I am faily new but I have been reading for a year or so, But I was asked to do this pic but I dont think I can do much with it I need some Ideas from the pros, So let me know how I should go about this, He wanted me to colorize it, which I did a few of my own and they turned out great but I had a good starting point so what do you think?

I'm not a pro, but since I'm the first member to read your post, I will recommend an excellent tutorial that's familiar most of us here.


I have received much good advice from this forum regarding colorization. I recommend searching the archives, lots of good stuff you will find.

Restore Original Color

Well it looks like this is a color photograph with too much yellow. I opened the photo and used Image Variations in Photoshop and added blue and some magenta.

Its a start, but I believe now you can figure out what color the original clothes were.

I would recommend that you select the couple and separate them from the background in a separate layer so that you can work on each separately.
