Thank you.

Try SERIF PhotoPlus X4. It's a fraction of the cost of Photoshop and just as good in all respects.

Regards,

Richard.

Nice, imi, I'd loved to see the entire movie colorised.
One thing though, you gave the same guy different eye colors in the first two pics.;)

thanks. :)
sometimes the angle of the lights make different colors,I use the same palette every time,in double same things.
I can't colorize the whole film,because I haven't got any software,(and also the copyrights),this is a very big job.

Using Photoshop will yield great results. There are also many tutorials on the web that can lead you step by step through the process. Try http://psd.tutsplus.com/. They have many tutorials.

Hello folks, I was just surfing the internet on this subject, came across this thread, and thought I could add to it.
I use a freeware program called Serif PhotoPlus. You can Google Serif and/or PhotoPlus and find the download. There are two ways to colorize, by adding colored layers, or my preference, use the free-drawing tool to outline each seperate part to be colored, then using the Gamma and Color tools to adjust the color in the part just outlined. There's more, such as blurring, etc, but thats the basic. Below is a link to my Photobucket album... at present I have 190 WWII pics colorized, mostly US Army Air Forces and Navy Aviation, but a few ground pounder things, and a couple of non-US. I would appreciate any feedback on what ya'll think of them.

OK, says I cannot post a link yet ..... will try in another post.

I use Photoshop for all my imaging needs...

Here's the only two military color jobs I've done so far. Neither satisfies me, but I keep tweakin' 'em from time to time to try and make some improvements. I've a long way to go, but am getting there...

Just ignore the terrain in this first one... I really didn't bother to do anything with it because my main focus has been on the bird.

Here's one from my collection... I put a little bit of work into the terrain and trees and suchon this one. Could be better, just takes time and patience.
