So, head to your ‘Settings’ menu and find the ‘App Management' tab. Now within it find the Snapchat app, click on it and go to the 'Manage Notifications' tab and turn the 'Storage' option on by clicking on the slider next to it.

You can do this by clicking on the photos icon below the camera button, and then clicking on the 'Camera Roll' tab. Alternatively, you can select a photo saved in your gallery as well. Once you have selected the photo, click on the upload button, and find the Snapchat app icon and click on it. This will automatically open the Snapchat app with your photo now being uploaded to it.

Step 3 – Edit and Upload Picture

Now use the Snapchat app to modify the photo using the ‘Edit Snap’ option. Choose between filters, emojis, stickers, etc. Once you are done editing, you can simply upload the picture to your story like any other picture you had clicked and share it with your friends.
