    What are some good steps or tools to use in Photoshop to kind of fix some purple fringing (chromatic abberations)? I barely know how to use the thing, so if someone could point me in the general direction, that'd be cool. I'm sure this is probably a common problem for alot of people with cheap cameras.

    try this:

    in PS, Zoom image to 100%
    Select Image -> Adjust -> Hue/Saturation
    Change the Edit: dropdown to "Magentas"
    Change Saturation to -80 and Lightness to +16 (you may try different values)
    push the colour ramps up and down the spectrum around the magenta level until you turn all the chromatic aberration completely grey

    This worked pretty good. I played with the Lightness alittle bit and thought - values were better, but this is great. Thanks.
