Like the previous post, I showed you how to use fake cam while learning online and it seems that quite a few of you like to use it. And the only weakness of that method is that you can only leave your face intact to be able to do this and for those of you who still want to turn on the real cam but cover your face, it is a bit difficult. But surely many Gen-z generation now use this to take pictures: Filter. And today I will show you how to filter when learning online using snap camera!
What are filters?
Many Gen-z friends are probably no stranger to the phrase filter. To talk about filters, the filter for mechanical cameras or cameras that workers often use is a filter, used to filter light before entering the sensor, helping to better color standards when shooting, limiting unnecessary colors when shooting. take a photo. The use of filters to get the best photo possible.
But for Gen-z, filter is something quite different from the original definition. Here it means the “magic” that turns images with colorful colors and funny icons, making photos better and videos more vivid and attractive.
Filters are quite useful if you want to appear cuter or cooler. Not to mention filters can also replace layers of makeup by smoothing your face and you won’t have to spend hours just taking a photo. Not only that, there are some filters that can cover your entire face and background (the implementation is quite similar to the background of some online learning apps) so that people don’t see what you cover.
What is Snap Camera?
Because online learning software currently does not support camera filters, we need 3rd party software to intervene. And that’s Snap Camera. Snap camera is a free camera app designed for everyone to experience the joy of using a Windows computer’s camera and apply Snapchat filters to video calls, photos, and more.
Instructions for using Snap camera to use filters when learning online
