    Automatically color those old BW images

    All,

    Today I saw this web page and reminded me of all of you who work with old photos and make videos.

    Since a picture is better than 1000 words:
    Original: test.jpg
    Result: colorized-image.jpg

    Where to do it: https://colourise.sg

    Now THIS is top stuff Mr. Colander!

    Some practice with a stock photo of Adolf Galland.

    Aside from the few patches of brown on Adolf's uniform, not too shabby.

    Also, anyone else think that he looks a little like Val Kilmer when he was young or is that just me?



    Quality find there Colander, may have to run some of my Grandad's old photos from c.WWII!

    It works with some pictures, especially if there is some greenery:
    comp_colorized-image5.jpg
    comp_colorized-image3.jpg
    comp_colorized-image2.jpg


    When plants or other contrasts are missing, such as in winter or desert pictures there is almost no effect:
    comp_colorized-image.jpg
    comp_colorized-image4.jpg

    Especially the sky does not get blue as it should.
    I will try out more. Maybe one day there will be an advanced version where you can change clours etc. with sliders.
