It’s your best friend’s birthday. What do you do? Create a custom Geofilter on Snapchat to mark the occasion, of course. But you don’t have to boot up your computer to create a region-specific skin any more. You can now do it from within the Snapchat application on your smartphone.

“We’re making it easier to design a custom Snapchat filter,” explains Snapchat in a post on its parent company Snap’s blog. “Snapchatters can now create filters right in the Snapchat app, and customize them with many of the same Creative Tools available to decorate Snaps!”

Pricing starts at $5.99

To get started, all you need to do is tap On-Demand Geofilters in Settings, then start customizing your filter. Once you’re finished, choose where you’d like it to appear and when. Now all that’s left to do is pay; pricing starts at $5.99 for an hour in a small geographic location.
