By now mostly all of you would be aware that the latest Snapseed app has a feature called Looks, which acts like a preset, where you open a photo and tap on a Look and the effect is applied right there.
In this post, I’m going to show you how to create a custom Look and have it saved. This will be called Basic Corrections, which would be required to apply on any photo. The corrections would include, Fine Tune, Details, and Vignette (if required). You can perform any task you like and save them as a Look to be able to access those settings in one-click.
How to create a Look and save it under Looks in Snapseed:
1. Open the photo using Snapseed.
2. Tap the Tools at the bottom to access the settings to edit the photo.
3. Do some basic corrections, like increasing colour, contrast, shadows, etc.
4. Also, add some details to the photo.
5. I added a bit of vignette also to the new Look I’m going to create.
6. Apply the settings, and tap the Looks section. Scroll all the way to the right, you will notice a + sign. Tap the + sign.
7. Give this look a new name. It could be anything, if you did some edits in black and white, call it ‘My monochrome style’. I called this look as Basic Corrections.
8. Your new look will be added to the Looks section. Notice it will on the bottom strip. Every time you choose a photo, and tap this look, the same effect is going to apply. (It is like creating presets in Lightroom)
9. Next to the + sign, tap the three dots. This will allow you to manage the Looks you have created. You can either edit them, or delete them.
10. You can now export your photo.

Give it a shot!
