Dehaze in Lightroom 6.1

Lightroom CC just added a Dehaze slider. People like me with Lightroom 6.1 don't get this. However the Dehaze functionality is still in there, so it can process images with CC sidecars. This means you can Dehaze an image if you want to, it's just more of a pain.

Here's what I did:

Hit the + on the Presets menu (repeatedly) and create presets called Dehaze0, Dehaze10 .. Dehaze50 (or whatever). Note only save the Effects settings. Edit each one in a text editor. Remove all lines in the "settings =" section except:
Dehaze = 0,
EnableEffects = true,
ProcessVersion = "6.7",
Then change the first one to suit the Preset name. Allowed values are -100 to 100, settings below 0 add Fog to the image.

(Note you don't want to just copy and edit one saved preset as they have unique IDs and creating them in Lightroom generates those.)
