This is a very impressive colorisation program which produces remarkable results with an absolute minimum of fuss. Detailes turorials are supplied along with examples to practice on. With Recolored you can colorize black and white photos, replace colors in color photos, perform selective desaturisation and selective colorisation with great ease. The colors are grouped into categories such as skin tones, hair colors, metals, wood, grass, fabrics and many more. Individual custom colors can also be selected.

Basically you outline, with the color you want, parts of the photo you wish to colorize/replace click a button and the software does the rest bringing up the result in a new window. If you don't like the result just close it without saving and your "work" copy reappears where you can change colors as many times as you like until you're satisfied. You can then print the result from within the program.

I produced some excellent results within an hour of installation and received some glowing praise from the recipients who kindly lent me photos to play with.  Recolored is a standalone program and not a plugin so you don't need expensive image editors.  It is very definitely well worth the money and they offer a 21 day trial.
