Nice idea. Few ideas for improvements.

1. Visual: lack of left-, top-margins looks ugly. LED should be centered
   in status bar.
2. Still not sure about colors. For me most  logical would be:
   - greyed out for inactive filters
   - green/orange for active filters
   - red when filters caused that there are no images in view
3. Some feedback: I suppose it would be good if user could saw what
   filters are active without destroying their effect with mouse click.
   Tooltip with list of active filters when hovering?
