Gail, I think you're referring to fugitive's comment that "PSP 7 has a tool specifically for redeye." Please note that's "PSP" as in "Paint Shop Pro", not "PS" as in "Photoshop."
(BTW, Adobe PhotoDeluxe also has a pretty easy red-eye correction tool.)

Hi Gail,

I generally use a method I learned years ago that uses the channel mixer.

I select the area with the eclipse lasso tool and then go to New Adjustment Layer and choose Channel Mixer. I start with the red channel which in most cases, is the problem. I move the slider from 100 on red to 0. Then the green channel 50% and blue 50%. You can adjust this depending on whether the color may be a little more green or blue. Remember that the total percent must always equal 100%. Doing this on an adjustment layer always you to erase areas you may have gone over.

As far as Paintshop Pro.... I'm using Paintshop Pro 7. I open the image and go to Effects, then drop down menu to Enhance Photo.
The drop down menu at the bottom has Red Eye Removal.

Let me know if you need any more help.

Cheers,
Lisa

Plan D

If you have images of other animals whose eyes are "OK," another possiblity would be to select / copy a "good eye" from Dog pic A and paste it onto a new layer in Dog Pic B.

Size accordingly and blend with the rest of the image using a layer mask and, if necessary, a levels adjustment layer.

If you need both eyes fixed, you could repeat the process, retrieving the other eye from Dog Pic A

-or-

duplicate the "imported eye" layer in Dog Pic B, select the eye (CTRL+click the layer name), flip it on the horizontal plane, then drag into position over the 'other' bad eye. Blend as needed.

critique on red eye fix

6-18-02
I tried many of the methods and thank all for the options (one had to do with dragging the red channel or layer into the blue or vice versa but it ended up doing something goofy – I ended up using the lasso and doing something, I found a red eye fix in another program, but not as good as your suggestions. I am presenting b4 and aft for critique – these are also part of info I needed ideas from on the link for extraction (which PS7 has the nice extraction tool and Jak gave me a nice way to touch up after). I would like to feather a square? vingette out around them, but ended up with a white one when I used the vingette ‘action’. Mostly can’t remember how I did something if I did it long ago – but now I am making my own notebook with the helps that work best for me. Also, is there a place that has ‘stock’ photo’s of just normal stuff (not for sale) and/or a link to locate such. Or a thread in here that addresses using such for repairs – like someone said they kept pics they could find of eyeballs, I need a semi truck fender, etc. So many things, so little knowledge (so far, tooooo many so’s).

Unhappy pic tooo big

Sorry, I'll get better at resizing, etc. Although, after submitting and rechecking I don't like what I see, so I guess critiques are in line. (I already know the one about 'don't quit your day job')Thanks.

Excellent job, Gail! The only thing I'm noticing is some very hard shadows around the heads that you might consider softening/lightening.

As for the vignetting - check out the tutorials. I wrote one on vignetting and it's a technique that lets you use any shape you want.

Thanks Jak - I cloned out the hard shadows as part of the extraction figuring the built in ones were better than me manufacturing them in drop shadow, but then the orig was so dark that I suppose somehow they should be softened - AND, I will look in tutorials for the vingette info. Thanks all again for all the help on the RED EYE.
