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.

Mextures App Tips, Tricks and Rules

Mextures Reviews


FINALLY updated to fit the new screen sizes but still too slow  Patricklawler  2 star

This is one of my favorite apps but I feel like it’s been neglected. Sparse updates, no new expansion packs and overlays, and very laggy performance plague this app. Even after the new update it takes me 50 seconds of waiting for it to even load my photo library... I timed it. It takes a full minute as well to export a photo with one simple overlay layer. It shouldn’t take this long. I’m using an iPhone XS Max. The more I look at it the more I realize he(they?) just did the bare minimum to keep the app from being deleted by Apple for not being optimized. It doesn’t actually work with the iPhoneX screen, parts are cropped off, there’s text at the top that’s hidden under the notch, and the buttons at the top can’t be reached. It’s crashed four times in the past 20 minutes making me lose all my work! Super sloppy work! It’s 2018. Mextures should have the ability to open multiple photos, batch-copy formulas to multiple photos, and batch export. We should have more filter packs by now. And get rid of the suggested square crop at the beginning, we’ll crop our photos how we want.


Export resolution way down  BDigig  2 star

To echo someone else’s issue, I’ve just come to realize that if editing a photo in Mextures that’s been previously edited by another app, Mextures is then importing the photo at a fraction of the resolution— less than 1 MB. This is really frustrating and will lead me not to use it, as I always use Snapseed for main edits and Mextures for “finishing touches”, but can’t afford to lose the initial resolution of the photo. This has not always been the case with Mextures, so I hope the issue will get resolved soon.


Please fix the resolution issue  TBKAN  2 star

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  zrader  2 star

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


Love it!  Peacequiet  5 star

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 !


Not happy  Ken5546  1 star

The app itself is good for color overlays. The company says for IPhone and Ipad. What Mextures does not say is, you have to use in portrait mode and not ability to use in landscape mode. I always use my key pad to hold my Ipad up. and I like to use a landscape setting POOR APP design

Love what it can do, but way slow on iPhone X  Zan D  3 star

I used to use this app all the time and love what it can do, but it’s now so frigging slow to open and select a photo, I’ve all but stopped using it. Sure hope they fix that issue at some point soon.


Force close  Janew597  1 star

Just purchased this and it’s already force closing when I try to take a picture.


User Interface  lady_foxx  1 star

This app needs an undo/redo function. Otherwise you have to start over. That’s a real waste of time


Amazing but Update Needed  phiberphreak  4 star

This is one of my absolute favorite iOS editing apps, however there is a bug that greatly compresses your photos. Please update this app soon!


Very sluggish the last two releases  Fedgrub  2 star

This app is great and I've used it for the past year or more but the last two or three builds have not fixed key issues with it. Applying formulas, loading images, saving etc all takes more than 5 seconds, sometimes 10 seconds. The app is a freezing mess whereas it used to be flawless.


radtastic  Fin99999  5 star

the new features for mextures add so much more! i use mextures all the time to add depth, atmosphere and something special to a picture [email protected]


The only filter editing app I use.  Ehsjaw  5 star

This app is a must-have for completely revamping your photos or graphic art, or just making those small finishing touches. Extremely versatile, with lots of control yet easy to use. Increasingly better with the ongoing updates. Highly recommend!


Awesome  #ebenism  5 star

A must have app in the arsenal for any creative photographers and editors on the fly. I use this app to add the finishing touches in just about every edit I do. Would give it 6 stars if it would let me. Awesome but hey this is just my opinion. Get in there!


New version  Ellocofish  1 star

Somewhat disappointed with recent update, constantly crashing when either selecting a photo or later when trying to add a guest formula..


Love it  MisterISTJ  5 star

I use this app all the time. It's helped turn my iPhone into a hub of art and creativity. Love it!


You don't have to crop!  kazndave  5 star

Not sure about the review that said that you're forced to crop your photos - you're not! This is a very clever app that gives you lots of textures to apply to your photos and lots of flexibility in how those textured are applied. A great addition to any iPhone photographer's toolkit. Plus great support when I needed to ask a question.


Awesome app with 2 major limitations  Rollerbladingbaby  3 star

When it comes to adding filters and textures, this app is fabulous. There is an endless array of options. However, what limits it is, firstly, the fact that it only allows you to work with square photos. Given the major strength of the app is in editing landscapes, this is a significant failure in my opinion and clips its wings when it comes to combining it with other apps such as Vasco cam that enable multiple photo formats. The second drawback is the lack of a levelling tool. Also a major oversight given your propensity to use it with landscape shots. If it had both of these options I would give it 5 stars. Right now, it gets 3.

Hijacked Nerd

Mextures  Hijacked Nerd  5 star

I LOVE this app —it's very helpful! But, ever since the new update, the app has been really slow and it keeps crashing! For example, just as I click to save, it crashes and all the editing I've done is lost. Please fix this. Overall though, this is an amazing app.


Amazing App  BYRON.Photography  5 star

One of the best apps out, amazing filters. And so easy to use.


Great app gone bad!  ianmbelinos  3 star

Until it's last update this app was awesome now it runs on my iPad Air 2 slower than a constipated snail. It used to fly but it's almost unusable now. Speed slows down even more after saving an image. Please please fix this.


Love it but seems broken  carmeninc  4 star

Love this app but for awhile it just freezes upon opening~


About that last update  ansielart  5 star

The app is my top fave, but after the last update it crashes at attempt to save photo, without saving it, so at this moment the app is not usable at all. Please fix it. (iPhone 7 plus)


Awesome app!  David_Burns_Red  5 star

I can't wait for future updates!


Mextures Rocks  santafesmike  5 star

Amazing app and amazing customer service. I had a slight issue and when I emailed support they walked me through the steps to fix it and Merek followed up with me over three days. I highly recommend this app.


The BEST film-emulation app  Leddywap  5 star

I've done so much research on how to edit my photos like film and I've tried many methods with photoshop that just didn't give me what I was looking for. But Mextures has provided me exactly what I was looking for all that time. And with so many editing options and tools, this app has become my favorite for photo editing. Very impressed with Mextures and I'm so thankful that it exists. Couldn't be more happy with the results I've obtained from this app!


amazing!  heyheybu  5 star

i've never thought i would voluntarily rate an app, but this app makes me want to, its amazing what it can help you do with your pictures, and the final results, are amazing.


Love it!  CricketWalker  5 star

This has ended up being one of my all time favorite editor for my iPhone pictures. I especially love that they keep making improvements! Yah!


must-have app for mobile graphic design  555senseiglitch  5 star

use this one every final edit. more than worth the small price. can completely upgrade the quality of your exports 1000%


Suddenly starting crashing  Knoxmosis  1 star

Used Mextures for a long time and suddenly, today instantly crashes when I scroll down my photos. About ready to trash it as it's totally useless as is. Shame, great app.


Brilliant App  garpublic  5 star

Mextures 2.0 has arrived and it's so good!!! So much more packed into this crazy cool little app! Excellent for adding some subtle touch ups or for the full on Mexture effect! Brilliant!

No nickname dude

Just another awful filter app.  No nickname dude  2 star

Decent scratch textures, the rest?.... Useless.


One of the best photo editing apps for your phone  Lucka1981  5 star

Great app, well designed with great functionalities and clear navigation. Looking forward to exploring the endless combinations and creating unique photos - fantastic app for anyone who's looking for something beyond Instagram options... The only thing I'm missing is being able to zoom out within the photograph to get out of the square crop... a landscape option would be great.. Well done on the app!
