Ground Breaking Infrared Raw Workflow

One of the most difficult tasks in Infrared Processing is the RAW workflow. Many visible light photographers want to edit their IR images in Lightroom CC or Adobe Camera Raw CC, but until the CLiR Workflow, this has been nearly impossible.

We have discovered how to process your Infrared Images at the RAW level in Adobe RAW editors. This is a breakthrough!

What’s inside Infrared CLiR 1.2.1 Photography Mastery?

The Ultimate Infrared Course and Photoshop Panel. CLiR v1.2 now includes over 400 pre-built Infrared profiles During CLiR course, we taught you how to build a custom profile for your camera. It’s the essence of processing iR with Adobe Lightroom, Camera Raw and Photoshop. No more messing about with the DNG Profile Editor. Just open the CLiR Infrared Profiles Library, pick your camera’s brand and model, copy the dcp file and install it in your computer, thats it. Happy editing!

Frequently Asked Questions

Nope!  There is no subscription required to watch any of the material after you purchase it.
Once you purchase it is yours. You have access to all of the videos and can watch them at your leisure offline.

Not exactly.  Let us explain.

All dot releases will be free of charge to update and we will notify you when that happens.  A dot release is anything that stays within the same generation of the panel but has slight modifications.  For example, 1.1 to 1.2 would be free of charge, but 1.2 to version 2.0 may have an upgrade charge.

Unfortunately, the CLiR Panel will not work with Elements.  Some of the training in the tutorial package may apply, but the Panel will only work in Photoshop CC.

 The CLiR Panel will only work on the following platforms:

  • CLiR Panel extension will work on PC and Mac.

  • Photoshop CC 2018 (v19.1.9) or

  • Photoshop CC 2019 (v20.7)

  • RECOMMENDED: Photoshop 2020 (v21.0.0) and

The CLiR Panel will NOT work on the following platforms:
  • Photoshop Elements
  • Lightroom
  • Versions of Photoshop CS6 and Below 
The panel is in ENGLISH but is fully functional in all languages of Photoshop

While it will not work directly in the plug-in, because it is only for Photoshop CC you may use your favorite plug-in either before or after.   It really depends on where you use your third-party plugins in your workflow.

There really is nothing else out there for Infrared post-production.  The CLiR Panel and Workflow we have created are unique and finally give infrared photographers a clear path to infrared masterpieces.  The IR Workflow is very convoluted without the CLiR information we are providing.  

Please be patient, these are rather large downloads.

The Full Education Bundle: 2 Downloads for a total of 3.10 GB

All of the videos were recorded at 1080p HD and come with high-res images to work with.  While it is a rather large download, it is being hosted on Amazon S3′s reliable server.  It is highly recommended that you use one of the following browsers to download the file:


  • Internet Explorer
  • Chrome

No. Use Infrared custom dcp profiles when shooting with the following filters:

  • Dual Pass (blue, “Super Blue”)
  • 550nm
  • 590nm
  • 665nm
  • 720nm
  • 820nm and above

Note: The Kolari iRChrome does NOT need Infrared custom dcp profiles for editing.

Note: Although you have set the infrared dcp profile to render iR White Balanceit is now up to you to adjust and optimize the Temperature + Tint sliders to get maximum color separation and diversity.

Unpaid endorsements, just pure enthusiasm we couldn’t make these reviews up if we tried!

I was very pleased with the product - until I realized that what I purchased was the "standard edition" and that there was an update on the panel, but not on the corresponding videos. I did send you an email re this and am waiting for a reply.

First of all, you probably need to get an IR converted camera to really enjoy the benefits of this and, if you subscribe to this course, get the extended version in addition (a separate one) as the explanation of some of the subjects, like color balance are covered much better. I enjoyed it so far.

Blake and Tony do an excellent job of explaining the IR process and how it works. The Nerdy stuff is actually very necessary in my opinion so you can get a real understanding of the IR process. I would recommend this course highly to anyone who would has a real interest in IR Photography and how to post process IR photos. I've learned a lot! That being said, be prepared to take notes and watch each video in order. If you're like me you'll be watching the video over and over for a while. 🙂
