Red eye is a common issue in photos caused by the flash of the camera. Fortunately, fixing this problem in Photoshop is quick and easy. In this tutorial, we’ll guide you through the simple steps to remove red eyes in your photos.
First, duplicate the background layer by pressing ctrl + J. This step is optional, but it’s helpful to have a before and after comparison. Next, go to the healing tools and right-click to select the red eye tool. You’ll see two options for pupil size and dark amount.
Adjust the pupil size to determine how much of the eye is red, and the dark amount to control how much you want to darken the pupil. For this tutorial, we’ll start with 1% for both settings. Click and drag the tool over the eye to select it. You’ll notice a little bit of haze, which means that 1% pupil size isn’t enough.
Increase the pupil size to 100% while leaving the dark amount at 1%. This step will create a glow around the eye, so you’ll need to adjust the dark amount. Start with 20% and gradually increase it until the haze disappears. Each eye is different, so you may need to use different settings for each one.
Once you’ve adjusted the settings, press ctrl + O to zoom out and see the before and after comparison. If you’re satisfied with the result, save your image.
In conclusion, removing red eyes in Photoshop is a quick and easy process that can dramatically improve your photos. We hope this tutorial was helpful for you.
