Snapchat Filters – Leap Year 2016 Snapchat Filter

Snapchat Filters - Leap Year 2016 Snapchat FilterToday, February 29th, is leap day. What exactly does this mean? Every four years there is a year in which February has an extra day. These years are called leap years. So people who are born on one of the few February 29ths will technically age at one quarter the speed of a person born on any other day. So if you were born on February 29th on a leap year and you are 16 years old, you are technically only four years old. 2016 is a leap year and to celebrate snapchat released a filter. This filter is a celebration of a day that only occurs once every four years. The leap year snapchat filter will be used by people all over the world who want to let people know about the day, or just see a new snapchat filter and decide that they want to add it to their snaps. No matter the motive, this filter will definitely be used heavily today. Below you will find a description of the leap year snapchat filter as well as a brief tutorial on how to apply the leap year 2016 snapchat filter to your posts.

Leap Year 2016 Snapchat Filter Overview 

The leap year 2016 snapchat filter is one that we will not have any chance of seeing again for at least four years. The leap year filter is very clean. The filter consists of a number of multi colored sky divers falling from the sky. This is representative of the fact that they have leaped from a plane, which plays along to the leap year theme. The sky divers bodies are made of arrows and their arms and legs are dangling. The filter also contains a number of clouds at the top of the filter as well as a yellow sun that is shining in the upper right hand corner. At the bottom of the filter there are four more white fluffy clouds as well as some text. The bold blue text reads “Leap Year” this is because the filter was released on leap day of the leap year 2016. The next line of text reminds us of the year of the leap day and reads “2016” in red text.

How to Get The Leap Year 2016 Snapchat Filter 

To apply the leap year 2016 snapchat filter to your snapchat posts you will need to make sure that you have an internet connection either through wifi or data service. Next you will need to take a snap picture or video that you would like to apply the leap year filter to. Once you have taken the video or picture you will simply swipe to the left until you see the leap year snapchat filter applied to your posts.

Snapchat has already released a live story titled “Countdown to The Oscars.” The countdown to the Oscars live snapchat story includes a sneak peek into the preparations of both celebrities and common people as they prepare for the big event. Many fans made a note about Leonardo DiCaprio winning an Oscar. This is because he has yet to win one, despite starring in a number of classic movies.

When the live story begins you will immediately begin to see the Oscars from the point of view of people who are actually at the Oscars in themselves. There will be a compilation of snaps from celebrities, news networks and fans as they react to winners and nominations. This is why snapchat is such a great platform for events. You are able to see events from the point of view of people who are there. I look forward to using snapchat as a supplement to the television broadcast. It is a great way to take in as much as the event as you can. The Oscars will be no exception. Snapchat users will be able to watch the Oscars from snapchat if they want, but watching it on both snapchat and the television creates a viewing experience that is unrivaled. Unless of course you are physically at the Oscars.

The Oscars live snapchat story will likely contain some up close and personal looks at the red carpet. Snapchat users will get to see the celebrities up close and personal from the point of view of the celebrities. The red carpet snaps will be a big hit.

How to Use The Face Swap Lens on Snapchat

 If you are active on social media you have heard of face swap. Face swap allows snapchat users to literally swap faces with their friends in a selfie. This feature is extremely popular with the younger generations. Before this feature was added to snapchat, people would have to download software specifically created for face swap, to achieve a face swap. Now it is as easy as applying a lens to your selfie on snapchat.

How to Use The Face Swap Lens on Snapchat

To use face swap on snapcjat you first need to open the front facing camera. Next you will need to scan your face. You only need to scan one persons face then snapchat will automatically complete the face swap. To scan your face, you need to make sure that your entire face is in the screen, then hold down on it with either your thumb or finter. After your face is scanned you will be presented with a number of snapchat lens icons along the bottom of the screen. Look for the face swap lens icon in the bottom of the screen. The face swap icon looks like two white faces with arrows rotating around them. Once you apply the face swap lens on your selfie, you have two semi transparent faces. You must position your head so that the smiley face on the left turns yellow. Then you will need the person with whom you are swapping faces to position there face so that the second smiley turns yellow. When positioning your heads, try to make sure that both faces are fully in the screen. A good idea is to try to position the circles of the two transparent faces around the portion of your face that you want to be swapped. Once snapchat has found two faces that are good to be swapped, the app will automatically swap the two faces. Another tip for using face swap on snapchat; be sure that when you are positioning your face, both faces are looking directly at the camera. If one, or both, of the faces are at an angle, the face swap will not come out as clean as it could. Sometimes the face swap feature may swap faces with something other than a person. CLICK HERE to see a snapchat face swap gone wrong.

This lens is going to be a lot of fun and I believe it will be one of the most popular lenses ever released by snapchat. Kids in local high schools are already loosing their minds over the face swap lens. I am unsure about how snapchat is going to go about keeping the face swap lens around. It may be gone after a week like some other lenses or, due to it’s unique ability, it may stay around a bit longer. Maybe it will never disappear. Who knows, only time will tell.
