    Green eye

    sterickson
      I'm a first time user of Fireworks 8. I'm trying to retouch photos of my cat (which I had to put down two days ago), as his pupils are bright green in the photos.

      I've figured out how to use the color replacement portion of the red-eye tool, enough that I can tell i to change green to black. The problem is that the result is still too bright. I say black, but everything is converted to that same shade of black that the shade is of green. That makes sense to me, but how do I then gradually darken the result until it looks right?

          The redeye tutorial here, while not FW specific, offers some pretty good
          insight, and the technique can be adapted. Look for the first tutorial:
