Default red eye setting on D40-zoom

Question re: red eye reduction...It looks like the only mode where I can set it is P mode...Here's my issue..If I want to take a picture of someone in PORTRAIT mode (the one with the woman's head), how can I use red-eye reduc. when my only options are flash on/off???

This seems to be an issue for every mode other than P... I can't imagine that you wouldn't want to use the red-eye reduc. in modes other than P..

HELP!!
Thanks,
MG

I just checked my C700UZ (which I've only owned a week), and it's the exact same thing! Doesn't make sense.

Guess you just have to get out the Photoshop if you use that mode and you get redeye!

Here's a page of tips for Photoshop Elements that ships with Olympus cameras these days (just look for the red eye link...I posted this page instead a direct link because you may find some other tips here):

http://www.arraich.com/elements/psE_intro.htm

it should be done the same way in the regular Photoshop. Some programs like Photodeluxe have an automatic filter which does it (you have to put a mask around the red first, zooming in helps). You should practice doing it because I now do it without thinking.

If you want more tips, head to http://www.google.com and type in PHOTOSHOP RED EYE (that's how I got the above link).

Default To add to my previous response...

Agfa has a great tutorial on red eye removal (and a lot more) in their online (free) photo courses. For the red eye chapter, go to:
http://www.agfanet.com/en/cafe/photo...ont_index.php3

p.s. Photoshop Elements even has a red eye "brush" to fix the problem easier than with Photoshop!
