Part 3. Basic Photo Fixing > Removing Red-Eye in Flash Photos

Removing Red-Eye in Flash Photos

The telltale red-eye effect happens when the flash is mounted on or built into the camera and the subject is looking directly into the lens. The retina of the eye bounces the light right back. Take these steps to dispel those smoldering looks.

With the photo that needs fixing in the active image area, click the Red Eye Removal tool, or press Y.

Click the red area in the photo to choose the color you want to remove.

TIP

Zooming Will Help

This task is much easier if you zoom your view of the eye so that you can see the detail before you apply the brush. If the effect is tiny, you may be able to wash it out with a single click—no scrubbing.


TIP

Multicolored Reflections?

Remember that this command only replaces a single color. Red-eye reflections may actually be multicolored. Repeat these steps for each individual shade of red you need to remove.
