A mosaic filter removes data from the source file, simplifying sectors' colours. This gives the appearance of a mosaic made from tiles. Some people like the effect, but it removes content from the photo. And when an editor merges such a filter onto an image, the conversion edits the file permanently. If you have access to the Photoshop file rather than the exported image, you can remove the filter by editing the relevant layer's mask.
