How to Change Eye Color Using the New Affinity Photo Software

On this video, Howard Pinsky shows you how you can change eye color with the new (currently free) beta of the Affinity Photo software.

 In this tutorial Pinsky shows how to change the blue eyes of a model using the new Affinity Photo software (which you can download as a free beta for MAC from here). Now as you can see, changing blue eyes to any other color is pretty simple, changing brown eyes is a bit different (it requires a black and white adjustment layer and a re-color adjustment).
We have already looked at correcting and improving eyes in images in the past – mostly on Photoshop. Pinsky himself did a similar video using Photoshop called “Quick Tip: How to Change Eye Color in 1 Minute in Photoshop!”. For a more in depth videos check out: “Retouching Eyes in Photoshop: Color, Brighten and Sharpen” by  Aaron Nace from Phlearn, photographer’s Michael Woloszynowicz “How To Brighten Eyes in Photoshop” and Photoshop senior product manager Bryan O’Neil Hughes video on “How to Brighten Eyes in B&W Photos Using Photoshop“.
