I have a similar problem, though I use Photo Stream to go from iPad/iPhone to iMac (Aperture or iPhoto). The devices (whether the Camera Roll or Photo Stream) show the filtered version, but when I get home, neither Aperture nor iPhoto show the filtered version in Photo Stream. Have to email the photos to get the filtered version on the computer.

Yeah its strange. I dont see the point of implementing a feature if its effect is made effectively redundant!

Ditto ... although I would just like to work out how to upload an individual photo to Dropbox - the functionality seems to have disappeared since the u/g to IOs7

Using the app to upload one at a time, or chosing the photos you wish to be uploaded still works for me I believe?

Did find this article. Apparently the filters are "non-destructive" so I assume that the file that is being sent to a computer (read non-iOS device) does not see the filter information. I assume there will be a work around for this eventually.

Of course - thanks !
Should have looked a little harder

I am having the same problem. Had so much fun, applying filters, removing red eye or just general enhancement of photos only to find that once I transferred them to the computer ; all the effects revert back to original. Quite frustrating and the only workaround sofar for me has been to e-mail the photos at original quality to myself.

Sounds like this has already be addressed, but....
This seems to be an intentional design choice by Apple.
The photos in ios7 are "lossless" which means the filters are applied distinctly from the raw image file. When that image is shared, sometimes that filter disappears based on what device / os / program is viewing it. I am thinking of the filter as a "tag" that is interpreted (or not) by the viewing program / device. For instance, syncing to iPhoto loses the iOS7 filter. Emailing it to myself retains the filter as a flat picture and loses the original. Posting to Google+ loses the filter and I can reapply a Google+ filter, etc.
I understand the "lossless" rationale, but don't agree with it.
Hope this helps.
