converting black and white to colour

Discussion in 'Photography' started by Alexander Baron, Jan 2, 2004.

  1. I have some old photographs taken in the early 60s in black and white.
    Does anyone know how I go about converting these to colour and if this
    process is any good? Thanks.

    As far as converting to color from b&w, I know of no way to do so
    since the program has no way of knowing what the original colors were
    but you can use a paint program and color the photos yourself..

  3. Which is how color photos were once made. I have a family picture from the
    early 1930's that was hand-colored by an artist, probably using water
    colors. The original colors are faded, but I've scanned the photo, and
    there was enough color left for image editing software (Paint Shop Pro) to
    restore the colors nicely.
