How to Fix Chromatic Aberrations Using Lightroom

Chromatic aberration is by far one of the most common lens issues you will have to deal with, particularly with cheaper lenses or wide-aperture primes, and it can be quite distracting if not addressed. Thankfully, most post-processing programs can handle it quite easily nowadays. This awesome video tutorial will show you how to quickly and easily remove chromatic aberrations with just a few clicks using Lightroom.

Coming to you from Chelsea Nicole Photography, this great video tutorial will show you how to quickly fix chromatic aberration in photos. Chromatic aberration is the type of thing that you sometimes don't even notice during the editing process, then you can't stop staring at it once you export the final image. It occurs because the refractive index of lens elements varies with the wavelength of the light, meaning that not all colors are focused to the same point. It typically appears as green or magenta banding around edges of high contrast in a photo. Luckily, Lightroom has a dedicated function made specifically for handling chromatic aberration, and it only takes a few seconds to get rid of all but the very worst cases. Check out the video above for the full rundown.
