    Infra red film is made to be sensitive to infrared light. If the film is just a normal type, it can't detect infrared it won't be able to show it at all.

    So you won't get infrared negatives.

    Can others edit my Photos:

    Depending on how much of the visible spectrum the filter blocks, you might not get anything.

    The short answer is no. With a weak filter and long exposure, you may be able to make an image on regular black and white film, but it won't show any of the interesting effects of infrared film.

    if you are talking about using it with black and white you may get a slight resemblance of IR. Ilfords SFX 200 works like that. I have shot a lot of SFX 200 and it gives somewhat of an IR effect but its definately not IR if you compare it to actual IR its a big difference.
