Q: When I press the red eye button it gives me a small circle, and I am unable to adjust the size of the circle. What could be causing this problem?
A: First, make sure you’re working with an image file. Zoom into the eye itself first. Try using the arrows to change the size up or down. If that doesn't work, try clicking the dropdown arrow next to the up and down arrows and drag the slider left or right. Or, you can simply try typing in a number in the size field. One other option is to hold down your Alt key and then click and drag over the eye to select a size. If none of these work, try contacting Corel's tech support team to see if you're software has a bug.
