According to the dictionary, ‘matte’ is an adjective that describes the texture of a surface.  It simply means having a dull or lusterless surface.  Matte finishes on photography are muted and less flashy.  Matte photos tend to be better for less vibrant colour shots or monochrome shots.  There is a reason that they are so popular as an Instagram filter.
