Eye Popping Eye Colors!
Have you ever wondered how cool it would be to change the eye color within a photo you have taken? Well, this quick and easy Photoshop tutorial will teach you how to do just that!
To begin, open the image you want to edit in Photoshop. To make the editing easier and more precise, zoom your image to the eye or eyes that you wish to change. (TIP: you can use the zoom command CTRL + or CTRL – to zoom in or out of your image). Next you will select your paint brush and choose a size that is appropriate for your image. At this time you will also change the hardness of your brush. This depends on preference but a suggested size to use would be around 30%. After you have done this hit Q or the Quick Mask button to go into the Quick Mask mode.The icon is depicted below.
Now you will use the brush that you have selected to paint in the area of the iris. After you are happy with the paint job, exit the Quick Mask mode to get back to the original image. Hit Q again to complete this command. At this point everything but the eye should be selected.
The next step will be to create a layer from the selected portion by hitting CTRL+J. After this layer is created hit CTRL+B to bring up the color balance. Choose any color that you like and play around with other edits till you are happy with your eye color change! Here is an example of a possible eye color change. Enjoy!
