Hello,

just wondered if anybody had any experience of using colourising (colorizing) programmes (programs).

I have a number of old photographs I would like to convert.

Try using Photoshop or Photoshop Elements.

I have PSP 2019 ULT but can't find anywhere to colourise a black/white picture other than the 'colour changer' option.

Am I looking in the wrong place?

To colourise B/W you need some sort of an AI module, does PSP got one?

This from Corel Discovery

This seems rather complicated (for me anyway) but I will give it a go in the next few days.
Thanks.

Managed to get some time free and tried out the tutorial mentioned by Robert.
Yes, it works fine but is very time consuming and needs a steady hand.
I was rather looking for a quicker solution and tried the link provided by Asik1. This also works fine and in a just a few seconds but the colours are a little vague.
I have downloaded a few 'trial' programmes and find that there are some that work very quickly, then give you the option to adjust/change colours.
Thanks to all for your input.
Work in progress.

Hi John
Did you consider posting to the PaintShop Pro forums as it does appear you are working with still images.
The guys there may have more ideas

Hello Trevor,

O/K will do.

I am using the still images in VS as part of a project but I will post in PSP as you suggest.
Thanks.
