Removing Dark Circles Under Eyes

Here’s a quick technique for removing or lessening dark circles under the eyes. It’s one of those things that happen to a lot of people. It could be you’ve been working late (or, even better, partying late), or were just up late. Regardless of where they came from, there is a quick way to remove these dark circles.

Step One:

Open the photo that has the dark circles you want to remove or lessen. Select the Clone Stamp tool in the Toolbox (or press the S key). Then, click on the brush thumbnail in the Options Bar to open the Brush Picker and choose a soft-edged brush that’s half as wide as the area you want to repair. Note: Press the letter Z to switch to the Zoom tool and zoom in if needed.
