One of the best programs I have found for red eye reduction is Photo Delux. It came with a scanner I bought 5 or 6 years ago. It leaves no glare.

Phil,

How much custom editing does PhotoDeluxe require to remove the glare from the photo in question?

I know almost anything can be fixed with pixel level brush editing, but for an automated red eye tool this is a really difficult photo.

If PhotoDeluxe can automate it I'd like to study it for algorithm research purposes.

By 'glare' you probably mean burned out highlights, i'e white without detail you can't put back! You can cover these areas matching un burned areas but the effect needs care, particularly on skin which can end up looking unreal.

There are some posts here in 'Flash' about this. The advice was put makeup on before the shot, bounce the flash off the ceiling, or add a diffuser to the flash.

You select the area to repair and then click the removal tool.

Sorry, voxmagna, my original post was unclear. I have edited it for clarification.

OK I see now it's eye sparkle. Actually I sometimes find this useful, to white balance to in post, if there's nothing else in the pic!

I wou;dn't want to remove 'eye sparkle', it 'deadens' the eyes. Adobe's Photo Deluxe does a good job, but often I have to click the 'remove' button several times until all the red is gone, and this often 'deadens' the white 'eye sparkle'...Ulead's Photoimpact does the best job for me, once you understand that an increase in red tolerance actually ends up being 'less red'...go figure!
Blessings, Johnny
