Colorizing Black & White Photos

Learn the three different methods for adding color to black & white images. You’ll see how to add subtle color toning to make a B&W image feel warm or cool, as well as how to fully tranform an image into one that looks like a normal colot photograph. The key to adding realistic color to an image has less to do with how it is applied, then how to selectively remove it from the brightest and darkest areas of the image.

Note: One of the downloadable practice files has been compressed into a .ZIP file. You will need to double-click on that file to extract its contents before attempting to use the file in Photoshop.
