    "I tried using Mextures and I just don't see the appeal. I guess you can use it to make some kind of interesting looking photos, but I don't really like adding or changing anything to a picture once its taken. I suppose it's worth looking into if you're the sort of person that thinks photo filters are interesting or acceptable."

    "Instagram is a good social media tool, but not necessarily the best recommendation for a photo editing tool. Yes, you can add textures, but it's main focus is sharing and social content. I would go for other software before using this, though, you can add textures to pictures if you wanted."
