Do a search of this forum for info on how to activate it in LR 6.
I am also a Lightroom 6 buyer and user.
I just found out that the "DeHaze" in-program photo development feature is not available for Lightroom 6, but only in Lightroom CC.
It’s definitely disappointed to find out that Adobe are selling Lightroom 6 as an inferior product, when the noted difference made to Lightroom 6 buyers at that time is the “inter-platform”/ “mobility”features between Lightroom 6 and Lightroom CC, not the in-program photo-development features.
“Adobe” as a brand is definitely a big disappointment to Lightroom 6 buyers and users, as this inferior approach to Lightroom 6 is totally uncalled for.
I, for one, will have thumb down for Adobe in the future should I be asked for brand-user satisfaction or for brand perception of “Adobe”or brand endorsement, given their efforts to disappoint and discourage Adobe-brand buyers and users.
What a way to demolish a once-preferred brand! What a pity!
Lightroom 6 is a standalone version. Historically, standalone versions have not received feature updates. Feature updates have been reserved for UPGRADES to a newer version which has had to be paid for. So the Adobe policy really hasn't changed. I would expect that when Lightroom 7 is eventually released in a couple of years that the tools will be upgraded to include the dehaze tool. Until then, you got what you paid for; Lightroom 6 with the feature set that you decided to purchase. And, as in the past, it will be necessary for you to wait for the next upgrade to get new features.
LR 6 came with everything LR CC had when it was released. Because of the different licensing systems LR 6 can't get the most current feature updates like the CC version can. LR 6 will still get the new Camera RAW updates just like the CC version gets but not new Features.
Look at it this way. You paid $79 (US) for an upgrade of LR. For $120- a year you get both LR, along with any and all new features that may be added to LR, and the most current version of PS.
I use to pay $79 for a LR upgrade and $199 for an upgrade to PS almost every year. That's a total of $278 every 12-16 months. I now pay $240- for 24 months for both. I saved $38+. I thought the same thing when Adobe was trying to push PS at $19 a month (At first it was $29 a month). But since they lowered the monthly subscription fee and included LR it's not a bad deal. IMHO.
