Red face Fix Picture with eyes closed

Hey everyone!! I have tried to fix a picture where someone's eyes are closed - I have other pictures with his eyes open so I tried to superimpose. It didn't work very well and I was wondering if someone else could help me? I have the full quality picture on this picasa site - http://picasaweb.google.com/Tara.C.J...ithEyesClosed#

Thanks!!!!

Re: Fix Picture with eyes closed

Mej, You also need to post an image that has eyes open otherwise someone else's eyes would need to be used as a source.
Typically you would copy open eyes and some surrounding area, paste into the closed eye photo, use the transform tool to size the open eyes to the approx same size as the closed eyes, and then make any necessary adjustments to the color and brightness. That last step may or may not be easy depending on the lighting conditions in which your open eyes photo was shot.
Regards, Murray
