    I have a friend who has green eyes but in any photo's I take they show up as
    grey, can anyone tell me (a newbie) how to add a little green to them or
    direct me to a tutorial that might illustrate how to do this.

    Thanks, Dan.

    add a layer, paint over them green on the new layer, try different blend
    modes?

    First off, make sure you're woring in the Adobe RBG 1998 color space, or
    some such space that has a good color gamut. The native space for digital
    camera's is sRGB which tends to be washed out.

    Otherwise, use your fav selection method on the irises and use Selective
    Color or Hue/Saturation to bring up the elusive green values you're looking
    for. Also, in the Hue/Sat. window, try checking the Colorize box and use the
    sliders to get to the Green you're after. Dial it back a bit afterwards to
    avoid the alien-like results you'll bound to get.

    Hope that helps, I did a similar bit on some CD cover comps, see the print
    section of my website- www.RFDco.com

    Hey Rob - nice work!

    I'm sure you must appreciate all the business that acne has provided you!

    hehe

    Some superb work on your site... suddenly my retouching efforts seem a bit
    amateur. Oh well!

    Try this: select the irises and use Image>Adjust>Hue/Saturation to bump up
    the saturation. With luck you'll be able to bring out the actual color
    rather than having to re-create it.
