] shout praises of your name from the mountaintops!!! I am always excited and never disappointed when you release an update! Keep up the AMAZING work!!!
  • Best free photo editor

    By jacquelinerosalie
    Pretty much what the title says. This is a fantastic app. I’m not a photographer or anything but I run an Instagram account and this makes my photos look like they weren’t just taken on an iPhone lol. Really user friendly. Also like that my images don’t seem to have reduced quality after they’re edited/saved like in some other apps.
  • Ultimate editing app!

    This is my go to for fixing up my photos! I use Afterlight 2 and VSCO for some small things, but I use this for almost everything I do and it is amazing!
  • Crashing Upon Saving

    2
    By tracyzimmer
    What has happened, Snapseed? This is/was my favorite app for photo editing. In the past several days, every time I work on a photo, and click save or export, the app crashes and I lose all my work. And then I do this over and over- but now I give up. It’s frustrating. Such a waste of time. Can you please fix this bug.
