Last October, Adobe teased a new ‘dehaze’ feature — then called ‘defog’ — at its annual Adobe MAX conference. Today, Adobe gives us a new, more thorough, look at the seemingly magical feature that removes (and adds) haze/fog to images.

The new feature is said to be ‘coming soon to Lightroom CC,’ according to Adobe. The Dehaze tool will be inside Lightroom’s Develop module as a new slider, ranging from –100 to 100.

Similar to how Lightroom’s various sliders work, the ‘dehaze’ tool can increase or decrease the haze effect present in an image.

No definitive timeframe was given, but it’s safe to say the new 'dehaze' tool will be present in the next update or two of Lightroom CC.
