Default Infrared - Winter Summerland

I wasnt going to bother with this challenge but it gave me the opportunity to learn a couple things in Photoshop. This is the results. A fake infrared.

I don't know what you did in PSE but your results are very close to using an IR filter to capture an actual IR image. The brilliance of the white in the leaves is typical of actual IR photos. The slight colorings that remain are not. At any rate, good job!

I left a hint of color on purpose. Here it is in just grayscale. Is this closer Cal?

Default Fake Infrared in Photoshop

1. Duplicate background and name Infrared.
2. Select Green Channel
3. Apply Gaussian Blur 5 pixels on low res image. More pixels if using hi res.
4. Change Blend mode of Infrared layer to SCREEN
5. Add a Channel Mixer Adjustment Layer
6. Settings for Channel Mixer dialogue box are -50, 200, -50 and click Monochrome.
7. Lower Opacity of Infrared Layer to 35%
8. Add New Layer above Channel Mixer Layer and call it Grain.
9. Fill layer with white and add Noise 20%, Uniform and click Monochromatic.
10. Change Blend mode of Grain layer to MULTIPLY
11. Duplicate Background layer again and call it Colorize.
12. Drag the Colorize layer up between the Channel Mixer and Grain Layers.
13. Change Blend mode to OVERLAY and lower opacity to around 50%.
14. Flatten and youre done.
If you dont want any color at all just desaturate.
Now anyone like me, without an IF filter but with Photoshop can get in on the Challenge.
