The automatic colorization of black and white photos is now possible!

2016-04-01 // photography tech

Colorful Image Colorization is a software capable of automatically color photos in black and white! Designed by Richard Zhang and his team, this software uses a convolutional neural network to understand the image and add realistic colors to the photograph. We have often talked about colorizing black and white pictures (here, here and here), but this is the first time that this complex process is achieved automatically by an algorithm. The Colorful Image Colorization software is now available on GitHub, which will allow you to try the colorization of your old photos by yourself!
