  • Colorization

    Hi folks
    I haven't seen anything new on colorization for a while, so I thought I'd post an example of my own and see if anyone would like to comment on it.

    Re: Colorization

    Hi, Ed. Welcome to Retouch Pro. Well from your photo, it's hard to tell just what you colorized without seeing the "before" version.

      Hi Swampy
      Thanks for that. If it's hard to tell which bits, I guess that's a good sign! Especially as I colorized all of it. From greyscale. I'd put the 'before' on, but it looks pretty much like the 'after' desaturated so it wouldn't be much help.

        Re: Colorization

        Well, in that case, Ed, that is a wonderful job. Colors are very crisp and clean. Excellent job.

          I agree with Swamp...it would be nice to see what you had in the first place to see the difference. I've seen some photographers to get such color with just camera and light. I assume from your note that you retouched this photo..if so, what exactly did you do. Posting is nice, but the majority on this site would also like to know how you got there..thanks

            Hi skydog
            Thanks for your interest. Here's another colorization, and I'll post the 'before' in a minute.
            I did this in twenty minutes, with the monitor set to monochrome for the first fifteen.
            I use a new technique, of my own invention, and I will be more than happy to share it, but I'd like to get a bit of feedback on some examples first so that I get it as good as possible before I burden Photoshoppers with yet another weird colorization method!

                    Re: Colorization

                    Now I understand...originally I thought you had color and just made the color better...I'd also like to know how you did this...

                      Re: Colorization

                      Here is my version, I tried to duplicate what you did and I think I got pretty close. All except where the hairline and the face meet, as you can see.

                      I could have spent more time at it, but I thought perhaps you have a special method for that part? I'd be curious to know, and appreciate your sharing it.
