Dehaze a Photo in Lightroom Classic CC: Overview

            You can dehaze a photo in Lightroom Classic CC to improve the photo’s sharpness. This effect lets you adjust the amount of haze or fog in a photograph. You can remove haziness in a photo to increase clarity. Alternatively, you can also add haze to create an artistic effect. To dehaze a photo in Lightroom Classic CC, first open the selected photo in the Develop module.

            In previous versions of Lightroom Classic, the “Dehaze” slider appears in the “Effects” panel. In the most recent versions of Lightroom Classic CC, the slider moves to the “Basic” panel. To access the “Dehaze” slider in Lightroom Classic CC, expand the Basic panel in the Develop module.

            The “Dehaze” slider then appears in the “Presence” section of the Basic panel. To add or remove haze, then click and drag to adjust the slider. Moving the slider to the left, into negative values, increases the level of haze. Moving the slider to the right, into positive values, decreases the level of haze. To reset your adjustments, if needed, double-click the slider to return it to its default setting.
