Dog eye correction

I know there are many tips for correcting red eye in people. (My current favorite is the channel mixer method), but I need help correcting "dog eye" and restoring the bown to this puppy's eye.

The desaturation methods just leave a gray or silver eye.

Thanks, Chris

I tried this action and the tutorial, and it works to some extenet. Really have to pull the level sliders over to white, but I still have a large white spot in the center of the pups right eye.

At least most of the color is restored.

Hi Swampy,

I worked on this before reading Chris' post ....
What I did here is :

paint the white-green pupils with a very dark brown (nearly black) ...

Used the heal brush, sampling from surrounding areas, (Replace) around the the, now dark, pupils to reduce their size,

used the Blur Tool to diminish the 'healing streaks'

and, finally, painted the catchlights ....

Chris,

Thanks for the link! .... Have to try that action!!!

Flora, followed your tips... here's my result ;-)

It's a much better result (not as flat), but a lot of work for a folio of doggies... LOL

Thanks!

Thanks for sharing, chris.
Flora, what a lovely dog it is! That's a so natural finishing touch overall.

By the way, when I was to click 'post reply' button, already 4 replies added!
I tried with channel mixer and masks.

p.s. I have to edit my post...because one more post added to this thread.
Cool~. I like it very much, swampy.

Swampy,

Thanks for your kindness!
Great result!

Sorry .... didn't know it was for a folio ...

To speed things up, you could forget about the 'healing' just paint the very dark brown (medium soft brush opacity 70-100%) over the pupil and repaint the catchlight (white, brush opacity 20-30%). This should be very fast...

venivedi

Thank you for your kind words! ...

Great job!!

nice job CS.

Why did you chose to just run the action on one eye and then clone? Instead of cutting both eyes to layers -->merge-->run the action?

Just curious.

Often eyes do not correct exactly the same no matter what method you use. That is what happened here. There was no reason not to edit twice (but I didn't try)...just doing something different out of boredom.

If you want to lighten the brown you could duplicate the layer in screen mode, add a black mask and paint it back in with a white brush...adjust the layer opacity.

I used Hue/Saturation to turn the white to yellow before running the action (as done in the Horse edit on dpreview). You could use Selective Color too.
