I forgot about the catch light. Here I've duplicate the catch light, moved the duplicate over for better placement then cloned back in over the old catch light.

Thanks, Ken!

Boy, do I feel foolish. From the way you said it, Swampy, I thought there was a trick and then I saw Ken's response I thought he knew it! I keep looking at this trying to figure a way of doing it WITHOUT cloning, etc, but of course THERE IS NO IMAGE behind that flare.

Maybe I need a special signal or something for the intellectually challenged.

Bluedog...

I wish there WAS a trick. As common as this problem is, I would hope that Adobe would build a filter to fix it withouth the torture of clone, heal, copy/paste etc.

there's always another way to go in these editors. i used a blank layer with airbrushing to get rid of most of the flare/glare. i used push to add and strengthen the definition or edge lines. and i used psp's red eye correction tool to rebuild the eyes after i found exactly where they were with the other technicques.

the biggest problem with this was the eye color. the red eye correction tool only has so many preset colors. i came fairly close to what i thought was there, but you might want to tweak that color with a hue/sat and masking or a bit of additive airbrushing. for my purposes here i didnt bother.

it's probably a slower technique than cloning, but a bit less destructive maybe.
