Step 1: Open the photo and zoom in on the glare
Open your photo in the app.
Now zoom in to the glare to see it clearly.
Step 2: Use the Healing Tool to remove the glare
Tap on Tools > Healing.
Now start dragging your finger on the reflection to remove the reflection from the glasses in a photo.
See the below GIF.
Do it more and more.
Step 3: Remove the glare on the other glass also
Similarly, remove the glare on the other glass also.
Step 4: Tune the glasses to make them look natural
Okay, so we’ve removed the glare now but the glasses aren’t looking 100% natural.
We’re going to change some basic settings like brightness, contrast, etc. to make it look natural.
Go to Tools > Tune image.
Change the setting to this. This one works for me. You can copy these or you may need to use a different setting.
- Brightness: +5
- Contrast: +50
- Saturation: +2
- Ambiance: +2
- Highlights: -13
- Shadows: -27
This is how the photo looks now.
Ignore all other parts except the glasses. See how sharp the glasses look now.
Step 5: Remove the tuning from all parts but the glasses
Tap on the Layers icon.
Then tap on View Edits.
Then tap on this icon.
Start sliding your finger on the glasses. This will temporarily paint the glass red.
See this GIF.
In the same way, do it for the other one also.
Click on this tick after that.
If you want, you can apply some filters to the photo.
