We’re delighted to publish Jerry Jobe’s latest technical tutorial and this time he has created a video version using the very popular app iColorama. We are quite sure you will all enjoy and learn much from this. Over to you Jerry, foreword by Joanne Carter.
“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.
