Snapchat is a social hub which has grown in popularity at an incredible pace over the years. The manner that people have taken to the app is remarkable. Numerous factors contribute to the huge user base and popularity of the platform. Snapchat lets you capture all the interesting moments from your daily life and share them with your friends. You can add aesthetics to these photos using the various filters available on the platform. Not only that, but you can also add AR (Augmented Reality) effects which let you add animations and backgrounds to your photos and videos.
Apart from capturing photos and videos on Snapchat, users can also converse with friends, get each other’s location information on the map, and create avatars for themselves on the platform.
In this blog, we are going to learn if you can get the original video back after trimming it on Snapchat, and if yes, then how? Let’s get started!
How to Get Original Video Back After Trimming on Snapchat?
If you accidentally trimmed an important video on Snapchat and haven’t saved the original version anywhere, you might be wondering if there’s a way to get the untrimmed version back. Unfortunately for you, there is no way to get the original video back once you have trimmed and saved it.
When you trim a video on Snapchat, the app modifies it permanently so that after saving it, there is no way to recover the trimmed portions. However, if you have saved the original video to your camera roll or any other location, there might still be hope for you.
In case the original video is saved somewhere else, you can easily edit it and have the portions you need. But if the case is that you only had one copy of it which you have already trimmed, then there’s no way to get the original, untrimmed version back.
Furthermore, if you want to learn how you can save snaps on Snapchat as well as your gallery, let’s explore that further in this blog.
Where can you find the saved snaps on Snapchat?
Snapchat keeps its archive of all your photos and videos taken on the app. This way, even if you lose them from your gallery, you would have a place where they are safely stored.
So where can you find these saved snaps on the platform? The place to find all your snaps and old stories on the platform is Snapchat Memories. This feature was introduced on public demand for users to have a place where they could store and view their photos and videos taken on the platform.
To access your Memories, follow these simple steps:
Step 1: Open Snapchat on your device and log in to your account if you haven’t already.
You will be taken to your camera screen.
Step 2: Swipe up from the camera screen.
This will open up your Memories section, where you can access all your photos and videos.
You can swipe right to see all your snaps, camera roll, screenshots, saved stories, and the “my eyes only” section. You can browse whatever section you want and access the snaps you want to view.
