Quick Tip: How to Remove Reflections in Eyeglasses with Photoshop



When capturing a portrait, eyeglasses can be a really reflective pain. Fortunately, photographer and educator Scott Kelby put together a quick tutorial that’ll show you two ways to fix this issue in Photoshop.

Kelby walks you through two different ways to attack this problem. The first is to use the Dehaze tool at +100 in Camera RAW and paint in a selective adjustment over your subject’s glasses. This kind-of-sort-of works, but it’s not ideal.

That’s where version two comes in. If you realize at the time of the shoot that you’re going to have an issue with reflections, you can take one picture with and another without glasses, and then composite the two together.

Watch Kelby perform both adjustments in the quick video below:
