Colored History – Colorization of historical photos
Old Photo Colorization
Historical images are best described as grungy, black and white photos. Looking through old photos will make some people appreciate and feel the essence of history but on the other side, some people seem to be having a hard time to relate with old photos as they do with a photo that is in colored.
Have you ever wonder what happens when those old black and white photos were colorized? Todays technology is so advance that would enable us, to enhance and colorize historical photos. This would give us a chance to see the colors of history.
Seeing historical photos in colored takes away the impression that the images were captured in another time.
Below are some of the historical photos that have been colorized and a peek of insight from vox by Coleman Lowndes discussing the information behind colorization of old photos.
“Photo colorization isn’t just coloring within the lines — it requires meticulous research to make sure that every detail is historically accurate. That means digging through sources like diaries, government records, old advertisements, and even consulting historical experts to get the colors right.”
