Red Eye Reduction

written on Friday, September 26, 2008

A feature I wanted to add for a long time to Gwenview has just landed in SVN: red eye reduction.

It's (hopefully) simple to use. I made a screencast to demonstrate it:

The UI is quite inspired from iPhoto, I reused the widget style you can find in the fullscreen bar.

The current algorithm is a modified version of a plugin. As you can see in the screencast, it does not try to be smart: you need to point the eyes yourself. Nevertheless, it does a good job at fixing the pupil color while keeping the iris untouched.
