Barbie selfie generator: how to use the barbie filter

The first full trailer for the Barbie movie was released on April 4, and safe to say, it got the internet buzzing. The upcoming film from director Greta Gerwig looks really promising — but it wasn't just the trailer that got folks talking. We also got a slew of new Barbie posters, showing the various cast members with the iconic Barbie logo and text around them.

  • A phone or computer

  • Barbie Selfie Generator website

The posters do a great job of showing off Margot Robbie and crew — but what if you want to create your own Barbie poster? Twitter and Instagram have been filled with people putting photos of themselves on the now-iconic Barbie poster, and as it turns out, making a version with a picture of yourself is as simple as using a free Barbie poster generator (but sadly not quite as simple as it being its own native Barbie filter on Instagram).

Step 7: Tap the paint palette icon to choose a color for your Barbie selfie poster.

Step 8: Tap the pink Continue button once you're done.

Step 9: On the next page, you can save your Barbie poster selfie to your device. If you're on your phone, tap and hold the poster to save it. If you're on a computer, right-click to save. Alternatively, scroll down and tap the pink Download button.

And that's it! Just like that, you've made your very own Barbie selfie — just like you see in the movie. With your Barbie selfie created, you can now go forth and share it on Twitter, Instagram, or whatever social media site your heart desires. Have fun!

While it's still not won mass adoption in the U.S., WhatsApp is the world's most popular messaging app, and billions use it every day to chat with friends, family, local groups, and even businesses. But such an enormous user base means not every interaction is going to be positive, and that's why WhatsApp has a blocking system to prevent you from seeing messages you don't want to see.
