Looking for animated falling snow apps? The following four smartphone apps will add a special touch to your social media photos and videos during the winter season (or use their other special animation effects throughout the year).
Four Animated Falling Snow Apps
Lumyer (iOS, Google Play) is a popular special effects app. The free version will add the sparkles you see in the image below to an imported photo or a photo or video taken within their app (at the time of this post you can’t import videos).
You can also resize to vertical apart from square, so you can use it to add an extra effect to your Story posts. The paid version has snow but I actually don’t have it to show you. The options below provide all the animated falling snow I’ll need for social media posts. 😛
Werble is an iOS-only app that often gets overlooked. But it has a TON of fun animated effects to add to your photos (like Lumyer, you can’t import videos, just photos). It offers a lot of different sizing options for social media.
To add snow, tap the cart icon in the upper right-hand corner and find the free Weather pack. Download this pack and you’ll find a fun animated snow effect to add to your photos.
This app DOES allow you to import video, so if that’s what you need, VLLO is your app. Here’s how to import a video and add falling snow:
- Tap Great Video.
- Import your video.
- Choose the sizing you want.
- On the left toolbar, swipe down and tap Template.
- Hearts will automatically appear. Find Template in the bottom toolbar and tap it.
- Now you can select through many different animated overlay options. Several provide a snow or sparkly effect.
- Tap Done and upload.
Here’s how to add falling snow to a photo or video in InShot:
- Tap Video (regardless of whether you’re importing a photo or video)
- Import your photo or video.
- Tap Canvas if you need to resize. InShot allows to resize to basically any aspect ratio.
- Tap Filter in the toolbar.
- Tap Effect.
- Swipe until you see Snow.
- Tap it. Tap the checkmark and export.
And that’s it! I hope one of these animated falling snow apps meet your needs for your winter social media posts. If you’d like to remember this post for later on, pin the following image to your Pinterest account.
