That cat has debbil eyes

Okay guys, riddle me this. Why is there no red-eye fixer upper in Photoshop? What, is that too bourgeois? Too pedestrian? What? I mean this is a photo editing program! Come on! There's a red-eye fixer upper in Adobe PhotoDeluxe, and while it doesn't work all the time, it works sometimes! So what is it? I'm convinced that there's some good, real reason for this glaring omission that I don't understand because I'm no artiste. Either that or there IS a red eye fixer, and I just don't know where it is.

Barring that, what's your favorite technique for getting rid of red eye? Or are you guys going to force me to install APD just for that stupid tool?

I like to go in there, create a new layer, set the blend mode to "darken" or something similar, then use a black airbrush at about 11% pressure over the eyes until it turns out about right. This works better for people with brown eyes than blue, but what can you do?

I like to go in there, create a new layer, and set the blend mode to "Dokken."

I like to yell at the monitor until the red eye disappears or I pass out.

Yay, I get to use my wealth of photo knowledge.
Red is the oposite of Cyan. So if you select the red pupils, and then turn up the cyan, it pretty much takes care of business, you will need to darken it a little too, but not too much.

Also, if there are large white reflections in the pupils, like from lights, you should make sure not to include them in the selection. You probably didnt need to be told that though.
