Quite often we need to use photos from the web in our presentations, blogs, brochures or websites. Looking up images online and using them is always fraught with copyright and proprietary risks. You never know when you could be sued!

Colorize Images


We all have a repository of old black and white photos. When trying to digitize them, it may be worth incorporating some color into the pictures. Colorize Images is an automatic Machine Learning based service to colorize black and white, grayscale or nightvision photos.

The black & white photos for the colorization can be selected from the gallery, or they can be shared from other applications such as Facebook, Twitter, Chrome or Google Photos. The colorized result images can be shared to the other applications, or saved into the gallery.

The service uses GPU servers to provide the colorization functionality. This means that the source images are sent to a remote location over the network, colorized there and the colorized images are then received back to the device.

You get to try out the app for free for upto 10 images and if you wish to use it for unlimited images, you need to go for a paid version.

An interesting AI tool to put some colour into your images!
