Hi, I am curious as to which tool do you find most useful for colorizing an original black and white picture.

 

I have used the paint brush (in colour mode) as well as the color replacement brush. By the way, is there any benefit of using one versus the other?

 

And I have also tried using the Recolor adjustment layer then inverting the layer and painting back in the areas I want to colorize. That is my favorite method so far. Do you know of other effective ways of doing the same thing? Any recommendations or suggestions? Thanks!

Hi @alecspra I've just found out this tutorial with the frequency separation and the paint mixer brush tool

this just does not make sense

 

you can tell in this video that he/she has no clue how to properly operate frequency separation 

 

What are "clumpses", anyway?? :P

I think it is supposed to mean "clumps" or possibly "clumpiness." The voice in the narration is obviously computer generated, which makes it a bit creepy, as if the instructor (for want of a better term) is a machine, possibly a heavy-handed robot, judging by how hard it sounds like the keyboard is being stuck.

Hello all,
Ok so this isn’t a link to another “How To…” tutorial about colourising old photos but I did find this short video very interesting on the subject as a whole: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vubuBrcAwtY

well I found it interesting because it is an alternative to a layered work. He works on a low frequency layer and it seems to be more realistic compared to a traditional method, fairly time saving. Picking up the colors from a color photo is a good suggestion, I tried myself with a picture of Theodore Roosevelt, picking up colors from Robin Williams in "Night at the museum". The result satisfied me and did it in a short time.

@MBd after all alecspra asked for an other method for doing the work an he was satisfied

 

as far as I can see he suggests to use the frequency separation to preserve the details and the traits of the face
