Recolor your photos with Colorize to create amazing new artwork and effects!

Most selective coloring apps give you 2 choices: gray or original color. You can choose nearly any color with Colorize.

"Could be likened to what Techno-Color did for the Wizard of Oz" -

"One of the most mind-blowing photo editing experiences on the iPhone" -

• Choose nearly any color, original color, or gray (desaturate)
• Pinch to zoom in/out for pixel-level precision editing.
• Fix mistakes with Undo and Redo.
• Precise control over brush size and softness
• Amazingly FAST and responsive, even when editing high resolution photos up to 16 megapixels.

• Use colorful photos for best results.
• Try the included samples for practice.
• By design, Colorize preserves the original color strength for realism, so it works with color photos only.

Does not paint everything :(

What it does, it does well.
But there are often areas of a picture that it will not paint into, like the Alpha channel is only partially there. It’s either great or half great. Also the color choices are very limited without gradients.

Have been using this app in my iPhone for 2+ years and love it! It has plenty of color choices that allow the user to create a lot of surprising effects.

Not impressed

The app really doesn't work well. I was coloring a picture of the house. The white garage door showed almost no change in color when drawn on no matter what color but the green lawn was easily colored red or yellow. Didn't really make sense why some things worked well but most color changing did not change it at all. If it were free I would have been unimpressed and for 2 bucks I am even less impressed.
