Say goodbye to limitations and unlock endless creative possibilities with Snapchat’s AI tools at your fingertips. Imagine the magic of conjuring up any image you are thinking of just by inserting a description. That’s the concept of AI image generation, which has trained itself on millions of existing images to produce any image based on a user description. It’s clear that from artists to designers, everyone is using AI Image, increasing its popularity.

Recognising this opportunity, Snapchat dived into the AI world with two features called Generate and Extend. Generate invites you to type in your imagined image description and see it on your screen, while Extend is designed for adding AI tweaks to your existing snaps, like widening a photo background. It could also act as a virtual photographer that can rewind time and capture the perfect click. So, today we will explain these features so that you can also enjoy them.

Expand Your Creative Horizons: A Step-Step Guide to Snapchat’s AI Tools

Before you dive into crafting AI masterpieces with Snapchat, there is only one key thing to know. Snapchat allows these features for those who subscribe to Snapchat+ (costing $3.99 per month). I think it’s worth it, as the quality and response it gives literally feel premium. But remember, using Snapchat’s AI tools with a premium subscription is not limited to AI image generation; in fact, you have more things to try. So, ensure you have such a subscription and get hands-on with trying the steps below.

Generating photos with Snapchat AI

If you’re ready to paint vibrant landscapes and portraits or design any scene that is on your mind, then Snapchat’s AI opens the door for you. It has a tool called AI Image Generation that gives you the facility to enter your imagination about a scene and turn it into an image. Not only that, it has varied options for rendering the image in different visuals. Furthermore, you can download and share it anywhere you want. So, let’s jump on to the steps that guide you to using this feature.

Note: After completing step 6, if you want more variation, you can click generate again, and you can also edit the AI-generated result as per your preference.

  1. Open the Snapchat app.
  2. Tap the AI button on the right side of the capture screen.
  3. Now choose ‘type prompt’ (a way to craft an image with your own preference) or ‘suggest prompt’ (to get a prompt suggested).
  4. Type your prompt if you’ve chosen the ‘type prompt’ option.
  5. Next, tap on the generate button.
  6. Following this, Snapchat’s AI will generate different variations of your given prompt.
  7. Find and tap the image that you’d like to use.
  8. Lastly, save the image, and you’re done.

Once you’re done with these steps, you can share the generated image with anyone through any channel. In fact, you can share your masterpiece with Snapchat’s community by putting it on your story.

Extending your existing snaps

Developers from Snapchat think of those moments when you have taken pictures, but those were not perfect. I mean Snapchat Expand, which uses an AI algorithm to expand and create the perfect picture that you always need. But consider that this feature is accessible or works best when the picture you are expanding has clear edges, space for imagination, and interesting elements. So below are instructions to expand any image using Snapchat AI.

  1. Open the Snapchat app.
  2. Then choose the snap that you want to expand.
  3. Tap the down arrow on the right side of the screen.
  4. Now select the crop tool (look for two overlapping right angles).
  5. At the bottom of the screen, tap Expand.
  6. As a result, Snapchat AI analyses your snap and tries to make it perfect by capturing more of the screen, widening the perspective, etc.
  7. If you want, then adjust the zoom level or reposition the expanded area.
  8. Once you are satisfied with the result, save it and enjoy it.

Similar to images created using Snapchat AI, the snaps you have expanded can be shared on any channel and also with the Snapchat community by putting them on Story.
