Cut your fringe
Are your photos plagued by colour fringing? Capture NX-D’s lens correction tools have the answer...
What’s the problem?
This photo was taken with a superzoom lens at its maximum focal length. This has produced strong colour fringing, which is most visible around the cabin of the boat. Interestingly, Capture NX-D can correct chromatic aberration caused by non-Nikon lenses too, like this one.
Lateral Color Aberration
Open the Camera and Lens Corrections panel and click the Lateral Color Aberration box. Give Capture NX-D a moment to re-render the image. The difference is dramatic. Capture NX-D seems able to detect and fix chromatic aberration without the need for dedicated lens profiles.
Axial Color Aberration
Axial colour aberration can appear as a softer kind of fringing around objects, or it may add a colouration to the blur around out-offocus objects. This checkbox is designed to fix it. You may not need it, but it’s worth a try if the Lateral Color Aberration tool hasn’t done the job.
