Introduction It often happens that the resulting colored photos have the red-eye effect, i.e. red pupils in photos of eyes. It occurs when using a photographic flash very close to the camera lens (as with most compact cameras) in ambient low light. But you can easily remove red eyes within the AVS Photo Editor program interface using the Red Eye Correction tool.

Step 1: Download and install AVS Photo Editor

Click here to download it. After the download is finished, run the AVSPhotoEditor.exe file and follow the installation wizard instructions.

Step 2: Run AVS Photo Editor and find the photo you want to edit

First of all run AVS Photo Editor. To do that find the corresponding program icon on your desktop and double-click it. If you unchecked the Create desktop icon box during the installation, you can run the program from the Start menu. Please follow Start > All Programs > AVS4YOU > Image > AVS Photo Editor.

After the program was launched, on the left side of the window you will see the folder tree that represents the files and folders structure of your computer. Open the necessary folders by left-clicking them. The contents of the folder that contains the image file you want to edit will be displayed in the panel situated at the bottom of the window. Left-click the necessary image and it will be displayed in the Preview Area in the center of the program window.


Step 3: Remove the red-eye effect

As soon as you select an image, make sure that the Editing tab is opened. Find the RedEye button there and left-click it once to open the Red Eye Correction tool settings.

After that hover the mouse cursor over the photo within the Preview Area in the center of the program window - you will see an applying area beside it. Move the mouse cursor to one of the red eyes.


In the tool settings section change the Size of the applying area so that it covers the eye. You can do that by dragging an indicator along the slider or entering a value from 5 to 200 in the field next to the slider using the keyboard and then pressing the Enter key.


Note: for more convenience you can also zoom in the photo you are editing within the Preview Area using the mouse wheel or pressing the Zoom In button at the bottom of the program window.

Then click the left mouse button and the retina color will be corrected. Follow the same procedure to bring other eyes displayed in the photo their natural color back.

Step 4: Save the edited photo

As soon as the needed photo is edited, you can save it. To do that click the File section of the Main Menu situated in the upper left corner of the program window.


Here you can select one of the save options:

  • Save - use it to save the edited photo under the same name and into the same folder (please note that in this case the source image file will be overwritten);
  • Save as - use it to save the edited photo under another name or into some other folder.

After clicking the Save as option, the following window will pop up to let you enter a certain name for your image file and select its location:


Enter a name within the File name field and select a location using the navigation buttons on the left or the Save in dropdown list. Then click the Save button at the bottom of the window.

That’s all! So easily you can remove the red-eye effect and correct your photo.

» Description: Hmm... what to say about this one? It's reminiscent of the closing notes of the opening music from the Three Stooges done in a church organ style with a closing cymbal crash. I'll give this one away gratis, but feel free to check out my free loops and potential upcoming license-mandated ones over in the respective part of Flashkit.
