CTDL 158: photo touch-up tips

Trying to broaden CTDL into more than just “Charles’s interesting science stories”. I’m a photography nerd (well, I’m just a big nerd in general, but photography IS something I’ve got special interest in), and found these simple little photoshop techniques on Wired to be handy things to pass on. I’ll be firing up Pixelmator in a bit to see how it does using these techniques.

Red Eye

1. For best results, skip Auto Smart Fix and use the Elliptical Marquee tool (b) to trace the iris.
2. Hit Ctrl+U (Apple+U on Macs) to bring up the Hue/Saturation dialog box. Set Saturation to -60, then adjust Hue and Lightness to match the true eye color.
