Step 4: Add A Hue/Saturation Adjustment Layer With the eyes now selected, we’re ready to change their color! For that, we’ll use a Hue/Saturation adjustment layer. Click on the New Adjustment Layer icon at the bottom of the Layers palette (it’s the circle split diagonally between black and white), then select Hue/Saturation from the list of adjustment layers that appears:

Click on the New Adjustment Layer icon and choose Hue/Saturation from the list. Step 5: Select The “Colorize” Option If you’re using Photoshop CS4 as I am here, the options and controls for the Hue/Saturation dialog box will appear inside the Adjustments Panel which is new to CS4. In Photoshop CS3 and earlier, a Hue/Saturation dialog box will appear on your screen. Select the Colorize option by clicking inside its checkbox: Select “Colorize”. As soon as you select Colorize, you’ll see the eyes change color in the document window:

The eyes instantly change color. Step 6: Adjust The Hue, Saturation And Lightness To change the color, simply adjust the Hue , Saturation and Lightness options by dragging their sliders left or right. Hue will change the basic color, Saturation changes the saturation of the color, and Lightness affects the overall brightness. Be careful not to drag the Saturation or Lightness sliders too far to the right, though, since things can quickly become unnatural looking. The image in the document window will continually update as you move the sliders so you can see a live preview of the changes: Dial in the color you want with the Hue, Saturation and Lightness sliders.

When you’re happy with the new color of the eyes, click OK to exit out of the Hue/Saturation dialog box (Photoshop CS4 users can leave the Adjustments Panel open since there’s no need to close it). Here’s my image after changing the woman’s eyes from blue to green: The Hue/Saturation adjustment makes it easy to select any color you want for the eyes. Step 7: Select The Brush Tool If your initial selection of the eyes with the Lasso Tool wasn’t perfect, cleaning things up is as easy as painting with a brush! Select Photoshop’s Brush Tool from the Tools palette, or press the letter B to select it with the keyboard shortcut: Select the Brush Tool. Step 8: Select The Hue/Saturation Layer Mask If we look in our Layers palette, we see our Hue/Saturation adjustment layer sitting above the image on the Background layer. One of the great things about adjustment layers is that they include a built-in layer mask , which makes it easy to control exactly which areas of the image are affected by

the adjustment layer and which are not. All we need to do is paint on the layer mask with our brush, but first, we need to make sure the layer mask is selected. You should see a white highlight border around the layer mask’s thumbnail, which means the mask is selected. If you don’t see the highlight border, simply click directly on the thumbnail to select the mask: Make sure the layer mask for the adjustment layer is selected. Step 9: Paint On The Mask To Clean Up The Selection
