The easiest way is just to select the red area and desaturate. If you have Photoshop then the sponge tool would work as well in desaturate mode.

Well I've never actually removed red eye in photoshop - the various complimentary software that comes with scanners, printers etc always seems to come with simple and effective red eye removal tools. But just to see how easy it was, I lassoed the red eyes, and adjusted saturation and lightness in the Hue/Saturation settings. There is probably a more sophisticated way, but this only took me about a minute.

This is the method I use; and without fail it works better than the blanket job automatic red-eye fixers do. It doesn't leave the eyes looking dead and lifeless. This method does not remove the catch light either.

Make a feathered selection of the red area in both eyes at the same time. The amount you feather will be based on how many pixels in your photo. For example, if your picture is only 72 pixels per inch, then you would not want to feather more than 1 or 2 pixels. If your picture is 300 pixels per inch, then the amount you feather the selection would obviously be greater.

With the selection active, click on the adjustment layer palette and bring up hue/saturation and click on it. Your selection automatically is placed in the mask. With hue/saturation open, click colorize and work with the sliders to obtain a colorized pupil with depth.

Part of the beauty of this is having the selection on a mask. If you find you have misjudged the size of the selection, it is easy to tweak by painting directly on the mask with the brush.

Hope this helps,

Janet

You did well Elle. Her eyes look spot on...pun intended.

Oh no, it must be that time of night when my mind goes silly. Must go to bed.
Night all.
