What is the point of that ladder on the left? There are no handrails to grab on to and no door to enter, They seem to serve no purpose at all.

I'm not to worried about it.  If I was I would make a mesh for the hand rails and add it on.

Photoshop works well on this.  That's what most of us use.  You could also use just about any other image editing program that can work in layers.
