  • Tap on the section you want removed to retouch your image. It will produce a red area showing where to make the changes. You can see a portion of the surrounding region replacing the area. The Snapseed healing method doesn’t allow you to select the exact position of the area being replaced so it can take a little practice.
  • Tap the back button on the bottom screen, to go back a move, and undo the last healing edit. If you decide that you like the edit, tap the forward button to return the edit to the image.
