Red eye and Blue eye removal
« on: October 12, 2009, 02:13:55 AM »
I put this shot up and it has blue eye from the flash, now I have various ways of dealing with it, but whenever I try on a shot like this, where the blue area is quite large, I can never get a natural looking repair..  Any tips for doing this well ?

Just had a very quick go.



I used the "replace color" tool.  Open it up, click the eye and then use the sliders to correct.  I dropped the sat and lightness quite a bit then fiddled with the hue.  Tweak the fuzziness as required.  Then a curve adjustment to open up some detail in the fur.  Longer to explain than to do....

Could probably do with the desaturate sponge right on the catchlight too.

Very nice, I like that it still looks natural, I see you havent tried to get rid 100%, but instead worked towards toning it down and the result is very good..  Thanks for the tips  :beer:

Got round to trying this out, very pleased with the results and very simple. Not sure if I managed to lose a bit of life in the pupil, but I will experiment a bit more :)

Looks good.  It's gone a bit desaturated though which always looks a bit like cataracts :(  Maybe add a false catchlight?
