Brush the Definition adjustment on an image
You use the Definition Quick Brush adjustment to add clarity and reduce haze in a specific area of an image, without adding too much contrast.
Note: You can also apply a Definition adjustment by brushing the Enhance adjustment on an image. However, brushing the Enhance adjustment on an image applies the Contrast, Definition, Saturation, Vibrancy, and Tint parameter settings. You use the Quick Brush equivalents when you need to apply each of these adjustments in different ways to different parts of the photo. For more information about the Enhance adjustment, see Adjust contrast, clarity, and saturation.
