In color digital holography the recording and reconstruction of three holograms, by an optical setup operating in multi-wavelength mode, is necessary. Incorrect superposition of different images at various wavelengths may occur due to the presence of chromatic aberrations. We demonstrate that the compensation of the chromatic aberrations can be achieved by using all of the information contained in the multi-wavelength digital holograms. Chromatic aberration is extracted from phase maps reconstructed at different wavelengths, resulting in perfect full color amplitude reconstructions. The method has important applications in color 3-D holographic imaging and display.
