MyHeritage is an application that allows you to colourise black and white pictures in one click. The app is available for Android as well as iOS devices. You get a simple way to colourise old photographs of your family tree and save them to the MyHeritage server where they will stay preserved.
Who would like to colourise a black and white photograph and why?
A coloured photograph is truer to life as compared to a black and white one. A colour picture helps us more effectively relate to the past events. Thus, anyone interested in giving a modern touch to a black and white picture and wishes to permanently save them on the MyHeritage servers can use the app.
To colourise a black and white photograph using the MyHeritage app, follow these steps.
Step 1: Select the black and white photo that you want to colour
The Photos section allows you to select pictures from the smartphone’s storage. The selected black and white photos will be sent to the ‘Album’ of the application.
Step 2: Colouring the black and white photograph
As soon as you select the desired black and white photograph, it will be sent to the canvas to edit. Here you can see features to enhance your photograph. Click the colourful circular icon located at the top of the screen. This will appropriately colourise the black and white picture with a balanced hue and saturation.
Step 3: Compare with the previous version
The app comes with a slider bar that you can drag horizontally to compare the colourised picture with the old one. This will help you get an idea of the hue and saturation aspects.
Step 4: More options
You get features to tag the photo and save the coloured and the black and white pictures to the library. It should be noted that if you decide to delete the black and white version, the coloured photograph is also erased.
How much colourising the black and white pictures using the MyHeritage app costs?
You can colourise as many black and white pictures as you want free of cost. However, the colourised photographs will have a watermark of the MyHeritage logo located on the bottom right. To get rid of the watermark, you will need to upgrade your account. There are four kinds of plans, namely, ‘Premium’ ($79/year), ‘PremiumPlus'($129/year), ‘Data'($129/year), and ‘Complete'($189/year). With the ‘Complete’ subscription, you can colourise an unlimited number of photos without any watermark.
