Snapseed 1.4 adds support for iPad Retina display, iOS 5.1

updated 12:10 pm EDT, Thu April 19, 2012

Introduces new B&W, Center Focus effects

Nik has updated the iOS edition Snapseed, its popular photo-editing tool. The software allows for basic- to mid-level editing of RAW, JPEG, and TIFF files, sized as big as 20.25 megapixels on the third-generation iPad. Snapseed 1.4 supports the new iPad's Retina display, as well as iOS 5.1 devices in general.

Completed images can now be exported to Instagram for sharing; a related bugfix removes unexpected lines in images with a 1:1 crop. The app's Black & White module has new algorithms, color filters, and presets, while the Center Focus mode lets users adjust the brightness of both the inside and outside rings in vignetting effects. As with B&W, new presets can save time.

The Crop tool sports a new 7:5 ratio for 5x7 printing, and language options have been expanded to include Arabic and Brazilian Portugese. Snapseed costs $5, and requires devices capable of running iOS 4.2 or better.

    This is one of the best iPad apps ever. Great to see retina display support.
