Many’s favourite photo sharing app, Snapchat just received a nice little update. They are expanding their geofilter, but letting users create their own location-based filter on demand. This possibility was only available for events, but things are changing and now everyone can make their filter based on their location, regardless if it is for a party, personal needs, business needs – you name it!
Getting your own filter will cost you at least $5 and the duration of the filter is up to 30 days. The pricing depends on the size of the area, and the duration of the usage of the filter. This option is currently available in the US, UK and Canada.
To design the filter, you need to use an image editor. There are some templates available which you will be able to edit in Adobe Photoshop or Adobe Illustrator. Next, you will need to select the area, and chose the time and date when you want your geofilter to become available. And then you need to submit the geofilter, and of course, pay for it. Your submission will be reviewed and soon enough you will be able to start using your filter.
