Fixing Pet Eye: No More Demon-Eyed Cats and Dogs!

By January 1, 2008

Follow me on:

If you have a pet you like to take pictures of, you've do doubt encountered those demon-looking pet eyes at some point. Pet eye is the glowing white, green, red, or yellow eye reflections that you often get when taking photos of pets or other animals in low light conditions when a flash is used. Most photo editing software these days has special tools for quickly and easily removing red eye from your photos. But because pet eye is usually not red, these red eye tools often don't work on "pet eye" in your dog and cat pictures. This tutorial shows you a fairly easy way to fix pet eye, simply by painting over the problem part of the eye in your favorite photo-editing software.
