These tutorials are liable to be about anything from my current project to something that drove me nuts trying to figure out. It is my hope that the things I can convey here will save you time and frustration.

Serious Red-Eye Fixer Upper

Using the Color Replacement brush to zap stubborn red-eye

I don't know about you, but I really hate it when the light of my camera flash occurs too fast for the iris of my subject's eye to close the pupil, making the light pass through the blood-rich area alongside the iris (called the choroid) and strike the retina. Then some of the light is reflected back out through the iris, and the camera records it, even though that light has now passed through the reddish choroid twice.
