  • Press [Ctrl] + [Spacebar] and click the image window to maximize the win¬dow to 150%. This step is optional but highly recommended as you will need a magnified view to work on an area as small as the pupil of the eye.

  • Click and drag the Red Brush Tool over the red spots until they turn dark gray.
  • Next, we need to add reflections to the pupils to make the eyes look more realistic. First, select the Brush Tool from the toolbox. Set Brush to Soft Round, Size to 5 pixels, Mode to Normal, and Opacity to 100%. If the foreground color is not already set to white, click the Default Foreground and Background Colors icon to set the foreground color to black and the background color to white, and then click the Switch Foreground and Background Colors icon to swap the colors
