Mextures is the best app for applying dust and film grain, textures, light leaks and beautiful gradients to your images in seconds. No app is faster. And with our non-destructive workflow, you can make changes to your layers at any time during your editing process. Fine tune your edits with photo adjustments and then save and share your edit for future use. Included are over 200 beautiful formulas for 1-click editing created by some of the top iPhone photographers in the world.

Featured by Cosmopolitan Magazine, Men's Journal, Mashable, CNET, Uncrate, Cult of Mac, Fstoppers, AppAdvice and more.

You'll find analog light leaks, dusty film scans, tasteful grunge, artifacts, element textures, and perfectly tuned gradients. Effect too strong? Easily adjust the opacity. With 12 different blending modes, every new layer adds a dynamic range of possibilities.

Overcomplicated adjustments are for the birds. Adjust your photos with professional grade tools like Exposure, Contrast, Tint, White Balance, Fade, Black and White, Highlights/Shadows, Sharpness, and Saturation. Included are 30 film presets that emulate popular film stocks.

Unlike any other app, you can save your edits for future use with our Formula workflow. Save and share as many formulas as you’d like and evolve a style that’s completely yours. And new in Mextures 2.0, our formula manager allows you to import formulas from other users. With a tap of a button, you can also share your formulas with a simple code on any social network.

Stack a virtually unlimited number of layers for beautiful blending effects. You can change any edit you do at any time. Change the texture, blend mode, or rotation of a layer even if you added it 30 steps ago. Tweak each adjustment setting anytime during your editing process.

Please fix the resolution issue

I’m using iOS 12 and the resolution issue still hasn’t been fixed. I wish I never updated the app! I need the resolution of my artwork to be preserved.

Love/Hate at the moment

Not sure if it’s the most recent update coupled with the latest iOS release or what, but if I edit a photo that I’ve imported after editing with another app, Mextures is now exporting these photos at a fraction of their original resolution. I’m talking dropping from 9-10 MP to less than 1 MP. It works fine with previously unedited photos, and again I’m only having the problem the issue when wanting to edit photos initially processed in Snapseed or PS Express. I love using Mextures and it’s a 5-star app when working properly, but please fix this glaring issue

Peacequiet ,

Love it!

Filters are my thing..
I can use one of my favorite creations and use filters and it’s a whole new picture yet with the same spin on it that made me love it in the 1st place. I quickly bought all the filters btw,they are good !
