Head Games: retouching portraits > Removing Dark Circles Under Eyes

Removing Dark Circles Under Eyes

Here’s a quick technique for removing the dark circles that sometimes appear under a person’s eyes—especially after a hard night of drinking. At least, that’s what I’ve been told.

Step One

Open the photo that has the dark circles you want to lessen. Select the Clone Stamp tool in the Toolbox (or press the S key). Then, click on the Brush Preset icon in the Options Bar to open the Brush Picker and choose a soft-edged brush that’s half as wide as the area you want to repair. Press the letter Z to switch to the Zoom tool and zoom in if needed.
