MyHeritage In Color: Updated Photo Color Restoration!
So, MyHeritage is at it again; they just updated their MyHeritage In Color colorization tool once again! As always, it is a hit and miss, but if it’s a hit, then the colorization is outstanding! It took me a while to realize that if you have the same picture in your MyHeritage Photo Album already, the colorization does not work out as well, and sometimes reverts to their old version. It works much better if you delete the photo in your album first, then upload a fresh one. Also, if you colorize, then enhance a photo, the color may be different. That can also be said for photos that you colorize many times; each instance may be slightly different or have a huge difference.
Tip: It works much better if you delete the photo you already have in your album first, then upload a fresh one
Check out some photo comparisons from when they first rolled out in 2020, updates in 2021 and their new updates for 2022 below!
As you can see from this "Cousins" photo I enhanced and colorized in 2020 and again in 2022, the colorization/restoration is more fine tuned. In the first photo, the colorization was new and clothes ( and sometimes faces, features, etc.) were a mix of blacks and reds. In the second photo, colorized and enhanced this year, 2022, the colors are more of what they should be; it is still just a little off, but hard to tell.
Here you can see a huge difference between 2020 and 2021, and a subtle difference between 2021 and 2022.
As you can see in the comparison of these photos of my paternal great grandparents, the hues are much better in 2022. The leaves are more green, legs are not black, and the clothing doesn't have a puple hue to it.
I'm not quite sure what's going on with my 4th great grandfather, haha.
My grandmother turned out fantastic from an old paper copy that was cropped!
They are letting anyone try it for FREE until the 5th of February (it started on January 24th )! Not only do you get to try it for free, but you get to try out as many as you’d like, unlike when they first rolled this out in 2020, and you only got to test 5!
