Moving the eyeball

I have taken a picture of someone who, on every shot, has looked at the camera.
What I really wanted was a picture of her looking forwards.
Unfortunately I will not get another chance to retake this.

Can anyone suggest a way to move the eyeball to the centre of the eye and still look realistic?

Thanks in advance

Ken

Hi Ken,

I think there are probably a couple of ways of doing it. In the attached, I simply copied the eyeball, moved it across, and cloned over the original eye with her white eye colour. I pasted another copy of the eyeball in, rotated it, and merged the two to make a whole eyeball. I'm not sure, without the other eye as well, if she looks like she is looking away from the camera though.

What would probably be even easier would be to flip both eyes on their vertical axis, and swap left for right, right for left. Without trying it, I'm not sure if it would work well or not!

I don't want to be picky, but....

You have to shrink the eyeball a little in width to maintain the correct perspective. That's about all, Caitlin already did a good job on this!

Thanks for your very quick responses

Caitlin. That looks very good and will probably do the job But my main concern was as Patrick pointed out. Shouldn’t we be seeing more of a disk than a circle?

I only have this eye as the other is covered by hair. As it’s a face only shot, this one eye is important.

Maybe I also need to move the catchlight?

Could you post a complete photo maybe? It's pretty difficult to find the right point of view of you merely look at a single eye

Patrick, I’ve posted a full picture for reference. But please work on the enlarged eye.
I had several goes at this today and I’m not completely happy with the results.

I created an eyeball and put it one a layer then I erased the eye on another layer so that I could play with the position.
It only looks correct when its in its original position.
I tried Scew to make it oval but it still looks wrong. Maybe I’m missing some shading

I even constructed a full eyeball. But its still a full on view and not a side view.

Ken

2 other methods, replace the eye with one from another shot, if you do not have or are unable to retake the eyes of this person you may find success in getting other images with blue eyes then color correct until they match and overlay the old eyes.

The other way is to copy as much of the eye as you can to a new layer and use 3D Transform. Make a sphere about the size of the full eyeball (not just what you see) now rotate the sphere the desired amount. This gives the right perspective and angle, now just clean up the edges that get brought in on that layer and rebuild the missing white of the eye.

Or like I just did ignore all that ..lol and just reconstruct, here I used half the eye and mirrored and blended, with both eyes this is easier.
