How to Remove Chromatic Aberration in Photoshop

Have you ever noticed weird purple coloring around the edges of objects in your photos? This effect is called Chromatic Aberration. It tends to appear in areas of high contrast, such as around a subjects dark hair against a bright sky. There are a few ways to remove this effect, including sliders in Adobe Camera RAW and Lightroom. These sliders can be effective, but I’ve noticed they sometimes reduce color in other areas of my photo that I don’t want changed. In this tutorial, I’ll show you how to remove Chromatic Aberration in Photoshop. This method allows you to be
a little more precise in removing this effect, so you can apply it only where you want it.

Tip: The technique shown in this tutorial is also helpful for reducing the appearance of color casts in your photo.
