Photoshop Elements 8 for Mac Essential Training highlights the important features of this comprehensive image editing application. Photographer Jan Kabili shows how to use Photoshop Elements 8, along with its companion program, Bridge CS4, to organize and edit photos, build projects like web galleries and photo collages, and share photos with family and friends. Jan 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.
When you take a photograph with flash, you often get this glowing red eye effect like you see in this girl's eyes. In an earlier movie, I showed you how you can remove red eye like this in the Quick Fix Workspace. Well, you can do the same thing when you're working here in the Full Edit Workspace. You don't have to switch over to Quick Fix. The way that you do it here is to use the Red Eye tool that's here in the toolbox. I am going to zoom in on the girl's eyes by pressing Command+Plus a couple of times, and then holding the spacebar and panning over it, so you can see the girl's face.
With the Red Eye tool selected in the toolbar, I am just going to move over the girl's eyes and click, and it's that simple to remove the red eye covering it with gray pixels that look a lot more natural. I'll click in the other eye to do the same thing. Now sometimes you don't get exactly the results that you want. In that case you could Undo and go up to the Options bar for the Red Eye tool where you can change the size of the pupil, in other words, the size of the area that's corrected, or you can change the darkening amount, the darkness of the gray pixels that are used to cover up the red eye.
So that's how quick and easy it is to fix red eye in the Full Edit Workspace using the Red Eye tool from the toolbar.
