Colourised Photographs

The colourised photographs service is a process that adds colour to black-and-white, sepia, or other monochrome images. The colourising of photographs has been around for many years becoming particularly popular during the 1920s before colour photography became widely available.

New colour prints can be made to the same size as the original (or larger if required) using Fuji Crystal Archive DPII Professional papers with a choice of lustre, pearl or glossy finishes. The Fuji paper offers the widest colour gamut, maximum density for deep blacks and excellent colour saturation.

Adding Colour

After the original image or document has been photographed or scanned, it plays no further part in the process. No work is carried out on the original image itself and it is not sent away to a photographic lab. Once the image has been colourised, a preview copy can be emailed for approval before the final image is sent off for printing. Partial colourisation is also available where colour is just required in a specific area of an image.

Based in Consett, County Durham, Richard Flint Photography has over twenty-five years of Photoshop experience with copied images, artwork, and documents delivered to clients throughout the UK.

Photograph Colorizing Prices

  • Choice of print paper finishes
  • Tracked Postage Included
Photo Colourisation for larger photographs

  • Choice of print paper finishes
  • Tracked Postage Included

Technical Details

All prices include some minor technical retouching of images: i.e removing minor dust and hair marks, etc

Images larger than 12×10 can be difficult to scan due to the physical size of the print and the limited availability of large-size scanners. A more cost-effective solution can be to photograph the original image with a camera. This provides a good quality copy of the original print image without the need for expensive scanning.

Orders by Post

If you would like to send photographic prints, negatives or slides via the post, these can be sent via a secure recorded/tracked or next day special delivery service. The work usually takes around 7 days, though it can take longer depending on the level of work required, with the original and new copy returned using Royal Mail’s next day tracked special delivery service. A tracking number will be supplied so that the items can be followed through to delivery. Emails are sent on arrival on the original photos via post and also when they are dispatched back so the client always remains informed.

Digital Delivery

Digital images may also be sent via email or a file transfer service i.e Dropbox, WeTransfer, etc.
