IR Emulation?

Is there a way to emulate IR? I was thinking of color replacement, but it seemed so daunting to change virtually every color that I quickly abandoned that idea. I have some older pictures that I think would be stronger compositionally as IR and would like revist them.

Re: IR Emulation?

there is a way to do it, but i can't remember how. i think luben had posted it, but i could be wrong. do a search for challenges and check the IR one. the poster of the "ir emulation" posted something in there because not everyone had IR capabilities.
it works very well, i did a couple photos like that before i got my filters.

Re: another choice

Probably it is not what you are looking for, but it is nice technic too, in case that some day you want to try it. It was posted by Willem here time ago.

Thanks everyone ...

I'm going to sift through all of this and see what works the best for me.
