How to eliminate the green/yellow eyes in photos?

Our Dobe's eyes are almost black. But in photos, it looks like he has been plugged in to a Christmas tree and his eyes look popping green or yellow lights!

Please, please, how can we reduce this in a photo, to make his eyes look like our wonderful NORMAL loving Doberman? In simple terms, please..

Thank you.

In my experience, weird eye colors have been due to the camera's built in flash... so I stopped using it

I will tell you that photobucket's "redeye fix" didn't work on a picture I took of Ilka.

Using a light source other than a flash mounted directly above the dog's face will fix it. Try using natural lighting if you don't have access to an external flash that can be bounced off a wall or the ceiling rather than shined directly at the dog.

Well, I'll have to figure out how to turn the flash off in the camera.

Once the damage has been done in a photo, is there a way to "fix it," with a simple way?

Don't use a flash. Make sure there is enough natural light, or light coming from room light fixtures that you don't need to use the camera flash.

Camera flashes - at least on most normal cameras that don't cost thousands of dollars - are way too bright and end up washing out the image, making it unnatural looking, and create the eye reflection like you mentioned.

I've tried taking out the flash shine in dog photos and haven't found anything that works that well without it looking un-natural in the other direction.

Most basic cameras (even iphones) will allow you to turn off the flash. Of course this means you need to have enough natural light to shoot in.

point and shoot cameras are notorious for this, it's the flash hitting the retinas and you are seeing the reflection, because dogs and cats (along with plenty of other animals) have special receptors that increase light so they can see better in the dark.

SImple solution on a point and shoot, turn off the flash. Usually looks like a lightning bolt symbol. For cameras with external flashes, you can simply point the flash up so it's not directly hitting the eye, much, much easier to do. Bear in mind that with a typical point and shoot, when you turn off the flash, you're going to have to be pretty steady or you will get a blurry shot. If you don't have a tripod, and your shots are blurry, try to prop the camera against something so it doesn't move. Depending on the lighting, when you turn the flash off, the camera will increase the exposure length, so that's why sometimes these shots will look out of focus.

Thank you everyone for the hints.

I really wanted a special photo for Christmas. Our Boy was all dazzling decked out in his best Christmas poses and he behaved so well, ears up perfect, on cue!

I tried to do it on my own with our digital camera. Everything was great, except for the eyes looking like yellow or green grenades.

It sure has given me a new found appreciation for professional, or even good amateur, photographers that are "dog people."
