That's so interesting to do the colorization, it's like giving the second life to an old photo.
Thanks to inspyretash-stock for the great vintage portrait, lady Esther Ralston looks gorgeous.
I want to give her a quite modern looking with highlighted hair and some make-ups.
Basically what I've done is exactly the same as this tutorial: http://www.planetphotoshop.com/colorizing-a-grayscale-image.html
The only difference is I used one top layer with overlay blending mode to control the lighting because the BW image neutralizes some parts of the colored image.
I just show in SBS the comparison one by one of the original one and the colorized one, plus the work in progress in animation.
Since it's the vintage photo, I can't have the higher resolution version, but the quality is not that bad. (5 years and 2435 days ago)
