Changing Eye Color?

Is it possible to change the eye color from dark to light blue? I don't have photoshop, but I have paintshop pro 7 or 8, so maybe someone could tell me how I could do that? thanks

Re: Changing Eye Color?

I don't know if this is a light enough blue for what you wanted. Also, maybe too much of a purple cast. I just selected the eye and subtracted the pupil center and changed the color. I use Photoshop CS2. I am sorry but I know nothing about Paint Shop Pro. so I can't recommend any tools, but others at this site should be able to help.

Re: Changing Eye Color?

Sorry, I don't use PSP either but in PS there are many ways to do this. For this image I used the Color Replacement Tool in PS CS2 and about 1 minute to recolor the eyes.

Re: Chaning Eye Color?

I'm sure there are a number of ways to do this but one way is to:

1) take your lasso tool and outline the iris of both eyes
2) then go to adjust > Hue Saturation...here you can adjust the Hue to get the blue you desire.

Re: Changing Eye Color?

I realize now I made dark blue eyes, but I can get light blue using the same method.

Make your own eyes from scratch!

take a picture of your eye and make a template or a brush for texture.

Re: Changing Eye Color?

As a PSP user you will find this site very handy.
http://www.psplinks.com/content/Photo_Retouching.html

To change colour of eyes open new raster layer , blend mode soft light.
On this layer using the airbrush apply the required colour over the eye. Don't worry about going beyond the eye as this can be cleaned up with the erase tool.
Then set the opacity of this layer to give the correct amount of colour.
Then merge the layers

Re: Changing Eye Color?

Here's my version....

Select the eye area, desaturate, duplicate the layer, on the first one curves to get the gray color darker, on the second (the duplicate one) lightened grays with levels getting the gray almost equal then variations one click on cyan, one click on blue, on click on lighter, then Hard Light at 50% opacity. On a new layer, with the eye selection fill the eye with white, then Soft Light at 60% opacity. New Layer, keep the eye selection and paint with a darker gray blue only at the edges, this layer on Multiply at 40% opacity and the result is here...

Must play 'cause each eye's different. Hope this helps.

Silvia.
