quick fix for closed eyes?

Does anyone have a quick fix to open my daughter's eyes in this pic?

Hi,

Have you considered cloning from a compatible picture ? If you have another picture where your daughter is smiling, you might get very lucky and clone from this picture.

{sigh} I guess I'll just have to search and tinker with it a little.

My son-in-law took the picture with a point-and-shoot digital camera. I should have taken my Rebel XT over there on Halloween to take pictures. At 3 shots per second for several seconds you can usually get a photo where everyone's eyes are open.

Jo, that's the only option open to you. Make sure you find a picture with her face in as close to the same profile as you can so they will look right. I guess you have today's challenge to work on! :lol:

That's the kicker, Pauline, finding her face at the same angle. I'm sorry to say that I don't take many shots of my own "children" -- mostly the grandkids. Well...babies are so cute!

Maybe -and it's a big maybe- you can clone the eyes even if the face is at a different angle. Try to clone each eye separately at each own layer and then rotate them to match the angle.
Good luck

Pauline, I actually did find a photograph of my daughter from a couple of years ago where the angle was just about the same. I had to rotate it slightly but not much. The color tone is different on the two pics (difference in daylight and at night), but I got down to 1 pixel to erase the skin around the eyes -- her eyes still look a little red-rimmed, but hey! Her eyes are open!

Now if someone could tell me how to make a gif of the 2 versions so that she's blinking, I'd love to try that!

Hey.. it turned out quite ok !! :-)

Animated gif :

Put both pictures in separate layer, in the same document. In the save for web dialog, choose GIF as a format, and check Animation (a little under the format). At the bottom, you'll see options for the animation (duration, etc).

Hope this helps !

Thanks, Ray. It sounds easy enough. I'll give it a shot!

Jo, great job!! Looks good to me. Probably the only way anyone could tell it was a cut and paste job would be if they blew up the picture and really examined it!
