Best solution- don't use the flash. Redeye is always a problem andsome ways to reduce it....don't let the eyes look into the flash, use other lighting if possible, remove it with software, and what works best for me- use an auxilliary flash so its not in the same line as the lens.

Thanks all! I'm just learning but have tried a few w/o flash. I know I'm a newbie, what is auxiliary lighting? My camera has a thing w/red eye on it - does that help? My software helps some w/redeye but frequently using the automatic red eye reducer, it says no red eye found but I think it is there. I'm just using the kodak software or picasa - have tried both. What about pet eyes?

Pets most times have green or gold eye problems. That's just the way their eyes are made. The auto red eye programs usually are hit or mis. They either don't do anything or don't do enough! I like the one I have in PSE. It lets you choose a replacement color and then choose how much and how large an area you cover. Then you manually apply the correction! If you use a flash of any kind you will get some red eye regardless of the distance the flash is from the axis line of the lens. The further the bette but you will still get some. Learn and develop the skills to remove them in post processing and then forget about it!

Newscrapper, go up to the top ofthe main kodak forum page to the search block. Type in redeye and check the search only in this forum. This will bring up over three hundred posts on redeye! Just a thought. Hope it helps and answers your question!
