Any solution for the red eyes??
Chloramphenicol works quite well.
Move flash further away from camera.
As regards Gimp, you can take a look at G’MIC as well:
red eye-attenuation filter
In addition, you can try Digikam.
A new improved tool was added since 5.2 version:
I really don’t want to advertise (especially as we’re on open source here and the the book is not for free), but there’s a really good book about photographic ligthing (google for
Light Science and Magic to find it). Sometimes you have to pay for good stuff (as I did in this case).
Having a D7000 with pop-up flash, I occasionally get it with certain subjects. My niece has big, bright red pupils in the photos I shot of her maternity shower. I tried a bunch of tools, but most were rather draconian, e.g., color the entire area gray, or somesuch. So, I wrote a redeye tool for my raw processor that allows selection of the eye center, then works its way out to a radius doing the following for each pixel:
- compute the average of the G and B tones
- if the R tone is 1.5 times greater than that average, replace the R with the GB average value.
In a working color space where no single color dominates, this works quite well to render a pupil that retains some highlight. It’s in rawproc 0.6, which I’m going to release in a week or two. If you want a compile-from-scratch adventure, you can clone the master branches from here:

Another example of RawTherapee newlocallab branch.
Where can I download this branch?
There are various development-series builds here for mac and windows including newlocallab.
Thank you so much HIRAM!
Good technique, adapted it to Gimp. Not very hard to script, either.
