Sometimes you need to make pictures look a bit more magical than they naturally are. That’s where Photoshop comes into play. Using this simple guide, you can learn how to change a person’s eyes to any color you want. This effect is perfect for ads when you want to highlight a certain color or creative projects in general.
How to Get Started Changing Eye Color in Photoshop
Open the photo you want to edit in Photoshop.
Select the eyes using a selection tool like Magnetic Lasso Tool or the Quick Selection Tool if you’re in a rush.
Next, create a new layer.
Select the Brush Tool and paint over the eyes. Don’t worry, this is not the finished product lol.
Go to Select > Modify > Expand… and expand the selection by 3 pixels. This will give you some leeway when it comes to blending the color to your image.
Now go back to Select > Modify > Border… and enter 7 for the width.
After you have completed these steps, press delete to clear and deselect by pressing Ctrl + D.
Change the blending to Color. You can change the opacity too if you like depending on your preference. I’ve kept at 100%.
Click on the Adjustment layer and select Hue/Saturation like you see in the image below.
This will open the Hue/Saturation dialog box. Click on the clipping mask tool. This will clip the layer to the one below it.
Now play around with the Hue & Saturation to get the desired color. No matter what you choose, you should still retain the same shine, glare, and detail of the original image to the eye looks natural, just like you see in the finished product below.
Now you can try creating your own unique images with this amazing step-by-step process.
