p.s. again. i just sent a pic of the kitty to my sister and asked her if there was anything that seemed strange about it. she said the kitty looked really cute and asked what i had done. i showed her a pic of before and after and she couldn't believe it.

This software is the result of product differentiation.
It is a marketing driven software effort.
You market this software to a multitude of rich pet owners to whom 40 US dollars is small change.
Nothing wrong with that. It is just business.
You only need to correct for (red, blue, green, yellow, white) shining eyes in photos if you use flash frontal dead on to the face of the subject; and only if the flash tube is too close to the axis of your camera lens.
The way to prevent this problem in the first place, is not to use flash in photos.
Modern digital cameras have low-light capability. i.e. cameras have high ISO feature.
Most of the time you do not need flash to take the photo.

One last point, please don't use powerful flash very close to the eyes of animals that have high sensitivity eyes (i.e. they can see in the dark) because you can injure or harm their eyesight. That's cruelty to animals.

actually i LIKE this program! i was 'afraid to try' because of people not being happy, but i plunged ahead. to begin with, VERY easy to install and register. i really didn't have to do anything except install it to register it. that's pretty amazing.

as it installed it recognized that i have photoshop installed and asked if it should install as a plug in to photoshop. i said yes. i wondered if i would be able to use it as a stand alone. yes.

when i first opened it it had a demo. a very very nice demo, easy to understand.

most of my kitty pictures have good eyes, however i had one picture that had 'bad eyes'. i couldn't fix it in photoshop. i thought, okay, i will try with this program.

i watched the demo then went to my kitty picture. i followed along, not remembering certain things, like how to change the size of the brush. and i couldn't get 'gleam' to work, so i thought, i need the demo again. sure enough, boom, i hadn't remembered some of the instructions, very easy once i saw them again.

my only complaint with this part was, that i had to close the program in order to watch the demo video again. it would be nice to have both, to work side by side.

anyway, this is a fun keeper!!

p.s. even though my first test was not completed and was not perfect because i had to close that first test before i finished it in order to look at the demo again, if someone looked at the picture, they wouldn't say 'oh what ghastly eyes', they simply wouldn't notice, because this program had filled in the eye enough already to look more real than the blown out eye.

p.s. again. i am really really excited about this program, now that i've played with it a little more. for those into this kind of thing, you would be missing out if you didn't download this program.

btw, you are actually creating the whole eye. it is funny...if you wanted to make some silly pictures, you could make your animal cross-eyed etc. i had a very silly looking kitty here. :)

Just a quick note about pet eyes. If they turn out to have headlights, or devil eyes. You have two options.

1) Celebrate the fact that you now have an awesome meme template. I await your creations, with the words... "Seal team SIX issues night vision to their pets now"... or whatever.

2) Learn to take better photos.

Those that moan about those moaning about the price have no leg to stand on, yes, its FREE today, but tomorrow it will not bet. The authors of programs want suggestions, well, most have been about the ridiculous normal asking price for this program.

Normally, I'd agree with you, its bad manners when its free here today, BUT not in this instance. We would be neglected our duties as software testers (and that is why we get these offers) if we did not comment on the price IN THIS CASE! Its so over the top, none of us could forgive it or ignore it.

Have a nice day.

Actually, it seems pretty terrific on first try.
Easy install on Windows 8.1 64 bit.

What is really great is the tutorial.
It was clear, simple, and made all the difference.
I don't know if I would've figured out the subtleties without it.

I've got tons of cat pictures that are adorable - except for the eyes being blown out.
I know what I'm doing this weekend.
Then my cats & I will try to break the internet. (laughs evilly)

(I never would've paid $40 for it, though)

Very nice - installed on Win8.1 - no problem - tested on a few pics of my animals (mostly good results, not quite 100% but close enough for the family album). As others have said (pretty rudely I might add) $45 (just) for this purpose, would be way out of my price range (but, that's my price range). The feature I love most is - tada - the 'pull-down' WORD menu toolbar - Thank yous all around for today's program. Another small tweak I night look at is the ability to fluidly pick what you want to 'fix' - when I tried to move the cursor (or the area selected by the program) it would jump, as if it were attached to 'grid lines'. Oh well, just a suggestion. Thanks again.

Hey - this is a nice piece of software The list price is a bit high but this has a lot of tools for working with different types of animals and the red eye that happens when you use a flash. It is a one horse application and yes, you could probably do the same thing in Photoshop, but this little prog makes it easy.5 thumbs up because it does what it says with excellence
NOT uninstalled

Sad to see so many nasty comments. I have many friends who have pets, and who are not photo imaging people. Many of them make incredible weavings, paintings or are exceptional writers, so I don't feel bad for them! Having tried this giveaway, I think that a lot of them could use it, and would take the time to "tweak" their photos, so I am going to recommend it to them. The interface is very nice, IMO.

The price of this software is irrelevant, when you can obtain it FREE, don't you think, and pardon me for saying, but if you disagree that the price is irrelevant when you can obtain it FREE, then I conclude that you do not THINK. Thanks to GOTD and the software provider for this OPPORTUNITY. P.S. I have 9 cats, all rescued from the streets of Panama, all neutered, all loving. I have a low income, but how I spend my money is my choice. Since there is no way to discern which is which, I don't begrudge those who get food stamps, because some of those people really need them to tide them over until they figure out how to use their THOUGHTS to create something better in their lives. As for the others, "what goes around, comes around." Thanks again GOTD, Giovanni, Karl, and all the others who contribute to this site!

Just in the nick of time! I downloaded some pictures of my puppy from my cell phone yesterday, and she had glaring green headlight eyes. Well, the results with this software were way less than satisfactory. I am fairly experienced with this kind of software, but pet eyes always eluded me. This one did NOT even come close to fixing the problem. It left green smudges around a hollow black circle. Even adding the manual "gleam" did not make them look any more than dead. The green halo effect around the eyes remained also. This program was useless on my photo. Removed with Revo Uninstaller Pro. Definitely a waste of time downloading.

Just downloaded some pictures of my puppy yesterday, and saw these glaring green headlights. This program sounded just like just what I needed. Nope, it left a black spot, the hazy glare around the spot remained. It looked dead and strange. I have this same problem even with Photoshop, which I am very good with...(except for pet eyes). This program just did not work on my photo. Uninstalled with Revo uninstaller Pro.

Hi, in future, if You know how - get a picture of Your puppy with 'good eye', cut that eye out (sounds awful:), make it into transparent png and keep it as 'tube' (in Corel PSP), or 'stamp' elsewhere, and try to 'plant it' later on top of 'bad eye' (previously adding layer to picture You're operating on, for all necessary adjustments and 'fitting'). Sounds fiddly, I know, but with practice - results are far better than using Software such as today's Giveaway! I've done it many, many times and have quite a collection of eyes, noses, ears, chins, etc..:) Good luck!

Hi, Software that deals with pet's red eye correction and extends this make-up to fixing 'fully light-struck eyes' (thus rebuilding the whole eye)..

My advice is this - If you need this Software, say you want to make perfect Portrait of Cat/Dog/Other, and picture you took, or someone handed to you is seriously spoiled - Get this Program today. I emphasize: TODAY, when it's FREE, and for God's sake never ever be even tempted to BUY this Program for it's asking price!!.

That's how I entertained this Giveaway and without shame took advantage of it. A friendly word to Developer: Try to Create a perfect (automatic!) Fix for pets' eyes, make it as BULK application, slash the price of such Software to 1/3 or less, and that'll at least be fair! (if you get my drift..) Thanks GOTD and Tint Guide for this free Gift!

I am a pet owner! This will be very useful as I have used pet eye pilot in the past but only had a trial version. It worked very well. Automatic red eye removal doesn't work as dogs and cats don't have red eyes - they are green or yellow. This is great for an amateur like me :-) I can't afford to buy it so thanks for the share GAOTD

I don't have my pet cat any more, so I don't have any need for this utility.

But I thought I'd comment about the comments about the price. When you are evaluating software prices, you need to consider their TRUE prices, and using the US$ as a measurement is problematic. Using the price of gold on the London Market as a standard, the US$ has lost 76% of its value in the past dozen or so years. So today's $45 is the same as a $10.80 ticket price back in the salad days of Windows XP (IIRC, "Madden 2004" originally cost $44.98)

So why is everyone complaining so bitterly about the price?

Currency calculations have nothing to do with anything -- even if the Russian economy is presently hurting and the rouble suffering due to political circumstances far beyond this particular developer's control. Nobody needs to go back 10 years to do any kind of math; 5 days is enough to be reacquainted with PT Photo Editor 2.1.2, priced at $30 for a hugely impressive range of abilities and functions compared to the 50% increase on that price sought by today's developer for a single solitary app. If Tint Guide is to continue on with its policy of stripping out image editing programs for the purposes of flogging 'em off bit by bit, it needs to get its head around the fact that computer users aren't stupid -- and to stop treating them as if they are. No-one in their right mind would pay $45 for this software or run the risk of ever having to confront that $45 as a re-install charge. One-trick ponies at $9.99 might just about be saleable; anything more than that, forget it.

Quit whining and complaining about complainers.

Actually they are not complainers, at all.

They are just very smart people, who are simply trying to help the developer by suggesting that he set a more reasonable price for the product in order for him to make some money on it. That's it, that's all.

Surely if you're going to attempt this type of analysis you have to do it with something much more fundamental than the price of gold.
The price of sustenance would be much more realistic but equally pointless!

Think what that can buy in software. Xara 9 on Amazon costs the same.
BTW there is usually someone who posts, "This is free, why are you complaining" messages. And the answer is always going to be the same. It's free to us, today, but we're reviewing it as it is intended to be. And $45 (36 Euro) for a one trick pony is madness.

Notice that Brightness Guide is available today at a reduced and reasonable price. This is a generally useful photo utility. Check it out - very easy to use and brightens up shadowy dark areas in most pictures, including shadowy faces. If you take a good number of pictures this utility at $9 is worth a look.

this is a very useful piece of software. why? because i very often felt that the "normal" prices of the gotd programs are too high. now i see that they were really moderate and sensible. and why to buy a single-purpose sw wich can do just what an average editor does (if we are speaking about realistic pictures)? i have no idea... i see no reason even to install it for free, as we are speaking about gotd.
who is at least nearly-to-average photographer, doesnt use flash (and if makes shots in the dark, understands, that shining eyes are ok). and who is at least nearly-to-average photographer, doesncomputer user, doesnt have problem to reduce shining eyes in any multipurpose editor...

Seriously, this is a joke right? $45 *just* to remove red eye and the like from your pet photos, can even be used on humans.

My digital cameras, I have two, both came with software to do all the things possible with the photos I take, even removing red eyes, and amazingly, even on pet photos.

I have no idea why anyone would spend $45 to buy this one shot wonder, maybe, if it did other things like resize photos, it *could* possibly be worth it to someone... I say this NOT to be unkind, but reality must prevail here.

My whole post is on two points, one, why would I want to buy this when it came free with both my cameras, and the cost, maybe if it was $5 or $9.99 ... maybe... but come on ... $45???? Seriously? Someone is deluded.

Had this program had many more features, then MAYBE.... maybe.... but... no.

Thanks for the offer, you know, FREE is still free, but after the offer is over, the company responsible will be deluded into thinking people will actually pay that much for this... and THAT is why my post states what it does.

No one in their right mind, unless they are a brain dead millionaire pet lover would EVER consider buying this, and unless one or two like that exist, then the authors will probably starve over the next year.

Why would we be interested in your opinion on price, Henk. Are you offering a particular insight from your experience as a winner of the Nobel Prize for Economics?
We'd certainly like to hear what you think of the software, and its performance.
Why the lambasting of publishers' prices? The market determines price. Is the maximum price of you work limited by fiat? Fortunately, we're free to charge whatever price we choose; results follow accordingly. That's a freedom we enjoy.

Anything that makes domestic cats look cuddly and must have accessories is a dangerous concept. In the UK domestic cats kill 60 million song birds every single year and countless other small creatures that do no one any harm. I will pass on this occasion.

You do know Leslie that the black plauge spread throughout europe in the middle ages in some part due to the fear and hatred of cats. No cats to kill the rats, and the fleas on the rats survived to wipe out a huge population of humans. Every living thing has it's place in this world. Even us sometimes ignorant humans.

Installed and registered without problems, opened up to an interface typical of this company.
Downloaded some redeye images using Google of both dogs and people, and tested the program.

Found it easy to remove redeye from both very effectively but one serious bug I found was that the colour picker was totally unpredictable.

Why they call it a pet redeye removal is beyond me as it is very effective in removing it on images of people.

It does what it what it claims but at an incomprehensible price.

A preposterously-priced single-purpose app that does nothing that decent freeware like paintnet, Imagina, GIMP, Photoscape, Lightbox, PhotoFiltre, Pxlr Desktop, and even IrfanView cannot do within their program. The ostensible $45 price tag is an insult to the intelligence of every computer user -- and especially to GOTDers who earlier this week were given the opportunity to download and keep the $30 PT Photo Editor 2.1.2, image management software which truly exposes how glib this Russian developer has become -- become, because under a former name, it produced reasonably good programs whereas today, it seems to specialise in de-constructing various programs, isolating fragments of them, and then attempting to flog 'em off as single-purpose apps decorated with ludicrous prices intended to make people think they must be good because they cost so much. Yeah. Right. Quite why Tint Guide isn't asking $10,500 for this glorified red-eye remover, I've no idea, but perhaps it'll fare better with, let's say, an overhead power-line removal app, price tag, $27,850. Thanks GOTD but absolutely no thanks.

Reply   |   Comment by MikeR  –  9 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+68)

I usually agree with you MikeR, but this isn't a red eye remover.
Pet retinas have a completely different colour, more yellow, and until recently it's been virtually impossible to remove the refection successfully. Photoshop Elements 12 has the feature, but that costs a lot more than USD45.
And why the lambasting of publishers' prices? The market determines price. Fortunately, we're free to charge whatever price we choose; results follow accordingly. That's our freedom.

Peter makes a good point. Demand has the market, and it's really useful for pet lovers.

When I get in product page, I was scared by the cats and dogs...really!

hmm, perhaps it's a scarce market in this field. However, this program is pricey, I think.

Thanks for GAOTD and Tint Guide but no need to install since I don't have a pet. :(

P.S. I like your cat, Karl!

Installed and (self-)registered without problems on a Win 8.1.3 Pro 64 bit system.

A Russian company without name and address. I have to admit, that I awaited such a tool. After filling the market with beauty for woman and men, the market for pets seems to be even bigger.

After installation a panel with demonstrations starts. You have to view the "shining pupil" before you start, otherwise you are lost to remove the flash light in the eyes of your cat or dog. It basically adds a "cats pupil" to the presets. This is the only "animal" related part of this software. You can change the "cats pupil", so that it fits also in the eye of your beloved snake...

It is not as easy to "reconstruct" an eye with complex color, think of a tiger's eye. With some experience you'll get quite good results. The better way is not to direct the flash directly in an open eye.

Does what it claims. In my short test I could not achieve the result, I wanted...

Uninstalled via reboot, my pets don't have red eyes. Really.
My cats:


It is not only, that I want to show you my cats (of course I'm proud!... it should show, that it is nearly impossible to reconstruct such eyes.

Have a nice weekend!

Well now I've seen it all. You can see why the US spends $40 Billion/year on their pets. And I suppose the people who are responsible for most of this expenditure are the ones who begrudge PEOPLE getting food stamps. I don't know the cost of food stamps but at a guess it's less than $40Bill!

Hi all who vote this short comment from Studiopro,

sometimes we can read comments like this and some of us dislike if a commentator is too lazy to test the software by itself and otherside is too honest by writing what many of us are thinking.

So please all be fair-minded, test every giveaway AND/or wait what Karl (my hight regards to him and his daily work!!!) discovers.

I read this commend only as to pay big homage to Karl. From this view I can vote up this comment.
