Historic Photos Colorized

Historic photos in colour are most popular these days and just to look at them again in colour is new experience all together.

It’s a painstaking undertaking to color these historic photos with such perfection and didn’t distort the original in the making.

The major contributors are a mix of professional and amateur colorizers that bring historic photos to life through color. All of them are highly skilled digital artists that use a combination of historical reference material and a natural eye for colour.
