How to Change Eye Color in Photoshop

In this post, I will show you how to change eye color in Photoshop using a Hue/Saturation adjustment layer. I’m going to do some basic color changes in Photoshop and this method won’t just look good, it’s also efficient and completely non-destructive. Ok, enough horn tooting, lets get started.

The first step is to open the image in Photoshop. If you want to use the same photo, here’s the link: https://unsplash.com/photos/UbJMy92p8wk

At the bottom of the layer’s panel, click on the adjustment icon and add a Hue/Saturation adjustment.

If you drag the hue and saturation slider, it changes the colour of the entire image. We can also see we have a layer mask with our adjustment layer in the layer’s panel which is white at the moment showing the changes that we have made.

And if we go to Image → Adjustments → Invert it will become black and effectively hide that effect.

Remember: In layer masks, black removes from the mask and the white adds back in.

So with white as foreground colour, we will select the brush tool. I’m going to use a soft round pressure opacity brush as it helps to blend the edges much more seamlessly.

And now just gently brush over the iris.

AND VOILA!!!

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR READING THE POST. REMEMBER THE KEY THING HERE IS TO MAKE SELECTION WHERE THE EYE IS AND PLAY WITH HUE/SATURATION UNTIL YOU GET THE DESIRED LOOK.
