color black and white photograph

I see Akvis and black magic have colorizing programs. Prices are a little steep. Anyone have a software that has good results? Would even like
to hear about these if they are what they advertise

Re: color black and white photograph

Myself I don't use colorizing programs, there are many ways to colorize a photograph. I use masks and curves adjustments to colorize, you can also use brushes and pick different colors set blending mode to color or softlight, I have found these two modes work the best for most cases. You can also use gradient maps with masks to colorize. Myself i like doing things the old fashion way.
