Using the Eye Brighten Tool

If you find your subject's eyes aren't quite popping the way you'd like, the Eye Brighten tool is a quick help. You’ll find Eye Brighten in the Touch Up section of the editor.

This tool is only available for BeFunky Plus subscribers. Upgrade your subscription today!


Step 1: Open your image into the Photo Editor, then head to the Touch Up section on your left sidebar.

Step 2: Choose the Eye Brighten effect under the Eyes heading. 

Step 3: Adjust the Brush Size and Brush Hardness by dragging the sliders or inputting the percentage you'd like. Brush Size determines the surface area of your tool, while Brush Hardness determines how soft the outlines of your edits will be. A lower hardness level will provide a more feathered appearance. 

Step 4: Paint over the whites of the eye to see the brightening effect on your subject.

Pro Tip: Use quick and short brush strokes to paint over the whites of the eyes.  The longer you apply the tool and paint more layers, the whites of the eyes may look unnaturally white. 

Step 5: When you are done, select the Apply button.

Step 6: Continue adding to and editing your creation. If you're done, be sure to save your project!
