To use the Before and After Scan on Instagram:
The Before and After Scan Instagram filter has recently become a trend. The filter, whose real name is Before and After Sscan, got many Instagram users wondering how they could also join this trend.
Learn how to use the Before/After Scan on Instagram.
The Before and After Scan is a fun filter you should definitely try if you are looking to add more flair to your Instagram posts.
The filter scans your case and shows what your supposed twin or better-looking half looks like. However, the filter doesn’t do that automatically - you have control over what the filter shows as an After. You can select any picture you want, even a picture of your favorite celebrity.
If you want to check out some of the other Instagram filters and effects, explore the Yellow Teeth filter, the Celebrity Look-Alike filter, and the Pixar filter.
If you want to join the trend with the Before and After Scan effect, you need to create a Reel and select the effect which scans your face.
Also, you can add music to your video by tapping on the ‘music’ sticker.
Users that had the same issue with the Before and After Sscan not working reported that the Before and After Scan most commonly doesn’t load after uploading the celebrity photo. The screen only displays a black and white box on a black screen.
Also, if you tap on the effect, Instagram will begin to play the video. Then the screen starts scrolling down, but the image doesn’t load.
If you are trying to use the Before and After Scan filter and it’s not working, there are several things you can try to fix it.
One of the first fixes you should try if your Before and After Scan filter is not showing up is clearing the cache from the Instagram app.
On Android, open Settings, go to ‘Apps & Notifications’, find Instagram, go to ‘Storage & cache’, and tap on ‘Clear Cache’.
On iPhone, go to Settings > General > iPhone Storage > Instagram. Here, tap on the ‘Delete App’. Now go to the App Store and reinstall the Instagram app.
Before you start recording the video, tap on the ‘Add Media’ button to upload a photo of yourself or of a celebrity from your camera roll. After the photo is uploaded, you’ll see the ‘Change Media’ option. Now, start recording the Reel, and the Before and After scan should be working properly.
Another reason why the Before and After Scan is not working may be due to a glitch with the app. To fix the issue, log out of Instagram, delete the app, then go into the App Store or Play Store to reinstall it and log back into the app. The Before and After Scan filter should work just fine.
If logging out and logging back in, and reinstalling the Instagram app, didn’t fix the issue, try updating the app. Sometimes the issue with Instagram filters like the Before and After Scan not showing up may be due to a glitch in the app. Updating the app can help solve this issue.
Go to the App Store or Google Play Store, search for Instagram, and check if there is an update pending.
Sometimes effects and filters on Instagram may not work because of an issue with the server. If this is the case, the server outage should be resolved after a couple of hours. The only solution is to wait for a while and then go back to Instagram to check if the Before and After Scan functions again.
If you have installed a new version of the app, you might need to give face and hand effects permission to be able to use Instagram and filters.
Now, check if the issue is resolved.
If the Before and After Scan filter or some other filter is not showing up when you search it, try adding it from someone else’s Reel.
