Glare from glasses

Hello, How do you remove the glare, the camera made with a flash, on a pair of glasses? I am new and have PSE 7.

Sweater32, it would be helpful to see the image you are having trouble with.

In general, flash flare off of reflective surface like glass is likely to show up as bright white indicating little if any detail. Depending upon what is "behind" the flare on the glass it may be possible to clone in some replacement pixels, e.g, skin behind part of the glasses that didn't show the reflection.

If what you should be seeing behind the flare has a lot of detail, like eyes, it may be difficult to next to impossible to clone in the right replacements to make it look reasonable.

Try posting the picture and you will get a lot of advice.

Jeff

Hi ...

This isn't an easy one to fix ...

You can try cloning over it from another part of the glasses ... or frying copying some of the other half of the glasses and then flipping it over.

One tip for next time you take photographs of someone who wears glasses is to ask them to slightly tip the glasses forward ... that way the flash doesn't reflect in them

It's too late for this picture but I have a suggestion for the future. When you take a pic of someone who has glasses, shoot the pic as usual. Then as soon as that pic is taken, have them remove their glasses, and take another shot.

That way you can just added the part where the lenses should be from the pic without the glasses, but leave the frames. Another way, is to use your flash off the camera and on an angle. That works too.

If you belong to the photoshop elemens user forum there's a video by Dave Cross on the subject that may help, "Fixing Glasses Glare." There's also a tutorial on Youtube at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CMZqvGCB_No

Altohugh the youtube version requires another photo of the subject

Another little trick is to have a glasses screw driver with you and unscrew the part that holds the lenses, remove them(don't mix them up or your subject won't be happy) and take the shot with empty frames.
