Nicely done Alex. Dostler's facial expression says it all.

 

Here is one of mine showing elements of Inf. Rgt. 19 at a rail siding somewhere in Poland.

 

Cheers,

So much talent it's unbelievable! You really bring these photos to life. I have tried to color photos on occasion but they never quite turn out fine. I use Gimp which isn't the best. But I noticed the grain on the wood and the various shadows on the SS Cap picture and it blew me away. The way you colored the marble floor is also jaw-dropping because for me that would have been an impossible task to do.

 

May I save them onto my computer?

 

Cheers, Patrick

Hi Patrick, thanks, I have no problem with you saving them, at least you asked (many don't and my colourisations have appeared on numerous other sites without my knowledge). With regards to colourisation, it's really a case of practice, after a while it does become quite easy, faces are the hardest thing to make realistic.

 

A few more

 

Rudolf Hess

Otto Dietrich and an unknown SS man, this is so "Over the Top" I had to colourise it.

Hi all and thanks, Patrick I had Gimp, but it didn't suit me, I actually work with a very old version of Photoshop, it's version 4.0, this was developed for operating system Windows 95!, I have upgraded my operating system through Windows 98, Windows 2000, XP and am currently on Windows 2007. For the technically minded, Photoshop 4.0 is 16bit software, XP was 32bit but would operate 16bit, so no problem, Windows 2007 is 64bit and it tells me it can't run 16bit software but it does for some reason, admittedly a few tools won't run but I never used them anyway, they are sort of Gimmicky. It's not a quick fix colourising software, but has the ability for you to use your brains and accumulated expertise to produce some really good stuff, I am quite happy using it.

 

Some of my later work
