How To Remove Glowing Eyes From Pet Pics

When taking pics of people with a classic point-and-shoot camera, we sometimes get those devilish looking red eyes whereas with pets like dogs and cats, the flash may cause their eyes to look blurry and have a glow. This glow is from the reflection of your flash from the back of their retinas. The closer your flash is to your lens, the worse the glow will be. On digital cams the flash is usually right on top of the lens, making it way worse. Fortunately, Kodak announced at CES that it had developed a system to combat the glowing eye problem in pet image, although it won't be available till later this year. Almost all digital cameras have built in red-eye removal so it makes just as much sense to design a camera which addresses the glowing eye problem.
Can't wait to get Kodak's new camera and want to get rid of your dog or cat's glowing eyes yourself? If you are familiar with several Photoshop operations like layers, painting, the magic wand tool and the rubberstamp, then this may be the solution for you. Check out the fixing demonic pet eyes tutorial, where there are step by step instructions on how to manually remove the glow.

This wouldn't work on pets with eyes other than black, obviously. It's also only producing a good result in the sample picture because is poor quality to begin with. A good quality image would look totally fake with solid black eyes and a white, painted on dot.

It probably won't work on a Husky or any other dog with blue eye tones. They lack that green inner core (whatever it is called). I had a lab/husky once and he had one brown eye (which glowed green in pictures) and one blue eye (which glowed red in pictures). A camera that addressed both of these eye problems would have been great :ROTFL:
