For those wanting to explore Color Infrared Photography, these actions will give some interesting effects. Using the swap red/blue color channels produces an almost natural blue color for the sky, leaving the remainder of the scene relatively untouched. The effect is rendered on a separate layer so you can simply delete the layer if you don't like the result. This action works best if you have a scene with a copper-colored hued sky. Possibly, your digital camera won't produce this color. In any case, either of these actions (swap blue/green or swap red/blue) do produce interesting effects. This action seems to have little use beyond Infrared Photography.
 
Download & Installation Instructions: Please note that the action has only been tested for Adobe Photoshop Version 7.0. It might work on lower versions but it has not yet been confirmed. All tested versions will be posted on this page as soon as results have been confirmed. The download of the Chris's Photoshop Action is extremely fast due to the small compressed file size. The name of the file is: chrisswapchannel.zip. The chrisswapchannel.zip file must be unzipped to extract the action file named swapchannel.atn.
 
If this is an upgrade to an earlier version of the Swap Channel Action, delete the old action version from the Adobe Photoshop action menu. The chrisswapchannel.atn file must be placed in the Presets/Photoshop Actions folder that is located in the Photoshop program folder. Click on Photoshop Help ---> Search ---> and enter "action" for the searched word. The Adobe Photoshop section entitled "Saving and Loading Actions" explains the exact location and procedure for the action file depending on the type of operating system you are using.
 
In the Adobe Photoshop Action Window, click on the little circular arrow located in the top right hand corner of the window. Select Load Actions and then select the file chrisswapchannel.atn. The new action will only be displayed if you copied the chrisswapchannel.atn action file into the correct directory.
 
Please DO NOT send any email questions to Outdoor Eyes regarding the installation or use of the Chris's Swap Channel Action. Thank you.

The Road From Coast Guard Beach On Cape Cod.

I love the views on the road to Coast Guard Beach and the views on the road from Coast Guard Beach. We were on our way to Nauset Light Beach from Coast Guard Beach when Phil took this photograph. So pretty, don’t you think?

Nauset Marsh On Cape Cod.

One of my favorite things to do is… get up and go for a hike! I am definitely a morning person and the earlier, the better! The colors were so pretty at Nauset Marsh this particular morning. I love the soft blues and pinks. And that reflection of the  sun on the water… so pretty, … Continue reading Nauset Marsh On Cape Cod.

Winter Morning On Coast Guard Beach On Cape Cod.

The colors were so pretty this morning at Coast Guard Beach with the sun shining hazily in the sky. The sky almost looks like summer until you see the beach.
