    I have been messing around with my Hoya R72 IR filter and finally got some results I am somewhat happy with. My first couple of attemps were complete flops so this is encouraging to me. ..finally!

    4. How do I get rid of the tilt in this picture? It seems as though it would be simple to do but I am having some troubles.

    6. Just a picture of my friend's tattoo, I thought it was interesting because it is completely colored in but with the IR, only the blue shows up. I wish I would have taken a normal picture to compare it with.

    Please tell me what I could do to improve these pictures. Thanks

    Sorry about the screwy picture sizes, photobucket at its best again.

    If you have Photoshop it's a good program to use to get rid of tilt.

    I have photoshop but I don't know how to get rid of the tilt. I am still learning.

    Now that I go back and look at these pictures, they seem a little flat, especially 2, 3, and 4.

    use the marquee tool and select the entire image. The just hit ctrl+t and it will allow you to move it. This is otherwise known as the transform feature (edit->transform ->rotate). simply move your cursor outside of the picture and click and drag. I like to pull down a ruler line to somewhere horizontal (the roof edge in this shot) and align them.

    While they may still look a little flat in colours, the one that had the tilt (which Dana, the GunSmoke, corrected for you here) "hits the nail on the head" - really! I like that one best of all and the sky was much to your advantage when you went out for your IR shoot! Very nice!
