Hi there,

Honestly, without seeing an image... hard to know how possible... but really, almost anything is really possible depending on skill.

The simplest way is to rubber stamp/clone tool it out... kinda redrawing the background. For example, I mainly used those tools to redraw the veil after removing the priest from the photo (see attachment).

If it's more complex, then other tools should be used, but all depends on what's available to redraw/reclone.

Sometimes just darkening the affected area or burning it will dissolve the fog if only minor

Hi Angel

Here is a very simple way that may work.

Open a blank layer at the top of the pallet. Set its blendmode to colorburn and fill the layer with its neutral color... white in this case.

Now pick a large soft black brush and reduce its opacity to 3 to 5 percent.

Try just clicking in areas to reduce the fog.

Glad it helped... there is another technique to try as well. Duplicate the background then use Unsharp Mask with the amount setting at 60 and radius at 30. This will not sharpen but increase contrast in a way that will reduce fog or haze.

You could always attach a mask to control the effect.

In channels haze is often in the blue... some people use calculations to mix the red channel with the blue. Then adjust contrast in each channel separately. Then some apply a curves adjustment for contrast or use blendmodes like Multiply, overlay or hard light.....Very complicated, myself i always like simple...
