First attempt IR Colour

Article text
The conversion has been done using ‘Elements 7’, bit out of date now but has the functionality required.

Near Infrared Images are not actually Red, in fact IR has no colour at all the issue with digital capture of IR images in colour is that the Red pixels (in the ‘photosites’ on the camera sensor) do most of the recording with the Green & Blue hardly doing any work at all, so the trick with post capture is to remove the tint created by the Red pixels and try to bring back the detail captured by the Green & Blue.

This is achieved by swapping the colour channels, which sounds easy but i'm struggling if i'm honest, so theres still a bit of work to do here, more practice required in Elements I think.
