I am looking for the quickest way to fix this problem: the crazy colored eyes that happen when the flash hits a dog's eyes.
It is really annoying to capture a pretty decent shot of a dog, only to have the ghoulish colored eyes ruin everything about the image. I know that dogs have a wide range of ghoulish colors when it comes to them getting pet eye. But no matter what wrong color they come out, is there a quick fix for this?
Photo editing programs have red eye repair for humans, but it basically never works on pets' eyes.
Why don't they have anything simple like that for pets? A one or two step solution: remove the ghoulish color, insert correct color!
It would be great to have a large spectrum of colors to use (thinking about cats here, since dogs usually have brown, amber or blue eyes and cats tend to have more color variations.)
I have taken domestic rabbit photos. Some had red eyes and I used the human red eye function on the bunny's image to see what would happen but it didn't work. Out of frustration I find natural light makes my life easier, so I try to stick with that — which I am sure is obvious to all who have done pet photography. But some of your best opportunities for a great animal shot can happen indoors.
What is the easiest and quickest way to fix the pet eye phenomena? I have Adobe Photoshop 7, PhotoShop Essentials version 9, and a bunch of other photo editing programs. I am pretty tired of hand rendering my boxer's eyes by hand. It takes work to get just the right brown and not make it look painted in.
