We’ve shared with you the incredible capabilities of Adobe’s new Dehaze tool. Unfortunately, the Dehaze feature is only available for subscribers of Adobe Creative Cloud who have Lightroom CC; if you’ve opted to outright purchase Adobe Lightroom 6, you’re out of luck. Until now, that is.

As the video below shows, Oliver Pohlmann from We Are So Photo shows off the capabilities of a series of presets created by the team at Prolost that attempt to recreate the capabilities of Adobe’s Dehaze feature.

There’s no telling how similar the results are, as we don’t know what exactly it is Adobe is tweaking behind the scenes to get the results they do, but it’s safe to say Prolost’s presets get pretty darn close in comparison The article previously implied that the results were not identical to Adobe's; this is incorrect, as Stu Maschwitz points out. These presets use the exact same underlying processing as Adobe's Dehaze slider. Stu additionally noted that no credit card information needs to be entered to download the presets, contrary to what the video states. 

You can download the presets for free in Prolost’s store by clicking here. Just make sure you have the latest version of Lightroom 6, as these presets only work with Lightroom v6.1.1.
