To use the tool, select an area containing the eye with the
rectangular selection tool, and then select "Red Eye Remover" under
Filters/Misc. You can choose the sensitivity of the tool with the
dialog that appears , with higher meaning more areas are selected
as red-eye areas. -255 means no change, +255 means the entire
selected area will be affected. The default, 0, normally works
very well, removing red-eye while skin hair and other things you
might select by accident. To speed the process up, you can use
"Auto Red Eye Remover" under Filters/Misc instead, which simply
applies the remover with the default sensitivity.
