Snapchat recently launched a simpler way for users of the app to make Geofilters– however, the new method has a lot of limitations. Besides it just having a handful of designs, you can’t make Geofilters if you’re outside of the United States… until now!
In this post, we are going to explain how to make a Snapchat Geofilter in Saudi Arabia. You’ll be glad to know that this method is surprisingly simple. Finally, a way to make a Geofilter for Snapchat in just 5 minutes- no Photoshop skills needed.
Let’s dive right into this making a Snapchat Geofilter in Saudi Arabia.
How to make a Snapchat Geofilter in Saudi Arabia
STEP 1: Getting Started
To make a Geofilter for Snapchat in Saudi Arabia, you’ll need to get started by clicking here to get the FilterPop iOS app.
STEP 2: Pick a Border
Once you’ve downloading FilterPop, you will want to pick a border to use on your design. For this example, we are going to use a birthday graphic. The graphic below is a fun combination of cupcakes, gradients and other birthday effects.
STEP 3: Add Some Text
Now that you have your border picked out, you’re going to want to add custom text to your Geofilter graphic. For the example below, we went pretty minimal and just used two different fonts to write “Alex’s Birthday.” We then clicked “Save” to move to Step 4.
STEP 4: Set the Time, Date, and Duration
One of the most important steps (besides location) is setting the time, duration, and date that your Geofilter should display in Snapchat. We picked 12 hours in the example below:
STEP 5: Set the Location
Setting the location is one of the most important parts of the Geofilter creation process- since Geofilters only work in a specific location. Double or triple check this when you set the location… it’s super important! In our example, I set the Geofilter to go live near a mall called “Space Mall” in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia.
STEP 6: Confirm Details and Send to Snapchat!
You’re now on the final step! This is where you send your Geofilter graphic to Snapchat! Check your Geofilter details carefully. Make sure you have the right time, date, spelling, and what-not correct on your graphic. If everything looks correct, just press “Purchase Geofilter” and your graphic is automatically sent to Snapchat for you to enjoy!
Using Your Snapchat Geofilter in Saudi Arabia
In Saudi Arabia, or any country where Geofilters can be discovered, we recommend making sure that you have strong wifi and cell signal- along with strong battery power. When you have a good connection and strong battery, it becomes much easier for your phone to determine your location.
