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
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.
