Part 2 of 2: Use Snapchat

Make a Snapchat Account Step 13

Step 1. Take a photo that expresses how you feel

Take a photo that expresses how you feel and share it for fun. Once your account is activated and your friends added, you can start sending snaps right away. To take a photo, go to the main Snapchat screen, which is almost identical to your smartphone's camera. Press the big button at the very bottom to take a photo and keep your finger on it for a few seconds to record a short video.

Make a Snapchat Account Step 14

Step 2. Edit the photo

After taking a photo, you can edit it in a number of ways.

  • Add a caption by tapping the screen once. Your keyboard will appear and you can add a caption or a message to your photo.
  • You can draw on the photo by tapping the pencil icon in the upper right corner of the screen. A colored bar will appear. You can drag it up or down to change the color of your pencil.
  • You can add stickers, emojis, or bitmojis. Press the stickers button at the top of the screen (it looks like a folded sticker sheet next to the "T"). Drag the list left or right to view the different categories. Swipe down to see the selection. Tapping an emoji will make it appear in the photo and you can move it anywhere you like with your finger. You can add as many stickers as you want to your snaps.
  • You can create a sticker. Tap the scissor icon at the top of the screen and use your finger to highlight any part of the video (such as a person's face). You then get a sticker that you can move around any part of the screen with your finger.
  • You can change the filter or add the time, temperature and capture speed by swiping your finger to the left.
Make a Snapchat Account Step 15

Step 3. Choose the duration of your snaps

By default, snaps remain visible for 3 seconds. You can change this duration by tapping on the timer in the lower left corner of the screen. A menu will appear to allow you to select the duration (between 1 and 10 seconds).

Make a Snapchat Account Step 16

Step 4. Send the photo

Send the photo or add it to your Story. Send the photo by pressing the arrow button at the bottom right of the screen. Your contact list will be displayed.

  • Select the recipients of your snap by pressing their username. Then press the arrow button at the bottom right of the screen to send it.
  • Go to the page of Cat to see the status of your snap ("sent", "pending" or "delivered").
  • You can also send the snap to My Story, an option displayed above your contact list. These are the photos and videos that you added in the last 24 hours. After this time, they disappear. By default, everyone in your contact list can view your story an unlimited number of times. Swipe the photo screen to the left and press ⚙️ in the upper right corner to limit the audience for your story.

Step 5. Use Lenses

Tap anywhere on your photo screen to use Lenses. Lenses is an option that uses facial recognition to animate and add effects to your snap. It only works on iPhone 4s or newer and devices running Android 4.3 or newer.

  • Activate Lenses before taking a photo or video.
  • If Lenses does not activate, your device may not be compatible.
  • Slide your finger to the left to see the different effects available. Some display instructions like "open your mouth" or "raise your eyebrows", which will cause another animation to appear. Effects in Lenses are displayed alternately, so some are not always available.
  • Take a photo or tap the screen for a few seconds to record a video. You can send it like any other snap.
Make a Snapchat Account Step 18

Step 6. Open messages

Tap the bubble Cat in the lower left corner of the screen to display the cat. Tap the sender's username to view the snap, video, or message.

  • Note that once you open the message, a timer will start. Once at zero, you will no longer be able to see the snap.
  • You can select the snap again before exiting the screen. If you exit the screen of cat, it will no longer be possible.
  • The only way around this problem is to take a screenshot when the photo is displayed on your device. This will be saved in your photo gallery. The sender will receive a notification if you take a screenshot of their snap.
Make a Snapchat Account Step 19

Step 7. Block your contacts

If you want to block someone (to prevent them from sending you snaps or seeing your story), scroll through your contact list and tap their username. Then press the ⚙️ icon that appears next to it. You will see another menu prompting you to block or remove the person.

  • If you remove the person, they will no longer be in your contact list. If you block her, her username will appear on a blocked list below your contact list.
  • To unblock someone, scroll to the blocked list, tap their username, then tap the ⚙️ icon and tap Unblock. His name will reappear in your contact list.
