Working with the Halo Reduction Quick Brush Controls

You use the Halo Reduction Quick Brush adjustment to remove the blue and purple fringes that are occasionally produced with certain lenses when the image is overexposed.

To brush the Halo Reduction adjustment on an image
  1. Select an image.

  2. Do one of the following:

    • In the Adjustments inspector or the Adjustments pane of the Inspector HUD, choose Quick Brushes > Halo Reduction from the Adjustments pop-up menu.

    • In the tool strip, choose Halo Reduction from the Quick Brush pop-up menu (with a brush icon).

    The Halo Reduction Brush HUD appears, and the Halo Reduction adjustment controls appear in the Adjustments inspector and the Adjustments pane of the Inspector HUD, if both are shown.

  3. Specify the brush stroke settings using the controls in the Halo Reduction Brush HUD.

    For more information about the controls in the Brush HUD, see Controls in the Brush HUD. For more information about applying brush strokes to an image, see Working with Brushes.

  4. Brush the adjustment on the area of the image where you want to remove the halo effect.

The halo effect is removed in the area of the image where the Halo Reduction Quick Brush adjustment is applied.
