If you've arrived at this page with knowledge about the Digital Infrared work-flow that's great. However should you need to learn more about infrared you can either start at the beginning of my 'Know-How', at:
Digital IR Capture & Work-flow

Or if it's just 'Channel-Swapping' you need to learn about, then use this link: Channel-Swapping

If you're happy to simply download and use the 'Action' then read on.

What Does The 'CRH IR Action' Do?

It saves time by taking the labour out of the essential steps to Channel-Swap
and completes the task in the blink of an eye.

The 'Action' performs the following:

Auto Levels boosts the contrast of the image

Channel-Swap alters the red /blue balance

Photo Filter ('Underwater' setting, a cyan tone) helps to remove any magenta cast should you have one.

Black & White Filter enables tonal control of the image by adjustment of 'sliders'.

All the stages are by Adjustment Layers and therefore editable and you can switch each one off if needed.

As a reminder of the 'Channel-Swap' structure, see the screen grab below
