Eliminating Unwanted Lens Flare in Aperture

While processing a sunset photo I took at Davenport Beach earlier this week, there was some lens flare that was detracting from the overall image. By using Aperture's Color Adjustment, I was able to eliminate the distracting lens flares on the rocks.

The technique in a nutshell is:

  1. Grab a Color Adjustment brick and select the unwanted flare color in the image
  2. Lower the saturation and luminosity until the flare dissipates. Fiddling with the range may also be needed.
  3. Finally, brush the adjustment in to only the lens flare spot.

I put together a short video showing the technique. Enjoy.
