    "The problem is specific but the answer is not. The answer is just a photo editor. I could not understand why it is recommended especially for removing red eyes. I do not know any other editor who does the job very well though."

    "I took some great shots of my kids on our recent lake vacation, but when I looked at them on the computer at home, there were quite a few with red eye problems. I decided to try photoshop cc from the adobe website to see if the software could fix this. There's a bit of a learning curve, but I was able to get everything looking good! I like that it's a subscription price now too, so that it can be a little more affordable."

    "Painter is a long standing Corel product with new adaptions. This includes gradient express paint and texture tools. Remove red eye is a basic function. At $359 this seems like overkill for the solution. A free product is Fotor Photo Editor. "

    "I'm a novice photographer and wanted to remove red eyes in a photo. I tried Snapseed, a photo-editing app. It's free, which is nice, but it doesn't work very well. It crashes frequently on my phone. It's not intuitive, either. Removing the red eyes in my photo didn't work very well and didn't remove the red completely. I was very disappointed. I suggest trying another app."

    "What a brilliant idea for an app. This lets you take out all the things in your photo that you didn't mean to be in your photo, which for me can be about half the picture sometimes. The editor on my phone is terrible, so being able to move them over into this app and work on them is so handy and useful. You really need this if your as clumsy as I am and can't frame your pictures. TouchRetouch not only does regular photos, it can handle 360d photos too. The tutorials are really easy to follow and you can get some really good results after just a few times working with it. "

    "I was searching for resources for removing red eyes in a photo that I was going to put in my scrap book. I thought I would give Gimp a try since it is a free image editing software that many people seem to like. It did not work for me. The main problem I encountered was the interface. It is not intuitive at all. I ended up uninstalling this software and using something else."

    "Krita is a professional painting software but I could not directly related it to the removing red eyes in a photo. I was expecting a direct, specific solution rather than a general software like Krita. If you are looking a whole package, Krita is one of the best though."

    "Bonfire has the ability to remove red eye, but its not very intuitive. There are hundreds of photo editing apps and programs out there, Bonfire falls short to most of them. IF you want a quick fix, Bonfire may work, but I would invest or look elsewhere for a better photo editing program."
