About Black & White Colourising

Ever wished you could see your favourite old black & white photo in colour? Wish no longer as this can be achieved with my colourising service.

To colourise a black & white photo is a digital process of building up colour tones. It really brings the photos to life! The outcome is very rewarding as it shows moments in history that have never been seen in colour (except by those who were actually there).

Simply bring the photo to me or email me a high resolution scan (600 dpi, saved as uncompressed JPG), provide me with colour references (hair colour, eye colour etc) and I will do the rest!
