Changing Eye Color in Adobe Photoshop

In this tutorial, we’ll learn a very simple technique for changing someone’s eye color in a photo using a Hue/Saturation adjustment layer.A Hue/Saturation image adjustment makes changing eye color easy, fast and fun! I will be using Adobe Photoshop CC but this can be done in any version of Photoshop.

STEPS

1. Here’s the image I’ll be using.

8. Adjust The Hue, Saturation And Lightness

To change the color, simply adjust the Hue, Saturation and Lightness options by dragging their sliders left or right. Hue will change the basic color, Saturation changes the saturation of the color, and Lightness affects the overall brightness.

Here, I’m painting around the outer edge of one of the eyes with a small brush, with black as my Foreground color, to hide any areas where the new green color extended out into the white part of the eye.

Here, after cleaning up the effect by painting on the layer mask, is my final result.
