Grand Daughter was crying

My Grand Daughter would not stop crying during our photo shoot. I got several pictures but this is the only one that was half way decent. Since she was crying her eyes are red in all of my shots. how can I fix her red eyes.

I have not learned how to send an attachment yet so I have just included a link to my photo.

Thanks for the help.

Re: Grand Daughter was crying

hijt, Welcome to RetouchPRO Hope you enjoy your stay here and make lots of friends. Poke around, ask questions, have fun!

In Photoshop Select all the red areas.. use Ctrl_J to put them on their own layer.., rename to 'red areas'... hue/contrast adjustment.., select red..., adjust the red to your liking.. then use a mask on the 'red areas' layer to blend the corrections in and omit the unwanted blanched areas

If you use Photoshop you can post fairly large pictures which are under 100k using the 'save for web' function in Photoshop as described here:

Re: Grand Daughter was crying

There are many ways to attenuate the Red / Magenta in Photoshop. As OlBaldy points out the Hue/Sat adj layer with a layer mask is quick and easy. Another method I prefer is to open the image in Adobe Camera RAW. The HSL Panel in camera RAW has some sliders unique to camera RAW. Just move the Red slider (top one) over to the right toward orange and you get a perfect skin color. As with Hue/Sat the lips will be adversely affected. So can just paste this image on top of the original, add a layer mask and brush over the lips with a black brush.
Regards, Murray
