part 1:How to change the color of the eyes in a photo ?

Changing the color of the eyes is one of the most used technique that photographers use and it can be achieved in many ways - using photoshop - and in this tutorial we will mention two way to do so ... so without much delay we start.

Part 1 : using Hue/stauration

  • open the photo you want to change in photoshop and zoom in to the eye .. here i am going to use the poster from the movie "face-off" if you want to save the image right-click on it and choose "save image as".We are going to work on john travolta's eye so we will zoom in to the eye ... to do that choose the "zoom tool"1 and make a Rectangular around his eye.. this will zoom in and center the eye.

  • Now, we need to select the eye without selecting any of the skin and a very usefull way to do that is to click on the "Edit in quick mask mode" - shortcut Q - which is marked on the image above then select the "brush tool" and start painting over the eye very carefully untill you are sure that you have the eye exactly.... dont worry the pink color is only for guiding you and it wont affect the image.

  • Switch back to the "Edit in Standerd Mode" - the button is selected in the image above- .
  • You will see that a selection has been made to the whole image except the area that we painted so we will inverse the selection using "select>inverse" "shortcut ctrl+shift+I" this will select the area of the eye that we have done.
  • now we will change the color of the eye .. to do that click " Image> Adjustment> Hue/Stauration" .. select "colorize" and enter the value as the image below.. you can change the values to get the color you want .

  • thats it.. click OK and you will find that the color of the eyes had changed like below.... this technique is great because it can be used for a lot of other stuff that I will mention in other tutorials in the future.
