Becoming colourful

by John Travers

This is a modest practical contri­bu­tion, that popped up in my email yesterday. The website MyHeritage which hosts a gigantic collec­tion of family trees recently offered members a tool to colorize (US spelling!) photos. So I gave it a go, and it is very impressive. The photos below show the effect: my paren’t wedding in 1933.

Generally the colour is very realistic. The news yesterday was that MyHeritage is making this service available free for an unlimited number of photos. So, if you have time on your hands and black and white photos, you can go to myheritage.com join up and give it a try. You might also be inspired to create an online family tree.
