Great tutorial. Nice and simple. Thanks Cindi!

Thanks for the tutorial. Since you're a perfectionist, I'm sure you'll want to edit the spelling of "hoarding" and "It's." :-)

Well, being perfect and all :-)
"It's" is the conjunction of it and is which means "it is".
So, probably don't want to fix that one. It's correct!

Great tutorial. Thanks.

My 8 mo. old son loves this picture of the model, he was reaching out to try and touch her. :-)

I'll give this a try with one of my pics, thanks!

Horray, I have a tutorial! Thanks, Langdon!

Nice tutorial.

Any tutorial to somehow replace eyes that get shut because of flash and replace them with eyes of same person from some other snap.
Also what to do in photoshop when a person has small eyes on top of it squints

And a very good tutorial at that Cindi. I applaud you for taking the time and effort to help those of us who are in deep need of it.

Those that have issues with the typos don't have to read it. Damn crabs here are driving me nuts.

Thanks, guys. Glad some of you are finding it helpful! :)

Awesome tutorial, Cindi! :D How do you feel about slightly burning the pupils and dodging the whites of the eyes?

I have heard they are itchy critters - trip to your local chemist might be in order...

A suck-up bump for cindi-lou's eye-pimpin' tutorial.

Cindi, you wanted to know if we'd used it. Yep - during the 30-day self-portrait challenge on my Emotion Wheel shot. I didn't burn my eyelids, but you told us in that thread about the color mode. In fact, I just used the color mode in my light on white entry, and I never would've known about it without you. :)

I do have a few suggestions for the tutorial.

It's most helpful in each step if literally nothing else changes.

From step 2 to step 3, though, you changed the overall contrast in addition to changing the iris color. And then the contrast returned in step 4.

And from step 4 to 5, it looks like you also dodged the inside of your left eye (image right; anyone ever figured out a good language for describing which side of someone's body you mean when they face the camera?).

I know these sound small, but when you're only talking small changes from step to step anyway, they get distracting. And for people just learning the difference between dodge and burn, seeing two changes at once makes the point less clear.

I hope you know I appreciate your taking the time; you're inspiring me to write one myself. But I also hope you take this as constructive criticism to improve an already-great addition to DPC. :)

Is this legal in advanced editing challenges?

I think you are on to something. You are using some of the same technique s as those colored contact lenses. They add a dark line over the limbus (the junction between the cornea and the sclera) and several radial lines over the iris to increase the contrast. Burning the limbus does basically the same thing.

However, taking away all the secondary reflections left the eye looking flat. I think you could get away with a single reflection if that reflection is over the pupil. In your case, I would take away both the reflections on the model's right (in both the right and left eyes), but not the dots over the pupils.

Burning a little eye makeup is a great idea too. Thank you so much for sharing your hard work. Its easy to poke a couple of holes, building the tutorial was the tough part.
