  • Surprised Me Jul 16, 2019

    By Tom Gibson
    I didn’t really expect much, but it really works (most of the time). Since I didn’t have any b&w photos, I downloaded some from the web. It seems to struggle when there are multiple people in different lighting. It seems to know patterns and is able to color based on those patterns such as bricks or wood. It was unable to colorize the U.S. flag, however. I had a color picture of a Buckingham Palace guard that I turned b&w and ran through the app. It knew the coat was supposed to be red. Overall, this app is very good at what it does. I’m hoping there will continue to be improvements.

    Very impressed. Seems to work well on portraits. I used it on a portrait photo of my mum and the result just blew my mind. The app had even selected the correct hair colouring. On the down side it seemed to struggle with outdoor photos will several people in them. I think if there is a lot going on in the photo, the app struggles to get a good result (hence the 4 stars) but apart from that I'm pleased.

  • A Great Start for a Great Tool Jun 19, 2019

    I appreciate and am grateful for what the app does, many thanks to the developers for this program. It's fun turning black and white photos into color photos. Still, when the render process happens I noticed that it leaves spots of the photos I'm using untouched with color. A majority of the photo will be colorized very well and it's quite remarkable I think how well and seemingly magically this app performs this function. But, in pretty much every photo I've uploaded and imported. The render process will always leave spots of the photo I'm using untouched and those spots remain black and white or sepia or whatever else the original tint was in the source. I haven't tried taking a scan of a black and white photo to colorize yet, so the app may provide better results using it that way. Overall, though, I'm happy and grateful for such a nice, free application, thank you. Maybe with some updates to the program that I'm sure will follow. The developers could hone the process some more so that the render and transformation process doesn't leave any spots of imported photos untouched please. Thanks if you'll look into this issue. Also, thank you again for this wonderful free tool and if you'll consider looking into refining and improving the colorization process and God bless.

    WOW I don't believe people realize how hard this is to do, especially for an AI. The photos and color quality were astonishing! I got with my mother, and transformed a bunch of her photos from when she was a child, and she's never seen a picture of her dad in color. (He passed away when she was 7. She's 58 now. ) It made my mother so happy, and that makes me happy. 5 STARS!

    I was blown away guys. One flaw I ran into was it took a picture I imported and turned it on its side. When it tried to colorize it, it failed, basically a new shade of black and white. I then opened the photo up that was colorized poorly and rotated it back upright. Then the app made a few changes and provided me with a colorful photo. I'm very impressed.

    It has a problem with blues and browns and TBH unless your a professional photo restorer it's a app that is a 5 minute life span and for £25 a year it's not worth it. You can get free apps that do the same without having to spend £25 to save a image with poor results.

    Ok, so I compared 2 apps using same photo and this one fell very short from the other, colour restore is mainly in the green spectrum and the cropping is far too much. Also could not get it to import from Google photos via the app. I have uninstalled and use colorize images instead

    Advertised on Facebook without stating there was a 3 day trial and £22 / year subscription. Tried it anyway and the app failed. Looks like a scam counting in people not cancelling their subscriptions. Avoid.

    Wish you could see the result of the app’s introductory colorization. I gave it a crisp black and white portrait, and it returned the same image with just a splash of skin tone color from one eye, across the bridge of the nose, to the other eye. Roughly 90% of the image remained black and white (and remember the photo is all head and top of the shoulders, very little background around the edges. A very close up selfie if you will). And there isn’t any way to give the app “hints” of what areas are skin, hair, cloth, etc. No way to adjust the app’s colorization. I’m sorry Photomyne, but buyers move along, nothing to see here.

    Ultra simple to use. Excellent results. Obviously the app can not know what colour the original was in cases such as clothes or a car, for example. Some editing may therefore be required. But skin colour is usually excellent and trees, sky etc. I love B&W photos, but the application of colour can bring old photos to life and in particular bring to life people in very old photos, who can otherwise seem very remote.

  • Love it Jul 28, 2020

    By Latin Film Fan
    I was impressed by this app. It takes seconds to colorize a black and white photograph and does a great job most of the time. There are some instances where it doesn’t color all of the skin on a picture and sometimes there is a bit of a rainbow pattern on some of the clothing (especially if the clothing was originally red). Regardless of the occasional issues, which will hopefully be fixed with more updates, the app really is amazing with what it can do. The result can be jaw dropping. I also tried it out on old pictures which were originally color photographs but had aged so that badly I was unable to fix the colors- I simply made them black and white and ran them through the app and they looked a hundred times better. I would highly recommend this app to anyone who is interested.

  • Here’s a few tips to the developer. Jan 2, 2020

    By Ronsterbot
    Naturally the software used is infantile, but it is quite amazing. It record images with a great recollection for colors-sometimes. Skin tones are amazing but don’t always cover the entire body. Sometimes the face will be perfect but the chest or arms and hands won’t be colored. Other times the clothes are passed over entirely. I’m sure as time goes on the recoloring will better, but for now it is an amazing tool. Hopefully someday you will be able to totally recolor an image with a fair degree of accuracy. Also another small thing, when uploading, you should be allowed to choose what album you want to search through. Scrolling through my moments for a specific date is quite a pain. Other than that, great app!

  • 80% awesome Oct 1, 2019

    By ibanezadam
    So I’ve just started using the app and honestly the pictures look pretty awesome. My 2 main issues so far are.... 1. The slider doesn’t go all the way across the photo. So there’s always a strip of B/W down the right side of every photo. I don’t need a slider at all, and it just seems to be getting in the way. 2. I have no control over the cropping, so for the problem above I would just shrink the photo slightly to make sure the colorizing goes all the way across, but I can’t, so I don’t. The lack of these basics options are frustrating. Pictures look great for the parts that get covered! Hopefully that’ll be fixed soon or I’ll figure out a way around it.

    It produces some interesting results, even if often not always the most convincing, but portraits seem to work quite well. EDIT Having tried several other apps, this easily gives the best colour. One tweak could be allowing you to adjust the cropping. This is the only app that needs to crop images, but not always ideally.

  • Fun enough Aug 12, 2020

    By Brocchus
    If you have a lot of B&W photos and some patience this app will hit a home run about 1 in 10 times. Is that worth the monthly fee? Depends on the user. Most of the time clothing converts to some shade of gray often with annoying red tints and patches. Hands, feet, and ears frequently stay their original shade giving them the appearance of dead limbs. Objects of obvious color such as flowers inevitably convert to grayish or brownish colors. If your originals are out of focus you are probably out of luck. And the auto-crop sometimes takes off the top of a head or mutilates group photos. I know it’s just an app, but if these issues could be corrected or if colors could be manually attached to objects, this app would rock. As it is, for me anyway, for now I will hang around for those home runs. Ciao.

  • Scan or upload? Can’t search albums? Dec 31, 2019

    By R.L. Moss
    Maybe I’m missing something. Why can’t I choose a pic from an album that I already scanned years ago? The option I’m given is scan or upload. After that I’m able to choose from the “moments” folder. How do I choose any other folder? Either I missed it or the developers did. I’m guessing me. Hopefully it’s me but I’m not seeing any other options in this app to choose albums! I get that the algorithms can not be exact. I’m not reviewing that part (though there should be a way to fine tune what the software isn’t picking up).

  • Good app but buggy Mar 17, 2020

    By sara_stovall
    This app is awesome, but I had an issue with crashes. I just downloaded it and it was working well until I tried uploading a third photo. It crashed 3 times consecutively when I tried to colorize the photo, then told me I had used up my free shares and editing. Conceptually, it’s awesome. The first two photos I attempted were very well edited. I just wish the bug hadn’t happened so I could see the full range of colorization of my old family photos.
