A new Snapchat update lets you create your own Snapchat Geofilters for a party or your business to add a great look to your Snapchat photos and videos when you’re in a specific location.
This guide will show you how to use Snapchat’s geofilters to add a special layer over your photo or video before sharing a Snap. You can also combine them with Snapchat Lenses and other features that help you make your creations stand out.
A Snapchat geofilter can only be used in a specific area. It may be a very small area, or it may be several blocks. You must already be in the area to use the Snapchat geofilter. So far, we don’t know of any way to trick Snapchat into letting you use a geofilter from somewhere else.
Snapchat’s geofilter tool isn’t new, but the option to create your own for $5 is. You can follow the instructions in the Snapchat Design Center to create your own custom geofilter. You choose the design, location, and then buy it for $5 or more. Please note that Snapchat takes one day to review your submission before it is posted.
How to use Snapchat geofilters
It’s very simple to use Snapchat geofilter to enhance your photo. You can do it on iPhone or Android, and it’s free to use a geofilter. If you want to use in addition to a Snapchat lens, make sure you use that first.
Take a Snapchat photo or video and you’re now ready to apply a Snapchat geofilter.
You can apply multiple filters to Snapchat photos and videos, but you can only apply one geofilter in our experience.
Swipe from left to right and you’ll see the available Snapchat geofilters. In our case, only two are available. Once you find the one you want to use, you can submit the plugin.
If you also want to stack a filter or other Snapchat options, you can do so by touching the screen with one finger and swiping with the other. The following video explains how it works.
