Neutralhazer - Haze Map
The Main window enables the user to display either the processed image or the haze map in the viewing area.
The haze map represents the amount of haze present in the different areas of the image, and is modifiable using the controls described in the "Main window" section.
Here is a sample view of an image haze map:
The areas containing less haze (foreground) are shaded dark gray, while those containing more haze (background) are shaded light gray.
Layer positioning setting
The effect of the layer positioning settings translates, on the haze map, into the areas of light and dark shading.
- Increasing the foreground positioning value expands the surface of the area containing less haze (dark) towards the area containing more haze (light).
- Reduction of the foreground positioning will have the opposite effect.
- Reduction of the background positioning expands the surface of the area containing more haze (dark) towards the area containing less haze (light).
- Increasing the background positioning will have the opposite effect.
Setting the layer correction intensity
The effect of the correction intensity settings translates into lightening or darkening of the gray shading in the haze map, and indicates the amount of processing that will be applied to the image:
- Black shading indicates no image processing.
- White shading, by contrast, indicates maximum intensity processing of the image.
Foreground correction intensity
Reduction of this setting will darken the defined foreground area.
When the area becomes black (value: 0), it will not undergo any processing when the Neutralhazer software is applied to the image.
Background correction intensity
Increasing this setting will brighten the defined background area.
When the area becomes white (value: 100), it will undergo maximum intensity processing when the Neutralhazer software is applied to the image.
