In Photoshop CS5 Essential Training, author Michael Ninness demonstrates how to produce the highest quality images with fantastic detail in the shortest amount of time, using a combination of Photoshop CS5, Adobe Bridge, and Camera Raw. This course shows the most efficient ways to perform common editing tasks, including noise reduction, shadow and highlight detail recovery, retouching, and combining multiple images. Along the way, Michael shares the secrets of non-destructive editing, utilizing and mastering Adobe Bridge, Camera Raw, layers, adjustment layers, blending modes, layer masks, and much more. Exercise files are included with the course.
We have an image here with red eye. Let's go ahead and use Camera Raw to fix that. Command+R, Ctrl+R to open up this JPEG in Camera Raw. There you can see the red eye issue pretty easy. Let's go ahead and switch to the Red Eye tool. There's an actual tool icon up at the top. You can hover over that and you can see a little Red Eye as you move over it or you can simply press the letter E, to switch to the Red Eye tool. You simply click-and-drag an area around the pupil, you don't have to be real exact here, just grab enough of the area for Camera Raw to find the pupil. Then go ahead and Auto Detect and correct the red eye there.
Now what I do like about the version of the Red Eye tool in Camera Raw is that you can edit it after the fact. So if the pupil isn't as dark as you want it to be, you can use the Darken slider or even increase the Pupil Size afterwards. So I can just grab that slider and go ahead and increase the darkness just a little bit. I can go back and click on the previous left eye adjustment there and make that match as well. So I'll make that up to 60. That's it, you're done. I will go ahead and click the Done button. That will update the thumbnail inside Bridge, to let you know that this has actually been modified.
Again you can see the little badges up here, when you've touched a JPEG, or any file using Camera Raw, it gives you a little icon there to let you know that you've done an edit.
