so from a cool inside I went into a hot, humid outside. I know I had to let the camera adjust, but took some shots too quickly ( and of course the 1st ones are the best) and the .jpeg pictures have a fog on the images due to the humidity. is it possible using the canon DPP4 to edit out the fog? Tks

You can increase the contrast, saturation, clarity, and sharpness, but the short answer is no - you can't remove it, nor can you reduce it very much.

DPP no, Adobe LR and PS both have a 'Dehaze' slider that works very well. Post or message the picture and we can run it for you.

got it. tks. ive found where I can switch tabs to access some of what you mentioned, but in the attachment below, with the picture in the edit mode, I can't make the settings change(where the arrow is pointing). Know how to activate those slides? Tks

okay - so I guess the slides aren't active because the things can't be edited unless in raw.... anyhow, heres on unedited and one edited - better I think.

is the dehazer better? ---- won't let me put the edited one - file too big

well you could go and try full ww2 b&w restoration mode but that could take ages if you do it right with absolutely no guarantee that there is a usable and beautrifull image at the end.
a tutorial... https://youtu.be/5fzb-qLL2wo

it is sad because you can see how all the colors and the image are supposed to look like but it just isn't there.

In lightroom, there is a one function to reduce haze or fog. It adjusts the image to remove a lot of the blue, so you end up with a image that has too much yellow, red, and green. Still, it is usually a improvement.
