Red-Eye in Digital Pictures

Let’s say that you have a great picture which features your loved one in the perfect angle and lighting, but unfortunately with the dreaded red-eye. This can be really frustrating, but fortunately there is a solution to this problem. This can be easily fixed using Picasa and similar types of software. I think that using Picasa is convenient so that is why I am going to present you with this solution. However, keep in mind there are other programs capable of doing the same taks as well.

• Download and install Picasa from
• Run the program and select “Basic Fixes” from the left side.
• One of the basic fixes is conveniently named “Redeye”.
• Hold and drag your mouse around each eye to get rid of the redeye. It is important to select the pupil area, and not the whole eye.

Now you know why I said it can be easily fixed. Remember that there is no need to get rid of a perfectly good picture just because of such minor problems. Of course, there are many other ways you can edit your pictures, but removing red-eye is probably the most useful thing to do.
