Hi,

Most digital cameras now come with a built in red-eye reduction flash \015\012mode to eliminate or reduce red-eye. If you don't have red-eye \015\012reduction you could download a image editor such as Picasa (it's free!!)\015\012 which also removes red-eye.\015\012\011\011

Red-eye is caused by two things: having a light source that illuminates\015\012 the retina in a way that the camera can see, meaning it is close \015\012angularly to the camera lens, and having nice wide open irises to make \015\012this very noticeable. There are four ways to get rid of it while you \015\012are taking the picture: \015\012

\015\012Use a "red-eye reduction" mode on the camera, which is simply a series \015\012of pre-flashes to have the subject's irises close. \015\012
\015\012Move the light source the illuminates the subject far enough away from \015\012the lens so that the illuminated part of the retina can't be seen by the\015\012 lens.That can mean buying a different flash besides the built in one, \015\012or figuring out how to bounce the light from the flash off a surface \015\012that is far enough away to do this. \015\012

\015\012Spread out the effective light source surface area - there are cheap \015\012little add ons that can do this for you, or use a tissue or other \015\012translucent, neutrally colored material in front of the flash. \015\012\015\012\015\012\015\012
\015\012Don't use the flash.\015\012

\015\012The last way is to get rid of it on your computer using any one of \015\012several software packages that usually include a red-eye removal tool. \015\012


Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.
