How to get the Dehaze feature on Adobe Lightroom 6.1 (free presets)

If you’re not an Adobe CC subscriber then you didn’t get the Dehaze feature with the latest Adobe Lightroom update. The Dehaze tool is available only for Lightroom CC and Photoshop CC, and not for Lightroom 6. If you never heard about Dehaze have a look at the short video above.

There is a way to have Dehaze in Lightroom 6, it comes as a preset and it is free. Prolost released Prolost Dehaze for Lightroom 6.1, a series of presets that give you intuitive, visual access to the new Dehaze feature without requiring a Creative Cloud subscription. You can download the preset for free.

Adobe Lightroom 6/CC tips & tricks round-up

The Dehaze feature Adobe gave to Lightroom CC and Photoshop CC is impressing. Watch the the video above and see for yourself (credit: Howard Pinsky). Unfortunately Lightroom 6 wasn’t updated with this feature. Very disappointing.

Adobe Lightroom CC updated (gets “Dehaze” feature, LR 6 not)

Adobe today updated Lightroom CC and Photoshop CC, calling it a “milestone release” (see press release below).

The most notable feature is the “Dehaze” tool for Lightroom CC (video above). And the bad news is that Lightroom 6 will not get it. Adobe has different update paths for LR 6 and LR CC, and that’s not good in my opinion.

You can get an overview of the new features at Lightroom Killer Tips.
