Coloured Photograph

Post#1 by david » 07 Nov 2021, 09:52


I recently discovered that my tutorial on Gimp Chat for colouring photographs was incomplete and I no longer had a copy on my computer,
Fortunately, I was able to come to Gimp Learn and download it.

When the tutorial was written it used overlay blending mode for the colour layers (overlay, at that time was the same as soft-light). Now they are different I find that soft-light gives better results and is more controllable.

Just to prove that it still works and I am capable of doing it, I have coloured an image of Grand Duchess Olga Romanov. The lesson from this was to avoid subjects with pearl necklaces - they are a nightmare to mask!

@Krikor,

Thanks for your link to the original tutorial - I should have added that!

I have now done a re-write of the tutorial to reflect changes in GIMP and make it clearer.

David,

The new version of the tutorial has a clearer, more detailed approach to the process, which is easier to understand.

It would be nice if there was a math that would indicate the approximate feather value for each image. Something like a formula, but I don't know if that would be possible.

The biggest difficulty is (usually) in the hair; its cut and its blend with the background.

There are several techniques for coloring black and white images, I particularly like the technique exposed in this tutorial a lot!

Thx.
