How to remove red eyes from a photo?


It often happens that the resulting colored photos have the red-eye effect, i.e. red pupils in photos of eyes. It occurs when using a photographic flash very close to the camera lens (as with most compact cameras) in ambient low light. But you can easily remove red eyes within the Soft4Boost Photo Studio program interface using the Red Eye Correction tool.

Step 3: Remove the red-eye effect

As soon as you select an image by double-clicking it, the Edit tab will be opened. Find the RedEye button there and left-click it once to open the Red Eye Correction tool settings.

After that hover the mouse cursor over the photo within the Preview Area - you will see an applying area beside it. Move the mouse cursor to one of the red eyes. In the tool settings section change the Size of the applying area so that it covers the eye.

You can do that by dragging an indicator along the slider or entering a value from 5 to 200 in the field next to the slider using the keyboard and then pressing the Enter key. Then click the left mouse button and the retina color will be corrected. Follow the same procedure to bring other eyes displayed in the photo their natural color back.

That's all! So easily you can remove the red-eye effect and correct your photo.
