"NX2 and Converting eyes back to natural black in CNX2"


CA
          

I have several pictures of Flying Squirrels where, because I used Flash, I need to get their eyes from a translucent white back to black

How can I do it in CNX2?
I can upload a sample tomorrow if needed.

I've had some success with fixing my dog's green/gold flash reflection by using a color control point. I used the color picker option. In my dog's case, I found a tone of brown that came close.

If you upload a sample I can try and see what I can do.

I used the +paintbrush and made it a colorize step. I picked black from the color picker.

I tried a color control point but it wouldn't go to black.

This is a very low-res sample and using the original would give you more pixels to get more accuracy.

Good luck.

Hi Ralph,

I played with the original NEF file yesterday with great results.

I enlarged the picture in Capture and the used the +paintbrush to add black to the eye. This created a reddish eye, so I use the red eye control and the eye actually look close to normal.

Thanks for the advice

Tony

The image quickly get pixelated and unless you use the full res version, you will not get a satisfactory result. Colorize is the way to go but whe you focus on the eye you already see pixelation.

There are so many ways to do this. As pointed out a color Control correction point can do it, even using Auto Red Eye and then re selecting for a different color. I would suggest that the color control point might be the simplest and the I would save the steps for later use if you ever need to do it again.

I just noticed your post and I thought I needed to to say that I have had a series of Southern Flying Squirrels for pets dating back to 1965 or so. They make excellent small mammal pets. Just ask Sir Walter Raleigh! He wrote very affectionately about the virtues of flying squirrels which were commonly kept as pets by the native Americans. He even took his own flying squirrel pets back to England where they were a big hit with the leisure society. He didn't cage his pet squirrels: he let them roam over his body, in and out of his pockets!

My current pet is named Joey and he is a bit over twelve years old! I got him in Dec 1999 which seems like yesterday to me but for him? Well, he is getting pretty old and decrepit and lately he sleeps about 23 hours a day. He is the oldest squirrel I have ever heard of so I guess my animal husbandry skills must be pretty good. I'll post a photo or two soon.
