Since the Instagram Fish Filter is still in beta, it continues to be developed. Instagram users will be able to take brand new impressive and funny photos with the fish filter.

Answers to questions such as how to use and make Instagram Fish Filter will be announced after they are added to the application. Unfortunately, we cannot answer since users who ask questions such as which is the fish effect have not been added.

All about Instagram Stories Filters

Instagram Stories came as a complement to Instagram but it can already be considered a totally autonomous application.

Without a doubt, Instagram Stories filters give your stories a creative touch to surprise and make your followers fall in love.

If you want to know how to search for filters on Instagram, choose the best Instagram filters or know how to make Instagram filters, here you can answer your questions.

What is your favorite Instagram effect?

1- How to use the Instagram Stories filters

The face filters of Instagram Stories differ from the other effects in that these have to be added before capturing the photo or video.

If you want to know how to activate the filters of Instagram Stories, follow these steps:

  1. Tap the stories icon in the top left.
  2. Swipe between filters with effects at the bottom.
  3. Capture a photo or video with the filter you like best.

Remember that face filters also work for direct, boomerang, hands-free or reverse. Also, some work with two faces at the same time if the designer has designed it.

2- How to search for filters on Instagram

If you want to know how to search for filters in Instagram Stories, you should scroll to the filters browser where you will see the effects gallery.

Steps to search for filters in Instagram Stories:

  1. Go to the Instagram stories icon in the upper left.
  2. On the NORMAL tab, slide the filters with your finger to the left.
  3. Click on the final icon, the Explore Effects magnifying glass.

In the effects gallery you can find the Instagram filters divided into different categories such as:

Instagram filters, selfies, love, color and light, camera styles, moods, funny filters, environment, animals, science fiction and fantasy, weird and creepy, events, hobbies, causes, envelopes, world AR, games or aspect.

Scroll through the different categories to find, test, and save the filters you like best.

You can also search by the filter name in the magnifying glass that appears in the upper right.

3- How to save filters in Instagram Stories

If you liked an effect that you have seen on another account and you want to save or download the filter in your Instagram Stories, you just have to do one of these 2 things:

  Follow the designer of the Instagram filter you like. Automatically, you will be added to your Instagram stories. To find out who the designer of that filter is, you must look at the top left of the story that is using that effect. There it will put the name of the filter and the designer.

  Save the Instagram effect you like. When you discover the designer, you can try the Instagram Stories filter that has caught your attention and, if you like it, download it to have it in your stories.

If you follow the designer of this filter, remember that all filters of that designer will be added. You can erase the ones you don’t want.

4- Problems with Instagram filters

There are some common problems that you mention to me in private messages or in the comments at the bottom. Here I solve the main questions about Instagram Stories filters with effects:

Instagram filters do not appear

Many people tell me phrases like “why don’t I get the filters on Instagram” or “I updated Instagram and the Instagram filters don’t appear.”

What is the problem? Instagram does not give access to the functions of its application to all users equally. It never has.

You can only do two things that work for many users:

  • Install the latest Instagram update
  • Remove Instagram and reinstall the application

Nothing else can be done. Instagram will give you access whenever it wants.

You may also get the message “your device does not support the effect you want to see.” This is because some cell phones do not support some specific Instagram filters. Solution? There is only one: change your mobile device for another that does support that filter.

If what does not come out is a specific facial filter, then you must follow the creator of that filter so that the effect is automatically added to your Instagram stories or search for it directly.
