    I have a trial for a Photo Editing job this Thursday.

    Should I wear formal (suit and tie) or smart/casual clothes?

    Thanks.*

    A smart version of what you'd wear when actually doing the job.

    If it has not been specified, go for smart casual. Unless it's a firm where everyone is wearing suits, smart casual is the best bet

    Would it be a bad idea to ask the employer what attire they expect me to be in?

    There is no harm is asking what the dress code is, unless you have had the opportunity already to see the working environment. If you have seen it, then go with a slightly more formal version of what you saw.

    My advice is always to wear something you can dress up/down if you are ever unsure. It's easier to take off a tie/blazer than it is to not have one to hand.

    If it is an office job I would go with plain business shirt and trousers with shoes. If everyone is suited and booted you won't be out of place and neither will you be over dressed if it is a dress down office.
