B & W Colorization project

example of colorizing a B&W photo

Adding color to a black and white photograph.
Adobe Photoshop is a very powerful image editor that can bring life to otherwise dull and unexciting photos. Using the tools and features of the software, a photographer can take his or her pictures to the next level and produce professional-looking images.
In this project, you will learn how to use the selection and coloring tools of Photoshop to add a splash of color to a black and white photo. The overall goal is to bring a dull photo back to life by accurately coloring the components to make them seem life-like.Choose a black and white image and use the refined selection tools of Photoshop to carefully select particular areas and add color. Be sure to add each color on its own layer just in case you need to make adjustments later on. Leaving several colors on the same layer (especially the background layer) can result in you having to start your project all over again!
This tutorial only applies to adding one color. Your pictures will have multiple color layers added.
