Transcript:Adobe Photoshop Red Eye FixHi, I am Don Schechter for About.com Computing.
Red eye can ruin many great pictures. Well, today I am going to show you how to get rid of that red eye using Photoshop.
Coose a Picture for Photoshop Red Eye FixFirst open up Photoshop. Click on the File Menu, select Open, and find your digital picture.
Choosing Red Eye Target & ToolsClick on the zoom tool and zoom in on the eyes. Next, click on the color replacement tool. This tool is located in the same place as the healing brush tool, shaped like a bandaid, and the patch tool.
Next choose a small brush size. Now we need to adjust options for the color replacement tool. Make sure that color is selected.
Fixing Red EyeFor the sampling option, choose once to erase only areas containing the color we will soon choose.
For Limits, choose discontinuous to replace the target color with what we will paint on.
Drag the tolerance slider to to about 70%. You will probably need to play with this slider to get your photo looking just right.
Choosing Red Eye ReplacementsNext we need to choose a color to replace the red. Black might work, but for this woman, I am going to choose a greyish blue. Click on the foreground color swatch in the toolbox and choose the color you want. Click OK.
Now click once on the color you want to replace. In this case, I am clicking on this red. Drag the brush over the image to get rid of the red. If all of the red isn't replaced, increase the tolerance level.
One you are done, zoom out and look at the difference, before and after.
