About AKVIS Coloriage

Using AKVIS Coloriage to colorize a black-and-white photo is as easy as handling a coloring book. In fact, "coloriage" means a coloring book in French.

Coloring old pictures with AKVIS Coloriage is easy. Simply grabbing the pencil, selecting a color from the palette and drawing a rough outline within the area to be colorized is enough for Coloriage to do the rest. The program recognizes the borders and paints in the new color automatically, keeping the original tone transitions and enhancing them with colors. Using Coloriage requires no manipulation with layers and no manual painting whatsoever. Coloriage analyzes the original shades of grey on the black-and-white picture to produce a shiny new picture with genuine colors and natural tones.

With AKVIS Coloriage, a perfect gift for a loved one is just a few clicks away. Adding color to their memories can become an exciting gift for the older folks.

Version 6.0 adds a manual correction brush (Recolor Brush) to add that last touch to the restored pictures. The new brush can be applied after the automatic colorization to make final adjustments to the smallest details.

The new release supports EXIF and IPTC data to ensure that extra data registered by the camera such as shooting date, exposure settings, etc., as well as information and comments won’t get lost or altered.

AKVIS Coloriage is available for both Mac and Windows platforms, and comes packages as a Photoshop plug-in or as a stand-alone application. A fully featured 10-day trial of AKVIS Coloriage is available for free from the company Web site. The product costs from $97 to $246 depending on the license type.
