This is my first ever attempt to colourize a B&W photo and I'm not sure if my approach to doing it is correct and would appreciate your assessment of my progress so far.
This image that was likely scanned from a B&W photograph taken circa 1971. I'm working on a project to edit some of these old photos from my career in IT and have an album made to distribute to colleagues.
I doubt whether I could get a higher resolution copy of this as the photographer is unknown; the person in the photo is a personal friend.
For each colour, I created a levels layer of the selection, then clipped a solid colour layer to it (screenshot attached). It still looks a bit fake to me (especially the sweater), but I realize there are not many pixels to work with. Is there anything you would recommend adding/removing to improve it?
Appreciate your comments! Thank you!
