How To Easily Change Eye Color Photoshop


As it is with every Photoshop trick, there are a variety of ways to change someone’s eye color in Adobe Photoshop. In this tutorial I will be showing you a quick and easy way to change eye color using Quick Selecting, Masking, and Using Adjustment Layers.

  1. Open your image in Adobe Photoshop. Open File
  2. Duplicate the background image. We won’t be doing much with it, I have just always made it a habit to do this for the sake of non destructive editing.
  3. Grab your Quick Selection Tool and select around the iris of the eye. Quick Selection ToolThe selection doesn’t have to be absolutely perfect because we can clean the mask up later. Just try to get it close. Duplicate Background Layer copy
  4. Once your selection is made, create a Layer Group.  Rename your Layer Group.
  5. Then add a Layer Mask from the selection to the Layer Group.  Create Layer Mask
  6. Next we’re going to want to clean up the mask. To do this, click on the Layer Mask Thumbnail and press the backward slash (\) on your keyboard to bring up the red Mask Overlay.Use a soft Brush to clean up the mask. Also, feather the selection some. For this image, I feathered it 2.5 px. With Brush Clean up Eye Mask
  7. Now add a Hue/Saturation Adjustment Layer under the Layer Group. Create Hue Sat
  8. Check the box next to Colorize and move the sliders to get the eye color you want. I tried to keep this one looking a little natural, but feel free to go as crazy with the color as you want. 
  9. Make your final touches or clean up on the mask. Save your image and share your work!  Screen Shot 2016-01-13 at 11.24.48 AM
