Photograph Colorization Projects
Charles C. Chaney

Late in 2014 I thought I would try colorizing some old photographs.  The first efforts were okay if not great.  I was working with only one layer.  Once I learned how to use the layers capability of Photoshop Elements I found that the enjoyment of the projects increased.  Since that time, I am frequently colorizing photographs. Some attempts have not been as successful as I would prefer but many were.  Flesh tones and greenery (lawns, plants, trees...) are still a challenge but I plod on.  My goal has never been to emulate Kodachrome nor Technicolor.  The quality of colorization varies based upon when they were done.

Additional photographs will be added when I can produce them.
