Smartphone Photo Apps Assignment
The smartphone camera has revolutionized the world of photography.   

Your iPhone takes beautiful photos, but the right apps can make them even better. Most photographers accept post-production as a part of their workflow, but a lot of the time our smartphone images miss out on this important step.

There's no shortage of photo editing apps for the smartphone, and most of you frequently use photo-based social media such as Instagram. While Instagram may be among the most popular photo-based apps, it is not where smartphone creative photo editing ends.  It can be interesting to experiment with other photo editing applications too. 

Here's an article that describes “5 iPhone Apps That Turn Your Photos Into Drawings and Sketches." You may be familiar with some of the apps described in this article, but experimenting with different apps can give your smartphone photography a different look. For this assignment, I want you to experiment with Snapseed, or another free photo app -something other than Instagram.


Here's a brief Snapseed intro

THE ASSIGNMENT -WHAT TO DO •STEP 1
Download free version of either Snapseed or another free photo editing photo app on your smartphone, and use it for this assignment.

Snapseed is a popular photo app that gives you the ability to transform your photos... Is a free app that Works on both iOS and Android. In addition to several filters, which Snapseed refers to as Looks, there's a number of editing tools to choose from. These range from the basics, to perspective shifts, selective coloring, instant HDR, extensive monochrome filters and options.

The app is easy to use too. Just drag left and right to adjust a parameter's strength, or drag up and down to change which parameter you're using.

WHAT TO DO •STEP 2
Shoot a minimum of 20 images, then apply one of the Snapseed (or other filters) to change the look of your photos.  Try a variety of filters on some of your favorite photos. After applying the filter to your images, pick your two favorites, send them to yourself, and submit them in the proper folder in the photo server.
