    Suggestions for post-production on eye glasses?

    My son has glasses and he doesn't really get flash or anything shining in them, but they reflect the surrounding/scenery often instead of letting me see into his eyes.

    Any suggestions?

    1. Try to seat your son at an angle away from the light source.
    2. Try a circular polarizing filter.

    There's no such thing as seating an 8 year old boy anywhere for long enough to take a pic - at least one that's "natural" and not "posed - cheesy-grin, you can tell the 8 year old is hating this"!
    I had a circular polarizing filter today and it was better, but I was hoping to be able to post-production it to be even better.

    I did a search online for "remove glasses reflection in photoshop".
    One of the hits was this:

    Nice discussion there.
    My favorite quote from there:

    Has the "client" asked for the glare to removed? I think any photoshopping would either be too labor intensive, or would result in a very unnatural result. I'd leave as is, unless the client had raised objections.



    There are others, which could be closer to what you are looking for.

    I wear eyeglasses with plastic lenses (they are lighter and tougher), but another advantage is that they are less reflective than glass.

    I have Scott Kelby's "The Photoshop Elements book for digital photographers" and there are tutorials for everything from whitening teeth to slimming and trimming your model, a plastic surgeons tool kit if you will. The book has a section on fixing reflections in glasses, the one example utilizes the EDIT GUIDED tool in Elements 8.
