Enhancing eyes in GIMP 2.8 Before & After images

In close up portraits, in most scenarios eyes are the most important part of the image. Correct usage of light will ensure us a good exposure, but it's not enough to make those eye catch viewers attention. Some post processing is necessary to be done.

In this tutorial I will show you how to enhance eyes in GIMP 2.8. I use levels, Dodge/Burn Tool, a few layers and High Pass Filter for sharpening.

If you don't have GIMP yet, download it from here.

Also you might need FX-Foundry if you want to use my method of sharpening, download script from here.
