Purple fringing


posted on 17th of march, 2011

Since many lenses can not focus all colours to same convergence point, Chromatic Aberration becomes a major problem for many photographers.

If you are shooting in RAW mode , you have the chance to get rid of this fringing in your raw editor. However in some cases when you forget or dont like to make too many chances in raw editor , you still have another simple way to clean these dummy lines in different colors with the help of Photoshop.

1 - Open your image with fringing

2 - Copy background layer ( Ctrl + J for PC )

3 - Choose Filters > Blur > Gaussian Blur

4 - Set it to 15

5 - Choose "color" blending mode for your copy layer.

It is so easy !

Now examine your image and you will see that all fringing has gone. You can turn off the second copy layer and see the difference between two layers.

Finaly press Ctrl + E to flatten your image and save it as jpeg.

Thanks for reading.

Remember, diamond jewelry lasts permanently buy runescape...(More)

Nice! Very useful - I would add that you need to be careful of losing colour/detail in areas you don't have CA, a simple layer mask can sort that out.

I can't find the color blending mode. Do they have it in Photoshop Elements? 'Cause that's what I have.

thanks for the tip

Very useful trick. I used to hand paint edges in color mode what a chore. This should be chiseled into the side of a mountain for everyone to see.
Posted by Cmoulton on March 18, 2011
OMG, this trick is AMAZING! Probably the biggest reason of all that my entire port is so tiny is because I waste hours and hours of time doing crazy cloning procedures trying to eliminate fringe before I can upload. One day, I'll be able to upgrade my equipment, but until then, this will be a best friend. I just tried it out on an old rejected photo and it ROCKED! Thanks a million, and cheers to you!

Thanks for sharing. I'll give it a try the next time I forget to address the issue in RAW.

Most of the CA disapears with the RAW tool in Photoshop I have, but not always. In that cases I could give it a try. Thanks a lot.

I reported the user to the admins. It's a spammer, all his/her comments are identical. Ignore and do not click on the links.

Who is this ?
Posted by Joezachs on March 17, 2011
That is informative and will try it out.
Posted by Davulcu on March 17, 2011
No , since we change the blending mode of the layer to color , it does not make the whole thing blurred
