how to get rid of haze

We get it a lot of it no matter the weather due to the gases given off by gums (trees) a friend showed me a quick way in Cs5 opening the jpeg in raw and using the brush, but I have forgotten..............any ideas.

Re: how to get rid of haze

The normal Photoshop way of removing/reducing haze is to bring the contrast up and reduce the (normally blue) colour cast along with a bit of sharpening..... I can't think of a single brush that'll sort it out, although I think there are plugins that will do a very good job of it for you.

A much overlooked and very useful set of tools in PS is the auto tone/colour/contrast - worth giving them a try, especially the contrast one.

Re: how to get rid of haze

In Photoshops ACR you can use the clarity slider or the brush set to clarity to remove haze, it does so by increasing contrast in just the mid tones unlike the contrast tools which effects all tones.
