Stunning Animated GIFs Colorize Vintage Black and White Photos

Photographs are a link to the past, and with advances in technology, we're able to colorize what was once only in black and white. The Dutch website NSMBL recently shared a collection of images that show the "before" and "after" of digital colorization. That alone is interesting, but better yet, the process is revealed in the form of animated GIFs. Vintage monochromatic photos come alive with hues right before our eyes.

Color is gradually added to each image, as if someone is taking the eraser tool in Photoshop and wiping the gray away. Iconic figures like Albert Einstein and Martin Luther King, Jr. receive this special treatment, as do portraits of everyday life. Underneath reveals scenes that suddenly have a new sense of spirit, and we're better able to appreciate just how much energy can come from a color image.
