How to change the eye color in Photoshop

One of Photoshop's most popular functions is to change the color of a person's eyes in a photo. Here is how you can do it yourself. The first step is to open the image you want to edit. Next, create a duplicate of the layer by right-clicking on the original layer and selecting Duplicate layer.

Use the Hue bar to find the eye color you like best. With this setting, you will modify the tonality of the entire photograph, but you do not have to worry about that. Just focus on eye color.
