Photoshop Elements 8 for Windows Essential Training highlights the important features of this comprehensive image organization and photo enhancement application. Photographer Jan Kabili shows how to use Photoshop Elements to organize and edit photos, build photos into projects like slideshows and photo books, and share photos with family and friends. Jan explains how to train Photoshop Elements 8 to recognize and tag faces, use the Smart Brush for targeted adjustments, and share photos using Adobe's online service, photoshop.com. She also dives deep into the application's editing tools, which rival those of the full product, Photoshop, in their ability to take snapshots and turn them into great photos. Exercise files accompany the course.
Earlier in the course, I showed you how you can fix glowing red eyes that result from the reflection of the flash on the camera when you're working in the Quick Fix workspace. Well, if you happen to be working on an image in the Full Edit workspace, you don't have to go over to Quick Fix to fix the problem of redeye. Here in the Full Edit workspace there is a tool that you can use to do the very same thing. I'm going to zoom in on this girl by selecting Zoom tool and clicking a couple of times in her face. Then I'm going to over to the toolbar and I'm going to select this tool the Redeye tool.
I am going to leave the options at their defaults and see how the tool does. If I need to adjust those I can always undo and come back here and change the size of the area that's fixed and the darkness of the pixels that are going to replace the red pixels that are currently in her eye. So, with the Redeye tool I'll just click on one of her eyes and in a moment the red pixels are replaced with the dark pixels. And I'll do the same on the other eye, and that's all I have to do. Now, I'm going to zoom out to 100% by double-clicking the Zoom tool and she looks a lot more natural.
So, that's how to use the Redeye tool to eliminate those glowing red eyes caused by the flash on your camera when you're working in the Full Edit workspace.
