Instagram Stories filters have gained great popularity in recent months. From the Snapchat baby filter to the FaceApp senior mask, various application effects are a hit with Stories. Instagram also has its own filters, and users can post effects of their own development on the social photo network. The wide range of filtering for Stories is available in different ways: stealing effects from colleagues, following developers or using third party apps. Check out the following list how to save Instagram filters to make fun Stories.

1. Save Instagram filters from friends
One of the easiest ways to get access to new filters by picking up friends stories. Once you see a post with a non-Instagram effect, just tap the filter name to add it. New filters you add will be saved to your account, and you can use them later from the Instagram Stories filter gallery.

2. Follow filter developers
Another way to find new filter options is by following developers of these effects. You can identify their account by the effect icon in the bar above the photo feed. Touching the icon displays the filters he created, and you can test them.
To definitely add filters, I need to follow the account that created the effect. Big labels like Disney, Buzzfeed, and content creators like youtubers Igor Saringer and Ana P are some of the top Instagram filter makers.

3. "Steal" Snapchat Filter
Snapchat was the first photo social network to adopt augmented reality filters on its platform. After popping with the puppy filter, the network eventually lost space to Instagram. However, you can still download Snapchat and use its filters.
One of the options is to use the app's filters, save the photo to your gallery and then post it to Instagram as if it were a new filter option. There is also FaceApp, a new app that is booming with the baby and old filters, which were very much shared within Instagram itself.

4. Create your own filter
To effectively create new filters and post them on Instagram, I have to go through a round of testing before the social network approves their creation. However, through a program called Spark AR Studio, you can create your own augmented reality effects simply and intuitively, while waiting for the whole bureaucratic process to make them public.
The filters created, if approved, can go not only to Instagram itself, but also to Facebook. One downside is that Spark AR is available for download only for macOS 10.12 or higher.

5. Using Lenslist (lenslist.co)
Lenslist is a site created just to post updates each time a new effect is created and posted. On the platform, you can discover new effects for Instagram, Facebook and Snapchat.
A list of various filters is displayed on the site and to use them, simply click on the desired effect and choose the "Try it yourself" option. The new effect will automatically appear in your chosen social network filter gallery.
