Do you mean fix this one image, or in the future?.

This one image is easily fixable, because the spots where the reflection is a blank spot, no detail behind it to be concerned with. Just use an editors clone tool (rubber stamp in Photoshop) to copy nearby colors over it, to hide it. This one is easy as pie..

The "easy" editors for dummies probably dont have the clone tool, but any halfway serious edtor will have it..

In the future, either raise the light or tilt the head a bit lower. If it is a studio light with a modeling light, there is no reason you cannot see this when standing with head near the camera, and you know to shift things a bit...

Are you talking about the opitcal illusion on the man's right side of the head? I think the clone tool will work in that situation,also...

Smerk, You might try MS Paint. If you are using Windows XP it is included. Here is a quickie repair, took about six minutes, with more time and greater care it could be better..

I have PS7 and am pretty good with it. You asked if this "repair" was for this image or for future. The answer is both. How do I correct the lens issue in post?.

Thanks!Smerk..

Here is a quick 5 minute job:.

I was going fast, was not trying to be fastidious at all. My right side area needs to be lightened slightly..

Just use the rubber stamp (clone tool) to paint over it with nearby colors.I used the tool at 6px diameter, and I worked on the image viewed at 300% size..

Just click a nearby color with the Alt key, and then paint over what you want to hide. This one is easy, because it is all "blank space" without detail to be preserved.Clone tool is possibly one of the very most important tools to learn...

Wow. Thanks! I am aware of the clone tool but I honestly thought that would be too tough of a job for it. I guess I was wrong!.

Only way to fix that before you take the pic is to have the subject remove his/her glasses. Or change the angle of the shot.bobapunk..

Seeing it in the viewfinder during the shoot is easy.Remembering to look is the hard part.  ..

Actually, it is quite simple. View an enlarged image, to see it better. Make the tool diameter small enough to be usable, and normally a fuzzy one not to leave sharp edges (which may require double hits sometimes)..

At PS menu Edit - Preferences - Display and Cursors, do change Standard cursor to be either Precise or Brush Tip, so you can see what you are doing..

Get close enough to the target area to choose a color at the selection point (the Alt key click). Very near, next to it probably, think about the color, the shadows and highlights. You repeat this selection many times, necessary every few clicks. Farther away on a face will likely be too dark or too light, but you see this. Pay attention to the selection point color (wherever it moves to). You can either click dots or drag lines to repaint, but keep in mind where your selection point is going too..

The selection point is a distance and an angle, from the first target click, and it maintains that same distance and angle as you click around. You have to watch where the selection point is as you mark target, else you create some mistakes. It shows you this. You will have to reselect a selection point very often, as needed. Undo and deleting history is easy to backup, and you will use that a lot too. Read the help first..

You always keep in mind where your target point AND your selection point will be. The initial angle and distance is maintained as you move around..

You will make mistakes early, and then get the hang of it quickly. Just do whatever it takes. Undo whatever it takes too..

Getting tricky (and I did not), but note that to repaint the right side, the selection point could have been from other eye on other side, to copy some of the wrinkles into there. Probably from below the other eye so the wrinkle lines run the right direction. May be too dark, but it can then be touched up with same tool..

It is also easy to paint over deeper wrinkles or any flaws, etc..

It is easy. The hard part is if you have to redraw an ear or an eyeball.   I only spent a couple of minutes here, because it was all blank area, no detail. My job was hurried and not great, and if it had been my own image, I would have spent a couple more minutes...
