Re: How to achieve effect on eyes?

I did a quick search on utube for eye retouching and found this quick tut on eye retouching. All he really covers is the inside of the eye - not lashes, etc. His technique is very simple and I'm sure can be improved, but it gives a quick bump to eye color and clarity.

Re: How to achieve effect on eyes?

Loosely select the eye...then Ctrl+J to put it on its own layer (as per this tutorial.. Super Sparkling Eyes
Sharpen with USM (Unsharp Mask)Try (amount 150, radius .. up to 2.5, threshold 0)
Paint or clone the reflection
use Hue/Saturation to strengthen the colors you want
Add a hide all mask on the layer then paint with white on the mask to reveal your changes.. paint with black to make corrections and hiding the stuff you do not want revealed
Add a new layer above the eyes and add the reflection you want... use the layer opacity
to blend it in.. also you can use the free-transform tool or blurring or whatever you need to make the reflections look good

Re: How to achieve effect on eyes?

Hi Abarnett, this is really simple to achieve, no need for a long tutorial!

1) select iris with quickmask (or lasso or round selection tool)
2) copy/paste in new layer
3) select 'soft light' as blend mode (dropdown next to 'opacity' in layers pallet'
4) adjust brightness and contrast of this layer
5) reduce opacity of layer as needed
