I've had a number of requests for a tutorial on how to fix redeye. Thanks to Phil Sampson, I now have a very cute baby with very red eyes to use for it...

1. Enlarge the image and select the red part of the eye

2. Go to Image > Adjust > Color/Saturation. Click the Colorize box and move the saturation slider to the left until the red disappears

3. If the highlight in the eye has gone muddy, make a new Normal layer and lightly paint in white with the paintbrush tool. Use the blur tool to soften the white a bit.

That's about all there is to it... :)
