Never underestimate the power of color. Seeing old family photos go from black and white to brilliant, painterly hues can be an emotional gift for grandparents and other loved ones, but colorization is still a fairly specialized process. Or at least, it was until CODIJY. This easy and intuitive photo editor lets anyone recolor and add their own personal style to monochrome pictures, and it’s now on sale at a price anyone can afford.
Even if you haven’t used Photoshop or other editing tools before, CODIJY makes the process simple and fun. You start coloring photos right away in the brief tutorial, then work on your own with tools that are easy to manage. Any image can be colored realistically with the software’s “magic pencils” that can change some areas and preserve others. The boundary detection is first-rate, and you can select from pre-set color libraries that are specific to the natural hues of skin, buildings, or natural surroundings. After you’re done, photos can be exported in almost any popular image format.
A lifetime license to CODIJY Recoloring 4 Plus is now $15, which is more than 75% off the original MSRP. It comes with a key for unlimited home use on two devices, plus free updates to future versions of the software.
