Hello! My name is Stefanie, and today I will show you how to change eye color using Gimp.
I have used my lovely eye for this tutorial.

First of all you need to open the photo you are going to be using.

Next select the free hand tool.

Make sure your settings are the same as mine.

Carefully trace around the eye, excluding the pupil.

Now You need to select Filters → Colors → Colorify.

Now all you need to do is choose from a wide assortment of colors! I will choose Teal.

Here is what you end up with.

Looks better farther away. ;]

Feel free to ask questions!
Thanks for looking!

hmm. itll only let me trace once, so i can only outline around the eye, and not the pupil.
