    I am glad you dont know..just kidding  -:}} The Dehaze slider can be found in the "Basi"c option In Lightroom, under "Precence". The purpose of the Dehaze tool is to either add or remove atmospheric haze from the background of a photo. If you have a photo with some low-lying fog or haze that is ruining the detail, you can remove it by using this slider. However, it will also affect the detail on the subject. In wildlife photography, you need to be very gentle with this particular slider. By overdoing it with this slide, the detail on the fur/coat/feathers will look like it is over sharpened.



  • Thank you Pennie. Much appreciated.
