How to Use Snapchat Filters

Snapchat Filters are an amazing way to add some spice to your pictures. And the good thing about them is that unlike the Snapchat lenses, you can add them after clicking the pictures. 

As you swipe left/right in the app, you would get some of the best Snapchat Filters. And you can choose the one which looks perfect. If you are still not sure about using them, follow the steps as given here.

1.       Update the App

Snapchat releases new filters very often. So, it might be a good idea to update the app before starting. This would give you a wider range of filter options.

2.       Turn the Filters On

Open it and click on “Manage” option. You will see an option “Filters”. If they are already in “On” state, just go back. Else you need to toggle them “On”.

3.        Turn your Location On

What is a Geofilter?

Snapchat also provides geofilters. These depend on your current location. Most of the times, they are city specific or the temperature specific. So when you apply a geofilter and send it across, your friends will know where you are exactly.

Is it Possible to add Multi-Filters?

Yes, if you want to try a combination of two or three filters, there is a way. Apply the first filter and then hold your picture with one finger. Then, swipe using your thumb or other finger and you will see the filters combining. A maximum of 3 filters is possible.
