I’ve been having some success removing red eye using a combination of masks (brush + parametric), but I’m not sure I’ve found the best way yet. I feel that the DeltaE mask should be the best tool because we can pick a colour with it then fine tune the range, but the picker is quite large and won’t isolate the colour well when the subject is small (far away from the camera). I’m wondering if there’s a way to manually enter colour values in a mask to isolate the red in eyes?
Aside from masking the eyes, which of the color correction modes do you find most useful: Standard, separate RGB channels or HSL factors? HSL would seem to have the best options for altering hue, but there’s no way to desaturate in that mode. Only the Standard mode offers negative saturation values.
Any other tips you have for red-eye removal or any fine-tuning of colour correction in general? I’m still learning from trial and error, and there’s probably lots I’m still missing.
