Digital Colorization

The spirit of the past


Luiz Adams Coehlo, CODIJY User & Community Member, Brazil

I’m not an expert in that matter, but an amateur. I think it’s unfair to keep images from the past in black and white and apps like CODIJY give us the opportunity to revive our ancestry in color.


Luiz is one of the most active, live-long members of CODIJY community. Since 2016 he has colorized and shared thousands of colorized photos of vehicles, streets, movie stars and heart-pounding live scenes.  

Luiz is a devoted colouriser who has made a huge contribution to "bringing history to life". His consistent everyday efforts cannot be underestimated. His dedication is admirable, as is his work!

All of us, pros and hobbyists alike, who are just “having fun with colour” form a kind of informal yet quite impactful project of popularizing and restoring the past, making the history snapshots available in colour and making those small historic details, otherwise overlooked, noticeable to the large audience of fans, helping them remember and understand not only the local but the world history and, more importantly,  the human side of it.
