Default Red Eye Removal

Here is a video showing how to remove red eye using Photoshop and Channel Mixer.

Here is another video showing how to use the red eye removal tool in Photoshop. Quick and easy.

Another method is using the paint brush.
  1. First duplicate the background layer.
  2. Zoom into the eye you want to remove the red from.
  3. Using the eye dropper tool select a part of the iris that still has some colour, outside of the reddish zone. If there is none to sample from, use a neutral grey to neutralize the red.
  4. Select the brush tool.
  5. Set the brush size to about the same as the pupil. Maybe 10 pixels. Set hardness to "50%".
  6. Set the Mode to "color", Opacity "100%", Flow "100%", enable air brush capabilities (it is the icon on the end with the pen and squiggly line).
  7. Brush over the red area to neutralize the red.
  8. If you were unable to pick any iris color in Step 3, you may want to add colour to the eye by adding a slight tint of the colour you think the eye should be (i.e., green, blue, brown, etc.) to the grey colour. Do this by double-clicking the foreground colour box. A new menu will pop up where you can adjust the color sliders to the appropriate tint.
  9. Repeat step 7.
I have attached some preset brushes you can use. Download that attached RAR file and unarchive it and move or copy it to your Drive:/Adobe/Photoshop/Presets/Tools folder. You will then have to add the brushes to your Brush tool presets in PS.

If you don't have Winrar, you can download it for free at:
