Does anybody know how to fix this chromatic aberrations (magenta coloured lines around the leafs) in Photoshop CS 5? The image is a tone mapped HDR image generated from 3 images. Lens correction was done before the HDR image was generated.

HDR Image with chromatic aberrations.

What you see is not chromatic aberrations. It´s just the movement of the leafs between shots.

In your's HDR software you must check the option «reduce ghosts» or something similar.

Note: I found this via this question on photo.stackexchange which seems to have quite an amount of stuff on chromatic aberrations, more than I was expecting to be honest as I didn't think it would be that common an effect.

It seem there is a part of the Adobe suite called "Photoshop Lightroom" which can apparently be used to adjust out these aberrations, see this tutorial on how to reduce chromatic aberration found via this question.

I have already reduced chromatic aberrations for the 3 single images. But it cannot be removed completely. The HDR toning seems to emphasis chromatic aberrations. For the moment, I remove the aberrations by using the Stamp Tool or one of the Healing Tools, but this is very uncomfortable. By the way, I used Lightroom to reduce chromatic aberrations, but Photoshop can to it too. – Ronny Jun 2 '11 at 14:59
Lightroom is just branded Photoshop Lightroom. It has little to do with PS. – Joey Jun 2 '11 at 15:40
Yes, I know this. – Ronny Jun 4 '11 at 10:11
