Step 3: Lighten Green Foliage

■ To give the green foliage the characteristic whiteness that leaves refracting infrared would show, choose Image ^ Adjustments ^ Channel Mixer to get the Channel Mixer dialog box. Click the Monochrome box at the bottom of the dialog box. Set the Green channel to +200 by dragging the Green slider all the way to the right. To keep the tonal range looking correct, you need to make all the numbers add up to 100%. As a good point to start, Chris recommends setting Red to -50% and Blue to -50%, as shown in Figure 24.3. These starting points look pretty good, so leave them as they are. Click OK to apply the settings.
