    Photoshop Infrared Simulation

    I am sucker for the infrared stuff, I have never been able to get it quite right in photoshop. I usually use a layer with diffuse glow and tweak it around abit:

    I found a great little pdf file which looks like a fantastic way of converting digital to infrared in photoshop:

    Here's quick example to get what infrared does with colours:




    Notice the changes of the red and green colours when an infrared filter is applied.

    That's basically the technique that I've been using, and I also find it neat to add a bit of a color hue to the image afterwards, depending on the photo. It works better on some than others. Here's an example.

    wow, thats wicked matt! when you add the colour, is it hue/saturation or colour balance or something else? Was this shot with a wide angle lens?

    After you do the infared techniques, your image is B&W, so color balancing will have no effect, other than changing the luminosity slightly. You have to use hue/saturation, and click colorize, then what you do from there is up to you That was shot with an 18-55mm lens on a Digital Rebel, so it was effectively a 28-88mm lens. That photo also suffers from barrel distortion, but I actually like barrel distortion in a lot of situations :p Sort of faux fisheye :p
