    Removing Red Eye

    Right I know the easy answer to this question is to use the built in red-eye reduction function in my camera, but i decided to forget this weekend and as such have 5 pictures with demon eyed people in them

    Does anyone know of an easy way to remove it? Google found me one or two guides but they were very complex, and I couldn't get it working..I have photoshopCS (not CS2) and somewhere i have my old PSP7 box, but i'm not great with either.

    Or if anyone else wants to do it for me that would be cool too, although I could do with learning myself

    Thanks in advance for any help guys

    I was going to suggest the red eye removal tool in photoshop but thats only in CS2 it seems.

    I normally just go at them with a dark grey 85% opacity 60% hardness brush.

    For basic image adjustment and management, i'd second the recomendation for Picassa.

    The good thing about it is it doesn't actually alter your images you adjust, it just remember what you have done to them and applies those changes the next time you open the image. So you can change it as many times as you like and it does not affect the quality (re-saving as JPEG a few times will loose you definition). It's only when you export the image does it truely alter the picture, and even then it creates a copy.

    It can handle RAW files as well, but its output is really soft. Great for previews though.

    The way i find best (and I've tried a few) is with this technique in photoshop....

    http://www.photoshopsupport.com/tuto...e-red-eye.html

    It does of course come down to personal preferance, and ease....I find this method quite easy

    Cool thanks for the input

    I'll try picassa when I get back from work, if not I can try the trial of PSX - unless anyone knows of a PhotoshopCS2 trial?

    You might be better off looking at photoshop elements, lot cheaper than CS2, is a bit easier to setup and has the tools you need for home use.
