How to Use TikTok Filters

As I said before, you can add filters to your clips on TikTok before you starting shooting or after the clips are recorded or uploaded. Here's how to add both.

How to Add TikTok Filters before You Starting Shooting

1. Open the TikTok app on your phone and click on the "+" icon in the center of the lower menu.

2. Go to the Filters icon on the upper-right corner of your screen.

3. A variety of filters will appear along the bottom of the screen. Pick one you like and start shooting your TikTok video clips with the red recording button.

Forget to apply a filter effect before your start recording? Don't worry! You can also add a filter to your clips after they're recorded or imported.

How to Add TikTok Filters after Recording or Uploading

Here you just need to go to the Filters directly and pick a filter effect for your video as we did before.

After you add a filter to your TikTok video, you can make any other edits you want, add music, add captions, when you're done, tap Next to Post to publish your TikTok video.

How to Get the TikTok Sparkle Filters

One of the trendiest filters on TikTok is the "Sparkle Filter". But most people haven’t find the "sparkle filters" in TikTok when they want to add one. Why? That's because "sparkle filter" is not a filter, it's an effect, and can only be found in the Effects menu. Here's how to get this work for your TikTok Videos.

1. Open the TikTok app and press the "+" symbol.

2.Record your video by pressing the "Record" icon or simply import your clips with the "Upload" option.

3. At the bottom of your screen, you'll see a menu. Click Effects.

4. Available TikTok effects will appear at the bottom of your screen, go to the Visual and pick one sparkle filter effect.

    Note:There also isn't actually an effect named Sparkle. TikTok users who make videos with a sparkle filter effect may use one or more of the following TikTok effects to add shiny sparkles over their videos:

  • Starts
  • Heart Bubbles
  • Gold Powder
  • Heart
  • Rainbow
  • All of these stunning sparkle filter effects are within the Visual category.

5. Once you find an effect that you want to try, just hold the icon to apply it to your video.

6. You can preview your video by playing it back. If you're satisfied with the results, just click the Save to add more edits to achieve a far more appealing TikTok video; if not, you can also undo it with the arrow icon under the timeline.

7. When you're ready, just press next to post your video on TikTok.
