Automatically correct red eyes
The red-eye effect in photography is the common appearance of red pupils in color photographs of eyes. It occurs when using a photographic flash very close to the camera lens (as with most compact cameras), in ambient low light. The red-eye effect appears in the eyes of humans and animals. The Red-eye Removal tool uses a red eye detection algorithm to automatically detect and correct the red eyes.
Step 1: Open an image
Open an image. In the menu click File > Open > File (Ctrl+O).
Step 2: Make a small selection of one or both red eyes
Use the Selection Tool to make a small selection of one or both eyes before applying the Red-eye Removal Tool. You simply drag a small square around the eye, specifically around the part that is red. In the images below you can see two examples of a selection.
Step 3: The Red-eye Removal Tool
In the menu click Tools > Red-eye Removal. Drag the Threshold slider to adjust the red threshold value. The higher this value the more red is included in the red-eye detection. Drag the Black slider to adjust the amount of black used to replace the red color of the pupils. Choose the color of the person's eyes. This changes the replacement color so that when Pop Art Studio fills the pupil with black, it is tinged with the actual eye color. This makes the eye look more natural. Mark the checkbox to show a preview of the red areas included in the red-eye detection. The red area's are not identified as being red eyes. They give you an indication of the amount of red in the image and are not visible in the final result.
Step 4: Remove small spots
Use the History Brush to paint back the areas of the image (usually small spots) that are incorrectly identified as red eyes.
Step 5: The final result
The final result is very natural and convincing.
