Using Filters to Make Reporting Issues More Fun (and Photogenic)

With apps like Instagram, Hipstamatic, the new Flickr, and even Twitter now letting phone photographers apply filters to pictures, it's anything but uncommon. Recently, we've been seeing the same phenomenon happen on SeeClickFix.

Here are just a few of the coolest filtered photos on SeeClickFix recently.

"I used a filter called bleak for this pothole.. it seemed appropriate." 

Ingmar Bergman film or dead tree report?
When 1950s filters aren't enough? MS Paint. 

Including a picture while reporting an issue is always best practice, but adding a little flair not only makes it more awesome--it makes it more eyecatching, meaning even more neighbors might flock to it.

You reported (or discovered) any issues with pics lately? Share the most interesting!


  1. That's brilliant. I wonder why not just make entire videos for see click fix?

  2. other options, @bwc, for the SCF blog, would be to instagram hashtag query all of the results from the #seeclickfix result. one good tool for doing this is called snapwidget.

  3. and dont forget the value of instagram video.
