Ok, so i used my 50mm f1.8 today and all my pics had red eye...wth! never had this happen before. Maybe it's the lens and i'm not used to it? How can I stop it from happening and how can i get rid of red eye in photoshop?

you should be able to turn off the flash, look at your manual and it should tell you. There is a tool in the tool bar on the left in photoshop, it looks like an eye and it takes out red eye.

it may be on one of the items that you have to right click to get more options....look for the items in your toolbar that have the little black arrow on the corner below it and right click those and see if you find your red eye.....

I dont know what camera you are using.....my flash only pops up on its own in auto...otherwise I have to manually hit the button if I want it....but there should be an option in your manual to turn it off.....

I have an older version of photoshop that doesnt have the red eye tool.

What I do is zoom in and make a selection around the red area in the eye. Then I desaturate it and adjust the contrast so it isnt extremely black but darker than the gray scaled red is. That way you can keep any highlights that are there but still get rid of the red.

If you need to use your on camera flash I would recommend diffusing the light somehow so it's not so harsh. You can buy something like this...

You can also search for DIY ones that you can make yourself out of things you usually have around the house.

I believe flash pops on program mode too? If you're not comfortable in manual mode, try Aperture or Shutter Priority. It shouldn't have to do with the lens though....just the lighting.

Hmm, maybe it doesn't pop on Program mode, I just tried it

well I didn't mean manual focus. The manual setting. It won't pop up on that unless you tell it to.
