Despite all the controversies out there, I’m here to tell you that yes, you can put Snapchat filters on videos from the camera roll.
Here’s how I did it:
- Open Snapchat
- Tap on the “Rectangles” icon
- Select a picture
- Tap on the “Pen” icon
- Tap on the “Filters” icon
- Add a filter
- Send the picture to a friend
Seven simple steps for taking your Snapchat game to the next level. What’s not to like? Check my detailed guide below for additional help following these steps!
1. Tap on the “Rectangles” icon
With Snapchat opened, you should be automatically sent to the camera feature. That’s fine – look for the “Gallery” icon (check the picture above to see how it looks) and select it.
2. Select a photo
Selecting the “Gallery” icon will take you to the camera roll, where you’ll see all your recent photos. Select the one you want to edit and proceed!
3. Tap on the “Pen” icon
After selecting the phot, DON’T send it to anyone just yet (the yellow button looks enticing, I know). Instead, tap the Pen icon in the bottom-left corner.
4. Tap on the “Filters” icon
After tapping on the “Pen” icon, several options will appear on the right side of the app. Among them is the magnifying glass (with a star on top) icon – go select it.
5. Select a filter
Welcome to the filter emporium – Snapchat’s finest effects, frames, filters, and so on. Select a category from the top and then select a filter. You’ll see it take effect almost immediately.
6. Post the photo
If you’re satisfied with the filter and want to send the photo to someone or post it as a story, then continue with the process.
And now you’re done – filter applied, and you learned a new method to edit pre-made Snapchat photos. Let me know in the comments below what you thought about this guide!
