Can someone give simple directions on how to fix the bend of a lighthouse in a photo caused by the camera lens using Adobe Photoshop?

Thanks!

Stephen, what you need is called "perspective correction". You may likely need a plug-in for Photoshop, depending on which version you have. Start with this...

Photoshop has a few possibilities for lenscorrections.
In PS CS2 you can find some under filters/distort/lenscorrection.
Another possibility is to make a layer duplicate and go to edit/transform. There you can choose between perspective, distort e.o.

Chromatic aberration can be corrected using the RAW-format in the Camera-Raw of PS
