How to Remove Red Eye and Other Blemishes From Photos Without PhotoShop

Updated on January 11, 2010

The Pho.to Free Online Editing Service Does It In Seconds

People love to share photos with friends and family. But red eye and other blemishes in photos are common. Expensive photo editing software like PhotoShop can remove these blemishes from photos. However, even those who can afford often find such software difficult to use without extensive training. Pho.to allows users to edit photos for free online in just a few clicks. No technical skills or expensive and complicated software is needed to fix and edit photos for free.

Visit the Pho.to online photo retouching tool and follow these instructions to retouch your photos in a snap:

1. Click the "From Disk" or "Enter URL" button to find the photo that needs editing. Click "Upload" after finding the photo.

2. The service will only work with fairly high-quality photos, but it will still give a general enhancement to a photo. Once the photo is uploaded, the software goes to work automatically. It removes blemishes by slightly changing the skin tone to cover all blemishes. It also covers red eye in photos with a black color to hide the red eye seen in the eye pupils of photos. This process is automatic. It may not do as good of a job as a skilled photo editor using PhotoShop or other photo editing software like Gimp, but it does quite a job for a free and automatic online service.

3. Click "Save to Disk" to save it on the computer or "Share" to get code to place on other sites. Click "Copy and paste the code you need" after clicking "Share" to get forum codes and direct links to the photo. Those who want to use this as an avatar on a forum or social networking website can use the direct URL link to upload it to those sites.

Notes: Upload the photos to your computer before using the retouching tool. Most people upload photos to a computer by using the CD and USB cable provided with a digital camera. Put the CD in the computer first and follow the instructions to install the software. Turn off the camera and then use the USB cable to connect the camera to the computer. Turn on the camera and then use the photo software options to upload the picture to the computer.
