    You have done an absolutely great job with image coloring. I am totally impressed, it would be great if you can share the whole process with us as well.

    I imagine there is a boatload of black & white images that people have done over time using the equipment or technology available. Ive recently learned a way to colorize and I do just that with images I find on the internet or those of my old family pics I scan. I checked out New River Graphics and find them to be a hit and miss thing. Some good jobs and some abysmal. Id like to find the Calamity Jane pic to compare it against my interpretation, but it seems its not available. Usually if I see a colorized image I wont bother trying it. But that will also depent upon the image. If Im interested I will color it anyway. Like the images of Sophia Loren Ive done. Thanks for your input Oddzilla.
