Colorizing Old Photos, Part II

A few years ago I found a way to colorize old photos and posted my first attempts.  Colorizing Old Photos They were not perfect, as I will be the first to admit, but I was excited to show the potential.

I have since colorized a few more photos and would like to share the latest one here.  I think it looks much more natural than my earlier attempts.  It helps that the photo was simple and the features clearly defined. 

This is my grandmother's graduation photo from Kalamazoo Central High School in 1936.   

I encourage you to try this yourself.  It really brings the people in old photographs to life.
