ON1 Short Clip – Reduce or Enhance Haze & Fog

The ability to reduce or enhance haze and fog is really easy with ON1 Photo RAW. Watch this short video and see just how easy it is.

    Hmm, the extent of the Haze slider functionality is rather subtle. We will see, how it works in more real-life situations …

    Hi Hudson

    I will look forward to playing with the haze reducing slider, but I tend to agree with Petr. However, maybe I am being a little unfair, as by being subtle it perhaps allows us head room in which to add dynamic contrast, (and other treatments), without taking things too far?

    An explanation of the structure slider, i.e. how it works and what it does, would be appreciated.

    Best wishes, David Price.

    Dehaze is a bit image dependent I find. Here I feel like we see the right amount of sharpness and contrast come back from the fogged in opposite valley wall. But yes, many of these Develop sliders are subtler than the filters in Effects which does leave a bit more headroom as we bounce back and forth with RAW files.

    David, structure is very akin to Dynamic Contrast, but with a much more subtle effect at this first stage of the Develop process.

      Thanks Hudson,

      If we are to process a raw file into a good foundation for a stack of effects filters, then subtle would be good. As it also allows us considerable lee way when we start to refine our photos, with the effects filters that can also be added to a photo in Develop.

      I would guess, from your description, that the Structure slider is also acting as a subtle sharpening tool.

      I tend to push the ISO to the max, in a lot of my photos. – (As I try to handhold my camera at ridiculously low shutter speeds. While my family stand behind me, expressing their impatience. ‘How dare I disrupt yet another family walk, and Dad, don’t even think about bringing a tripod’). So, I hope that there will also be some noise reduction tools, that can be applied in Develop.

      Looking forward to the launch of Photo Raw.

      Best wishes, David Price.

    Sublte…definitely. I hardly saw any difference & the biggest difference I did see was in the blue sky, which in my opinion was become oversaturated to the point I was cringing, as it was way more saturated then any other area of the image.

    Has anyone seen the Dehaze feature in Lightroom CC (or V6 Standalone if that has it)? It is available as a brush & although I didn’t personally use it during the year that I had an Adobe Photography Plan, I watched a video of Blake Rudis demonstrating it & it looked amazing. I think On1 really should build DeHaze in as a Brush at some stage. Having said that, I look forward to the release of On1 RAW & trying it along with filters on atmospheric pollution, which is the closest to fog that we see for about 95% of the year in South Australia.

      Lightroom 6.1 (desktop) onwards contains the de-haze code but does not have the “Slider” included. There are a few plugins that add the ability to access the feature quite effectively.

      Yes the ON1 effect did look rather subtle with a somewhat over-saturated sky. Could one reduce the blue + cyan saturation is the same way you can in Lightroom?

        Hi Em

        Speaking for myself, I’m not worried by the changes to saturation, because the existing ON1 10.5 has a very effective colour adjustments filter, which would deal with both the ‘over saturated sky’ and the ‘digital grass’.

        The current effects filters work with well ON1’s precise, but easy to use masking brushes. So, it would be easy to selectively desaturate only some areas of the photo.

        I very much doubt that ON1 will take leave of it’s senses and decide to delete any of their current effects filters, when they launch Photo Raw.

        Best wishes, David Price
