Sure it can be colorized. But first the black and white needs to be fixed. It has a lot of texture in it that needs to be removed. This is a common problem and has been discussed frequently on this forum. However perhaps you should post the maximum size this site allows. For info on that click http://www.retouchpro.com/forums/ima...ads-posts.html

Hi Phil
Thanks for the info, I'm a little over whelmed with all the information I'm clueless as to a lot of the information your suggestion on changing from Jpeg to Tiff I tried that but I think it has made the photo to big and it seem more blurred
