Infra Red

The below photo is straight out of my converted camera. The only edit was just straighten and crop.

I am not an expert in IR photo but here are my basic steps and I used Affinity:

Channel mixer - on red chanel, red 0; blue 100. Blue channel, red 100; blue 0

White balance

Tone Mapping detail then mask

Channel mixed - on red channel - red 140, blue -42; on blue channel - red 6, green 7, blue 98

Play with the HSL

If you wish, add LUT. Play with opacity. Not really that important step

Add glow ...

Thanks for asking, yes I am better. It was a strong cold that had an effect on my diabetis.

Thank you very much, Thomas. Infrared photos do have a mystical feel.

Thank you, Nancy. I'll give it another go. I know I followed the first couple steps, but the key seems to be getting the white balance right, and I'm just not getting much variety with it. I'm primarily using Rawtherapee and have followed an editing tutorial using it for IR, but I'm just not happy with the output. Thanks so much for taking the time.

You're welcome, Craig. Just a thought - did you create a DNG? That might help in the white balance.
