Help with my pups eyes please.

This is a picture of my pup bugsy. His eyes were blown out bad by flash. I pasted some eyes from another photo in to these. What I need help with is the blue cast around the left eye and some blending of both. I am a beginner using CS3.

Re: Help with my pups eyes please.

Is this more or less where you're trying to go? (I don't do this type of repair often.) If so I'll follow up with more info. It's hard for me to type at the moment.

Greetings from a fellow Washingtonian...

Re: Help with my pups eyes please.

"Picture" worth 1K words, but I'll throw in the words, too :

Lots of "little steps," but easy to do. Didn't want to leave out anything.

1. Create a new layer above the puppy.

2. Change blend mode from "Normal" to "Color"

3. From Tools palette click on Zoom tool
a. Drag rectangle around eyes for auto-zoom
b. Hold down Ctrl, then hit "+" or "-" to adjust zoom

4. Choose Brush tool
a. Position brush near either eye
b. Right-click to bring up Brush menu
c. Choose any of the soft-edge brushes
d. With slider near top of the dialog, fiddle with brush size diameter so it's about the same size as one eye (does not need to be precise)

5. At top of screen set brush Opacity value to 100% and Flow to ~15%
a. To the right of the Flow value is the "air brush" icon. Be sure it is "on."

6. If you hold down the "Alt" key, brush temporarily becomes the "Eye dropper" (color sampler) tool. Click on any area around the eyes to set the Foreground color to the desired fur color. When Alt is released, the tool toggles back "to a brush."

7. Now "paint" over the blue areas with the dark brown. Holding down left mouse button will cause "continuous flow" like an air brush. Don't worry about precision at this point; just be sure all the blue is covered up.

8. From the Layer menu: Layer mask > Hide all (don't panic... blue will reappear)

9. Foreground color needs to be White at this point. Press X key to make that happen.

10. Start painting again over the blue areas. This time paint carefully. As you do the white will gradually "reveal" the brown you previously painted. If you mess up, press X (to eXchange the foreground/background colors) and paint with Black to undo misplaced brown.

11. Layer menu: New Adjustment Layer > Curves **
a. When the dialog opens, just click OK to close it. No setting changes needed.
b. Change layer blend mode from Normal to Screen (don't panic)
c. Ctrl + "I" (to invert the mask)
d. Air brush with white around the whites of puppy's eyes to give those areas more definition.

** For this step other adjustment layers such as Levels, Hue/Saturation, Brightness/Contrast will do; it does not have to be Curves.

In Photoshop it is not uncommon for there to be > 1 way to achieve the same results. That's true in this case.

=============

Hope this gets you going. Holler if I left anything out or if I lost you along the way. Glad to help when I can...

Re: Help with my pups eyes please.

Hi Andy. I used a much simpler method than Danny did. As he noted though, there are always more than one way and his method is much more flexible.

Make a selection of the area around the good eye -- doesn't need to be very exact. Flip it, move it and fit it around the blue eye. Change the mode to color. I finished by reducing the saturation just a bit.

Re: Help with my pups eyes please.

Hi there

Removed the blue with a hue/saturation layer.

Added orange in overlay mode to eye.

Darkened the pupil and replaced catch lights

Lightened the white of the eye and removed color noise

Added a small amount of fur color around eye by sampling good fur color and painting on a blank layer set to color mode.
