Follow in the footsteps of some of the world’s leading designers, and learn how to colourise old photographs to bring them into the modern day. Historical photos, in their black and white form, have a certain nostalgic feel attached to them, but by adding colour using Photoshop, you can visualise the colourful life that existed, even when colour photographs didn’t.
