In Picasa 3 Essential Training, Dane Howard demonstrates how the latest upgrade of this free program from Google will allow photographers to organize, share, and edit digital photos more easily and effectively than ever before. Dane shows newcomers and experienced users how to archive and share photos from a desktop or online. Exercise files accompany the course, but using personal media is encouraged.
Next let's talk about red eye. I'm going to use an image of my own that's not located in your Exercise Files. You can apply the same technique to your own photos. Now red eye happens when the flash goes off. We've all probably seen it. And one of the things that I strongly recommend is just turn off the flash. A lot of digital cameras are extremely sensitive to light and can actually have amazing images even without the flash firing. So just take your camera out of Auto Mode and make sure the flash doesn't fire.
But Picasa has recognized that a lot of people do shoot with the flash on and they have the red eye. So to do is go ahead and click on Redeye, and what it'll do is it'll detect an area of the eye and you can start to triage your red eye directly within. So to do this click and hold the area you want to triage and it'll go through and it'll remove the red eye. So to do that it's doing some initial detection, so that you can go through and select the area of the eye that you want.
And again, everything is nondestructive. So you can go ahead and preview and apply it and remove the red eye directly from the image itself.
