So here’s the workaround to get a good new image.
As an aside, it’s great to have the flexibility to 1) go in early; 2) have a flexible-enough schedule to work slightly longer hours at the beginning of the week so that you can 3) get off at 10:30am on Friday and have time to do chores, go pray the Jummah prayer, mow the lawn, and spend hours playing with pictures and writing posts, all before dinner. Alhamdulillah.
Anyway. So then you edit:Snapseed makes it fun, like many other editing apps. I have to say that I like the big buttons. Other of my go-to apps have similar functions, but the buttons are much, much smaller.
Anyway, when you get something you like, you can save the stack if you like. Just save or save a copy as normal.
I skipped that here.
Then, choose Copy.Back in Snapseed, press ‘Open’ in the top left. If you forgot to save—or didn’t care to—Snapseed will helpfully warn you.Press ‘Open’ again, and choose ‘Paste’ from the dialog.
Then you can save away, and it will cook the edits into a new image.
The only visual indication you’ll have is that the stack count will drop to ‘0,’ but you will have a new image with all your edits baked in.
From here, you just save it, and…
So there’s the workaround.
Just one thing… Many other good, fun editing apps simply don’t require any workaround. Hopefully, Snapseed joins the ranks of apps that can save their edits.
Until then, is Snapseed good enough to mess with Workarounds?
Here in a bit, I’ll do a bit of compare/contrast between the Snapseed edit and edits from another app or two.
