9 LIFT THE SKIN If you want to give your subject’s skin a fresh, bright feel, here’s a quick ix you can try. Simply go to the Luminance tab in the HSL panel and grab the target icon for on-image control, then drag upwards over the skin slightly. This will make the skin slightly brighter, resulting in a fresher feel that works well for beauty shots. 10 CUT THROUGH THE HAZE The Dehaze slider can be very useful for landscapes, as it reduces atmospheric haze and adds punch to flat scenes. The slider is found in the Efects panel. Simply drag it to the right to reduce haze. The shadows may go too deep, so if necessary go to the Basic panel and lift Shadows and Exposure slightly to compensate.
