I often get comments about the pastel color tones I use in my photographs. While I don't use the Mextures App for everything, it is one of my favorite image processing tools for mobile photos.
I've been using Mextures since... well, maybe the beginning of its existence! While some of the artistic filters/textures can be harsh or overdone, the more you work with the Mextures App the more you realize it can also be used as a subtle enhancing tool. One of the coolest things about the app is that you can save your filter presets as "formulas", which then generate a formula code that can be shared. This allows artists to exchange filter formulas for free! I've developed my own personal style within Mextures thanks to testing and playing with formulas to find what I like / don't like and over the years have created 69 formulas to date.
I really like to enhance the colors of my nature photos *just enough* to give them a dreamy touch, without feeling overdone. If you love the magic hour like me, you'll love the following Mextures Import Formula I created. It's useful when you can't *quite* get Mother Nature's dawn / dusk colors to translate into a photo.
The code for this Mextures formula is: SQDAKZD
To import the code, simply open Mextures, select 'Manage', click the red ' + ' sign at the bottom of the window, then enter the formula code. Importing and using the code is 100% free.
Once the formula is imported you can easily tweak the levels to suit your tastes.
