Photoshop Black And White To Color

Updated on November 27, 2015

Photoshop Black And White To Color

Making color from black and white is a tedious and time-consuming task. It requires a combination of over-painting, replacement and even generation of image from scratch.

Begin to get a feel by adding layers above the black-and-white photo, setting the blending mode to "Color" and painting in with a brush.

Experiment with brush size, hardness and intensity. After applying color in this fashion, you begin to get a "hand tinted" photo.

Return to the black-and-white layer and experiment with making it lighter to reduce the amount of black in your coloration.

In many instances you'll need to make selections and copy sections then "colorize" them using the Hue/Saturation dialog.
