Here, I’m painting around the outer edge of one of the eyes with a small brush, with black as my Foreground color, to hide any areas where the new green color extended out into the white part of the eye: Painting with black on the layer mask to remove any unwanted green areas. Here, after cleaning up the effect by painting on the layer mask, is my final result:

Written by Steve Patterson. In this Photo Retouching tutorial, we’ll learn a very simple technique for changing someone’s eye color in a photo using a Hue/Saturation adjustment layer! Of course, there’s no shortage of ways to change colors in an image with Photoshop , but whether you know which color you want to use or just want to play around and experiment, a Hue/Saturation image adjustment makes changing eye color easy, fast and fun! Download our tutorials as print-ready PDFs! Learning Photoshop has never been easier! Here’s the image I’ll be using:

The original image. Let’s get started! Step 1: Zoom In On The Eyes Before we begin, let’s make it easier to see what we’re doing by zooming in on the eyes in the photo. Select the Zoom Tool from the Tools palette, or press the letter Z on your keyboard to select it with the shortcut: Select the Zoom Tool. With the Zoom Tool selected, click and drag out a selection box around the eyes. This is the area we’ll be zooming in to:

Drag out a selection box around the eyes. Release your mouse button, and Photoshop fills the document window with the area you selected:

Photoshop zooms in on the selected area. Step 2: Select The Lasso Tool Next, we need to select the eyes so we’re not affecting any other areas of the image. For that, we’ll use the Lasso Tool . Select the Lasso Tool from the Tools palette, or press the letter L on your keyboard to quickly select it with the shortcut: Select the Lasso Tool. Step 3: Draw Selections Around The Eyes With the Lasso Tool selected, drag a selection around one of the eyes. Don’t worry if your selection outline isn’t perfect since we’ll clean things up later. Once you have the first eye selected, hold down your Shift key and draw a selection around the other eye. Holding down the Shift key will add the new selection to the previous one, allowing us to select both eyes at once: Select the first eye, then hold down Shift and select the other.

We don’t need the pupils in the center of the eyes selected, so let’s remove them from the selection. Hold down your Alt (Win) / Option (Mac) key and drag around each pupil with the Lasso Tool. This will remove them from the selection, leaving us with only the colored area selected. Again, don’t worry about being overly precise for now: Hold down Alt (Win) / Option (Mac) and drag around the pupils to deselect them.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
