If you’re wondering how your Snapchat friends have gotten so damn creative, well wonder no more, because we’re here to teach you how to become a filter master with very little effort. These Snapchat hacks are going to have your story totting up the views in no time!

1. Apply 3 Filters on a Single Snap

I don’t know about you but I always get annoyed when I can’t add the temperature at the same time as a filter. Adding up to three filters can make your photos look pretty stylish on your story. So what exactly is going on and how do you add up to three filters on one snap?

All you have to do to enable this feature is choose your first filter, then hold it down with one finger while you scroll with the next. This makes it easy to have two filters at the same time. If you can hold down the next two filters, you can choose from a third. Now you can make yourself look totally groovy with a filter while also showing where you are. I literally use this all the time.

2. Phone Zoom in Feature to Draw Detailed Designs

This one is for the artists of Snapchat. Do you ever pause and ponder how people draw those intricate designs on Snapchat. Well it’s about to get a lot easier.

All you have to do is go Accessibility on your phone, enable the zoom and show controller. Then you can set it to the highest setting which will enable you to make the next Mona Lisa of Snapchat.

3. Turn an Emoji into a Colourful Filter

Big emoji lover? I know I am! Now you can make your filter the colour of your emoji. An awesome way to get cool new colours into your Snapchat palette. All you need to do is choose an emoji that you love the colour of. Then move it to the corner of your screen and increase the size of it until it is all over your screen making you the beautiful rainbow colour you always wanted.

4. Pin an Emoji on a Moving Target

Do you want the dancing hot dog to follow your dog around as you snap it? Then this trick is perfect. I always wondered how people timed it so well, when really it’s just a trick and now you can know too!

Once you’ve recorded your video, you just add an emoji, resize it to the size you want, tap it in the place you want and hold it. Now it’s going to follow the unsuspecting target around and make your videos, 10 times cooler! If you feel like getting a little locco with the dancing hot dog, check out this compilation video for some inspiration.

5. Edit Things out of your Snaps with Magic Eraser

Do you want somebody not to see something in the background of your Snapchat? Well now you can erase it with this hack, easy peasy! Tap the scissors icon and the multi star button. Trace the outline of the object you want to disappear and BAM, it’s gone, nobody will ever know. This trick works best with simple backgrounds in the back so it’s a good idea to keep that in mind.

6. Add an Artistic look to Photos in Memories

This really is an awesome hack as you can choose from different paintings or backgrounds to make your memories look like they just came out of a museum. It is simple and easy too.

Press and hold on one of the pictures from your memory, select the paintbrush icon and choose one of the artistic filters and send to all your friends because they will want to know how you made this amazing look.
