Softpedia Editor's Review for ArtEyes
Quickly remove the red-eye effect from digital photos by reducing saturation or by changing the eye color.
Written by Elena Opris on February 7th, 2012
ArtEyes is a very simple tool that can help you remove red eye effects or change the eye color of a person.
The interface of the program consists of a standard window in which your options are pretty much limited.
You can add a file from your hard drive by using the file browser (the "drag and drop" method is not supported, at least not in Windows 7).
Now, all you have to do is pick a new eye color from the color palette or a sample from the image.
Once you click the eye area, you can move the mouse cursor over the center of the eye and press and hold the left mouse button till the pupil changes color. The right mouse button cancels this action.
When you are satisfied with the results, you can save the image in the JPG, TIF or BMP format, as well as print it and configure printing options.
Moreover, you can use the "Undo" button, zoom in and out of the image, select the next file in the current folder and open an image from the scanner or camera.
The program uses a low-to-moderate amount of system resources, includes a well-drawn help file with images and didn't cause us any problems during our tests.
However, the functionality provided by ArtEyes can be found in most advanced graphic editing tools, so the program is not indispensable. But if you want a straightforward solution for changing eye color, then you can't go wrong with ArtEyes.
