    Cool tip – thanks! I usually use the sponge tool to remove CA but that doesn’t work in all situations so your technique will be helpful!

    Thanks for the tip. Because the CA was so strong, I had to push the gaussian blur up to 100 in order to get rid of it.

    Wow! Great tip! My scans of my pen drawings had a lot of Purple Fringing. Your work-around really helps! Thanks a lot! Frank

    Nicole, I have football photos where there is an orange helmet and a white face mask and the fringing is pretty extreme. Where I have black against the face mask I have no problem with this technique but on the orange helmet it turns the purple to grey and I didn’t know if I had to clone the color back in or if there was an easier way to make sure the orange butted up against the white as it should naturally.
