How To Fix Chromatic Aberration #1

Newbie here.  I was working on a raw file of my daughter on her tricycle.  I noticed that there was chromatic aberration on the handle bars.  A bluish/purple fringe.   I pulled out my Aperture Pro Training book and followed the steps.  As I moved the bluish/yellow slider it began to disappear but her skin developed a greenish glow to it.  What am I doing wrong?  Is there a better way to fix this in Aperture?

Hi Katie, Did you try brushing the adjustment only on the areas with the aberration? Most Aperture adjustments can be brushed on selectively. Thx, -scott

Thanks Scott.  I finally got around to trying it using a brush.  It seemed to help soften it a bit but did not remove it completley.  I even tried the Halo brush.  I’ll play around with it some more.  I need practice using the brushes.  I’m not very comfortable with them.

Sometimes I find you can add an enhance adjustment and then desaturate entirely and brush the effect in selectively. It can work slightly better than the CA module.
