Wedding image editing may include as simple color correction as professional portrait

software, apps for smartphones, PCs and online programs for fast and high-quality wedding
photo editing.
1. Adobe Photoshop

Platforms: macOS, Windows, iOS, Windows Phone, Android


  • Auto color-correction
  • Full control over image editing
  • Simple work with layers

Adobe Photoshop is the most powerful image editor for today. The possibilities of this program
cover the whole range of various operations. You may do everything you want with your
wedding shots.
If you want to smooth a model’s face, make the arms thinner or the forehead a bit higher, remove
stray hair or objects from the background, delete a double chin and improve the look of the
wedding dress, you have to download Adobe Photoshop 2020.

This is an ideal wedding picture editor to improve all types of shots ‒ starting with casual portrait

photos and ending with artistic shots featuring effects, background or even color of the clothes.
However, mind that to learn Ps capabilities to the fullest is about 120 hours. If you cope with
that, your wedding photos will be professionally edited.

2. Movavi Photo Editor

Platforms: macOS, Windows


  • All features are professional
  • Advanced work with color profiles
  • Complex operations are handles in a simple way
  • Perfect tool for improving faces and bodies in the photo

Movavi Photo Editor resembles a mix of Photoshop, Lightroom and Pixelmator. Featuring quite
impressive capabilities, this wedding photo editor isn’t overloaded when it comes to UI and the
general algorithm of work.

Movavi Photo Editor is equal to Adobe software in capabilities. This wedding photos editing

software is suitable for all types of wedding photographs since it may boast of such options as
skin correction, object removal, background correction and professional work with color.

3. PortraitPro

Platforms: macOS, Windows


  • Advanced layer options
  • Skin correction
  • Wrinkle Remover
  • Makeup tools

PortraitPro is an image editor for professional portrait shooters. That is why it is perfect wedding
photo editing software that will cope with all the tasks in several clicks. By the way, it will
reveal its full potential if you use it to improve women portraits.
PortraitPro automatically detects the face as well as all facial features ‒ corners of the eyes,
pupils, etc. in the shot. You will see the maximum capabilities of PortraitPro in the process of
delicate manual adjustment of the necessary parameters.

The user interface enables to work with each important area of the face independently (lips, hair,

eyes, etc.) All the changes will be made using the interface sliders. For example, to make eyes
bigger, work with eye color, etc.
Some changes are applied to the whole shot. For instance, modeling studio lighting, vignette,
skin tone. There are special functions to smooth wrinkles and remove skin defects. In other
words, everything we do in Ps using a brush and layers/masks works here simpler.

4. Snapseed

Platforms: Android, iOS


  • White balance tools
  • Filters and color manipulations
  • Artificial lens blur
  • Double exposure

Snapseed has everything you need for basic photo correction: framing, image rotating, double
exposure, adding text, etc. It should be mentioned that image retouching of wedding pics is on
the top level here.
Snapseed has many filters for artistic photo editing as well as for manipulations with exposure,
curves and white balance. If Snapseed is not suitable for you, don’t forget that there are more photo editing apps for Android.

We believe that this wedding photo editor app is ideal for editing outdoor images as well as

indoor ones taken in good lighting conditions. Unfortunately, if the photo was taken in poor
lighting, the app creates noise and distorts colors trying to “stretch” the image.
Such defects will be difficult to remove for beginners. Moreover, in Snapseed you can easily
whiten the dress or remove/add saturation from/to other objects or level the horizon.

5. Photoshop Express Editor

Platforms: Android, iOS, Windows


  • Simple and easy to navigate
  • Decent toolset for basic image editing

picture editor, you may professionally edit your bridal photos, improve color correction as well
as do deep portrait improvement. In general, this application is suitable for almost all wedding
image types.

VSCO is a multifunctional graphics editor for mobile photography lovers. Long-term experience
in this sphere played a great role in the design of VSCO functionality, the number of filters and
wedding image editing tools that are perfectly balanced.

This wedding photo editor has many filters that are suitable for improving indoor images and

group shots taken outside. We recommend adding little grain after image editing to make a shot
look more realistic. VSCO is partially free; but you may check out more free photo editing apps.

7. Fotor

wedding photo editing software is that it has image editing toolset. For example, adding various
