So I had a really cute picture of my cat Oscar, but it was taken with my sister's cheapo HP camera, so Oscar had some terrible yellow-eye:

 -

So I tried to adjust the Levels or even the Hue/Saturation to get Oscar's eyes looking normal, but all of the adjustments put unnatural black spots on his eyes. Because his eyes were such a flat yellow, there was nothing to work with.

However, I do have other pictures of Oscar with his eyes open. I selected the area around his eyes, copied it out of that picture, and then pasted each eye onto a new layer of the botched picture. After a little clonestamp magic, Oscar looks much like his normal self again.

ta da!

Good job, especially counting the fact that alein cats are much harder to fix than human vampires. To fix red eyes, all you have to do is create a new layer, select it, fill the red eye areas with 100% black and change the layer blending option to saturation. Too bad that doesn't work on cats...

Dangit, now I can't even use the "you stole my line" line.

It works on dogs. I've used that technique to fix Kerry's eyes in some pics.

Very nice job on the 'shop, your pride is justified! (Hey, that rhymes...). I did a similar thing with two pictures, one in which the adult's eyes were closed, one in which my son's eyes were closed -- switcheroo, and now I've got a great picture of the two! On the other hand, now anytime I take a great picture and show it to family, they think I've been busy on the computer again... [Roll Eyes]

Great work, goo! And Oscar looks really happy to have his chin scratched. [thumbsup]

I don't know what I was thinking... it seemed like a good idea at the time.

This definitely presents an opportune occassion to reflect on the correct spelling of "ta da!"

I am of the camp of "taa daa!" spellers, but curious linguistic variants also exist. Such as:

"Ta Daa!"
"Taa Da!"

or even:

"Taaa Daaa!"

"Ta Da" presents a buffudling puzzle and a dialect I have yet to see. I will probably scratch my chin until it's cleanly shaven. Now back to the lab.

Oh... and nice work on the kitty, too.

I think 'ta daa' is most appropriate, because it puts stress on the last syllable (short ta, longer (but not too long) 'da').
