Snapchat has a powerful editor so you can create customized stories. And something similar happens with filters. Since the results it offers are so eye-catching, it makes sense that you would want to save the photos and videos you take on Snapchat. If this is your case, keep reading because we will tell you how to do it.

How to save a story on Snapchat

Let's start by explaining how to save the images and videos you capture with Snapchat. The first step you need to take is to create a new story, either with the shutter, with the filters, or by uploading a photo from the gallery.

When you select Save, a pop-up menu will appear where you can select the destination of the Snap. If you use Save to Memories, you will save the image to your Snapchat account. On the other hand, Save to Memories & Camera Roll stores your creation both in the Memories section and in the internal memory.
