Dehaze Comes to Adobe Photoshop and Lightroom


That Dehaze feature that Adobe teased last month is now official for Photoshop’s Adobe Camera RAW and Lightroom in a major new Creative Cloud update. The feature helps eliminate fog and haze from photos to create “startlingly clear images.”

Here’s a video in which Adobe’s Terry White shows how the new feature works:

The feature appears as a slider in both programs.


Here’s a before-and-after comparison showing what it can do:


What’s interesting is that the slider can be moved in both directions from the original shot, meaning you can either remove or add haze depending on what look you’d like to achieve.


The feature “is based on a physical model that tries to estimate the amount of light transmission and how it varies across the picture,” Adobe writes.
