Chromatic Abberation

I have only Photoshop Elements.  Is there a simple process for removing so-called "Purple Fringing" while preserving overall color balance? Does one have to "Select" the fringe and change it's color or is there an easier way? Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks,

Richard

Re: Chromatic Abberation

Open a Hue/Sat adjustment layer.  Choose Magenta in the drop down menu and click the dropper on the fringe.  You can now desaturate and/or change the hue.  Invert the mask to hide the effect and then paint the effect back in over the fringe.

Yes! Easy

In ACR, when converting to tiff, go to the lens icon. Under the Color tab, make sure the Remove Chromatic Aberation box is checked. Under the Profile tab, make sure your particulat lens is selected (vignetting and dsitortion). Done.

You might be right. It IS in Elements, but perhaps it does not have this feature (Elements uses a slightly crippled version of ACR). Someone with Elements 11 might want to jump in.

Thanks for the tip.  I have Elements 10.  My ACR does not have this, but I will check to see if I can download a newer version which might.

Thanks.

You can try this PhotoShop action http://blog.lorrifreedman.com/index.php/2008/07/30/hdr-and-the-purple-fringe/ , not sure if it works in Elements.

Re: Yes! Easy

Are you shooting with a Nikon camera?  Nikon View NX2, a free download, has a ca correction tool.  I just move the affected files completed in Elements through the Nikon software for a very quick click and save.  Maybe do another adjustment or two while I am at it.  Canon's software may have the same option.  There are other plug-ins you can upload (ptlens, for instance) that offer ca correction.  I am hoping Adobe adds this feature in Elements 12 but I am not holding my breath.

I think this is the preferred route to getting rid of it.
