|Sample Red Eye In A Photo|
In this tutorial I will show you how to effectively remove red eye from an image. The image I am using in this tutorial needs to be edited because the girl’s eyes appear red due to the camera flash reflecting at the back of her eyes. The tools I will use are, the colour replacement tool, the burn tool and the blur tool.
Step 1: Open Adobe Photoshop and import the image you want to edit.
Step 2: Use the zoom tool to zoom in closer on the girl’s eyes.
