Snapchat’s Geofilters

Some time ago Snapchat has released its Geofilters to everyone. Now you are able to add a filter to your snaps based on where you are. All you have to do is walk into the place, snap a picture and swipe right to preview screen. You’ll find your location specific filters there. Say you’re in Paris or Venice; the Serengeti or at your local burger joint; just keep swiping right to find the one that fits!

First though, you need to have your location on. This can be done quickly in your device’s settings. Next, open snapchat and go to settings in the top right corner. Tap manage and toggle on Filters. There you go. You can now easily access them. Snapchat may eventually monetize Geofilters by placing ads in them that are based on where you are.

You can create your own Geofilters and submit them on the Snapchat website. Get your neighbourhood, school, local landmark, wedding or business its own Geofilter if you’re feeling up to it. Go to and select the type of filter you want to submit, (community, personal or business) and upload it in web-optimised PNG format. You can design it on your own if you’re good with Adobe Illustrator or Photoshop. After that, select the dates you want your filter to run from the calendar. On-demand Geofilters can run between one hour and 30 days.
Next, you’ll need to select the area in which your Geofilter will be active and draw a fence around it on the map provided. Your location should be on so that the map can automatically find your location. On the same page, submit your name, email address and tell them why the location is meaningful to you. Then you’ll go to a payment page where you can confirm your order.

Or you can have professionals do it for you. That is why we started our company Finefilterz. We are offering 100% custom Geofilters to make your event or business unique.
