If you use a flash in a dark environment, the subject’s irises are wide open and their pupils enlarged, the more open the pupils are, the more red eye effect you get in your photos. This is caused by the reflection of a camera flash in a person’s retina. Photoshop has a great tool to help us remove the red eye effect, Photoshop’s Red Eye tool changes the red areas to a dark gray color rather than black, This makes your subject look more natural and enables you to change the eye color later if needed.
