    Hi,

    I have a photo of an animal that has a blue eye from the camera rather
    than a red eye. How would I get rid of that (say make it brown or
    look like a real eye)?

    And I also don't like part of the animals fur (it's backside) and I
    would like to replace it with say fur from the rest of the animal that
    looks nice.

    Thanks,

    There are many tutorials online that show you how to do this. Here's
    one: http://graphicssoft.about.com/od/redeyeremoval/ss/peteye.htm
    If you Google the phrase "Photoshop correcting pet eye" you will find
    more. I also Googled "Photoshop pet blue eye" and found several.

    In Photoshop, there is always more than one way to do anything.

    That can be done. I would do it taking a selection from the good fur
    and pasting it in the same spot on a new layer , then using a layer
    mask above that painting out the flat fur with a soft brush. How
    successful you'll be depends on your experience with layer masks and
    the image itself. You might try some cloning first to see if that
    works.

    A good selection of the eyes could be some problem to some people, then
    blending could be other problem. But I don't think the dog want to order a
    large print like 20x30" 36X40" so you may be ok.

    There are many different ways, but one of the simplest ways is to select
    the eyes then use either Hue/Sat, and just about any Color adjusting tool
    then you should be able to have any color you wish.
    If you can do the EYES then you should be able to do its nose, it tounge,
    its ears, and of course its fur. You can use Mask, Clone, Layer etc. to
    replace just about any part of the photo.

    1. If the color doesn't match the specific part so well (because different
    part may have different lighting/shade) then you can use Color or any
    adjusting tool to change to what you want

    2. If the fur/hair doesn't go to same direction, then you can always use
    tool to rotate to any direction you want.

    3. If you don't like its own hair but you want to paint to it then sure you
    can use Photoshop own option to do it.

    I don't remember the name, and all small detail where to get to this
    option (not too hard but I just dont remember). Also, I have never done
    animal fur/hair to know if it's any easier/harder than human. But on human
    I have used few times and it worked great.

    Well, I will give it a shot! I'm not that good at much with image
    editing programs (not yet).

    Thanks so much!
