Photo Editing


Assalam o Alaikum.
Is editing your own photos Haram. I just adjust the brightness and sharpness of the pictures because most of the pictures taken from my mobile are quite blur. I don’t make any changes to my facial features. Sometimes I use filters to change the background colours or select random filters to make them suit the environment. I sometimes hide the moles on my face. Is it Haram even if I keep the pics just to myself?


Al-Salam Alaykum wa Rahmatullah
Thank you for your question.

Editing pictures is not Haram! The only thing is that you should not use it for deception of others.

Best regards!
