Hello, My daughter took some prom pics last weekend, and some have red eye that my Canon s/w will not remove, and a couple of pics have white eye (spooky). These are some great shots I want to salvage. Would photoshop help w/ that, or is there some other s/w pkg that would work? If photoshop is the right route, what is the min. rev I s/b considering, 6.0? I'm not going to go crazy w/ it, but just touch up some photo's from time to time. Thanks for any advice......

The microsoft photo editor (part of Office XP I think) has a very easy red eye removal tool. In photoshop, you have to be a little more artistic about red eye or "robot eye/white eye" removal. Don't know if there's any freeware out there that's easier, but the MS editor is pretty good. Red eye disappears with a few clicks.

The "My Pictures" program has the tools on my computer to add background light, flash feature, and red eye removal.

I think you'd be better off with one of the above suggestions or something similar. Photoshop will certainly do the job but it is a high end piece of software with a price tag to match. If you only use it from time to time I don't think it would be worth the price or time it will take to learn how to use it correctly.

The newest version of PhotoShop is “CS2” or PhotoShop CS2. It’s 649.00 us from Adobe. CS2 basically has two new features. A RAW file format converter and Pic Bridge. Unless you’re willing to spend hours and hours and hours and hours and hours learning PhotoShop I would opt for an user-friendlier program.

Doug, I could not find the editor on my XP system. Do you guys have a recommendation from freeware that removes red/white eye? Thanks again

Adobe Photoshop Elements 4.0 (http://www.adobe.com/products/photoshopelwin/) is excellent editing software and has an amazingly accurate red-eye tool. That software is $90 for the download from Adobe (500+ meg) or $100 for the retail box. It's a very substantial subset of Adobe Photoshop, and at $90 represents an amazing bargain IMHO.

I think it must be part of "MS Office XP." Not part of the XP OS. I have it at work, but not at home.
