Chromatic Aberration

Chromatic aberration (distortion), also known as ‘colour fringing’ is a common optical problem. It occurs when a camera lens fails to bring all colour wavelengths to the same focal plane, or when the wavelengths of colour focus in different positions on the plane.

So, what can we do, this is my method to reduce the affect using Photoshop?

As I will probable use this again I am going to save it as an Action, so open up your Action Panel and click on create new set in my case I called it MyActions  click OK then click on create new Action I have called my action CromaticA.

Start Record

  1. Duplicate image
  2. Select Filters / Gaussian Blur set the radius 15 pixels click OK
  3. Change the Blending mode for normal to colour
  4. Add a layer mask, you may need to Ctrl Backspace to make it black
  5. Click on stop record
  6. Now select you brush tool and paint the affected area

If you zoom in you should see a reduction of the Chromatic Aberration.
