Prequel App: How to Use the Cartoon Filter


The Prequel app is a free and easy way to turn yourself into a cartoon. Here’s how to use its popular cartoon filter on all your photos.

Photo editing apps are a dime in 2022, but among all, Prequel (and its viral cartoon filter) stands out as one of the essentials. Photo sharing is one of the most important aspects of social media today. Whether it’s Twitter, Instagram, or Snapchat, all of these apps revolve around posting photos for your friends to see, like photos of you, pets, or that new drink. Starbucks.

However, there’s more to the perfect post than just pulling out your phone, snapping a photo, and uploading it for the world to see. In order to take your photos to the next level, you’ll want to use a photo editing app. There are countless options available, some of the most popular being Facetune, VSCO, and Picsart. From adding filters to creating color temperature correct right, these apps can take a photo from “good” to “amazing”.

Another photo editing app to check out is “Prequel”. Prequel has been around since 2020, but it only became popular in January 2022. On the App Store, Prequel describes itself as an ‘aesthetic editor’ with 800+ filters/effects, lots of video templates, and supports things like GIFs and stickers. Above all of that, however, the Prequel’s big draw is its cartoonish filter. Using this filter, Prequel users can upload a photo, apply the filter, and turn into a cartoon in seconds. It’s not the first app of its kind with a cartoon filter, but the Prequel’s editing aesthetic gives its cartoon filter a truly unique look.

If you want to try using the Prequel cartoon filter for yourself, here’s how it all works. Open the App Store on your iPhone (or Google Play Store on Android phones), search for “Prequel” and download the app titled “PREQUEL: Aesthetic Editor”. Once the app is downloaded, open it, check the two boxes to accept the privacy policy and terms and conditions, then tap “Next”. After a few onboarding screens, Prequel asks users to sign up for its $4.99/week subscription. Tap the big “Continue” button to start shopping, but you can also just tap the “X” icon on the top left to continue without buying anything.

At this point, users should now be on the Prequel home screen, displaying all of the different filters available. In the “New” section, tap the “Cartoon” filter, tap “Use Preset” and choose an image from your phone to use. The Prequel’s cartoon filter only works with photos of people, so be sure to choose one where someone’s face is clearly visible. Tap a photo, wait for Prequel to apply the cartoon filter, and make sure you don’t close the app or lock your phone while it’s processing. Within seconds, the Prequel app displays the same image with a hand-drawn cartoon aesthetic!

Once the photo is ready, Prequel has a ton of other editing tools that users can apply, such as filters, text, color adjustments, and more. Feel free to play around with these or tap the share icon in the top right (the one with an arrow and a rectangle) to save it. This share page offers a few different options on what to do with the new cartoon image. Users can save it to their device, share a link with a shortcut to the filter, or instantly upload the photo to apps like Snapchat and Instagram. When you’re done, tap the checkmark in the top right of the screen to return to the Prequel home page. And that’s all! There’s no limit to the number of times you can use the cartoon filter, so feel free to apply it to as many photos as you want.
