For this type of task we can use email, social networks or certain instant messaging applications. But whatever our case, on many occasions it is advisable to carry out certain tasks of photo editing before sharing or saving them. That is precisely where the aforementioned Image editing programs come into play.
One of the great advantages that we find in these software solutions today is that many of them try to make things as easy as possible for us. This means that we will have the possibility of carrying out these basic editing tasks, without the need to have too much prior knowledge of it. In fact, oddly enough at first, Adobe Photoshop is one of those solutions. Although here we find multitude of tools specially focused for professional use, we also have basic retouching functions.
When does this error occur in the photos
It is worth mentioning that the appearance of this error in the photographs usually occurs in low light conditions and when we use the flash of the camera or mobile. It is true that we light up the scene to a great extent, but that unpleasant failure occurs on many occasions. In the past, when we had more limited photo editors, we were forced to remove those red eyes as best we could. In other words, a good part of the process was based on our imagination and creativity with the program.
However, things have changed a lot and these editors, as we mentioned before, now try to make things much easier for us. Therefore, next, we are going to talk about how to solve this error in the look of the photos with the aforementioned Photoshop in a simple way. In fact, as we will see below, it is possible that when we know the program’s operating mode for these tasks, we no longer want to use another.
Load the file in Photoshop
And it is that, despite the advanced functions of the program, it is worth highlighting the facilities that Adobe provides us, for example, when it comes to removing these red eyes. Whereas just a few years ago we had to make these changes by hand, today they are largely automated. In addition, thanks to the artificial intelligence of these image editing applications, we achieve results that are much more apparent as well as professional. All this with a Least effortas we will see below.
Therefore, the first thing we do to carry out the process that we are discussing is to download the image file from the device with which we captured it. Next, once we have the photo in question in our PC hard drivewe open it with Photoshop.
It is important to know, at this point, that we probably won’t have any problem when opening any image format. And it is that he adobe program it supports most current file types for these tasks. Next, we can carry out the editing tasks corresponding to photography in general. But sooner or later the point will come when we will have to focus on the red eyes of the person in the image.
Red eye tool from Adobe program
What we should know here is that this program offered by the software giant has a specific function for this type of correction. It is true that more advanced users can modify and improve image in this aspect in a more direct and manual way. But all this takes time and also requires somewhat more advanced knowledge of the application, something that in most cases we want to avoid.
Therefore, the first thing we will do is access the functionality of the software solution that allows us to correct this mistake with the eyes of the photo. This means that what we will do at this point is take a look at the toolbar that by default is located on the left side of the work desktop. We display the entire list of functions available here through the button that is represented by three horizontal points on which we click with the right mouse button.
Of all the tools that we are going to find here, which are many, we have to locate that one called red eye brush tool. Next, we only have to click on it to make it active and we can interact with it for the correction we are looking for.
Parameters to correct red eyes in Photoshop
Once we have clicked on the icon corresponding to this correction tool, at the top of the main interface we find two configurable parameters. With the first of them we will have the possibility to adjust the size of the pupil of the eyes that we want to correct to remove that unpleasant effect in Photoshop. In addition, we will also have the possibility of determining the blackout level what we want apply to image.
Here we recommend you to zoom in on it so that we can have the eyes in red, enlarged, on the work desk. In this way we can apply the changes and let the program act in a much more effective and precise way.
Once these adjustments have been made, we begin, which by the way we can also leave them in their default value, we only have to click with the main mouse button on each eye. At that moment we will see how the problems that we have been talking about are corrected and we will already have normal eyes in the photograph. As we can see, the process is extremely fast and simple with this Adobe program.
