Red-eye tool

Red-eye removal

The Red Eye Tool allows you to quickly remove red eye effects from faces in your photos..

How do I use the tool?

  • Select the Red-eye removal tool from the Photo tool flyout
  • Zoom into the red eyes in your photo using the Zoom Tool or just using "Ctrl + Mousewheel".
  • Click and drag from the centre of the red eye outwards, to drag a circular red eye patch. The red color is removed from the area within this circle.
  • Repeat the above for each red eye in your photo

Can I edit a Red-eye patch?

Editing the shape - go into the Quickshape Tool and you can edit the selected red eye patch just as you edit normal ellipse shapes in your documents.

Adjust the feathering - The edge of the red eye ellipse has a 3 pixel feather applied by default, so there is no hard edge to the area from which the red is removed. You can easily adjust this feather value by selecting the red eye ellipse and adjusting the feather value with the main feather control (on the right hand side of the top bar), in the same way that you edit the feather values of ordinary shapes.

Can I delete a Red-eye patch?

You can select any red eye patch you've applied to a photo by just clicking on it while in the Red Eye Tool. Then you can hit the delete key to remove the selected red eye patch. Alternatively, click the Clear All button on the Red Eye Tool infoBar to delete all red eye ellipses from the current selected photo.
