Fix Pet Eyes with Photoshop Elements.
You know those strange colors that make your loving pet look like some sort of demon!
It's usually caused by the cameras flash. Just like red-eye in humans, except animals eyes turn various colors. I've seen everything from white to blue.
You can easily fix human's red with the Red Eye Removal tool. But to fix pet eyes it requires a few more steps.
Watch the video below for all the steps. I list all the steps below the video for your convienience.
Here are the steps used in the video to Fix Pet Eyes:
STEP 1. Make the Selection Brush tool active.
STEP 2. Size your cursor slightly larger than the pupil.
STEP 3. Click once to make the selection.
STEP 4. Choose Refine Edge and add a slight feather.
STEP 5. Create a new layer in the Layers Panel.
STEP 6. Fill the selection with black.
STEP 7. Deselect.
STEP 8. Lower opacity of new layer so you can see original reflection.
STEP 9. Make the Brush tool active.
STEP 10. Choose a soft-edge brush.
STEP 11. Size brush to the original reflection.
STEP 12. Set the Foreground Color to white.
STEP 13. Click a few times to make your reflection.
STEP 14. Change the layer's opacity back to 100%.
That's all there is to it. Once you do it it will be much faster the next time.
I recorded this video using Photoshop Elements 11. If you're using an older version of Elements you can pretty much follow the same steps.
The main difference from PSE 11 is that older versions don't have the Tool Options at the bottom of the window.
Instead, you can select your tool's options from the Options Bar which is located at the top of the window.
Another difference is how you choose a tool that shares the same space in the Toolbox.
In older versions all of the tools that share a space are nested right in the Toolbox. Nested tools are indicated by a tiny black arrow next to the tools.
To access a nested tool click on a tool and hold down the mouse button for a couple of seconds until the nested tools appear. Then just click on the one you want to make it active.
