In this video tutorial, I am going to show you a couple of tricks that you can use with adjustment layers and blending modes. So, I have opened up a new image from the garden folder, and go to the Add Fill Adjustment icon at the bottom of the layers palette and select the Invert Adjustment Layer. And, this is going to flip the pixels to the negative and we are just going to duplicate the same adjustment layer, and now you can just drag it to the new layer icon to duplicate it.
And, when you do that, it looks like it did in its normal state, but we are going to change the blending mode of the second inverted copy to luminosity, and it is going to give you the effect of color infrared film. Let us try that again on another image just to go through the steps again, here we go.
So, we select the add fill adjustment, invert, you can also just hit Command J on a Mackintosh or Ctrl+J on a PC to duplicate that again and change its blending mode to luminosity. And, we have got that color infrared type of effect. Now, I am going to delete both of these layers here by Shift clicking on both of them, holding my Option key down on the Mac, Alt on a PC. And, I can delete both of the same time by clicking the trash icon.
Now, if you are going to be using this for an effect, it is very simple to make an action out of it. So, I am going to open up my actions palette and bring that over here, and let me separate that from layers here. And, I am going to highlight my set that has my name on it, and I am going to click on the new action icon and title this “color infrared”, and click record.
And, I am just going to repeat those steps once again. I am going to add an invert, I am going to duplicate it, and change to the top inverts blending mode to luminosity, and then I am going to stop the action.
Okay, let us see if that works, now of course, when you are saving this out, you have want to go to image duplicate, and create a flattened copy of your original. You do not want to overwrite your original with the infrared effect so always make a duplicate. Now, let us see how our action works.
Let us open up another file here. All right, so we can play this action here by just clicking the play button, but we got select where we named it. So, we will just click on the state color infrared and click play, and boom, we got it done. I am going to close this without saving and open up another image. Let see how this guy works, click the play button and boom, we have got it done.
So, that is it for this infrared tip, I hope you enjoyed it.
