Galaxy Camera: Why do the subject’s eyes appear red in some photos captured?

Last Update Date : Apr 25. 2018

Red Eye

Red eye in your photos is caused when the flash is reflected by the eye. In certain modes like, such as Expert Mode or Beauty face, you can enable the Red-eye option. To access the Red-eye setting, open the camera application and touch 1 > Flash 1 and select from:

    • Red-eye: The camera will use a series of short low-powered flashes before capturing the photo. This will trigger the pupil to contract and thereby reducing the amount of flash reflected in the eye.

    • Red-eye fix: After the photo is capture, the camera will automatically locate the red-eye in the subject(s) and attempt to correct them.

If you capture a photo with red eye, you can remove the red eye using Photo Wizard. Open the application and select the photo you want to remove red eye from. Touch Portrait > Red eye removal. The message Tap to remove red eye is shown on the screen. Touch the subject's eyes individually to remove the red eye. Touch Done to save the changes.
