ABFriday Challenge…

ABFriday (after before Friday) is a challenge hosted by Stacy at Visual Venturing.  This week’s challenge can be seen here.

Every Friday Stacy showcases after/before photos we’ve submitted.  Then, if we choose, we can tell how we did it on our own blogs.

fixedThis week I chose to do an after/before of green eye, basically red eye for animals.

What do you do when you have a great photo of your pet and it’s ruined by green eye?  Red eye auto fixes just don’t work, I’ve tried.  So I searched Google and came across a great tutorial (from digital-photography-school.com) that fixed my photo.

Rather than putting up my own tutorial, I’m going to send you over there, because I give credit where credit is due.

I got a little confused at step 4.

“Step 4. In the options bar, set the brush mode to Color, opacity 100%”

My Additions to the Tutorial

Setting the brush mode to COLOR really makes a difference… so I’m going to add an additional screen shot for clarity…

Another bit of info that might be helpful, to decrease/increase the size of your brush use the square bracket keys [  ]  .

Original Image

originalPrior to fixing the green eye, I increased the contrast, vibrance, and saturation in Camera Raw.  Then I opened the image in Photoshop and followed the tutorial for green eye.

This technique is going to ‘save’ several photos of my pup.  I hope you try it out too.

Until next time…
