Red eye removal

The red-eye tool makes it easy to remove the red eyes from your flash photos.

  • To do this, select the red-eye tool from the photo tool flyout. 
  • Hold down Ctrl and scroll with the mouse wheel to zoom in on the section of the image containing the red eyes.
  • Click and drag from the center of the red eye outwards to draw a circular red-eye patch around the eye. The color red will be automatically removed from everything inside the circle.
  • Repeat these steps for each red eye in your photo.

If you need to change the shape of the red-eye patch, use the quickshape tool. 

The edge of the red-eye patch uses a 3-pixel feather to ensure that the image area inside the patch does not end up with a hard edge when the red is removed.

The feather value can be changed by selecting the red-eye patch and adjusting the main feather slider on the right-hand side of the bar at the top.
