Dehaze in CS6

I was impressed by the dehaze feature in Eric Renno's talk on tuesday which he said was only available in Photoshop CC.

Fear not. It is a function of ACR 9.1. If you have Photoshop CS6 and ACR 9.1 or above it can be implemented using the settings menu.

You cannot implement it as a slider as with PhotoshopCC, but you can save a range of settings as presets (Range -100 to +100).

I have tried this and it works. You need to do a bit of .xmp file editing. The instructions are here :- http://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/56001178

 

Update. The dehaze and shake reduction tools are available in Elements 14 as filters as well.

Here are a few examples on an aquarium shot of a tadpole.

Dehaze in 'Elements'

This powerful feature is also implemented in Photoshop Elements 2018, as well as the full Photoshop. You can find in in the 'Enhance' tab of the Editor 

You can either apply it as 'Auto Haze Removal'   (Alt+Ctrl+A)  OR with more user control further down the 'dropdown' as 'Haze Removal' (Alt+Ctrl+Z)
