The other day I stumbled over #DeOldify on Twitter, where I saw amazing highlighting of black and white images. Everything done automagically with the help of deep learning. Since I myself have a bunch of old black and white pictures of my family, who are 100 + years old, I was eager to test this. And there were many of you too, so I did this little cheer.
The picture depicts my grandfather's uncle Petrus outside our old family house in Söderhamn. The top picture depicts my grandfather's mother Agnes with her two friends. Both pictures are from around the 1910s.
Right now I know too little about the project to write about it, but if you want to read more, you can find it on GitHub at
How do I get started?
The only thing you really need is that the image you want to colorize is online. In the example I show, you cannot upload an image, but you must have a link to it. If you do not have access to your own web server, you can use services like Imgur or similar.
Otherwise, by and large, it's just to click and wait. So now we go!
Browse and follow the instructions in the movie further down in this post. In short, it is about clicking on the play button (which pops up) inside each  as in the picture below
until you reach the section where you enter the URL (link) of your image file. I have tested jpg and png and both of these work.
In the film below, I have shortened the charging times so that the film would not be too long. Some steps may take a few minutes, so grab a coffee and recharge with a little patience.:)
NOTE! If you want to color multiple images, you don't need to redo everything in the movie for each image, but the final step is enough to enter the URL into the image and press play.
That's not working!
If you're having problems, put a comment here or on social media, and I might be able to help you.
Running on your own hardware?
Of course, you can run this on your own hardware, instead of on Google's. On GitHub there is all the info on how.
