Great tutorial. I've recently started colorizing b&w photos as well. I think might share them here soon.

This may be obvious, but no one has mentioned it, so I will. That is Gregory Peck, as General Savage, circa 1949, from the movie set of "Twelve O'Clock High". Note the star on his shirt collar. Nice job on the colorization!

Very helpful!  Thanks for laying out each step.  I have CS3 so it should work, been using Photoshop since the first version but only for advertising,

used with Quark for page layout.  I've never considered colorizing using it so thanks for the great idea.  Am anxious to try it out.

This idea got me thinking I should try it.... have a lot to learn but did this in-between working yesterday and got a start.  The tutorial is a big help.

Found this photo taken in May of 1945 on Okinawa, Prv. John Drugan, I think his dog may be an Alsatian... not sure.  His features are not really German

Shepard... could be wrong.   Here's my initial try at it.



have to figure out the rocks and a few other areas but it's a decent start..
