Widen the Eyes

Summary:
In this tutorial, we’ll use Photoshop to widen the eyes so that they look awake and alert. It’s great for giving a slight Anime effect to a person’s photo. You can also use it subtely to open eyes that are open already, but just a little bit more.

Step-By-Step Instructions:

1. Open in Photoshop the photograph of the eyes that you want to widen.

4. Using the brush, click and push the eye brows so that they appear to neither go up, nor down, but straight across.
5. Now zoom into the eyes, click and push the top lids of the eyes up a little.
6. Then push the eye brows up a little also.
