I know that you don’t like dark circles and you’re using all kinds of creams and home remedies to remove them. You already have reduced by a small percentage but they’re still visible. Before posting a photo. you do all kinds of things to reduce them. But, if you want to remove them completely, you’ve come to the right place. I am going to show you how to remove dark circles in Photoshop.

This is a fairly simple tutorial. I am going to use the Clone Stamp Tool to remove them. I’ll also add a bonus step where I’ll show you how to reduce them by 80% (or any other percentage).

Before we begin, I want to show you the before and after photo.

In the option panel, change the blend mode to lighten and turn off the Align.

Lighten blend mode compares each pixel of the current layer and the layer below it, and shows the pixels that are brighter. You’ll understand later in this tutorial.

Clone Stamp Tool is used to copy pixels from one part of the image and paste them on another part. To use the Clone Stamp Tool, you first need to define the source pixels. This will be pixels are going to be copied. You can do them by holding down the Opt / Alt key.

Select the cheek as the source pixels.
