How to Add and Remove Fog in Photoshop

Learn How to Add and Remove Fog in Photoshop in today's episode! This super quick and easy tutorial will turn you into a fog wizard. Guaranteed.

Removing Fog/Haze

This part of the episode occurs in Lightroom. The feature we use is called "Dehaze" and is a brand new addition for Lightroom CC 2015. Be sure to update your program if you aren't seeing it.

Go to the Develop Module and scroll down to Effects. When you click on that section, you will see a Dehaze slider. Sliding this to teh left will add more haze, and sliding it to the right will remove the haze. It's that simple! It really is amazing how quick and easy this process is!

Also, be aware that this tends to add some odd saturation or color to the image, since so much correction happens when you remove haze. To fix this, you will most likely need to play with the colors and saturation a little bit. In this case, we chose to decrease the saturation to make the colors look more realistic. We also warmed the temperature up quite a bit because it was much too blue after the dehazing.
Adding Fog/Haze

This second section of the episode occurs in Photoshop. To complete the technique, create a new layer and fill it with 50% gray (Shift + Delete and fill with gray). Then, go to Filter - Render - Difference Clouds. You will get a funky looking black and white layer that fills your image. Here is where Blend Modes come in handy!

The Screen Blend Mode makes all of the darks in an image disappear. If you are a Phlearn follower, you should have this down by now! :) So, change the Blend Mode to Screen and you will see the blacks magically disappear.

The clouds that you see left will be just the whites. You can now transform these to be as big or small as you'd like, and use layer masks to paint in specific areas.

Contextual Design and Development is the Driving Force Behind all Successful Mobile Applications

The time of ordinary custom web application design & development is long gone. Today the focus is on contextual design and development. It is the rise in the popularity of mobile applications that has provided the impetus for giving importance to ‘context’ when it comes to app or web development.

We all love mobile apps because they can be used just about anywhere and at any given point of time.

Different users have different needs when it comes to a mobile app and these needs, in part, are determined by their location.
