Auto Red Eye Fix Command in Photoshop Elements 10

The Auto Red Eye Fix command automatically detects and eliminates red-eye in an image. Red-eye happens when a person or an animal (where red-eye can also be yellow-, green-, or even blue-eye) looks directly into the flash.

If for some reason the Auto Red Eye Fix doesn’t quite do the trick, you can always reach for the Red Eye Removal tool on the Tools panel.

Here’s how to remove red-eye manually:

  1. Select the Red Eye Removal tool from the Tools panel.

  2. Using the default settings, click the red portion of the eye in your image.

    This one-click tool darkens the pupil while retaining the tonality and texture of the rest of the eye.

    The Auto Red Eye Fix and the Red Eye Removal tool detect and destroy dreaded red-eye.

  3. If you’re unhappy with the fix, adjust one or both of these options:

    • Pupil Size. Use the slider to increase or decrease the size of the pupil.

    • Darken Pupil. Use the slider to darken or lighten the color of the pupil.

If you’re trying to fix green-eye (or blue-eye) in animals, your best bet is to use the Color Replacement tool.
