It must have been an exciting week for photographers and designers as the new Photoshop CC 2015 just came out. Adobe released Photoshop CC 2015 by mainly keeping designers in its mind as the new update has added and improved the designing experience in Photoshop, especially with the addition of Artboard that was one of the primary feature of Adobe Illustrator. I’ll be covering up the Artboard in my next few tutorials, and I’ll also explain each new feature in details in my coming tutorials. So sit tight and let the fun begins.
This tutorial is about the new feature Dehaze in Photoshop CC 2015. This tool (or basically a Camera RAW setting) works amazingly. As the name gives you impression that it only removes haze, but the thing is that it adds haze also. Frankly speaking, I see that the results are good but there are chances of improvements, and I am sure Adobe will improve this feature in the next coming Photoshop update that it releases regularly.

What is Dehaze in Photoshop?
Probably you already guessed the function of this feature. De-Haze; it removes haze from a photo. This is probably one of the most requested feature from the people living in the northern side of our planet. Lol! just kidding!
Before the launch of this feature, you also could remove or add Haze in Photoshop, but that was time consuming. I uploaded a tutorial on YouTube on How to add Mist in Photoshop. With a speed of 150%, the tutorial is about 8 minutes long. So you can imagine the time it used to take to add haze in Photoshop. But the the launch of this feature, haze can be added or removed within few seconds or does it? Let’s find out.
Where is Dehaze Option Located in Photoshop?
For a beginner, it must be rather difficult to locate the dehaze option on Photoshop; it can also be difficult for a moderate, and a advanced users. The fact that it’s not included as an adjustment layer makes it difficult to locate.
You can find the new dehaze in Photoshop CC 2015 in Camera RAW filter. Go to Filter>Camera RAW Filter, and switch to Effect tab.
How to Use Dehaze in Photoshop CC 2015?
So now let’s begin to understand how Dehaze works in Photoshop CC 2015. I’ll be explaining this by applying this feature on a stock image.
Before we use Dehaze in Photoshop, I would like to duplicate my background layer so that in case anything goes wrong, I will still have the backup. You can do it by pressing Ctrl+J/Cmd+J.
