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.
This 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 [ ] .
Prior 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…

Darkening the eyes to remove the green eye has worked really well and has improved the picture 100%.
Thanks! I was glad to find a fix, I really liked the photo of my pup being silly but felt it was ruined by the green eyes.
Nic, I am an avid follower of DPS, but I’ve not yet come across this tutorial. It’s wonderful! As are your helpful clarifications. Adorable Basset, by the way 🙂
Thanks so much for participating in ABFriday. I hope we continue to see you. Your photos are fantastic and I’m certain you would have a lot of wonderful techniques and insights to share!
It was a lot of fun, I hope to continue participating. Thanks so much for your kind words!
