Before we begin, here is a reminder of the Snapchat layout just incase you’re having trouble navigating to a specific panel I will write about below.

Let’s get started!

Now before we get into steps 3 and 4, lets take a moment to understand the BASIC buttons needed to send a photo or video on the photo’s preview screen. (I will go in detail about the text, drawing with colors and filter tools in the next post.) I want to keep this post simple.

A.) “Send To…” button – Pressing this button will take you to the next step to choose the people you would like to send this photo/video too in your Snapchat contact list.
B.) This is the timer setting, the default viewing time is 3 seconds, you will be able to change this from 1 second to 10 seconds.
c.) This is the discard button, press this and you will need to take a new picture. Note and photos taken with Snapchat will not be automatically saved to your camera roll. (We will discuss how to save photos/videos in the next post.)
