Hello, I'm new to the forum that I bump into and with a good feeling that I will make friends and learn more about retouching my on photos. I'm a amateur photographer that started as a hobby on 2006. I don't know if I place this on the wrong section and please let me know if I did.

I also been going all around the cyberspace trying to get a video tutorial on how to remove a eyeglasses glare. I have basic experience on CS3 and this past week I did a family photo which I'm trying to fix it for printing however the kids eyeglasses shows the reflection of the softbox. Can someone guide me on step by step on how to do this.

Thanks in advance and I'm looking forward on making new friends.

Re: Hello/help

Oscar welcome to Retouch pro. Yes I think you will find many here to share with you various problems. You have a common problem that is discussed here previously. You can search this site for eyeglasses. Here is one discussion of the problem

Go ahead and post the photo. Take a look to see how you can do that on this site.

Re: Hello/help

Helping fix a photo without an example is hard. But this should help your in your next shoot.

Have the glass removed from the frame and take the picture with only the frame. You can also buy some frames with out the glass.

You may have to re-create the eye depending on how bad it is. Or copy a better eye and flip it (make sure he dose not look cross eyed)

Hope this helps,

Re: Hello/help

Zelaya, if you attach an image with just a small section showing the eyes and glasses, you will likely get some recommendations specific to the image you are trying to fix.
