How to Create Your Own Snapchat Filters on App:

Follow the steps below:

Step 1: Open Snapchat and select the filter icon

You can also create filters on the Snapchat application. Filters are created by transforming regular images. Snapchat has recently added options and tools on the app that can be used for customizing your filter. It’s easier to create filters on the Snapchat app rather than using Geofilters to do the same. 

To create filters using Snapchat, you need to make sure that you’ve updated the app to its latest version from the Google Play Store or App Store. If you’re using an older version, then you won’t be able to create filters on it. 

Open the Snapchat application and login into your account by entering the correct credentials. Then you’ll be presented with the camera screen. On the right side of the capture button, you’ll get the Filter icon sighted as a smiley face. Click on it. 

Click on Filter icon

Step 2: Tap on Create Button

After clicking on the filter icon, you’ll be presented with the existing filters on Snapchat. Below the filters, you’ll be able to see some options displayed next to one another. From the displayed options, you’ll need to be on the Create button that’s at the bottom left of the screen.

Scroll through the options  provided at the bottom by swiping them to the left to see the customization features 

Step 3: Customize Your Filter & Save

 As you’re scrolling through the customization options to customize your filter, you’ll be able to get the option to upload pictures from the gallery to create filters. If you want to use bitmoji on the filter you’re creating, use the bitmoji customization feature to do that. 

If you scroll towards the end of the options by swiping them to the right, you’ll be able to get customization options to upload videos for the filter you’re creating. 

After you’re done customizing your filter using pictures or video, use it to take the snap by clicking on the capture. 

Once you’re done taking the snap, add effects and warmth to the snap by swiping to the left on the snap and then clicking on Save to save the image

Frequently Asked Questions:

1. How to create a Snapchat filter for an event?

If you want to create a Snapchat filter for any kind of event, you can use GeoFilters to do that. You can also use the Snapchat app to create filters using photos and videos from your gallery. But as the options to create filters on the Snapchat app are quite limited, it’s better to use GeoFilters as they provide you with a wide range of options to do that. 

2. Why Your Custom Made Geolocation filter is not available to someone else?

If your custom-made filter isn’t available to some people, they are probably living outside the allowed area. You should know that the filter you create is available only in a geographical area between  20,000 and 5,000,000 square feet of your selected location. The users who are living outside it will not be able to get your filter to use it to take snaps.
