Since you can upload a snap from your Camera roll, it would not hurt if you touch up your photo real quick with Snapseed, this awesome photo editor is available free for Android and iPhone.
Snapchat is usually used to upload your picture at the current moment, without any editing stuff, most of it is because in the beginning of the app, they not provide a tool to adjust the brightness and contras. Earlier in the time of the app, they just provide a doodle tool and caption. Now, with Snapchat memories, you can upload a picture from your camera roll and create Snapchat story from it, so before post it, you can touch it up a lil bit with Snapseed.
Snapseed was launched by Nik Software as a low-cost desktop photo effects/editing tool, but when Nik was bought out by Google, the app is available for Android and iPhone.
