I'm looking for some filter for photoshop - you all know the red eye's problem i guess

I know about one plug in but he is not free...

SO if anyone knows about some free Filter or Plugin that remove those RED EYES

please let me know

thanks in advance

The program to remove red eyes is called Photoshop! :thumbsup:

hey moony, another trick without the use of a plugin, is to, make a selection of the eye, go to image>adjust>selective color, there you can fine tune the area by removing the red and magenta colors.

If I may add my mine...

Select the red eye portion with a small feather radius (2 or 4 pixels depending on the size of the image) press ctrl+U to open the hue/saturation dialog (menu-adjustment-hue/saturation)

in the edit: dropdown menu select red (ctrl+1)
Lightness=-80 or -90
click ok

Then again ctrl+U
edit. magenta (ctrl+6)
Lightness=-80 or -90
Click ok

You can make it as an action.

It worked fine for me.

the quick and dirty way :)

-spongetool set to desaturate 100%

-click the eye

80% of all cases this will pass as a normal photograph
i use this when i ahve to correct large batches of foto's like as in wedding receptions and such...

for glamorous portraits i use the "select iris/ hue-saturation" method

Recently, I improved my "paths" skills in Photoshop and fixing red eyes became a piece of cake ;)

A good way to fix red-eye is:

Duplicate the layer
Copy either the green or the blue channel into the red channel
Mask out the edited layer so that the modification in step 2 effects only the eyes

Hello to you all

I know I am very late with my response ( well - very very very late I know...sorry!)

but I did read all of your suggestions and tried them

And indeed I found out that the hue/saturation solution is the closest to solve the problem with

Photoshop without any plugging or actions or whatever...

So thanks!!!
