How to Make Color Pop Photos in Snapseed


Google Photos is an amazing app for taking simple photo backups. And the cherry on top is its image editing feature out of which the Color Pop is the one that stands out. The way it accentuates the subject by keeping the actual color is remarkable. Sadly, a full-scale implementation never happened meaning that we had to depend on Google's algorithm to work its magic. Also, Photos doesn't allow the effect to be applied manually.

The algorithm picks up the compatible images on its own. This sort of left non-Pixel users in an odd place. Thankfully, Google's Snapseed has some hidden tricks that let you create color pop photos just as easily. Before we begin, let's see what Color Pop images are.

What is a Color Pop Image?

Color Pop is a filter which paints the subject in color, while the rest of the image gets a monochrome shade. This technique looks great on portrait photos and helps the subject pop out, and hence the name.

The technique is somewhat similar to Color Splash. However, instead of a specific part, the whole subject is kept in focus sharply. Now, that we have established what Color Pop is, let's see how to perform that in Snapseed.

How to Make Color Pop Photos in Snapseed

Step 1: Once you have opened the image in Snapseed, tap on the Looks tab and select either the Pop or Accentuate filter.

That will add a bit of saturation to the photo so that when you desaturate it later, the color won't look dull.

Step 2: Tap on the Tools tab and select Black & White from the menu. Select the Neutral tone and tap on Done (Tick icon at the upper-right corner). Now begins the real game.

Step 3: Once you've saved the current changes, you'll see an Undo icon next to the Information icon. That will bring up a sub-menu. Select View edits.

Step 4: All the filters that you've applied to the current picture will show up on the bottom right corner. We aim to manually revert the Black & White filter from the selected area.

So, tap on Black & White and select the Stacks Brush tool (middle icon). With the Black & White parameter set to 100, start by drawing a mask layer over your subject — the area will be denoted by red. Let me warn you that this is going to be a long and tedious process. But as they say, patience pays. And the result is truly worth it.

The trick is to draw the mask as close as to the subject's edge as possible. To do so, magnify the image multiple folds by pinching out. That also helps you work with a finer brush.

Once you have outlined, fill in the insides. Do make sure not to leave blank spaces, even the tiniest bit.

Pro Tip: Magnify the image with your free hand, so that you don't end up drawing in areas where you shouldn't.

Step 4: Once you're sure that you've drawn the mask as perfect as possible, tap on the Invert icon at the bottom ribbon. As suggestive of its name, it'll invert the mask area, so that the Black & White filter applies to the selected area.

Click on Done. Presto! You have a color pop image on your hands. Of course, the result won't be perfect at the first try, but with time and practice, you'd be churning out color pop up photos in minutes.

Pro Tip: Alternatively, you can also mask the background, if the subject is big and the background is small. This way you'd draw less. The only difference in this method is that you'd have to skip inverting the mask area and tap directly on Done.

Pick up the method, whichever suits you and the image best.

Here are some images where we created using Snapseed for Android.
