I presently have over 8,000 images on MyHeritage.com. The vast majority of these are in black and white. You can see from this one example above how much impact the colorization process can add to your own photos. For about the next month, MyHeritage has opened up MyHeritage In Color™for free use to colorize an unlimited number of photos even if you don't have a subscription to the website. Of course, when you see the benefits of a subscription, you will probably want to subscribe. Here is the announcement that I received by email.
Here at MyHeritage, we want to do our part to help the genealogy community keep busy and even have some fun during these challenging times. That’s why we’re giving all users free and unlimited access to MyHeritage In Color™, our new feature that automatically colorizes black and white photos, for an entire month. Ordinarily only 10 photos can be colorized by users who do not have a Complete plan, but now, you can colorize as many photos as you’d like for free.Like many others around the world, I am in "social distancing" and staying almost exclusively at home. Here is a further comment from MyHeritage:
Colorizing photos is the perfect activity for those of us isolated at home. It gives us an opportunity to look again at our old family photos, bring them back to life, and reminisce. The results can be shared online with the whole family, which will delight your relatives and evoke warm memories. We invite you to pull out your family photo albums today and join in the fun.Try it now.
There is also an added incentive for colorizing your own photos. Here is a little more explanation about what is going on.
Over the coming month, anyone who shares their colorized photos on Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram with the hashtag #ColorBeatsCoronavirusBlues and tags @MyHeritage will enter a weekly draw. Each week we’ll select one lucky winner who will receive a free MyHeritage Complete subscription. They’ll enjoy free access to all content and features on MyHeritage including 12 billion historical records, Smart Matches™, Record Matches, Instant Discoveries™, and much more.Enjoy MyHeritage In Color™ for free until April 22, 2020.
