Color Infrared Photoshop Action

With the Color Infrared Photoshop action you can give any image (at any size and resolution) a professional color infrared effect without buying expensive IR filters/lenses for your camera. The action will make 5 different infrared effects that you can later change and make all the adjustments you want to make your photo looks just perfect.

How to install (action):

  1. Open Photoshop.
  2. In the Actions Panel click on the top right icon and from the dropdown menu select "Load Actions".
  3. Locate the "WeGraphics - Color Infrared.atn" file and click on Load.

How to use:

  1. Open your image. Be sure that is set as the background (if not, go to Layer > New > Background from Layer).
  2. In the Actions Panel, expand the "WeGraphics - Color Infrared" action container.
  3. Select the "Infrared" action and click on the play button.


  1. Increase or decrease the glowing effect by increasing or decreasing the opacity of the "Glow" layer inside each of the 5 layer groups.
  2. Change the Opacity and values of the different layers inside each layer group to achieve new effects.
  3. Turn off all the "Base" layers inside each layer group and play with the layer group opacity.
