How To Put a Snapchat Filter on a Photo
To put a Snapchat filter on a photo, tap on the “Two Cards” icon, and select the photo you want to put the filter on, then add the filter to it. However, some filters won’t work with photos, because photos are fixed and don’t move.
Yet, if you’ve added a video, all the filters will work normally.
This method is the same as the method above, but there is a slight difference, so here’s how to do it:
- Open the camera page and tap on the “Two Cards” icon;
- On the new page, tap on the “Camera Roll” to find the desired photo on the phone’s gallery;
- Tap on the photo that you want to add the Snapchat filter to edit it;
- When the editing page of the photos opens, tap on the “Three Dots”;
- Tap on “Edit Snap” to edit the photo and add the filter;
- Tap on the “Magnifier” icon then select your desired filter to apply it and post it as a Snap on Story or send it to a friend;
Keep in mind that it’s better to have a photo of a face that you want to apply the filter on.
Otherwise, you’ll end up receiving an error on Snapchat that “Something went wrong please try again later”.
You can fix this issue by simply closing the Snapchat app, then reopening it again, and restarting what you were doing recently.
Can You Put a Snapchat Filter on a Photo From Camera Roll?
Yes, it’s possible to add filters to a photo from your camera roll on Snapchat. Yet, it’s suggested to add a photo of someone, not a landscape or an object, as the Snapchat filters are mainly made to interact with faces and be applied to them.
Otherwise, you may only get the colors of the filters but not the effect of it.
For example: if you choose the butterfly lens that has a light color filter on the background, you’ll only get the background color for a photo that has objects only and not faces.
However, when you apply such type of filters to videos or photos with faces, the filter will completely work with all its elements by adding the background colors and applying the faces effects.
There are tutorials that tell you that you need to use a PC or a Laptop to download 3rd party apps and put the filters on the Snapchat videos.
These are old tutorials that still work, yet, you can alternatively do it on the Snapchat app itself.
So to put filters on the videos from your Camera Roll on Snapchat, you need to select the desired video and edit it, then tap on the “Magnifier” icon to apply your filter.
Therefore, you can post your video on Snapchat directly or save it in your phone’s gallery.
So today, you’ve learned how to put Snapchat filters on Videos and on a photo from your camera roll.
