Filters effect your image for better or worse. How it effects your image is very dependent on the quality of the glass. Because of that, while I do have protective filters on most of my lenses, they come off when I begin to shoot. As other people have told or will tell you, your lens hood will protect your lens when it is being used. But when the lens is not being used, the hood is probably not protecting anything. That is when I have cheap skylight or Uv filters on my lenses.

I also have very good (and expensive) B+W polarizers for when I need them. Filters will always effect your image. If you are going to buy them, buy quality. Use the cheap ones to protect your glass, but make sure you don't use them for taking pictures. Simply unscrew it with the lens cap On.
