How to

Create and Use Custom Snapchat Filters

Have you ever thought of a filter that you like to use on Snapchat? Have you ever seen a person using a Snapchat filter that you have no idea how to get? Well, this guide will launch you to the amazing world of custom Snapchat filters.

There are several times when I have ever seen a filter that I had no idea how that person got. However, I move through already loaded filters seeing for it to no avail. You can submit your own filters you’ve made. But there is also a gallery having filters that other people on Snapchat have made for your personal use. It’s a wonderful feature that Snapchat provides.

Making Custom Snapchat Filters

Make sure to start off creating a new filter will cost you money. The total is dependent on the amount of time the filter is available, and the whole place that the filter is available in.

But before that, let’s explain how you begin making a filter (or lens). Initially, you have to hit on the screen, just like you make the preloaded filters appear. When the filters menu pops up, simply move all the way to the end of the filters. Here you can tap the + symbol.

However, a screen appears telling you to purchase your own custom filters and lenses. There will be a choice to begin. If you want to continue, simply tap the “Get Started” button.

Afterward, two options will be available. Either you can create a filter or a lease. For example, Come let’s create a Spring Vibes filter. So, I’ll tap filters, and then tap Spring Vibes at the top. Once selected they will present you using an example of what the filter will seem like. If you’re glad about the product, tap the checkmark.

The app also calculates the original price of the filter depending on the start date and time also the end date and time. Not just this but also it calculates the total cost depending on the size of your geolocation border. This geolocation specifies where the filter will be available to people. When the Snapchat calculated the price of the filter, you can confirm your filter.

You will also view an overview of your order. After confirming the information you’re viewing is correct, you can simply tap Next and you’ll be able to use the filter once created.

The Gallery of Filters

Come let’s talk about getting lenses and filters that others have created. If you move to the bottom of the screen under the preloaded filters. However, you’ll view a little magnifying glass. This is the “explore” choice where you can choose from a huge variety of lenses and filters.

Another amazing thing you can do is use filters you can view other people using. Come let’s say you’re going using someone’s story, and they have a filter you like to use. Under the screen, there will be a button that displays the filter they’re using. If you don’t view that button because they’ve either connect a link as well or tagged someone. However, you can also slide up on their story.


As you can view there are lots of fun options when it comes to the filters on Snapchat. Since it’s launch, Snapchat added many amazing features that enables for wider use of their camera. Filters are a fun aspect of what Snapchat has available. So go out,  take pictures, add filters and go crazy! Have fun with your new amazing filters.
