iPad App of the Year Snapseed lands on the Mac App Store

Snapseed for iOS is among the indispensable image editing apps for avid photographers on the go. With a vast selection of professional-grade filters and cool effects, its attractive user interface and editing tools such as Grunge, Vintage and Drama, no wonder Apple named Snapseed the iPad App of the Year 2011 in its annual iTunes Rewind 2011 selection.

The Mac version brings all these features and more on your desktop, featuring tools such as Auto Correct and Selective Adjust for precise editing. You can quickly touch up photographs in low-light conditions and adjust the white balance, saturation and contrast, add various image borders, crop, straighten and rotate your images, apply a bunch of filters and special effects and share your work on Facebook and Flickr.

If you enjoyed FX Photo Studio Pro for Mac (review), this one is a must-have. Snapseed is a $20 download from the Mac App Store. The program supports both Mac OS 10.6.8 and 10.7.2. Nik Software, the company behind Snapseed, also announced it will “soon” port the program to Tegra-powered Android tablets running Ice Cream Sandwich. Surprisingly enough, Nik Software plans to price Snapseed for Android at just $5. The full press release notes are available after the break:
