A variety of simple graphical filters are available to camera phone users to enhance their photos on the fly; these filters often stylize, saturate or age a photo. [...] Key Method We first interviewed 15 Flickr mobile app users (photo producers) to understand their use and perception of filters. Next, we analyzed how filters affect a photo’s engagement (consumers’ perspective) using a corpus of 7.6 million Flickr photos. We find two groups of serious and casual photographers among filter users. The serious see…Expand
Filtered Food and Nofilter Landscapes in Online Photography: The Role of Content and Visual Effects in Photo Engagement
TLDR
A quantitative study to expand previous research on in-app visual effects through the examination of visual content identified through computer vision finds that filtered photos are not equally engaging across different categories of content. Expand
Time Travel with One Click: Effects of Digital Filters on Perceptions of Photographs
TLDR
It is suggested that the widely used photo filter is not just a tool to change aesthetics; it also adds a layer of history, meaning, and defamiliarization to photographs, allowing users to construct a mental distance in images that deviates from everyday experiences. Expand
Challenges in user experience design of image filtering apps
TLDR
Challenges of and approaches for providing interactive image filtering on mobile devices are outlined, thereby focusing on how to make them usable for people in their daily life, and evaluations underline that the presented approach can increase the usability of complex image stylization techniques for mobile apps.

How Teens with Visual Impairments Take, Edit, and Share Photos on Social Media
TLDR
The need for more work examining how young people with low vision engage with smartphone photography and social media is demonstrated, as they are heavy users of such technologies and have challenges distinct from their totally blind counterparts. Expand
The Design, Perception, and Practice of Tablet Photography
TLDR
The results indicate that participants take photos with their camera phone for the convenience of the small device form factor, but prefer taking photographs with their larger tablet for photos that require higher definition. Expand
“Do I Look Like My Selfie?”: Filters and the Digital-Forensic Gaze
Filtered faces are some of the most heavily engaged photos on social media. The vast majority of literature on selfies have focused on self-reported practices of creating and posting selfies and howExpand
Photo Filter Recommendation Through Analyzing Objects, Scenes and Aesthetics
TLDR
A photo filter recommendation approach that relies on state-of-the-art deep learning approaches to extract objects, scenes, and image aesthetics reliably and represent them using deep features as the observations of the recommendation model is presented. Expand
Snap Decisions?: How Users, Content, and Aesthetics Interact to Shape Photo Sharing Behaviors
TLDR
This paper examines photo-sharing decisions as an interaction between high-level user preferences and specific features of the images being shared, and develops a model integrating these perspectives to predict permissions settings for uploaded photos. Expand
Mobile Photography and Open, Networked Learning
This paper explores the intersection of photography and education at a time when both are facing significant changes, partly as a result of the increasing use of digital, mobile devices. Mobile smartExpand

How and why people use camera phones
TLDR
An in-depth study into how people (adults and young people) use their camera phones is described, which provides a framework for describing the way images are used both for sharing and personal use, and for affective (or emotional) reasons and functional use. Expand
Faces engage us: photos with faces attract more likes and comments on Instagram
TLDR
The first results on how photos with human faces relate to engagement on large scale image sharing communities are presented, finding that the number of faces, their age and gender do not have an effect. Expand
Understanding photowork
TLDR
The notion of "photowork" is introduced as the activities people perform with their digital photos after cap-ture but prior to end use such as sharing, and how "search" as it is usually defined may have much less relevance than new ways of browsing for the design of new digital photo tools. Expand
Requirements for mobile photoware
TLDR
New developments in cameraphone photography are explored with the goal of improving the design of the next generation of mobile imaging devices and design criteria and implications for designers and makers of mobile devices, mobile imaging and sharing software, and desktop and online photo software are developed. Expand
Photographic social media: a framework for design
TLDR
The findings indicate that people are socially motivated by photographs, selective in what they view, and use photographic narratives to correspond with others and to browse information. Expand
The Social Uses of Personal Photography : Methods for Projecting Future Imaging Applications
An important problem for technology design is predicting users and uses for emerging technologies—doing usercentered design for users and uses that don't yet exist. The primary contribution of thisExpand

Visualizing Instagram: Tracing Cultural Visual Rhythms
TLDR
This study uses Cultural Analytics visualization techniques for the study of approximately 550,000 images taken by users of the location-based social photo sharing application Instagram to offer a comparative visualization research that indicates differences in local color usage, cultural production rate, and varied hue’s intensities form a unique, local, ‘Visual Rhythm’: a framework for the analysis of location- based visual information flows.

Towards a more cherishable digital object
TLDR
Design opportunities for novel products and systems that support the creation of more cherishable digital objects are identified by extrapolating the advantages of the physical to the digital, exploiting the reasons for cherishing digital objects, and aiming for meaningful integrations of physical and digital.
