  • 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.

    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.

    for an app that colorizes black and white photos *automatically*, it does a surprisingly good job. of course, it isn't always perfect; it misses spots here and there. but again, it's great considering it does this automatically and on your phone. if you're looking for perfection or the colors aren't as you expected, the alternative would have to be photoshop or some similar desktop software. but for a free service that does it automatically from your phone? this is a really good one.
  • 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!

    Probably one of the best colorization apps out there, obviously not always right but I've had some good results. However, I wish it wouldn't crop my photos automatically and refuse to open larger files. I usually have to resort to taking a screenshot of the photo I want, colorizing that, and then combining them in photoshop. Not ideal. Same with the cropping. I wish it would take the photo as is rather than cropping part of someone's head/hair off.
  • 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.

    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.

    This is a great app! It colorizes old black and white photos really well. The photos look like they were colorized by a professional. As an African American, I was skeptical at first if the photo colorization used in this app would turn out well for my old family photos. But I quickly realized that it doesn't matter what color the skin is of the person in the photo...this app will recreate the colorization just right. Best app I've downloaded in a long time
  • 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.

    I’m doing a painting of my grandfather who died when my dad was young, so I never got to meet him. My reference was a black and white picture taken of him during the 40s and since I’m doing this as a surprise for my dad, I can’t really ask him what color his hair was or what shade his eyes were. So I thought I would just have to go with what I picture in my head. When I saw this app I didn’t expect much but I tried it on the reference picture and it was so real looking. This is certainly gonna help a lot with finishing the painting. Definitely would give this app a try!

    It just didn't work as advertised for me. I have had tin-type photos made which I wanted to try to colorize. The photos only partially colorized, and aside from skin tones, the colors were way off. Great idea, but poor end result. I would love to see this attempted again with better technology.
  • Half Way There Sep 11, 2019

    One out of nine images you process will be useable. The ones that are keepers are amazing. The artificial intelligence is mind blowing. But there’s always a hand that gets missed, while the rest of the fleshy parts are great. It’s understandable that body parts get missed Unforgivable, however, is the fact that there is no way to go back and fix whatever the algorithm missed. You can’t expect perfection from a machine. So I have to go off and find some other program to use for cleaning up the mess. Programs like Hair Color add similar tints, but the color picker doesn’t allow you to pick up colors from the image itself. The lack of frisket masks makes Hair Color worse than tinting a photo with Marshall’s oil tints on a photographic print. I’ve tried literally dozens of beautify programs to enhance the output of this software. It works great. Sometimes. The whole process is just too unpredictable. Why must developers see this as an either/or proposition???? Either machine intelligence OR human driven interface!!!! That’s completely nuts!!! Let the machine try very hard to get the job done. THEN let the human step in and clean things up. _______________________________________________ **Update** Since posting this review, all save options have disappeared. As if one out of nine photos wasn’t bad enough, now I get none out of every none.

    It does give the pictures colour but not always the right ones. I had pictures that were black and white but I also had the actual photo with colour so I wanted to see a real it was, turns out the app was really off and it didn't even give colour to the whole picture. I did this a few times but same thing kept happening. I mean only the skin tone was correct but the rest wasn't. Half of the picture was still left grey, and some others, but it does work on some spots of the picture.

    Works quite well, sometimes very well, but sometimes it's a bit of a mess. The biggest problem is the heavy cost which isn't even a one off payment but a yearly subscription. It's massively too expensive. I could stomach a one off payment, maybe, but this is just not worth the money.

    Disappointed. When colourizing a photo it leaves part of it on black and white. It was OK when I used the free trial. Ideally I would like my money back.

    By Jacob Craig
    I shoot a lot on film and occasionally dabble in Black and White photography, the app works fairly well however I have found that it struggles with some colours, I had a landscape turn blue rather than green, however the camera that I use gives some distortion to the photo, so that may be the cause. Over all a very good app tho (4 stars) Edit: 2 stars, app forces you to pay for premium so scan more than 6 photos even if you clear the photos you have, very disappointing when testing the app.

    By Joe Nix
    This app has flaws. Just as the trial period ended and the subscription kicked in and the app stopped working. The album created during the trial period has vanished. I have requested an immediate refund. I have experienced problems with refunds from ill-fated Google Play purchases. Exercise caution.
  • Laughable Sep 12, 2019

    By Eric Hendrix
    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.

    Does an awesome job colorizing most photos. I have noticed that when photos are faded because of fixer that when the photos are fixed and the gray taken away some of the colors taken away too. This would be very hard to come around though.

    So I love learning bout the HISTORY I LOVE IT!! And I was going to images and Wikipedia for WW2 but then I’m like...wait what color are their uniforms and their tanks and stuff and other old pictures I found and surprisingly IT WORKED but I thought there was blood in the picture but then in every picture had blood so I’m like...this is not the picture, it’s the app... so I don’t know if you could fix that or if it’s just normal buttttt......THX FOR THIS APP!!!

    Very impressed with this app. Most of the time the colors are very good. It does tend to discolor the picture in the shadow areas, especially the skin. Otherwise it does a very good job. I haven't tried to print any of the colorized pics yet.

    Amazing app, of course there is always room for improvement, but if you have a good photo and get it right, the pictures can come out amazing. Very impressed, only criticism/ way to improve is, work on olive drab for military photos. My grandfather's army uniform looks like airforce blues
  • Fantastic! Jul 25, 2019

    By Macgeekgrl
    I downloaded this app on a lark, just to see what it can do. I’ve been researching my family tree so I have a lot of black and white pics to test it on. I’m really surprised by the results! A few pics didn’t turn out very well but they were poor quality to start with. The others have turned out so well, and it’s amazing to see these long lost relatives in color for the first time. I’m so happy with the results!
  • I’m amazed- Oct 19, 2020

    By Slouchy (Sam)
    Coming from a 16 year old, this is absolutely mind blowing. I took three pictures of a group and they all came back with color and no errors. Even when five people were in one picture it was capable of gathering colors. I cant wait to use this on old photos, especially my grandfather who I have never met before, therefore this is an amazing app that should keep going and to give it a shot.

    Brilliant Colouring app, has been amazing bringing photos of ansetors to life. Struggled with the auto cropping to begin with however after contacting support they explained you can change the cropping post colourising. Just select the photo and click crop and then stretch the cropping over more of the pic.

  • Needs more consistency Sep 17, 2019

    By egbdf93
    The only thing keeping me from purchasing this app is the inconsistency it has with coloring. I’m not expecting complete transformations but one photo it will do really well and the next is blotchy or missing most everything. I even tried to finish some in Photoshop but that’s even worse. Don’t know if it gets better if you purchase...$40 is a lot for something not that dependable. Have to say it is the best one out there right now just too expensive for only doing half the job half the time. I’ll keep checking on improvements!
  • Brought My Pics Back to Life Dec 22, 2020

    By 6Klub
    I love this freakin’ app. It does exactly what I wanted it to do. No, it’s not 100% (some spots on my photos are discolored, uncolored, or miscolored) but it is perfect for bringing life back into my photos, which is invaluable to me as a family researcher and historian. I’m using it to colorize photos from my family tree on Ancestry and it’s already helping my photos there to pop and speak out. I was paying a girl about $5-$10 per photo to colorize and restore on Fiverr. Now I van colorize as many photos as I want for less than $6/month (yes, I sprang for the paid version). Every now and then, an app comes along that’s worth the extra coin. And to think, I found out about it through one of those IG ads that pop up in the middle of your Story feed. If they figure out how to incorporate photo restoration, I might just be an annual subscriber.
  • Surprisingly good May 6, 2021

    By AjBurnhanl
    I’m giving them the benefit of the doubt in 2/3 trials. I took 3 photos, 2 i used the built in photo editor of Apple, the third I ram through photoshop. The first 2 didn’t work, and that’s there the benefit comes in, but the third was surprisingly accurate. It got the blue of the walls pretty close, and the black of the shirt was a bit redder than black, but still close. The 4 colors were pastel, but definitely there. Overall, this is a really cool concept and I’m glad I tried it out. Will be keeping.

    I gave four stars as i think for an AI app that takes seconds not days like i usaully take with a (well known photo editing program) i frequently use 😉 to acheive the same effect .. This helps me heaps ..its not perfect but it certainly does the job for me in my photo restoration and vintage colourization hobby 😁 well done to the creators big thumbs up 👍

    It is a wonderful app. I used it to colorize a photo of my Dad and then it got a bit emotional seeing him in color. I lost him in 1966 at 10. Very pleased with this! Only thing is the colorization is a bit spotty at times.
  • Mar 30, 2021

    By Kelsey Burgess
    Probably one of the best colorization apps out there, obviously not always right but I've had some good results. However, I wish it wouldn't crop my photos automatically and refuse to open larger files. I usually have to resort to taking a screenshot of the photo I want, colorizing that, and then combining them in photoshop. Not ideal. Same with the cropping. I wish it would take the photo as is rather than cropping part of someone's head/hair off.

    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).

    I have paid for the annual subscription and it is not letting me use it since I got my new phone. I have uninstalled it and reinstalled. I love the app but this is frustrating.
  • Good app but buggy Mar 17, 2020

    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.

    NOT quite as good as it could be, unless you buy the program!!! The company helped me as I had a faulty copy and this company cares about its customers .. SUGGESTION to make it the best... Put sliders to adjust finished picture like contrast, brightness, and hue .. Has great potential ....

    One out of nine images you process will be useable. The ones that are keepers are amazing. The artificial intelligence is mind blowing. But there’s always a hand that gets missed, while the rest of the fleshy parts are great. It’s understandable that body parts get missed Unforgivable, however, is the fact that there is no way to go back and fix whatever the algorithm missed. You can’t expect perfection from a machine. So I have to go off and find some other program to use for cleaning up the mess. Programs like Hair Color add similar tints, but the color picker doesn’t allow you to pick up colors from the image itself. The lack of frisket masks makes Hair Color worse than tinting a photo with Marshall’s oil tints on a photographic print. I’ve tried literally dozens of beautify programs to enhance the output of this software. It works great. Sometimes. The whole process is just too unpredictable. Why must developers see this as an either/or proposition???? Either machine intelligence OR human driven interface!!!! That’s completely nuts!!! Let the machine try very hard to get the job done. THEN let the human step in and clean things up. _______________________________________________ **Update** Since posting this review, all save options have disappeared. As if one out of nine photos wasn’t bad enough, now I get none out of every none.

    It does give the pictures colour but not always the right ones. I had pictures that were black and white but I also had the actual photo with colour so I wanted to see a real it was, turns out the app was really off and it didn't even give colour to the whole picture. I did this a few times but same thing kept happening. I mean only the skin tone was correct but the rest wasn't. Half of the picture was still left grey, and some others, but it does work on some spots of the picture.

    Works quite well, sometimes very well, but sometimes it's a bit of a mess. The biggest problem is the heavy cost which isn't even a one off payment but a yearly subscription. It's massively too expensive. I could stomach a one off payment, maybe, but this is just not worth the money.

    I shoot a lot on film and occasionally dabble in Black and White photography, the app works fairly well however I have found that it struggles with some colours, I had a landscape turn blue rather than green, however the camera that I use gives some distortion to the photo, so that may be the cause. Over all a very good app tho (4 stars) Edit: 2 stars, app forces you to pay for premium so scan more than 6 photos even if you clear the photos you have, very disappointing when testing the app.

    It just didn't work as advertised for me. I have had tin-type photos made which I wanted to try to colorize. The photos only partially colorized, and aside from skin tones, the colors were way off. Great idea, but poor end result. I would love to see this attempted again with better technology.

    Disappointed. When colourizing a photo it leaves part of it on black and white. It was OK when I used the free trial. Ideally I would like my money back.

    This app has flaws. Just as the trial period ended and the subscription kicked in and the app stopped working. The album created during the trial period has vanished. I have requested an immediate refund. I have experienced problems with refunds from ill-fated Google Play purchases. Exercise caution.

    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.
