iPhoneography Apps – Colorizing B&W images with iColorama

I recently responded to an art challenge by colorizing a black and white photo in iColorama, and was asked several times how I went about it. The video tutorial this week goes through the process of creating a different image, the one seen below.

It’s an image of my late mother, taken sometime around 1950. Before colorizing, I retouched the photo using Touch/Retouch and a bit of Simplify and Coherence within iColorama. Below is the original image, before both retouching and colorizing.

As I say in the video, I use iColorama for this process – but you can use any app that allows you to mask a layer and apply a flat color in Color blend mode.

Please let me know if you have any questions about the techniques used. Enjoy!
