Fix-CA is a Gimp plug-in to correct chromatic aberration (CA) written in C language.

Current version is Fix-CA 3.0.2.

Home page and plugin download:

GIMP Version: 
Code License: 


to compile and install the plug-in, you need the development library for Gimp. Usually it's in gimp-devel package in your distribution. Use the command gimptool-2.0 --install fix-ca.c

WTF ? I dont get it how to install it. Many gimp plugins are easyer to install.
I have FIL. I cant fully use FIL because I'm missing fix-ca plugin

Tried gimplensfun instead and it works, loading lens corrections from the lensfun database which is even better and faster to use than manual color compoinent shits...

getting error:
/usr/bin/ld: /tmp/ccV9TBZV.o: undefined reference to symbol 'floor@@GLIBC_2.2.5'
/usr/bin/ld: note: 'floor@@GLIBC_2.2.5' is defined in DSO /lib64/ so try adding it to the linker command line
/lib64/ could not read symbols: Invalid operation
collect2: error: ld returned 1 exit status

Have to adjust linker options

export LDFLAGS="$LDFLAGS -lm"
gimptool --build fix-ca.c
this way it builds and then can

gimptool --install-bin fix-ca

this works, hope for you too.

No surprises that would not work for gimp 2.8 , it is a old version for gimp 2.4

But the good new is in the message after yours : Samj compiled for Gimp 2.8 and good chances you could easily do the same for Linux by using the modified sources she included in the zip with the Windows binary.

Sure you don't need the Win binary but you need the modified source code there

This is a plug-in (binary file), not a script, so you must find someone able to compile Mac binaries or learn yourself;)

This is very good and useful, thank you very much.
But I have a problem, as I install this in GIMP 2.6.8 on my Mac with OS X 10.6.1?

Thanks in advance! greetings

Is available also for Windows, here (thank to Francois Collard that did the building, ) may be a good idea (maybe after some testing ) add the download link in the plugin page of Sourceforge ?

Well, we have been testing it for some months, and you know, Photocomix, I have just done a new binary, which is much lighter thanks to better compiling. One thing I'd like to tell the developer: to me, the preview window is a bit too small to see the chromatic fringes in some cases (even with increased saturation). I compiled without touching the code, but I suppose the zoom factor can easily be increased (?)
