Reducing Red-Eye

In this lesson for Photography with the Camera app on the iPhone we look at how we can reuse red-eye when we take a photo using the flash.

What is Red Eye
When you take a photo using the flash, there is a chance that you will get red eye. This happens because the flash is illuminating the blood vessels in the the eyes.

Reducing Red Eye
So how do you get rid of red eye after you’ve taken the photo? If you are in the Camera app, tap on the thumbnail tin the lower left corner, this will open the photos. Swipe to find your photo with red eye. Now you need to tap on Edit, as we are going to edit the photo. If you look in the upper left hand corner of your iPhone, you’ll see an eye. This will only show when you’ve taken a photo with the flash. Tap on the this eye and then just tap on the photo where the red eye is. You may want to zoom in to be more exact. When you tap on the red eye in your photo, it will be reduced, in most cases it will be eliminated. When you are finished, tap on Done.

That’s how we reduce red-eye in the camera app on the iPhone.
