Google pulls plug on desktop version of Snapseed


Google has announced it will no longer sell the desktop version of its Snapseed image editing application for both Windows and Mac. Existing customers will continue receive support and updates. The company will continue to offer the Snapseed mobile app on iOS and Android. In a blog post, the company has announced, as a part of its ‘spring cleaning’ it has decided to shut down Snapseed and Google Reader, among other products.

Google’s official statement

Beginning today we’ll no longer sell or provide updates for Snapseed Desktop for Macintosh and Windows. Existing customers will continue to be able to download the software and can contact us for support. We’ll continue to offer the Snapseed mobile app on iOS and Android for free.

 We reviewed the desktop version of Snapseed last year. Check it out here.



I was looking for it yesterday. Now I know.


Integrate in picasa please

Snapseed came out early as one of the most powerful and versatile image editing apps on mobile devices. On desktops, however, there are already popular programs that offer far more functionality at not much higher price. Therefore, I think that sales of the desktop versions were lackluster. Google is trying to push folks into using G+, where it already includes some of the same type of image editing that Snapseed offers.


Which ones? I really like Snapseed’s “Retrolux.”


They just bought it for the mobile versions, they rest they didn’t care.


Why did google have both snapseed and picassa in the first place? I understand they have some different features, but why not just integrate them?


Buy and destroy!

A strategy I never understood…

I guess we all kind of knew it was coming when NIK was sold.
