How to Send a Picture as A Snap Like A Normal One?

If you want to send a saved image from your camera roll to your contacts the way you click for a brand new photo using the in-app camera, you need to learn a few things beforehand.

You can send a photo as a normal snap by downloading some third-party apps like LMK. However, this method takes longer to process and send pics. And you should not risk your photos to third-party apps either. Therefore, I don’t suggest or recommend this method.

But don’t worry. There are many lenses available on the Snapchat app which let you take a photo of the saved pictures and send them as a regular snap. Let’s learn how to send a picture as a snap.

Step 1: Launch the Snapchat app on your smartphone.

Step 2: On the left side of the Shutter icon (the biggest circle on the landing page), click the laughing emoji.

Step 3: Either hit the magnifying glass icon from the top left corner or bottom right corner (this one is labeled Explore).

Step 4: Search for the lenses that let you capture a snap of a saved photo on your camera roll. I personally love Pick From Photos by IBRA. You can search for it. It does a magnificent job.

Step 5: Once you find the desired lens, tap on it.

Step 6: Now, you can navigate to the desired photo and click the lens icon, which will work as a camera shutter.
