Get rid of glare in eyeglasses

Postby Kareno777 » Mon Nov 30, 2015 4:59 pm

I would like to get rid of the glare in the eyeglasses and still make it look realistic. Can this be done?

Hi,

You might get somewhere by copying the left eye over the top of the right eye, using the erase tool, but it's hard to say how well that might work. You could also use the area treatment to darken the shine by lowering the exposure, to minimise the effect of the shine.

If the glare on the eyeglass is pure white, you cannot recover any part of the eye that has been "blown out". The suggestion of copying the other eye and inserting it over the blown out eye (you would have to flip it horizontally first) is an option but would only look realistic if the subject was viewed straight on and if the subject's eyes were pretty symmetrical. In reality, most people's faces are not completely symmetrical, so if you just mirrored one side of a person's face you would notice that something was "off". The photo that the original poster uploaded looks like a pretty good candidate for mirroring the side of the glasses that doesn't have glare. Not all photos are as good for this method.
