Red-eye removal?

    Hi,
    I am removing red eye from some pics by desaturating the red with
    the Photoshop sponge tool [1]. After that the red has gone, but the
    pupil still has a bright white spot in the middle. What can be a
    convenient way to get rid of that too, and have a black pupil?

    I have tried by sampling the gray around and painting it on the
    bright spot, but the result looks "unnatural", like if there is an
    irregular black stain in place of the pupil.

    Thank you for any suggestion. Regards,
    Fanta

  2. You may want to take a close look at a number of portraits. I believe
    you will find that the pupil is seldom solid black.
