Automatic Colorizing Test

May 25, 2016

LargeSense cameras are currently monochrome, and while later color will be offered, it would be nice to convert some images to color. A friend sent me a link to code that automatically colorizes images. http://richzhang.github.io/colorization/#perform_comp

It is a neural network trained on a million images and it is amazing that it can work without any help. It can do rather well but it is not high quality colorization. It is more of an entertainment kind of effect.

Here are some colorized images:
