Big news to hit to genie world this week, is the launch of MyHeritage In Color. This is a new initiative created by MyHeritage that allows you to automatically colourise your old photos in seconds (and it’s FREE)!

As MyHeritage says …

“it brings your family history to life, revealing never-before-seen details — the results will blow you away!”

… and they are so right. It is truly incredible.

This feature uses the world’s most advanced technology for photo colorization, which is available exclusively on MyHeritage and is under license from DeOldify, created by Jason Antic and Dana Kelley. It allows you to do more than look at old photos — it lets you experience them, creating a deeper connection with your family history than you ever thought possible.

Moreover, as part of our commitment to preserving the authenticity of historical documents, colorized photos will appear with a special embossed palette symbol at the bottom left corner of the photo to differentiate them from images photographed originally in color. All original black and white photos will, of course, remain intact and are not changed by the colorization process.

Anyway enough explanation, here’s some samples … these were ones done by MyHeritage

And then my sample …

Incredible, isn’t it!!

To use this amazing new feature, head to the MyHeritage In Color™  page, simply upload a photo and it will colourise it for you. But just a word of warning … once you start, you WILL NOT BE ABLE TO STOP. You’ll keep finding other photos that you’d like to see colourised, and will keep playing!
