Have You Tried The MyHeritage In Color™ Tool?

In 2020, MyHeritage announced their new MyHeritage In Color tool. In just a matter of seconds it can colorize black and white photos. I used this tool to colorize a black and white photo of my mom. She was eleven years old when this photo was taken.

Here is the black and white photo of my mom. By the way, I absolutely love this photo.

And here is the colorized photo.

MyHeritage's tool also includes an Enhance and a Repair feature. You can see those features in the photo at the top of this post. I decided to try the Repair feature on the colorized photo of my mom. Here it is.

I then decided to add the Enhance feature to my mom's photo and here is the result.

For some reason, the color of my mom's blouse became discolored in several areas. However, the Enhance feature did improve the photo by eliminating the pixelation in the original photo. The original photo is a rather small jpg file at 146 KB.

What do you think? Which version of these colorized photos do you prefer? Have you used the MyHeritage In Color tool? How did it work on your photos?

I really do like this tool and appreciate being able to colorize black and white photos. It's really fun to see this adorable photo of my mom in color. Thank you MyHeritage!

  1. Hi Jana,
    I have used the Color tool as well and by and large I am satisfied with the results. I feel the tool creates more "depth" and brings more "life" in whatever is shown. On the other hand, I am also hesitant to use the tool. The reason is that somehow I feel I am falsifying history. It is a feeling that is hard to explain but probably it has to do with the knowledge that color pictures did not/hardly exist at the time. Still, I feel the tool works well. It provides the kind of colors one expects.
    Krgds, Peter
