Hiya!  Hope you both are doing well and wishing you a wonderful holiday season.  So, last night was our office party and while I didn’t take as many photos (With IPhone) as I would have liked, the few that I did take have some people’s eyes showing up with white pupils. Google photo editing tools does not fix it and neither does Snapseed.   If I fire up the old laptop, do you think Picasa will do the trick?   It is a Windows 10 laptop. It has been forever since I last used Picasa and to tell the truth I’m not even sure if it is on my laptop. If it doesn’t take care of white-eyed pupils, do you have any other suggestions?  Thanks.

hmmm – I’m really not sure. But, if it doesn’t do it automatically – you should still be able to do it manually. See this video

116.PI-Fix Redeye

You may also want to try the new Google Photos markup tool, especially if you have a phone with a pen like the Note 9.

  • Open the photo and tap edit
  • notice the new little squiggle button – that is markup
  • Tap the black color at the left side
  • tap the pen tool
  • try to draw in the black on the iris yourself

Let me know how it goes.

Thanks for your help.  I haven’t gotten on the computer yet to try red eye fix in Picasa (which I am hopeful to find already installed on it when I get time to check it out).  But I did try to use your second suggestion on both my mobile devices, iPhone 6S+ and iPad Pro.  I first went automatically to GP but found no squiggle button. Then went to the native photo app and again, no squiggle button but found they had a red eye fix in those editing tools.  Had some minor success using that.  First eye I worked on fixed itself properly but the next few had a type of a pattern fix as opposed to solid color fix giving my coworker friends a bit of a robotic look to their eyes.  I will definitely attempt to get on laptop with Picasa in next week or so. Will let you know how that goes as well.

Oh yea – that markup option in Google Photos editing is only on Android.
