MOBILE PHOTOGRAPHY TIPS Snapseed

Save High or Full resolution photos post editing using latest Snapseed

Do not resize photo
Written by Antony Pratap

I recently observed there is a bit of quality lack in the image that is being exported using Snapseed post processing. I went through all the settings the new version had to offer and found this setting where by default Snapseed compresses the jpg image quality. This could be to save memory on your mobile. In my case I have more than enough memory and I always prefer a full size High definition image. Below are the instructions of how to enable Snapseed to enable full resolution while saving your image.
