Colorizing Old Photos

Recommended Posts

Still learning by experimenting, but think I'm getting better --- thanks to Ability Photo. I had been using Corel Paint Shop Pro 2018, but it has been cast aside because I can come closer to the results I want. I definitely prefer the workflow with Ability.

I found a site where someone saved a bunch of glass negatives from a photography studio that went back as far as the 1890's (possibly earlier).

Here is the original image and the incomplete colorized image. I wasn't able to complete it today ... separating the sky and the foliage is going to take some extra time. I liked the result I got with the lace on her left side - both around her neck and especially at the cuff of her left arm. It was surprisingly fast and simple.
