Infrared Profile Pack

The Infrared Profile Pack contains custom dcp profiles for over 120 cameras. These are used to set a white balance in Infrared images with Adobe Lightroom, Adobe Photoshop, and other editors.

Lightroom and Photoshop support a White Balance Temp range of 2,000 kelvin to 50,000 kelvin. This range does not provide enough values required for color infrared digital photography. When using the default Adobe Raw profiles, you may find that your Temp values reach one end of the scale or the other, without being able to get to the desired white balance.

Lightroom White Balance panel

The profiles in this pack are used shift the color temperature of your infrared image. This allows you to select a desired color temperature value within the existing range. There are two profiles included for each camera; Infrared Temp -50 and Infrared Temp -100. Different combinations of cameras and infrared cut-off filters may react differently to temperature shifts. This is why two profiles are included.
