Red eye reduction doesn't work that well on cameras. You would be better off importing your photos into a program like Picasa and fixing the red eyes there. Picasa's red eye removal is one of the best out there and very simple to use.
What you could also try is diffusing the flash somewhat. Put a piece of tissue paper over your flash is one way to do it. Or try bouncing the light from the flash off the ceiling with a piece of card (I've even used a piece of torn paper plate to do this)
The IXUS 900 Ti is called the SD900 in some parts of the world. You can download the SD900 manual and more from the manufacturer's web site at
I don't know whether this camera has red-eye reduction. It is likely to be found in the setup for the flash, or as a toggle for the flash setting. On some cameras, you toggle through the available flash settings until the icon (usually a lightening bolt) has an eye next to it.
Red eye reduction is not perfect even if the camera offers it. You get a much better solution by using a photo editing program in the computer to remove red eye from your shots. Many such programs have a function just for this that works almost automatically. You may have gotten a photo editing program with the camera, but there are many others downloadable for free on the net, try www.download.com.
I had the same problem with the Canon PowerShot S410. I called Canon and they said it was a known issue. They are going to send me a return, paid postage label and replace the sensor at no cost. Canon rocks!
Here is a link to the product manual:
It states that to turn on red-eye reduction mode (p.43), go to the Camera menu, then set the top setting (red-eye) to "on".
Even if you are unable to get this to work (or if you do get it to work, but are unhappy with the results), there is a really nice free proto organizer (www.preclick.com) that includes a red-eye removal tool that is really simple to use.
