Does anyone know how to fix the "red eye" that occurs when you take pix of your dogs? The normal red eye correction (at least in iphoto) doesn't work on shots of Bailey, and I'd love to know to fix them! Thanks!

That looks great! I have Photoshop so maybe I can figure it out in there?!?

I always use either Photoshop or Photoshop Elements. I don't usually get red eye, but Tucker's eyes tend to glow in some pics.

Right, it's definitely a orange/yellow glow, which is why the normal red eye corrector doesn't work I suppose! What do you do in Photoshop to fix it?

I use the paint tool set to one pixel, and draw where it should be black (but I don't use jet black, I use the dropper to select a color from a dark part of the photo I am working with). Then I use the blur/soften tool on one or two pixels. Then I gamma correct the whole thing darker to make it blend even better. I had to do the background on this one because in order to rotate it to the correct angle, it cut off so much that I couldn't crop it without cutting part of the dog off- so I just blacked out the background.

I use Photoshop. I clone a dark color from somewhere in the picture, the use the circle pen tool the right size and "copy" the dark color on top of the glow. Then I clone a white or light color spot in the picture to make the white spot on each each eye, using a tiny circle.

I'm using photoshop as well to correct doggy red eyes..
1. make a selection of the eye
2. feather 2-3 pixels
3. copy and paste so the selection pasted to a new layer (I usually work in layers so I can just delete a layer when I get screwed up)
4. desaturate the new layer.. then press (ctrl?) and click the eye part to make the selection from that eye part
5. create a new later.. fill jet black to the new layer with selection from the eye
6. change the blending of the new black layer to overlay and play around with opacity.
I don't have photoshop installed in my laptop, so I may have missed some steps or even put unnecessary steps in above description. It's been a while since I corrected doggy red eyes too, so the description above is just something that comes up on top of my head.. I will post again on monday when I'm at work. Who knows I can find an easier steps too :)
