InstantPhotoColor 1.0 freeware release.

January 11, 2012Comments Off on InstantPhotoColor 1.0 freeware release.

Many people have asked for an easy way of coloring a black and white or grayscale photo. Sure, it can be done in most generic photo editors but it will require some effort and skill. In order to make this task simplier we’ve created another freeware tool – InstantPhotoColor.

It is probably the simplest photo tool ever Рyou do most of the work using the so-called coloring brush, which colorizes the photo beneath into the specified tint. But it still can  help you a lot in coloring the photo or changing some parts of a colored photo.

Have fun!
