how to open closed eye(s) in PS 2024?
 
I googled & saw reference to "eye tool" in Elements
but only "red eye tool" in Photoshop
for blinked eyes, does one need to clone
"perfect fit" other set of eyes...?
what if no believable other set available...?
advice appreciated, thanks in advance

I don't know of any tool to do it.  I have cloned open eyes from a different (and very similar frame) over to the same person.   I have only done this on a group photo where everyone looks great but the one person with closed eyes.   If that person hasn't moved much or not at all, in another photo, it is pretty easy to do.   Maybe A.I. has come out with some sort of tool.

I was once asked to provide an eye on a damaged photo, but that was easy-ish, copy and mirror with a bit of cloning did the trick.  Happy customer.

AI generative fill?

Maybe - possibly? But that will  probably lead back to Jeff's GPU issues - see various threads.

watched one Youtube tutorial, can't find it again;
tutor used Lasso Tool around closed eye, then in
an empty box-field typed "open eye" & selected
best of 3 results; can I do same with Quick Select Tool?

That sounds like AI Generative fill was being used. That needs a pretty recent version of PS.

Try some of the other videos. Quick select tool will be used probably more often than Lasso Tool.

 

They will all (well most will) explain the way it works step by step:

Usually:  select > right click> Generative Fill. And in the case of eyes, maybe say blue eyes or brown eyes. If there's another eye next to it, probably no text will work as well. Click Genarate

In the minibar that appears somewhere on your screen there will be: < 1/3 > and the arrows will let you cycle between the 3 solutions the filter has thought up for you. If you don't like any, just click generate in that minibar again.

 

And yes it's all done using Generative Fill, because there's no real eye in the image to begin with, so you or the program will have to think some eye up. Then it's either your drawing skills or that new fad AI that will do it for you in 3 seconds.

Think of it as the healing brush on steroids.

 

Generative Fill appeared a bit more than half a year ago for most of us in Photoshop. But some people had been using it before that. However initially it could only let stuff disappear. And that is what I use it for. But I still use content aware fill as well. Even the old method, which I sometimes prefer over the newer method with the masking and the layer.

Mind you, the Generative Fill tool will do the job with a low-quality, randomly selected eye from a database. And for this particular task, I find the end result quite creepy.
