Ever thought that you’d need expensive contact lenses just to have purple eyes in a photo? Well here you have a solution: Photoshop can help you pick whatever color you like for your eyes. Here is a method that will take you no more than 1 minute!
But first… a Sneak Preview!!!
In the next tutorial I’m going to remind you that Photoshop is designed for massive photo editing, in 6 easy steps you edit a photo into something magical. I’ll use Photoshop in this case to make my friend look like an elf. Hope you will enjoy my small presentation and have fun trying it.
About the tutorial
I decided to make this tutorial because it is useful when it comes to serious Photoshop editing. So if you think your eyes would look better in a blue color in a certain picture although your natural eye color is green, Photoshop has the answer; (this is also a good way to see if a contact lens color suits you before you actually buy it).
The 6 Things you have to remember are:
- duplicate layer;
- erase the iris on the background layer;
- use the Magic Wand Tool (W) to select the white circle;
- go to Image – Adjustments – Hue & Saturation and DO NOT FORGET TO SELECT COLORIZE!
- play, experiment with Hue, Saturation and Lightness;
- right click on one layer and select Flatten Image.
You can try it out on the original picture I have used in the video. Please do not steal it or use it to other purpose that training, as it’s copyrighted by us.
