Lightroom 6 Dehaze Slider Now Available!

I stumbled across this rather funky plugin today: Dehaze Slider for LR6 It’s a fully functional dehaze slider for LR6, and it does exactly what it says on the tin. Simply extract the LRHaze.lrplugin folder to your Lightroom program directory, go File>Plugin Manager, select Add, browse to the plugin folder, select it, and, well that’s it! Directions for use are on the author’s page-…

Lightroom 6 Users: Get Access to The Lightroom CC Dehaze Functionality

In my last post I said it would be possible for standalone Lightroom 6 users to gain access to the new dehaze Lightroom CC feature if the Adobe engineers weren’t very clever about things.

Photography Judges…..they don’t know everything….

Well, most of them don’t and that’s pretty much all you need to know when it comes to entering your photos in competitions. Having sat through some pretty awful judging I’ve learnt that lesson many a time. Sometimes they can be pretty damn inconsistent too- there is nothing more frustrating than seeing your image shot down in flames for an alleged “flaw” and then…
