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.
1. Here’s the image I’ll be using.
2. Zoom In On The Eyes.
3. Select The Lasso Tool
4. Draw Selections Around The Eyes
5. Remove pupils from the selection by pressing down “ALT” key on your keyboard.
6. Add A Hue/Saturation Adjustment Layer
7. Select The "Colorize" Option.
As soon as you select Colorize, you’ll see the eyes change color in the document window.
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.
9. Select The Brush Tool
10. Select The Hue/Saturation Layer Mask.
11. Paint On The Mask To Clean Up The Selection.
With the layer mask selected, press the letter D on your keyboard to reset your Foreground color to white.
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.
