Ancestry now has photo colourisation
7th July 2022

On June 2, 2022, the Ancestry Team announced the launch of its photo colourisation (or colorization) feature. This feature has been available on other major sites for some time now, but Ancestry had kept this tightly under wraps.
To use the colorization feature on mobile, simply click into an image and tap ‘Edit’. On the Ancestry website, click the wrench icon and then ‘Edit Photo’. Using the multicolored ‘Colorize’ icon, you can see the colorized photo in comparison to the original. Even after you save the original, you can always revert back to the original–so you never have to worry about losing the original image.
