Before I came up with this easier way, I first started getting annoyed that I was stubborn enough to not being able to follow other photo editing tutorials online on how to fix pet eye. After a moment of frustration finally I got the light bulb. It has been a week or so now and I better share my solution for those who might find the procedure easier this way too. Pardon me if my order of instructions are in a way harder to follow. Thanks!
Before and After
- Find an eye or a pupil to copy or cut with the right glint to match your pet's photo. From the photo above, that's when I got the light bulb to copy my own eye
- Get GIMP ready. You may download GIMP from http://www.gimp.org/ which is a free photo editing software. You may also use Photoshop if you have one installed since they are almost the same feature wise. Three initial windows will appear when you open GIMP - [Main], [Toolbox] and [Layers, Channels, Paths, Undo...]
- Choose the Ellipse Select Tool (2nd button, Toolbox window) to make a round selection on the chosen eye to copy or cut
- Create a new image, let's say 100x100 or the size depends on the eye you are fixing
- On the new image window, go to Layer>Transparency>Add Alpha Channel
- Go back to Layer>Transparency>Color to Alpha and click OK when you see the chessboard-like boxes
- Paste the copied or cut eye area on the new image which you added Alpha Channel to
- Go to Image>Scale image... to change the size of the copied eye and to match the size of the glowing pet eye you are fixing
- Save image (if you like) and copy
- Paste it to the glowing pet eye. You can move the floating image by using the Move Tool (12th button, Toolbox window)
- If the size does not fit the glowing pet eye, go back to number 8 to scale again
- On the [Layers, Channels, Paths, Undo...] window, change or move the Opacity to a preferred transparency so the pasted eye layer will not look too obvious that it was on top to a point where you think it already looks normal and matches the iris or the entire eye of your pet.
- To fix the obvious round edge of the pasted image, choose the Smudge Tool (2nd to the last button, Toolbox window) and gently go around to blend the round edge with the iris.
- Save and done.

It's a terrible thing to completely forget someone's birthday especially when it's the love of your life. I am a day late to remember greeting! No gift and not even a birthday cake with a candle for a birthday wish. I felt very ashamed but relieved I was not in too much trouble. It's never too late to make up so tonight, something inexpensive and home cooked worked its thoughtful magic. Me and my partner Remz were normally eating dinner already when the idea of having a cake and a birthday wish popped into our heads. So I placed a lit tea light candle on the top our sinangag (fried rice) and as a punishment, I was told to sing Happy Birthday the Karen Cartwright (Katharine McPhee) way from the television series Smash! He wished that I never forget his birthday ever again and blew the candle. Small matters that count. I may have forgotten a special day but we ended up sharing something memorable! Such things you do for love... Remz's 26th Birthday Sinangag - may his true wish be granted.

Gabe, in German pronunciation and meaning gift. He is a German Shepherd Dog, born February 13th this year and today has become part of my dog-loving life. I am so happy and so as partner Remz!

This is certainly the latest social application I'm really hooked on! It is both a desktop and mobile check-in app for entertainment and I must say almost anything you do or think about. Well, I'm without a doubt a bona fide couch potato, a homebody. But if I wanna do outdoors I can go mountain climbing or simply party just to go out there once in a while. Various indoor and outdoor activities can be checked into from TV, Movies, Music, Books, Games to Topics and unlock stickers as rewards! Give suggestions, reviews and be a guru as well. Go check-in!
