A fascinating project to colourise old photographs featured in thejournal.ie over the weekend. Insight@NUI Galway’s John Breslin has been using software called Deoldify to bring new life to black and white photos. The project has gained a devoted following across social media and the results are fascinating. Breslin sources photos from the National Library of Ireland, the National Folklore Collection and the US Library of Congress. You can read the full article here.
