okay, so i took into mind what you guys said about the eye brightening and over/under exposure. i'm not sure what over/under exposure is, but i'm guessing it's about the lighting of the location you're at? correct me if i'm wrong. i just took some pictures of my dog, so i thought i'd share exactly what i did to edit the picture so you know what i'm doing, and so i can get some advice or corrections on any mistakes i may have made. i edited these in photoscape because that's my photo editor. i did in fact use the aperture setting on the camera this time. i don't know what any of these settings mean, but my camera says F8.0 and then next to it says 1/30 when i half-way click the shutter button.

1. first, i resized the picture from 2448x3264 to 1200x1600

2. then, i went to bright, color and to color curves.

3. i moved the color curve up just a bit, and the picture is lightened to look like this.

4. i go back to bright, color and then to deepen and to high.

5. i go to the zoom and zoom in to 100%

6. i go to the tools tab then to effect brush and select brighten - high

7. i brighten the eye and get this

8. then i go back to effect brush and select deepen - high

9. i deepen the eye, get this

10. this is the final product

here is the side by side comparison of sooc - edited

Exposure is how much light is allowed in.. Underexposed pictures are dark and overexposed are too bright.

I don't recognize the program you are using but does it allow you to adjust levels. I use photoshop and I find the manual adjustment of levels to be the best editing tool for dealing with lighting and colour.
