Colouring Valentine Walls Wigan/Hindley 1883 - 1959 anyone?
« on: Sunday 16 December 18 16:21 GMT (UK) »
Hi folks

I am interested in the actual process of colourisation but not an expert in this unfortunately, but I guess this photo was taken at a special occasion so the colouring of suits and flowers would be straightforward guess work rather than a random photo

Hope someone can have a crack at this

Also interested in what package/process would be best to use for colourisation if anyone wants to share their technique

Apologies for the quality of the photo it's the best one out there on the internet unfortunately but I have increased the size the best I could

Hi Carol, I have already had the discussion with the moderator (Sarah), permission exists and no copyright has been breached.

Apologies for not clarifying this in the initial post

Here's one I did earlier and have been waiting to post. I use a very old version of Photoshop, I wouldn't think this is available now.

I'm bat-eyed when it comes to colours so can't help with that discussion except to say that any of the many software programs that restorers use for their work would be suitable for colourising. I think several people on here use different versions of Photoshop or Photoshop Elements and Gimp (a free but very powerful app). Just a word of caution with Gimp. Its interface is not as easy to get used to as some of the others - but those who use it swear by it. There are plenty of review sites comparing the different programs, but really it's like being a carpenter: it's not the brand of tools but how well you learn to use them.

Anyway, here's my try.

Strange as it may seem I still use paint shop pro 9 for most of the time even though I have elements and photoshop CS. I think it was made by JASC before Corel took over.

Thanks for that Peter, a good interpretation. It's always a guess work with colourisation and always open to opinion.

By the way, I was always under the impression that Gimp was a Linux thing? Is it available in Windows as well?

Gimp is available across all platforms, Prouty. I downloaded it to my Macbook but rarely use it because I find Elements much easier to use - but that's just me.
