Recent versions of Photoshop have an automatic Red Eye Removal tool. But what do you do when that tool fails as it does all too often with people, and always with pets?
Here’s one technique that I like to use. I’m going to illustrate it on a pet photo featuring “green eye”, but the same trick works on people with red eye, too.
1. Zoom in on the eye of your subject
2. Get your Paintbrush (Keyboard shortcut B)
3. Set your foreground color to black
4. In the options bar, set the brush mode to Color, opacity 100%
By painting with the brush in this mode, we will desaturate the area that we paint.
