This does a good job of colorizing photos when it works but it freezes and crashes too often. I tried cleaning and restarting my computer but it still won't work properly.

I wanted to try this, but in the middle of the install, I received a message that there is another install in progress, but there was not any other install in progress. I tried three times. Same things. So, not installed.

Support Colorize Team, me again..
seems to work now but it resizes large photo to very small and the button "fit to screen" does not work properly, it makes the photo actual size instead of fitting it to the screen
also there is a sort of stamp on the bottom of the result, i think because it is no longer registered ??

I now realise why it didn't work n my set up.
All my B&W pictures have more pixels than it can work with even though they are are only between 1 and 2 mg in size. You have to reduce the quality and size of the pictures in something like Paint Shop Pro before they will be accepted. However since it uploads the pictures to the web site, and you can that directly anyway, can't really see the point of it.
But at least I now know why it failed (Or 'Filed' as the program says!)

Mark P, hi, dear. The file size will not impact the colorization but you should keep the dimensions of the picture under 3000*3000. Regards!

For some pictures it does a wonderful job. For some pictures it colorizes the photo but the colors are not "exactly right" but still interesting and useful.
For those who experienced it quitting at 75%, the picture image could be too large in pixel dimensions. I fed it an image of something like 6000x4000 and it choked. So I resized it down to something like 2000x1500 and that worked well.
For an interesting test, feed it a real color photo. It seems that, this is my guess, it first strips off the color (it brings color saturation down to zero) then it colorizes it its normal way. Comparing the two images you can get some idea what it does and how well it does. And, doing this can give a new look to some of your favorite real color photos.
This is a KEEPER!!!!!!!!!!!!
Thank you, Imagecolorizer.com and GOTD!!!!!!!!

J, exactly right would be impossible, the program does not know what color for instance the clothes should be or the color of a car, it can only guess
there is no way it can figure out the actual color

Those image fails to change when the sliders are used so they cannot be evaluated in real time. I tried colourizing 4 monochrome photos. The colour improvements were imperceptible to negligible.
I reckon it is useless.

Reply   |   Comment by Michael  –  Last month  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+7)

Michael, you should click the "Colorize!" to first and then use these sliders. The functions on the right zone are used to improve the colorized photos. The main colorization process is based on our server currently.

While this program does have a tendency to colour everything with a shade of "flesh pink" it also has moments of brilliance. One old B&W screen capture I fed it had a face, legs, clothing, trees and a bit of wooden furniture. "this will get it" I thought.

To my surprise it had a good stab at making the skin look fleshy, the trees green and the furniture a slightly hesitant brown. So - quite a lot of near misses mixed with occasionally startlingly good results.

There are some glaring faults with the program, but nothing so far that is very bothersome. It's a pity they don't want feedback to improve the program.

Very easy download and registration. The first picture I tried got stuck at about 75% so I aborted it. Following that the pictures all colourized so I went back and tried the first one again and it worked just fine.

Don't expect the colourized pictures to look like something you've taken recently with a modern camera They look like colour pictures from a bygone era but I think that is the charm here - they still look like old pictures and I'm quite happy with that.

Downloaded onto my Windows 10 machine, installed and registered it.
Tried my first picture and it gave an error message saying "Filed to upload picture, please try again later" which I assume it means 'failed to upload'.
Tried another and got exactly the same message. Both were black & white pictures of my late parents and around 1.6mb so well within the limits it states.
I tried once more with the exactly the same effect.
Now uninstalled as for me it just doesn't work.

My results are more or less in line with what others reported, namely:

Installation, registration and use are as simple as they get.

Results can vary. In my case, Windows 10:
the first picture got stuck ¾ of the way
the following 3 worked, with acceptable though not outstanding coloration.

Trying again one of the three that worked, but this time adding Denoise, caused it to take a long time, not justified by the poor results.

Though I got no crash as such, the process getting stuck is not better, as it could keep you waiting in vain.

Clearly, the program needs more development. I would never buy it, and having got it free, I still hesitate whether to keep it.

Sorry. The name of the toolbar button is "Register" It sits at the top right side in between the "Options" & "About" buttons. After registration is complete, the "Register" button remains. If you click it again, it says it's registered.

Aaahhhh - I can answer my own question. The trick is patience in waiting for processing to complete, plus use of sliders. I suspect I would use this to get a base level colour image, & then twiddle in Photoshop. I have now seen impressive results, so well pleased.

This software seems similar to the ones offered by other online folks such as ColoriseSG with same formula: upload any b&w foto and it will return to you in a few seconds their version of the foto in color, where you would just download it and enhance on your own.
The site recently has changed and doesn't seem to do it anymore; it was based in Singapore, I believe.
This offering here on GotD seems to have problems with the big dl you have to put into your pc...why? simply to get info on your pc. Any pic can be sent off to some site for coloring but I thought THIS OFFERING was a do-it-yourself thing.

I wonder, for those who say it crashes, have stand alone graphics cards. Many times processing photos demands a lot of resources and built in graphics, or even some of the less expensive cards cannot handle the processing and will crash. Of course, it would help if the manufacturer of this software would state the needs of it's product.

UPDATE.......The program doesn't work. I installed it on a rather powerful computer - one in which I do a lot of photographic work, and the program locked up. Tried again, and the same happened. (Just for info: I'm running a 6gb Gpu graphics card, 32 gb ram, and an I7 processor)

Reply   |   Comment by Hott  –  Last month  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+21)

Hott, My understanding is that the photo is uploaded to the server where the processing is done and download back to you. This process does not sound like it will put a strain on you local graphics card. Sound like bad code.

I've never tried this software. I'd like to try it out. Since I'm a old, I have a lot of family photos, some going back a hundred years. One of them is my dad in WWII in his Army dress uniform. It was tinted years ago, but it has faded over time. (For the youngsters out there, to get a color photo back then, you would have an artist hand tint in water colors and the reason they faded, on to a blk. & wht. image. Today with a few clicks and your done.) Sorry, I didn't mean to give a history lesson! Thanks to GOTD and ImageColorizer for the great offer.

Jim C, my sister was a photo color-tinter in the 1950s, and she used oil paints. Since photographs and prints back then were gelatin-based emulsions on film and paper, I doubt they could have used water-color paints.

"try Adobe Photoshop Elements 2021"

A bit of explanation... Photoshop Elements apparently includes what Adobe calls neural filters that use their Sensei AI. This is something that just debuted in regular Photoshop, includes just a few beta filters so far, and one of them is Colorize for B & W photos. It does work, but the controls are not intuitive -- just have to play with it -- and the results using the beta are a bit bland [similar to the photos on the Picture Colorizer Pro product site]. That said, it's cool to be able to colorize a B & W photo without having to do all the work manually -- it's easier to do it digitally compared to what Frank's sister used to do with negatives, but it's still time consuming.

@Jim.C:

I did a lot of coloring prints up into the '80s and also worked with other artists. We used transparent watercolors. I have not encountered anyone that used oil paints. I still have some of the Dr. Ph. Martin's - Synchromatic Transparent Watercolors, which are still available on big-name shopping sites and many other art supply sites.

Guys- I’m kind of lost.

The description says- the picture will be uploaded to their server for colorization.

So what the 112 MB installer is doing then? Sounds like a huge “uploader” or so...

Just curious before to test the program. Thanks.

Reply   |   Comment by Pazlamiaga  –  Last month  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+30)

Pazlamiaga, The software itself has some basic editing, such as hue/saturation/value, noise reduction, and (if you can get it to work) inpaint for scratch etc removal. It only uploads to their server for the actual colourising.

112mb still seems a bit large, I'd agree, but there is more to the software than simply an uploader.

Reply   |   Comment by DawkinsDog  –  Last month  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+10)

Pazlamiaga, Hi, 112MB is strange and it should not be such a big folder. It should only have 76.2 after installation. Or you can go to our website to download the latest version 2.3.

This one has, so far, impressed me with the colouring. I had a phone app that colourised photos but the results here are definitely more accurate and convincing.

That said, it's not without issues; trying to use the inpaint feature caused an error saying a component failed to load, and the denoise option tended to corrupt the image unless you played about a lot with the sliders.

However, the main feature of colourising works very well in my short experience. If I can't get the inpaint and denoise features to work it's not a big deal as I can drop result into another program for that, though it would obviously be better to have it all working (and may be down to my somewhat underpowered laptop). Definitely one I'll keep on the system for the odd occasion I need it.

DawkinsDog, Got the inpaint to work. Go to folder C:\Program Files (x86)\PictureColorizer\PictureColorizer. Open folder and create a shortcut to {ImageColorizer_Win.exe}. The installation program shortcut goes to the same file but in the first PictureColorizer instead of the second PictureColorizer folder. Yes there are two one within the other. I deleted everything in the first folder except PictureColorizer folder. Also replace shortcut in the start menu with the new one. You will also have to reregister the program. Hope this helps.

DawkinsDog, thanks for your advice. I will check the denoise issue. For the InPaint, please check if you have x86 or x64 folder in the installation folder of Picture Colorizer. If the problem still exits, please drop an email to support@imagecolorizer.com

Joe, thanks for all your work digging into this - never could have done it myself!! Followed your steps (had to use another tool because I didn't know how to replace the shortcut in the start menu) and it worked perfectly! Thanks again.

Have tried a few different photos with this app and each one gets half way down the picture with good results then the other half is just a pile of dots.

It's slow and you can only do one photo at a time... if you have hundreds of black and white photos, it would take forever to colorize all of them... I have an app for my iPhone that is much faster in colorizing.

wynford,

Quantity or Quality - You choose
You dont often get both.

Personally I would prefer to do one at a time as all my photos are different and it would be impossible to get good results from a one-size-fits-all approach.

wynford, if you have multiple photos, you can try our website Colorize! Online

If you go to their web site you can upload your photos directly up to 5MB and they work rather good. Some better than others. Hope this helps

Joe Oliveri, our website also provides colorization services but the program will have more features to improve the quality or customize the old photos by using in-built InPaint features or Brush.

I grabbed this one and did a quick test. Works great. It was easy to install and register. Win-win.

Just occasionally a bit of software turns up that gives me cause to say 'W'OW' and here it is.

Registration was as easy as it gets but once past that it just gets better.

Most of us have B&W (mono) photos stored on our systems and I have far more than most. I just loaded in a local view from 1910 and it now looks like it was taken in the 50's. it has brought colour in where there was none - and pretty accurately too.

Learning curve? Not really as its pretty straightforward. I am just looking forward to finding what limitations there are, if any. Also, there are a couple of colouriser sites online and they are good but this is definitely better.

Thanks imagecolorizer & Gaotd.

This one is def a keeper.

I gave this program a thumbs up because I really wanted to like it. If I was inclined to be consternated by frequent program crashes I would have not been so generous. It never brought down the computer or any other program and so c'est la vie.

Downloaded, installed, and registered with no problem. The first photo I put into the program was a family picture circa 1950. After chugging for a bit the photo was returned in color. Obviously colorized, but easily adjusted with the controls to the right of the main window. The result is like a 1950 Kodacolor print. So far so good.

Then I chose a circa 1898 photograph of my grandfather standing in front of his town band. They were all posed on a residential street. Things didn’t go so well. The first time through only the top quarter of the photo was returned. Sky and foliage, nice, but I wanted to see granddad and see what color the uniforms might be. So I tried again. This time more of the photo came back followed by an immediate program crash. Actually better than a crash – it just disappeared. I’m persistent. I tried a third time and it crashed right off. Figuring that the 5Mb+ was too big I downsized the photo to under 1Mb. This time it went through the process and rendered a complete photo. Huh? Black and white uniforms? Yeah, that could be and they looked Victorian nice. On the other hand, the town flag was rendered gray which I doubt. I started tinkering with the controls to the right and, you guessed it, crash! One more try and I was this time able to do some adjustments and now have a respectable colorized photograph of Granddad and his band.

One final picture. This was a circa 1952 family photograph. This time 6yo me was wearing a favorite plaid shirt that I remember to this day. The photo rendered and the shirt coloring was in the ballpark. I did some more tinkering and had a good Kodacolor.

I recommend this program to those who don’t mind rolling up their sleeves. Those of you who want everything cut and diced – perhaps this isn’t for you.

Christian Tucker, if you think a program like this can determine the color of the uniform i have to disappoint you, it can only guess the color.... nowhere in a real grayscale photo there is any information of the actual colors

Christian Tucker, I feel so sorry about this problem, and thank you so much for your positive feedback. Would you please send me the image that causes the program crash? I will check from my side and see if we can improve the services. Looking forward to hearing back from you. Drop me an email to support@imagecolorizer.com

Tried more than 20 old black and white photos and only one worked and did a good job. The others failed or the program shut down or came back with an error saying that File Failed To Upload Please Try Again Later. Also, I did try different file formats (Jpg, Jeg ETC.) and had no success.

Joe Oliveri, Hi, dear. I feel so sorry about this problem. I have just tried the program and it is working fine. Would you please send me a sample photo so I can have a try from my side? Or you can go to our website https://imagecolorizer.com to have a try.

This has to be the easiest registration process EVER! Just copy the given code into the "register" box of the program and it's done. As to the program itself, I'm curious about how I'll be using it, since I appreciate the fineness of black + white photography; however, I've found that there are SOME snapshots can benefit from colorizing without losing their artfulness. I'm going to try it on some old family photos, landscapes, and scenes of daily life, then compare them with and without the new effect.

M. Aronson,

Please tell me where/how you found "the registration box" and also what platform you are using (i.e. Mac or Windows)

Reply   |   Comment by Chuck Brotman  –  Last month  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+1)

M. Aronson, I agree. Easiest registration I've ever done. Just opened the Read.me file and followed instructions with app open. You can't miss the "Registration" button on top right. Clicked button and pasted the code into the popup registration window. Got feedback that program was registered. Done! So easy even a caveman can do it. :P

I did comment above about some things I would like to see in the software. Their feedback runs you through too much to make it nice, easy and quick. That could be better and easier to give feedback from GAOTD.
