Fixing Hazy Images

This is a one-trick pony, but it’s a good one: Tap on an image to open it in Loupe view, and then tap on the Edit icon in the Action options at the bottom of the screen. When the adjustment tiles appear, tap on the shutter icon on the far left of the tiles and, from the Adjust pop-up menu, tap on Dehaze. Now, just tap on the Dehaze tile, then drag the slider to the right, and it removes haze, mist, etc., from your image (it’s a special form of contrast, and although it’s designed to cut through haze, I use it for all sorts of situations where the image needs more contrast). Drag the slider to the left and (you guessed it) it makes the image foggy (great for morning mist effects). That’s pretty much all there is to this one, but the math behind it is pretty amazing, and this Dehaze feature has won a lot of fans since it was introduced.
