Fixing a chromatic aberration

Sometimes, especially under point-and- shoot cameras, there will be imperfections in the lens that lead to what we call purple fringing or chromatic aberration. And there is a tool in Aperture now that allows us to address that if it becomes a problem, if we notice it. So, I want to show you the tool, and also show you what this flaw looks like. So, I took this shot with a compact camera. And I am just going to go ahead and hit the V key to open it up, and there is actually some of that fringing right here.

Now you might not be able to see it right now, but if I hit the Z key to zoom on in - see this color is not supposed to be there. See this purple fringing right here? That is a flaw in the lens. When you have a very really bright area against a very dark area, the light rays always don't quite line up just right as they hit the sensor. Now fortunately in Aperture, we have a tool to help us correct that. So, we'll go to Adjustments, and we'll go down here to Chromatic Aberratio...
