How to use the Snapchat Expressions feature and apply filter to selfies

The Snapchat Expressions feature lets you insert the famous filters into photos that were captured without the effects. The feature allows you to leave movie-like images, VHS video, negative colors, among others, as well as putting already famous filters in the application, like the puppy face in a selfie. It is worth noting that the function only works with photographs taken by the application's camera and can not be triggered on files uploaded from the gallery. Check out the following tutorial how to enter Expressions in Snapchat, app for Android and iOS.
