Eas­ily colourise black-and-white pics

In your Cover Fea­ture on con­vert­ing and restor­ing old videos, pho­tos and mu­sic (Is­sue 512) you men­tioned colouris­ing black-and-white pho­tos us­ing Al­go­rith­mia’s web­site ( www. snipca.com/25662). How­ever, I found that it didn’t al­ways work. I could have tried re­fin­ing the colour­ing process us­ing Paint.net ( www.get­paint. net), but in­stead I used Colorizephoto ( www. colorizephoto.com/ con­verter). What this lets me do is load the photo to be re­fined in both the main win­dow and in the im­age to be used for the colour­iza­tion (it doesn’t have to be the same picture in each, if you have a bet­ter choice of colours in a dif­fer­ent picture). You can then click your colour of choice on one and use that to paint on the other picture un­til it’s just right. To give you an ex­am­ple here is my Great Un­cle Percy, who was killed in ac­tion in 1917. Peter J Bil­brough
