    Indeed it is. Thin you could achieve the effect with gimp pretty easily with a layer overlay and a good mask.

    Frankly, it's easy if you create a mask as a grayscale copy of the image, and then use levels to differentiate from white to black.

    It's just like selecting hair really.

    Yeah I've got a portable version of 2.7 - I really love the power that tool is going to bring to the table. I

    while it might make things easier, you will still have to make it manually for a perfect selection.

    FX-Foundry has a pretty decent plug-in to simulate infrared.
    eg-infrared-simulation

    After install you will find it under FX-Foundry/Photo/Effects/EG Infrared Simulation.

    Then you just need to create a mask on the B&W layer copy, and fill it with black.
    Now using white, paint in your color.Now you can change that color to anything you like by choosing the mask and selecting all the white in the mask.You will have to do this for each color (a separate mask).

    Example (EG_Infrared with mask)
    [​IMG]

    Personally i use Tintii, the freeware, and get very close to the same results.
    Tintii can be called from Gimp through Rob A's Shellout.py or the Photo Shop 8bf plugin through the Adobe plug-in initializer PSPI.exe.

    Example (Tintii)
    [​IMG]

    Now i just open the saved Tintii image in Gimp and go to Colors/Curves and play with it a bit

    Pretty easy with Tintii. :)
