Glare on Glasses

Can some please help me learn how to get rid of the glare on the glasses in this photo. Please if responding can you give a step by step process of what to do?

A net friend wants to print the picture out for her parents for Christmas, but does not like the glare. Thanks Neb

Hi Neb,
If the other eye has no glare on it I would be inclined to copy that paste onto its own layer flip it, transform it and then with a layer mask blend it into the glared lense.
Otherwise it is a case of cloning, healing, selecting good bits of the image to use as I have done then a little bit of smudge and blur to breing everything together. Did not have much time to spend on the eye, you could use one from another photo of the subject.
Hope that is of some help,
Dave

Hi Neb.

Have you seen Flora’s new tutorial. It’s perfect for this type of repair.

Glasses

Katrin Eisman 2nd edition Restoration and Retouching has a few pages on this problem. Yes it is helpful to see the other eye. In this case I copied the eye to another layer as a back up and then on a layer above that I corrected the problem.

In this case I selected areas adjacent to the reflections and then used the move tool plus the option/alt key to copy the selection and move it to a reflected area. But I had to draw in a lot of the eye in this case.

I didn't place a highlight on the eye since I didn't know where to put it.

Dave,Ken,Phil. Thank you all for the help and suggestions. I have not looked at Flora's tutorial yet. Some of the functions mentioned I am not that good at. I am posting both eyes, as you might see the other side of photo is pretty bright with the sun on the face.

The post includes the eye I tried to do before anyone had posted suggestions. It is not the best..and a little too dark under her eye. What could i have done to lighten it a bit? Thanks Neb

Hi Neb.

Well done you are getting there.
You need to add some noise to your corrections. It will make it look more realistic.
I found some time to try this. This is done entirely with Flora’s tutorial.
You don’t need the shadow/highlight bit. Just scroll down to BLANK/EMPTY LAYERS SET TO....

Ken my friend said mine looked like I gave her a black eye!! Your's looks great. Now how did you get everything so even ? I am now making changes using Flora's tutorial as you suggested. I picked a place which is too light, I have used psp in the past and it has a history palette and you can make as many undo's at once as need be, Does photoshop have an option to do the same? I want to start over?? I guess I could just delete the whole blank layer as well. but have been wanting to ask about the undo availability for some time now. Neb

Lightening the Picture

Well There are several ways to lighten up portions of the eye. Almost all of them require that you place another layer on top of the layer you are correcting.
Copy the layer and place a layer mask on that layer. Use screen blending mode to lighten the layer. Select the mask and fill it black to hide the layer then paint the mask with white to bring out the brightness of the layer in the area that needs it.

Or add a an adjustment curves layer and brighten it that way. Or a levels adjustment layer and again use the mask to show what needs to be shown.

There are several more but the general principal is that you work on a separate layer so you don't ruin your original.

Photoshop does have a history palette which by itself can be helpful. It also offers another way to lighten a subject by using the history brush
