New tool to compare your colorized photograph

Now that we can colorize our black and white photographs with the new MyHeritage inColor tool (being called the greatest tech invention in a long time, and I agree!), MyHeritage has now released a cool new tool that lets you download a new Comparison photograph. Here's how to use it:

At, click on the My photos option in the Family tree menu.


Then click on one of the photos that has been colorized. The small color wheel icon in a pictures lower right indicates that the photo has been colorized.


Next, click on Download and select Comparison.


What you get is a new image file that has both the black/white AND the color photograph, side by side, for a beautiful comparison.


Here's a few more of my personal photographs that have been colorized by MyHeritage:

My 5-year-old great-grandmother:


My 4th great-grandmother, Sarah Smart:


My great-grandfather (the boy in front) with his father, uncle and aunt:


Incredible, isn't it?

If you haven't yet colorized your black & white photographs, give it a try at It's free for your first ten photographs. After that, if you have a MyHeritage Complete membership, you have unlimited access to this wonderful new tool.
