After creating a filter, the user will be able to access their creation and other Instagram community members through the Effects Gallery. This is a library of filters made by other people that have free use. To use, simply open the effects in the app's camera and tap the View Effects option at the bottom of the filter tray.
It was also possible to create a Spark AR filter on its own, but tool access was more limited. Previously available only for macOS, the program is now also available for Windows. Unable to use filter maker software on mobile.
