Photoshop, real-image

Step 1: Zoom in on the eyes

Let’s zoom in on the eyes to make it easier to see what we’re doing. Select the Zoom Tool from the Toolbar. To center the eyes on your screen after you’ve zoomed in, press the H key on your keyboard to switch to Photoshop’s Hand Tool, and then click and drag the image into position: Photoshop, Zoom

Step 2: Select the lasso tool

To change the eye color without affecting the rest of the image, we first need draw a selection around the eyes. Select the Lasso Tool from the Toolbar

Photoshop, Lasso-tool

Step 3: Make a selection around the eyes

Draw a selection around one of the eyes.

Photoshop, Select, Lasso, Tool

With the first eye selected, press and hold your Shift key. A small plus sign ( + ) appears in the lower right of your Lasso Tool cursor. Holding the Shift key tells Photoshop to add the selection you’re about to draw to the selection you’ve already drawn. Draw a selection around the second eye. Both eyes should now be selected:

Step 4: Add a hue/saturation adjustment layer

To change the eye color, we’ll use a Hue/Saturation adjustment layer. In the Layers panel, click the New Fill or Adjustment Layer icon.

Photoshop, Color, Layer

Choose Hue/Saturation from the list.

Photoshop, Hue-Saturation

Step 5: Select the “Colorize” option

The controls and options for the Hue/Saturation adjustment layer appear in Photoshop’s Properties panel. Turn on the Colorize option by clicking inside its checkbox.

As soon as you select Colorize, the person’s eyes will turn red. Red is probably not the color you’re going for, so we’ll learn how to change it next.

Step 6: New eye color With the hue slider

To choose a different color for the eyes, drag the Hue slider
