    I've always found this method helpful. Keeps the texture and removes circles and bags.

      Re: How to Remove Dark Circles Under Eyes?

      You can also use a curves adjustment layer from the 1/2 moon icon at the bottom of the layers pallet. This will give you a clear, transparent, non-covering, non destructive layer that is totally adjustable. It will come with a white mask already provided on the layer.

      If you want to only lighten the eye bags you can just pull up on the center of the RGB curve... and then the whole image will be lightened as you pull. Pull up till you see the eye bags getting better looking.

      To use the technique you have to invert the white mask to a black mask by pressing Control or Command I (Invert) after having selected the mask. This hides your above adjustment completely. Now paint on the black mask with a 4% opacity soft white brush over the eye area. This will softly and subtly selectively brighten the eye bags by however much you want...where ever you want it lighter. Use the white brush to ADD the lightening effect...change it to a black brush and paint to HIDE the lightening effect. Use the opacity slider on the top right of the layers pallet to further adjust the intensity of the fix... untill you like it.

      If you want / need to...you can also go into the red, green or blue channels and slightly pull up or down on the center of the curves to color correct the adjustment however you like.

      Good Luck - Ray

        Images vary a lot, and you are likely to hit edge cases if you do enough of these. Once in a while, it will be extremely annoying. In general you remove dark circles by lightening them, typically via burn/dodge methods. You add some color correction if the color goes wacky in spots. This can be an adjustment layer or color blended cloning.

        In general you should learn as much as possible about the anatomy of that area, basically eye socket and upper cheek. Otherwise you may not notice it right away if your retouching produces the appearance of an unrealistic shape. It's one of those tough areas that people constantly screw up. Other things that people screw up are cutting out and comping things that involve hair, retouching hands and feet, and probably a number of other things.

                How about consulting a dermatologist? I had dark circles under my eyes because of not getting proper sleep and work pressure. I used cucumber as I have read in blogs it helps to reduce the dark circles but there was not much effect. One of my colleagues suggested undergoing dark circle under eyes treatment from the centre for dermatology in Richmond Hill. She had undergone the same procedure from this clinic. So I would suggest you to consult a good dermatologist in your locality and take good treatment for the dark circles.

                    Similar to Ray's procedure above, but even more straightforward as it simply compresses each colour-channel individually:

                            by TMR Design
                            I've been looking for a good way to retouch dark circles under eyes. I've done this with a curves adjustment layer but I find that when the circles are rather significant that using curves often begins to alter to tonality of the skin rather than just lightening.

                            What is the preferred...

                            This is a picture of my pup bugsy. His eyes were blown out bad by flash. I pasted some eyes from another photo in to these. What I need help with is the blue cast around the left eye and some blending of both. I am a beginner using CS3.

                            Retouching Red Eyes (not red-eye)
                            by gracelight
                            I occasionally come across eyes that are reddish around the eyes and in the white part of the eyes. This is not red-eye but the skin or whites are just reddish or a bit bloodshot. Makes the people look tired, sick, drunk or stoned.... Is there an easy fix for this? Or at least some suggestion on...

                            Hey, i just finished a photo but im not very happy with the white of the eyes, i think its far to white, yes its my own fault that i put al the layers together to soon, so now i cant adjust it anymore..

                            is it still possible to make the white less white or bright in this picture?

                            Lighten under the eyes?
                            by morpheus1870
                            When lightening the areas under the eyes (eye bags) whats the best way to go. I have tried using dodge tool but tend to get a very white patchy look.

                            Should i heal or stamp or use the brush to paint.

                            thanks all
