Perhaps, one of the most loved thing about Snapchat is its creative, interactive, and fun filters that can make any selfie experience anything but ordinary. These filters range from cute dog and cats to specific effects that sometimes associate with our favorite movies, tv shows, and cartoon characters.

Most people use Snapchat because it’s hip, trendy, and it helps us look our best using some of its filters.

How to use Snapchat Filters

Because of Snapchat being new and having a different interface from other staple social media sites like Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram, many people still find it confusing – how to use Snapchat, then how to use Snapchat filters.

For those who don’t know how to use the Snapchat filters, worry no more!

STEP 1: Take a photo

To use a Snapchat filter, you’ll have to take a photo on either of your phone’s cameras on the Snapchat app and swipe left or right once you’ve taken the image.

Note: Before you take your picture, you can also wait for the face filters to load. Then you can choose between all of their animated effects that can detect your face movements and go along with it.

STEP 2: Choose your filter

After taking a photo, all you have to do is swipe right to look at the different filters available to you, including options that pull through the current time and your current speed.

There are also geofilters available to use for your pictures. These overlays cover famous locations and cities and/or events. Most big urban areas now have a filter of their own.

STEP 3: Send your snaps

When you’re finally finished taking the best photo, you can simply post it by clicking the blue arrow that’s on the bottom right corner of your phone. Then, you can choose “my story” to make it visible to all of your friends or choose a specific friend to send your snap.
