Thank you but the best work I did on this image was giving up and asking for help. Each year I do a "retrospective" and I really wanted to use this photo but I was growing so frustrated I was ready to give up.

Here is an early, untweaked version of the 2008 collage:

He sure is a cutie. I can see why he's already having to fend off the girls. He's going to be a very handsome dude when he gets older.

@Ragman,

Even better process is the red-eye removal tools in Paintshop Pro 7. They have one for human red-eye and animal green-eye.


That's exactly what I used. The hardest part was getting the targeting right so the dog doesn't look cross-eyed or doped up.

Here's a link to the latest version of the software if you want to give it a try. They have a 30 day trial on the full download.

I have not tried anything past Paintshop Pro 7 I purchased more than 5 years ago. I am still very satisfied with what it does. Therefore, I can't vouch for the software after Corel took it over, but I still read good things about it. I had learned Photoshop at work and that knowledge made learning the similarly organized Paintshop Pro very easy.

He certainly is a handsome boy, no question about it. He looks like a happy
camper too, and he's growing up. The last picture with the dog shows that very
clearly. Very nice pictures, boomer.

I think he's a cutie too! He really is a good kid.

I'm just about to be able to finish up a collage I've been working on for year -- literally! I'm just waiting until after his next birthday to plug in a 2009 photo:

@Ragman,

You can highlight it -- selecting only the affected green-eye area. Then perhaps desaturate the color (removing all tint or hint of color). Be aware that you might need to darken exposure of that selected area too.



Gonna try this because I have the same problem. Demon dog eyes. I have PSE as well.

@Bella Dea,
Be sure to add back that sparkle of life in the eyes by correctly placing a touch of higlight, otherwise they look like the hollow eyes of a dead being.

@Ragman,
Hi there, I'm from Nova Scotia, I found your msg on this site and there was no address to email you so I'm going to try this. If you get it could you answer me please. My name is Patricia Muise, I'm from Nova Scotia and I have a couple dog pics that have that "green" eye. I've tried to fix it with photoshop CS2 but can't do it so that it looks at least halfway natural. The pic is of Marley, she belongs to my brother-in law and she had to be put down on Saturday, she was full of cancer. I took some pics of her on Friday night and ended up with the "dreaded green eyes". I want to print off the pics for Him and the "old fellow" who looked after her when he was gone away. I would appreciate it if you could help me out.
