Title: Colorize Cutiepie?
Post by: Marydh on June 07, 2019, 04:32:21 PM
This is the original with color correction.  I'm wondering if I should turn it to black and white, get rid of the damage, then colorize  OR  fix it from here.
Thanks,
Mary

It's trivial to turn it into B&W at any point, so I'm wondering what the advantage would be of doing the repairs in B&W. Just looking at it, I think it's probably not going to make much difference in terms of your time spent either way

There's a lot to fix whatever the color, so why not start out trying it as is - if that works, you save yourself the task of colorizing it from scratch in the end.

I concur with Jo Ann.  Going down to B/W isn't going to make that much difference.

Thanks guys.  I was anxious to dive in so I just started fixing as is and itís doing fine so far.  Iím fairly sure Iíll need your advice later. 😎

Mary, looks good. I would go with what you feels works best. I'm not sure I totally agree with what Jo Ann said: "It's trivial to turn it into B&W at any point." Maybe that means as the final restore? One reason to turn into a B/W and then colorize is that you will have a hard time doing a regular color correction on this one. This is an old photo that the color has been hand painted rather than a photo that had color to begin with. I think there's a lot to be said on how you first wanted to do it as it wll allow you to repair the damage and then do the color.

I would turn it into BW, as it was originally before being colorized. Then do sepia and colorizing. Might work?
