Our lil Shelby is almost a year old, here she is playing in the snow on a white Christmas :)

I'd like to hear opinions/processes to remove the reflection from her retinas?

Tried that approach with less than desirable results. Surely someone has another solution to try? I know it can't be difficult, I'm getting out of practice with my editing..

Tried to retake the pic by spray painting her eyes with some water soluble Krylon, seemed to work okay for a short while but I couldn't get her to stand still long enough to recreate the pose. Back to the drawing board.

Can't bounce flash off night sky, and no I didn't put anything in her eyes. Thought to get more of an empty reply than "bump" would get. :)

I've yet to find a real good way to clean up pet-eye (usually green). I usually lighten the area using a combination of unmasking and dodging and then fill in the adjacent areas with the dominant eye color. It's definitely not a click one button sort of affair.

Removing pet eye.

There are a few tutorials on YouTube..

Example 1: http://www.youtube.com​/watch?v=rSPuv_-3V4w (external link)

Text notes of the above process:


1) Use "quick selection" tool to select the eyes.

Select --> Modify --> Expand (by 1 pixel)

Leave the white reflection in the pupil.

Hover over the white reflection using the quick selection, hold down 'alt' and single click to deselect.

2) Crate a new layer ( Cntrl + J ) or Layer --> New --> Layer Via Copy

Lock transparent pixels on this layer .. so when you paint you'll only be painting on the eyes

3) Brush tool 'darken' .. Opacity 75-80%. Select black as your paint color

4) desaturate layer ( Cntrl + Shift + U) or Image --> Adjustments --> Desaturate

5) paint over eyes with black

Quick example (this is a Boxer I'm fostering):

Example 2:

If anyone else has any tips please do advise as this is pretty common when dealing with pet photos..

Thank you Mdaniel, I hadn't thought to look on youtube for a tutorial. I'll give this a run this afternoon.
