The last little bit of retouching that we're going to focus in on here is how we can reduce or remove red eye. Here we can see that in this portrait of my sister and my daughter, that we have the dreaded red eye, which happens a lot when the flash is too close to the lens or when we have a small point-and-shoot camera. How then can we fix this? Well it's actually incredibly simple. All that we need to do is to click on this icon here in order to select the Red Eye Removal tool. Then what you do is you click and drag around the perimeter of the eye, and you want to extend that pretty far.
It will than zero in on the problem area and make a correction. All right. Let's go ahead and do this. We'll go ahead and click and drag around these areas. If ever it isn't good enough, you can always dial in your settings using these controls here, or if it didn't quite sample a large enough area, what you can do is press the V key to hide the overlay. And if you see that it didn't quite get all the red out, press the V key again to bring that back and then click and drag over a larger area. What that can do is it can sometimes pick up some other problem areas.
And then here of course what we can do is then darken a little bit more, or we can click on another one of these sample areas and darken that up, or change the overall pupil size in order to make sure we have as much of that red eye removed as needed. I'll go ahead and darken those up, press the V key to hide all of those overlays, then press the P key. Here we have our Before and now our After.
