Unpurple is a tool for removing purple fringes (axial chromatic aberration) from digital photos using a heuristic of my own.
Currently there is an OCaml implementation which produces a standalone executable with a simple command-line interface. It is fast enough (~ one second per megapixel) but doesn't preserve Exif data and the JPEG compression factor is fixed at 75%.
I gave up on the gimp integration, but if it's up for grabs if anyone is interested.
- Produce a blurred mask from the blue component in the original image.
- Subtract from the original image some amount of blue and red based on the intensities found in the blurred mask, using the following constraints:
- Blue level may not drop below green level.
- Red level may not drop below green level.
- Red:blue ratio may not drop below some constant.
Please refer to the implementation for details and default parameters.
