The photo filters you use tell us all about you

The photo filters you use tell us all about you
Filters are getting their 15 minutes of fame thanks to some updates made by three photo-sharing and social network sites. First, Instagram recently updated its site, welcoming another photo filter (Willow) into the fold. Then, as rumored, Twitter announced the addition of 8 photo filters available for its users. And on  Wednesday, Flickr announced a highly regarded redesign of its Apple iPhone app that adds 16 photo filters for users.

So which of these filters do you use the most? All Things D posted an unscientific and comedic chart showing what the use of particular filters says about you. For example, those who prefer to use a Tilt-Shift filter to show a depth of field in their pictures think that they are "bigger than everyone else," while those choosing a black and white filter have "the vision of a dog."

Don't be offended or take it seriously. It does show you how popular filters have become, however. Hmmm. Wonder if anyone has a patent on them.

This article captions are misleading. Yes, the filters might imply your preferences but not the way the examples did here..
