One of Snapchat's great virtues is the long list of filters it makes available to users so they can have fun with their phone's camera. With them, it is possible to modify the appearance of animals, objects, and even people. It also lets you customize the appearance of the images by modifying the colors or adding interactive elements. Its potential is so powerful that it is even capable of changing a person's gender.
