Are you new to Snapchat? Here is how to find and use our Rainbow Run Snapchat filter:

Step 1: Download the free Snapchat app to your Android or iOS device. Once installed, open it on your phone and login with an existing account or create a new one.

Step 2: Take a photo or record a film.

Step 3: Depending on your location you may have multiple filters to select from. Swipe from left to right of your screen to discover filters available in your current location. Keep swiping to find the Rainbow Run filter, which will overlay on your photo.

If this is your first time applying a filter, tap Allow when asked if Snapchat can use location services. Doing so will take you to your phone’s location settings for Snapchat, where you’ll need to tap Location and then tap While Using the App (iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch) or slide the Location slider right (Android).

Step 4: Once you’ve captured your Snap you can send it to the Snapchat contacts you select, post it to your Story (visible for 24 hours), or just save the photo/video to your camera roll and use it on any other social media channel such as Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram.

Struggling to see the location filter? You may need to enable the location filter for Snapchat as some filters require access to your location to work.

iOS – Open the Settings app. Scroll down and tap Privacy. Then tap Location Services. Slide the button next to Location Services to the “On” position if it’s not already green. Scroll down and tap Snapchat. Tap while using the app.

Android – Open the Settings app. Select Location and then toggle Location on at the top of the menu.
Let us know what fun you had at the Rainbow Run! Share your photos, films and rainbow inspired selfies on your social media and make sure to mention us as well.
