Re­move red eyes and blem­ishes with­out soft­ware

PHOTO EDIT­ING

While edit­ing the pho­tos I took at a re­cent fam­ily party, I no­ticed a few pho­tos with red-eye ef­fects. Also in one photo my vain cousin had a par­tic­u­larly un­for­tu­nate spot he wanted to re­move. I found both easy to do us­ing the free ver­sion of the photo-edit­ing web­site Pixlr.

Go to www.pixlr.com, click the down­ward-point­ing ar­row at the bot­tom, Launch Web App on the left, Open Im­age From Com­puter, then nav­i­gate to and open the photo you want to fix. To re­move blem­ishes, click the ‘Spot heal tool’ (see screen­shot), then click to se­lect all the blem­ishes you want to re­move. Sim­i­larly, to re­move red-eye ef­fects, click the ‘Red eye re­duc­tion tool’ and click the red eyes in your photo to re­move them. When you’re done, press Ctrl+s, move the Qual­ity slider to the right, name the photo and choose where you want to save it on your PC.
