GIMP, or GNU Image Manipulation Program, is a free photo editing tool that comes with the red-eye removal software.
If you are familiar with Photoshop, then you can easily use GIMP’s sophisticated editing tools to create stunning and visually appealing photos in your library.
However, it requires some extra skills or time to understand and use it, so it’s not as simple as most free photo editors.
While GIMP doesn’t have a magic red-eye removal button, it has tools that you can use to achieve the desired effect.
Using the red-eye removal filter, you can remove red eyes from an image, but with GIMP, you must do a selection (lasso or elliptical) of the boundary of the iris of the eye or eyes having a red-eye pupil.
Once you select the area, apply the filter by activating it in the image window menu under Filters>Enhance>Red Eye Removal.
The Preview window lets you see the modifications in real-time and you can choose the good value of threshold compared with what is displayed, then validate it.
As you move the cursor of threshold, the red color intensity will vary.
GIMP not only lets you remove red-eye errors, but you can also add layers, masks, curves, and levels, create your own custom brushes, apply perspective, and much more using its smart selection tools.
Other salient features include retouching tools, and graphic design elements you can use to create icons, and art for other uses.
