How to Remove Veins and Redness and Retouch Eyes in Photoshop

Last year image editing specialist Michael Woloszynowicz (from vibrantshot), published this 2 part advanced video tutorial, that looks into the eye and how to retouch it using Photoshop.

The are so many issues you can run into when retouching eyes in Photoshop. In many cases you run into stray hairs which happen to just be in front of the eye, maybe the eye is red or shows vains or is simply not that sharp. All these problems are going to be fixed in these two part tutorial by Woloszynowicz who uses frequency separation as the basic tool to work on the image (if you don’t know what  frequency separation is  – make sure you check these videos). The clone stamp tool is also used extensively as well as hue-saturation adjustment layer to remove the redness in the eye.
