Colorizing old photos just got a lot easier!

 

Do you want to colorize an old black and white photo with one click? The Colorize Neural Filters feature in Photoshop uses the power of Adobe Sensei to quickly colorize your photos. If you want different colors than the ones selected, you can simply select areas and pick alternate colors.

❶ Choose Filter > Neural Filters from the main Photoshop menu 

 

❷ Download the Colorize filter from the cloud (if you see a cloud icon by the filter name)

 

❸ Enable the filter and adjust the sliders

 

❹ Modify the colors (optional)


❺ Select an Output option and save

 

That's all there is to it! To learn more, see Use Neural Filters to colorize photos quickly

and check out this video: How to Colorize Photos in Photoshop - #PHOMO.

I remember back in the day I used to use the Lasso and just my mouse.  Crazy wild how far Photoshop has come since 1994.

Great feature and I was using it to restore old family photos.  I went back into the program to do a new picture and the Colorize button was gone and said I needed to download again.  Tried but it just goes away and won't allow the download.  Any idea's?  I have the latest version etc. and have been using it fine up to yesterday.   Everything else seems to work fine.
