Removing the Red-eye Effect

For the best possible learning experience please turn on captions when watching this video tutorial.

The red-eye effect is a common problem in photos. It is caused by the light of a camera’s flash reflecting off the retina of the person (or pet) and can ruin an otherwise great photo. PaintShop Pro has tools that can help you fix this, and this tutorial will show you how.  The Red Eye tool instantly replaces the red color in the subject’s pupil with a dark grey color, for a more natural look. But if you want more fine tuning, the advanced Red Eye Removal allows you to make multiple adjustments hue color, iris size, glint and more.
