Does intensity of radiation have to do with its frequency?

I don't think so, intensity has to do with the number of photons being emitted, while frequency refers to the wavelengths per second. Intensity also relates to the amplitude of the radiation's wave function.

Intensity is proportional to a wave's amplitude and it typically refers to the amount of photons being emitted, so it is something completely separate from frequency.
