How to Use Snapchat Filters:
It is quite simple to use the filters that are present in the Application. Now there are many Snapchat filters which need permission to access the user location. For example, the filters like Time and Temperature need to have accessibility to the user’s current location. So if you are trying to use such Snapchat Geo-filters keeping the Location Services off, you will get a prompt message asking you to Turn ON the location services.
The available Snapchat filters mainly include –
Snapchat Data Filters: This helps in providing some detailing part to the picture or video that has been taken. In this, the filters include Temperature, Battery Life, Date & Time & Displays the speed of you or vehicle in motion. Some of the filters that come under this category need the Location Services permission turned ON.
Snapchat Geo-Filters: This filter is used for displaying the current location and place. In this, we have 3 types of categories.
- First, one includes the city name. Just the name will be placed over the snap.
- The second one represents a big group of people. Such logos are approved by Snapchat Filters but are not the branded ones.
- And the last one is the On-Demand category which includes the branded logos approved by the App. This filter is restricted to that particular geographical location.
Snapchat Filters for Videos: Filters for videos include the possible edits that you can make a video. Some of them are listed below
- Rewind: Move the video as well as the sound in backwards
- Faster Fast Forward : To play the video at the maximum speed possible. It also speeds up the sound by double.
- Fast Forward: This Snapchat Filter speeds up the video but lesser than that of the Faster Fast Forward.
- Slow motion: By the name itself you can understand. This will slow down the original speed by including the audio within the video.
Snapchat Color Filters: In this you can use different shades of colors on your snaps. Some of them are Black & White, Sepia, Saturation, etc.
To use them you need to just swipe on the screen to the left or right; you will get a list of Snapchat filters that can be applied to the snap. Enjoy Filtering!

Snapchat Geofilters are going to become a big source of revenue for the App owner. In a period of 2 years, I won’t be surprised if I found a numerous number of filters people have created. Now also, even when I visit any place, I get to see 3-4 custom filters that have been created by random people.
Know everything about Snapchat Custom Geofilters:
Right now, Snapchat is letting it’s users to use the filters at $5.1 per 20k sq feet for 1 hour. You can upload the Snapchat Geofilter through the official website using your Account.
For creating a custom Snapchat Geofilter, you need to follow 4 basic steps. They are as follows
- Create your own Snapchat filter: get the help of someone who is good at designing part. There are some conditions that need to be followed for the type of the filter you are going to make. They are some limit regarding the dimensions that are allowed, file size restrictions and the file format of the picture you are going to upload should be in png.
- Place the filter on the website and set some time range
- Set the target area in which you want the geo-filter to be available
- Some finish that are needed.
After these steps, you are ready to go with your Snapchat filter creation. But don’t forget one thing. The time and date cannot be changed after the filter has been submitted. If you still want to change it, you need to delete created one and submit it again with the needed time and date (according to the location you are right now).
How to Bring Snapchat Filter Effects:
In this, we can apply more than one type of filter or effect on a particular snap. Using one Snapchat filter effect is mostly common among the users, but the app provides this feature of giving double and also a triple time of filtering on a picture that you have just created.
Now mostly on iPhone, this feature is available. This update came around in December. You can apply almost 5 types of filters on a single snap. This added feature really attracted many people because most editing apps don’t allow the users to apply more than 1 filter.
We have seen all the types of Snapchat filters that are provided in App. But the most exciting part is that you can also use the Lenses feature and the filters together!
For double filtering, any snap, just takes a snap, swipe towards right or left to apply one filter. Then for 2nd filter, keep one finger holding on the screen and swipe with another finger the same way; towards left or right. You will see that 2nd Snapchat filter is also applied on the same snap. And for triple filtering just repeat the process in the same manner for the 2nd time.
In this among four categories of filters, you can use only one of them. Snapchat separates them in the following way:
Front camera filters, stamps, geo-filters, and different colour shades.
