Most of us edit pictures before posting on social media or sending them to others. And we are always confused among different photography software. Today I am going to cover the Movavi Photo Editor Review.
I am always a huge fan of Skylum products in terms of photography. It is simple yet advanced and easily balanced for both beginners and professionals.
To be very honest, many people consider Luminar or Photoshop when it comes to photo editing but the cons are its pricing. So I considered picking a cheaper option that completes all your editing requirements that suit your budget.
Why pay extra if you are already getting the same tools, the same features at a low price.
Yes, this is possible with Movavi Photo Editor.
Why choose paid Photo Editing software?
So many people consider choosing free software rather than buying a paid one. You must note that most of the free versions also has paid. This means they have much more than the free version.
For normal photo touch, it is sufficient to go with a free version but you are only limited to some features. You won’t get full access to tools, manual customization, and much more.
The only solution to this question is, you have to try it by yourself to notice the difference between free and paid versions.
And thanks to Movavi, which provides a free trial period to test their product and if you like, only then do you have to pay.
Let us quickly review Movavi Photo Editor now. Here we are going to discuss its usability, features, tools, level of work, and a lot more.

There are so many features available when we look for Movavi Photo Editor. Let us check some of them.
Artificial Intelligence is a newly added feature in the recent version and this works magically by auto-detecting the requirements of your image.
With. just a single tap, automatically refines your picture no matter whether you are looking to adjust the background or the face. Here is one thing we have noticed that the AI of Skylum is more advanced than the Movavi Photo Editor.
If you are not looking to edit the whole picture, you can use a selection editing tool to edit a specific area. This does not disturb any other part of the photograph.
For example, you have watermelon placed on a table and you are only required to enhance the watermelon, then with selection editing, you can do this. Take a look below.
In this way, you can use your cursor, drag it to the object and make selection editing.
This is a very useful tool when we don’t want to alter any other portion of our picture.
Erase Unwanted Objects
Many of us go to a picture where we find some unwanted objects or people. Thanks to the eraser tool that intelligently erase all unwanted things we select.
Just select the eraser tool, move the cursor to the unwanted objects and people. Apply it and see the magic. You can see the below screenshot.
Here you can see how we have erased the boats from the river. This looks natural without any artefacts.
Similarly, you can also remove people behind who looks odd in your picture.
Another thing, I have noticed is, sometimes while taking a picture, there is a finger placed at the corner, top, or bottom position. Movavi Photo Editor lets you delete your finger from your picture and make it perfect to share with your loved ones.
It becomes a fashion of portrait photography nowadays and definitely every portrait photo needs an editing tool. Movavi Photo Editor has this feature. Let us compare this first.
