Recently I started trying out Snapchat Geofilters for YL events. If you don’t know what Snapchat is… just ask a teenager, they will tell you. If you don’t know what a Geofilter is… see my last sentence. Briefly, Geofilters are location based graphics to add over Snapchat pictures. For a short video click HERE.

Alternatively download the free graphics program GIMP HERE and then use the template I’ve made HERE. For inspiration look HERE. When you are done, save it, then “export” as a “PNG”. If you need help with design you can contact me.
