APC Christmas Card 2013 - 1A

Welcome to American Photo’s photo blog. We colorize black & white photos for museums, media, multi-media, and families like yours. Our online Photo Gallery features 100s of colorized vintage images available for purchase. These images are HD-quality, and can be enlarged to at least 18″x24″. They look beautify when framed or mounted as a canvas wrap.

A visit to our website gets you started:

The year is 1850. A stylish young lass poses for her portrait. As the British would have said, “She’s posh“. A Brooklyn dockworker might have expressed it so eloquently, “That goil is one classy dame”.

To create the colorized portrait, it was necessary to remove the frame from the image and extend the background a bit. This helped bring the focus to the girl’s face. Then color was added. Unlike the layers of color method used by so many amateur and semi-professional colorizers – our color creations are done as if one was painting on canvas – using the mouse as a brush. This gives our photos a unique appearance – with greater color detail and life-likeness than people are used to seeing in Photo Colorizing.
