Hi there, in this video we are going to remove that scary red eye that appears in some photographs. Easy, and quickly in Photoshop. Let's jump in. 
All right let's open up two files, let's go to 'File', 'Open'. In your '09 Retouching' folder, there's two in there called 'Red Eye 01' and '02'. Let's be on Red Eye 01. The two we're looking for is, it would be hiding under your Spot Healing Brush. It looks like a little Band Aid, click and hold that down. And it's this last option here, called the Red Eye Tool. 
All you do is click right in the middle of the red eye. Magic, gets rid of the red eye. There are adjustments up here in terms of Pupil Size and Darken Amount. I never have that trouble, it just works every time, but you might have a special image that needs some adjustment. 
I want you to, on your own, do Red Eye 02, just click on the dots in the middle. 
All right it's a simple tool. Let's get on to the next retouching video.
