Snapchat’s birthday filter has become a popular way for users and their friends to give their birthday photographs and messages a special, festive touch.
Users will be alerted of their friends’ birthdays, encouraging them to upload happy photos using a one-day-only birthday filter. It’s quite easy to get involved in the fun!
Snapchat Birthday Feature Setup
Snapchat’s birthday feature now has two new filters available.
One adds digital confetti to photographs, while the other utilizes cake emojis to notify users when their friends’ birthdays are coming. You may also use double-tapping to send birthday greetings to your friends right away.
To use the birthday Snapchat filter, you must first turn it on in the Snapchat app.
- After you launch the app, go to “Settings.”
- Check to check whether Snapchat is up to date.
- Then choose “Birthday” from the drop-down menu.
- Click “Okay” after double-checking your birthdate.
Creating a Custom Birthday Filter
You can quickly and simply make a customized birthday filter on Snapchat’s website using a four-step process. You must first log in to access this feature.
Create your own filter by selecting “Birthdays” from the “Design Online” menu, or upload one you’ve already designed in Photoshop or Illustrator. Filters must be 1080 pixels wide by 1920 pixels high, provided as a transparent PNG file, and weigh less than 300 KB.
- Consider these dates: Beginning on your birthday, choose a 24-hour period that includes AM/PM and the date.
- On your birthday, choose a location where you may use your filter. To accomplish so, click on the map many times until a rhombus appears. The geofence’s perimeter cannot exceed 50 million square feet about 1.8 square miles.
- You’ll be asked to enter payment information for your filter after seeing the purchase summary, which might be as low as $5. Keep in mind that after you’ve submitted your geofilter, it might take several days for it to be approved.
- To ensure that Snapchat accepts your filter, don’t include websites, photos of people, street addresses, profanity, obscene images, last names, or hashtags. Depending on Snapchat’s approval, you may start applying your custom birthday filter at the time and location you choose.
Celebrate in Style
Whether you recall your loved ones’ birthdays or forget until the last minute, Snapchat has you covered.
