Serious red eye problem

Hello,

I have been given a photo to "fix" but the usual tools, PS red eye, desaturate, etc. do not give a very convincing result. The subject has blue eyes.

Any help on a good method to use would be really appreciated.


Thanks in advance.

Black brush for the eyeris and paint, another layer set to color and paint the eye color.

Thanks very much for your input.

Would you be so kind as to detail the steps?

Best wishes.

New layer, brush tool paint with black.

New layer, set to color mode, paint with blue.

Thanks. The method is good but recreating an eye is proving to be beyond my skills.

The easiest way would be to borrow some blue eyes from another picture and copy paste resize over this one. You will need to paint out the red first then add the new eyes to a layer and probably blur and add noise to match your original

Re: Serious red eye problem

The only thing you can do, as has been said, is to add "new eyes"

Re: Serious red eye problem

Wow, the quality of that JPG is horrible. You just have to steal an eye somewhere else and add a bunch of noise to it so it can match.

I don't think retouching these types of images are really worth it though, my opinion~
