Infrared Conversion / Work Flow

Feb-2006:  For a long time, I have been planning on putting together a Work Flow to share my method for post-processing.  When I have time, I will be making updates to this gallery.  A small handful of people have expressed some interest, so I hope that I can share this information with many more.  The workflow below is a combination of things I have learned from others (too many to mention) and my own experience.  Comments / feedback are welcome;  I would love to hear your thoughts...

You can visit some of my 300D IR images here:
Also, please check out: for a link to a self modified P&S camera project.
In case it is not obvious, each image will have some descriptions/instructions below it, so you may need to scroll down to read everything.
*** The basic assumption is that you already know how to use Photoshop and understand how to use your camera in Manual mode. ***
