    Yes.... And if you're trying to capture an ACTIVE animal, having a slow
    shutter speed (instead of flash) isn't so good, either.

    I've had that happen, too. Or seen it in other's photos. Sometimes the dog
    is in the background, in a low light room and looks like a demon LOL

    That is nice - bold color. Feel free to divulge any PS steps you use to get
    the results.

    First, all my shooting is RAW.
    So for this particular pussy cat we have the following:

    In ACR;
    Camera Profile= "Camera Standard"
    Lens Profile Correction = Enabled
    WB is set to Temp=5850, Tint= +11
    Fill light = 40; Blacks = 12
    Brightness = +65; Contrast = +30
    Clarity = +65; Vibrance= + 30; Saturation= 0

    CS5:
    Adjust Levels & Curves
    Upward adjustment to vibrance +20

    Convert layer to "Smart Object"
    Apply USM 95%; Radius = 2p; Threshold = 0
    Set "Blend Mode" to "Luminosity"
    Invert "Smart Filter" layer mask to black.
    Paint the cat in white on layer mask to selectively apply USM.
    Crop to taste (in this case 12 x 8 @300 ppi)

    Apply my frame action which effectively does the following:
    1: Duplicates layer
    2: Image -> Canvas size -> (uncheck relative) add 0.4 inch to each
    dimension (Canvas extension color Black)-> OK.
    3: Top layer "Blending Options" Layer style = add stroke: size= 8px:
    Position = outside: Blend mode = normal: Color = White
    4: Merge visible layers
    5: Image -> Mode -> 8Bit

    All done, save resizing for the folks on the web. In this case 867 x
    1280 compressed to about 287 KB.

    Nice. I've just been getting into using blending modes. And never think
    to convert to Smat Object (but should).

    I ended up with a picture of my dog with green eyes. I was taking pics
    outside last night and the flash came on. So I came back here to reread the
    posts.
