To remove red eyes from a photo in Android, you can use the following apps and methods.

Red Eye: This is the simplest one. It is a free app from Google Play that does nothing but fix red eyes in photos. To use the app, select the photo you want to fix, and the app automatically detects and removes red eyes from it.

Red-Eye Remover in iPhone

Red-eye in any photograph is an unfortunate phenomenon that everyone can agree looks unpleasant.

The built-in camera app in iPhone has made it very easy to get rid of, or prevent red-eye from happening with one simple tap on your screen.

Here's how to use the Red Eye Removal tool in your iPhone camera:

Choose 'flash' as the source of light.

In the flash selection menu, disable (or enable) the flash.

Choose 'capture'.

Here's what you should see next:

Tap on the red eye that you want to fix and then select 'fix' or 'retouch' on the bottom right corner of the screen.

Double-tap anywhere on the image to fix the entire set of eyes.

You can use 'Tap for Color' or 'Tap for Lightness' to use different modes depending on what works best for the image.

Though this is not the best way to remove red eye in your images, it's the fastest way to do it and works in most cases.
