Sometimes, you take a photo that ends up having a haze in it. What do I mean, “haze”? A haze can occur when dust, smoke, or other particles obscure the clarity of the image, particularly the sky. Some parts of the world, I suspect, will have more of an issue than others. And yet sometimes, as I discovered, it has nothing to do with the air quality. Sometimes there’s just too much mist.

Luckily, one of ACDSee Pro 9 and Ultimate 9’s new features is a Dehaze tool. So let’s get started.

Open said image in Edit mode. If you have a number of images to adjust, you may decide you want to get the Actions window involved.

Under the Exposure/Lighting group, select Dehaze. All you need to do next is adjust the Amount slider according to your individual image.

Click Done, then save your work.

Here’s the before and after:

And that’s all there is to it! There you go. You can now take the vagary out of your photos, be it due to pollution, fog, mist, dust, etc. etc.
