Post Droopy Eye

Can anyone suggest a way to "correct" the left eye in this picture? It droops on the left side. Both eyes could be opened a little but if the left were done it would at least match the right more. Any help would be appreciate.

hi tsavoie,

and welcome to RP!

if you're using photoshop, then i'd say the liquify tool. in paint shop pro it would be the warp mesh or warp tool.

All this really needs is the crease line of the eyelid moving up. On the attached I painted over the droopy crease line with adjacent colour and then added a new one on a separate layer in overlay mode, black brush at 7% opacity blurred slightly.

Not sure of change that was made

Xaran,
I'm looking at the before and after pictures and struggling to see the difference. No offense, I just am not sure where the adjustment was made. Did the modified thumbnail get uploaded? I like your suggestion and am trying to see the effect.

Hi Tsavoie. Welcome to RetouchPro.

Isn’t it funny how we all see things differently?

Xaran has worked on Her Left eye (Our Right) Which Does have a droopy eyelid and Christine has repaired that.

I think you may be talking about the puffy eyelid in Her Right eye (Our Left)

Am I correct?

Ken

Made a selection of the right eye, feather 2pix, copy, paste, move over left eye, free transform, flip horizontal, blur edges, healing brush bags under eyes

If I get my right your left conundrum right (which I probably don't), I think her right eye (our left) needs to be opened a bit. I can't think of anything that really works better than Liquify. I would caution about making both tooooo similar.

Ken is correct about what I did - for the other eye though all that needs to be done is extending the crease a little.

right - left switch

I stand corrected. I was indeed referring to her right (viewer's left) eye. I'm learning all the time. There were several suggestions now posted here so I will have to try a couple myself. I agree they shouldn't be too exact but I was hoping to open it a little and I think the suggestions here will help do that. Thanks all for the help. This is a great forum. I very new to PS CS.
