Snapchat introduced this cool new feature that allows you to send a series of photos or images like a slideshow. This new feature is called Snapchat stories. What Snapchat stories does is to allow a person to create sort of a slideshow that contains photos and videos of what they have been doing throughout the day.
Unlike the ordinary Snapchat settings whereby images and photos can only be viewed by your friends for a maximum of ten seconds, Snapchat stories can be viewed for a longer period. To be more precise, a video or image that you have added to your Snapchat story can be viewed unlimited times for 24 hours. After this time period elapses, the media items automatically disappear. Here is how to send a slideshow on Snapchat or rather a Snapchat story to all your friends.
1. Take a snap of what you want to send
This is where you take the photo or video that you would like to send. Add text by clicking on the big capital T and then set the timer.
2. Add it to your story
Once you have taken your photo or video, it is now time to add it to your story. There are two ways in which you can do this. The first way is to automatically add the video or photo to the slideshow of events for that day. This is done by clicking the box with the cross shaped button that is found on the bottom left side of the screen. After clicking the button, a message appears asking you whether you want to add the image selected to your timeline.
Reply to this message by clicking Add and your image is sent directly to your story. The second method involves clicking the next button. This will take you to the Send To menu. Look for the My Story option and click the check-box at the side. Both methods can be used to add photos to your story. After adding the photos, they are now available for all your friends to see.
3. Choose your settings
Depending on who you would like to view your story, you might want to change your privacy settings. Go to the settings option and chose either the friends only option or the everybody option. You should note that by choosing everybody, your story can be viewed by anyone who has the Snapchat app.
4. Add more pictures or images
A slideshow cannot be composed of one photo or video, right? So, it is only logical that you add more photos or videos to your Snapchat story. This way, you friends will have a clear picture of what you have been doing the whole day. You can add more photos by using the procedure outlined in step two. This way, your friends will be able to see a loop or slideshow of all the images and videos you have added. It’s that simple. By simply adding your photos and videos to your story, it is a slideshow sent to all your contacts. Try it out today. It is a lot of fun.
