Lightroom, complete Basic Panel workflow

Great, thanks. I’ve downloaded Prolost dehaze and will give it a try since I don’t have the CC version of Lightroom. Certainly, a dehaze tool looks very worthwhile.

Don't know what processing software you are using but I know "Dehaze" is available in PSE14.

Any filter in Photoshop Elements or Photoshop for that matter will only work on the converted image and not on the raw so will give inferior results as a general rule to working directly on the raw before converting. The Prolost dehaze is apparently a Lightroom preset so will work on the raw. I've not tried it as I have the CC version.

I used the Prolost presets with Lightroom 6 prior to opting into the CC version because of Photoshop. They work not as well as the slider but well enough. That is, they're less convenient to use but the results are good.

Just tried the Prolost dehaze on a few seaside photos taken today (in Alamy Live News) and it certainly works well. Not as good as a slider, as you have to click on different options to adjust the mount of the dehaze, but it's a lot better than having to change my Adobe License. So thanks again to Justin Case for pointing it out.

Works great. We have had some really dreary dull (we’d call them ‘dreich’ North of the Border) days recently, and today was another. I took a few photos and used the Prolost dehaze (up to +14), and the resulting clarity is brilliant.

Very interesting.
Good to have first hand feed back, as I use the CC version, so I have not tried the Prolost

That's a valuable point to keep in mind. Thanks, Michael.

One aspect of using the preset dehaze from Prolost is that, unless I was doing something wrong, it needs to be the last thing before exporting the image. Like the CC version, it tends to darken the image slightly. It's similar to having to estimate dry-down in black and white printing. With the CC version you can adjust the dehaze using its slider and then go back and lighten the image as needed. I could be just as happy and perhaps happier with an earlier version of Photoshop, but I keep paying Adobe their EUR 11,89 per month because of this feature in Lightroom.
