Go to the picture from which you want to remove the red eyes. Then , right click on the image and from the open with menu , select Microsoft Picture Manager.



This will open the program and load your picture to it.
Now select the edit picture button.



This will bring up a toolbar at the left of the window with the photo editing tools.



1) On the bottom of the toolbar , zoom using the slider so that you can clearly see the eyes you want to edit.
2) Then , on the right hand toolbar , select the Red Eye Removal Tool.

Now click on the eyes you want the red removed from. A little red eye should appear after clicking.




After selecting all eyes , click the okay button. This will fix the eyes selected.



After the eyes are fixed , just click on the save button or select save from the file menu.


IF YOU DON'T HAVE OFFICE INSTALLED

Download and install Red Eye Remover by clicking HERE.
Now , drag your picture into the program.



Now , use you mouse wheel to zoom in and center you screen so that you can see the eyes you want to edit.

Now , simply click and drag a rectangle around the eye and release. The program will automatically detect the red eye and remove the red out of it.



When done, simply click file, save as and either replace the original photo or save it as a new copy.

how to edit picture?


Hi

You don't say which operating system you are using.

Photo Editing requires Photo Editing Software.

To do basic photo editing (cropping, rotating, flipping, adjust brightness, adjust contrast, adjust image size, adjust colo(u)r, adjust exposure, adjust size, adjust red eye) you can use free, built-in software that comes bundled with Windows and Microsoft Office such as: Paint, Microsoft Picture Viewer and Windows Photo Gallery.

In increasing order of editing functions:

Windows Photo Gallery: Fix > Auto Adjust, Adjust Exposure, Adjust Colour, Crop Picture, Fix Red Eye

Microsoft Office Picture Viewer: Picture > Brightness & Contrast, Colour, Crop, Rotate, Flip, Red Eye Removal, Resize, Compress.

Paint: Image > Flip/Rotate, Resize/Skew, Crop, Invert Colours, Adjust Attributes, Clear Image, Opaque.

In Paint you can also use additional tools to manipulate the image or add or delete shapes, text and colour (with a selection of writing or drawing implements): Free Form Select, Select, Fill with Colour, Magnifier, Brush, Text, Curve, Polygon, Rounded Rectangle, Ellipse, Rectangle, Line, Airbrush, Pencil, Pick Colour, Eraser/Colour Eraser.

In Windows Photo Gallery you can view and edit the same image in either of these 3 programs by clicking Open.

For more advanced photo editing, you can use the bundled software that comes with digital cameras such as:

Adobe Photoshop Elements

ACDSee

Picasa

Photo Studio

For more advanced, professional standard photo editing you must buy expensive Photo Ediiting and Graphic Design software such as:

Adobe Photoshop

Adobe LightRoom

Adobe Illustrator

Adobe InDesign

CorelDRAW

Corel Painter


I hope this helps.

    red-eye problem for our baby, but not adults?


    That's normal for all point and shoots when shooting babies. Either bring up the room lights,use the red-eye function with the flash, or use a photo editing program to remove the red-eye.
