Wanna send snaps from your Camera Roll and not through the Snapchat camera feature? While that is possible, it’s quite a bit complicated.

Nothing impossible but, just saying, this’ll be a long guide…

Here’s how to send Snaps from your camera roll:

  1. Access your Camera Roll
  2. Select “Camera Roll”
  3. Long-tap on the picture and select “Edit”
  4. Tap on the “Share” icon
  5. Tap on “Download”
  6. Download LMK from the App Store
  7. Open the LMK
  8. Tap on the + icon, and select “Post”
  9. Select the Camera icon and select the photo you saved earlier
  10. Tap on “Post to Snapchat”

Ten steps, more or less. If you’re already confused, that’s fine – keep reading my guide, and I’ll clarify everything!

How to Send Snaps From Camera Roll?

1. Access your Camera Roll

Access Snapchat Camera Roll
Access Snapchat Camera Roll

Begin by opening Snapchat. You should be taken to the camera feature by default. It’s fine, don’t change to another page.

Instead, tap the “Memories” icon (highlighted in the screenshot above) to access your camera roll.

2. Select “Camera Roll”

Snapchat - Select “Camera Roll”
Select “Camera Roll”

Once the Memories tab opens up, make sure the “Camera Roll” category is selected. If it’s not, select it from the upper-side menu bar (see the picture above).

Then, select a picture, and keep reading:

3. Long-tap on the picture and select “Edit”

Snapchat - Edit snap
Edit Snap

You must have opened the picture by now (it’s zoomed in, I assume). Good, now hold tap on it, and a menu window should appear.

Select “Edit Snap” and read my next instructions to see what’s next:

4. Tap on the “Share” icon

You won’t need to edit anything, fortunately. Instead, look for the “Share” icon (bottom-left corner) and select it.

It’s not long before we’re done 😀

5. Tap on “Download”

Snapchat - Tap on "Download"
Tap on “Download”

In the “Share” menu, you’ll see several social media options like Facebook, Messenger, and other sharing options.

Look for the “Download” option (you may need to scroll to the right to find it) because if you want this to work, you’ll need to download the photo.

Once you download the photo, see the next steps:

6. Download LMK from the App Store

Download LMK from the App Store

Next step – open the Play Store or the Apple Store and search for LMK: Make New Friends. It’s an app that lets you send camera roll photos as snaps.

Download it, open it, and log in to it (you’ll have to create an account for this).

Then, tap on the + icon, and select “Post”.

Select the Camera icon and photo you saved earlier in the bottom-left corner (see below).

Select the Camera icon and select the photo you saved earlier
Select the Camera icon and select the photo you saved earlier

Then, tap on “Post to Snapchat”.

This will let you select a person to send the Snap to from your Snapchat list.

Once you send the picture, it’ll appear as a Snap to the other person. It’ll show as “Delivered” and “Opened”, just like another snap.

It’ll also count toward your Snap Score and Snap Streak.

So, there you have it – sending a snap that isn’t actually a snap. Let me know in the comments below what you thought of this article or if you need any more help.

My name is Alex and I have a knack for social media in all its shapes and forms. I’ve dealt with such things for quite some time and I noticed that many people have issues with social media and technicalities.

Unforeseen errors, bugs, and other problems make their use of social media problematic. These things will be discussed amply in the guides on Whizcase.

I'll present the facts as they are, and offer quick and easy solutions for them.
