Improved colored nerve filter in the 2021 Photoshop version

In the last few weeks, Adobe announced its latest Photoshop Update for May 2021. as well as the rollout of the update. The new version not just Adobe has introduced new neural filters like the depth blur but also has enhanced the already existing filter “Colorize filter”.

The Colorize filter was introduced in the month of October, 2020. Since its release, the filter has improved quite significantly. It comes with lots of features that are new, such as different color profiles, control of the saturation of colors, lessening the noise and improving the colors of skin tone.

In this course we’ll show you how to apply this filter to create a neural network. It will be tested until it’s at its limits, determining where it performs the best and areas where it could use enhancement. We’ll get started with the lesson.

Step 1 – Colorize Neural Filter

To get access to the Colorize Neural Filter To access the Colorize Neural Filter, visit filter > neural filters:

Because this filter processes information stored in the cloud You must download the data by hitting the download icon in front of the filter.

Install and download it:

Step 2: Colorizing Black and White Image in one-click

When the download has finished after which you are able to click the Colorize Button to turn on the filter. It does its work to enhance any black and white photo.

Once you have run the filter, it’ll upload images to the cloud and will colorize the image like the picture below.

Step 3. – Prioritize on the Points

This filter will allow you to alter the focal points in the photograph. It will also allow you to select the color of your image using an edit point.

Click on the “Click To Edit” Point or Focal Point screen to pick one of the focal points. You can see, I’ve chosen a faces to enhance the color of it.

However, instead of just working on the face, the image has been added orange-colored across the whole image.

Step 4. New Features

As of October, 2020, it was not equipped with Saturation and Noise Reduction, nor did it have Reduce Color Artifacts and Profiles. They’re all brand new filters added by Adobe in their May 2021 upgrade.

Saturation, and Reduce Noise are easily explained.. Saturation regulates the intensity of colors while Reduce Noise minimizes the noise of photographs.

Reduce Artifacts in Color addresses the artifacts that caused by JPEG compression. If you’ve compress your JPEG image, but it caused the loss of sharp pixels, it is possible to use this feature to eliminate these jagged pixels or artifacts that appear in your image. This is usually the case with black and white images.

Profiles is one feature which stands out for me. It’s akin to Color Lookup tables, it includes a set of retro profile defaults that can be used for retro effects on the photo, and there is an adjustment slider of the profile intensity that adjusts the opacity and transparency of the profiles. In this case, I chose Retro Faded profile. retro Faded profile, with the Profile Intensity at 29.

Step 5 – What Should You Do Next?

Once you’ve colorized a photo with this filter, you are able to use the control at your hands. It is possible to make edits to the photo manually.

The right side of the subject seems like it’s been over-saturated. It’s almost all red.

I made use of the following technique: new Adjustment Layer Hue/Saturation to muffle reds to a certain extent.

If you would like a certain portion of your photograph to be colored manually, it is possible to utilize this Color Blend mode to do this. I’ve colored the pant, shirt and the background with the Color Blend mode.

Create a new layer, paint it using a gentle circle brush (make sure that you choose the color that will colorize area of the picture) Then, switch the blending mode to Color.

Step 6: Previous Update vs New Update

When the filter first introduced, I reviewed the filter in an article about the Shift art filter. The photo I tried was exactly the same one that I’m currently using for the video tutorial.

It is possible to see the effects from the prior Version of the filter back when it first appeared when you look at the photo it appears that this version of Photoshop will improve the quality of this filter:

Step 7 – Test with non-black/white images

To test the accuracy of the filter, I test the filter using an image that’s not black/white.

I’ve picked a photograph that I have turned black/white after removing the color. It is possible to put a black/white adjustment layer over the layer stack in order to erase the color of an image.

Next, I tried through the Colorize Neural Filter, to test the effectiveness of this filter. As you can see, it was pretty good on the skin tones, but did not colorize other hues.

Below you will see the complete comparison view. I’m not 100% sure, however I suspect the filter is trying to bring orange tones to the picture, or is it attempts to make the image more colorful using the highest priority skin tones.

Absolutely requires lots of work. Also, object recognition in the filter is much more challenging.

Step 8. Works Well With Portrait Images

Instead of providing the filter with an extremely complicated photo to be colored, I tried the filter on a few photographs, and I have to say, it performed amazing work. It doesn’t require me to alter setting.

You can see here that I applied the filter to an image:

This is the very first instance:

In my opinion, it seems that you could employ this filter for photographs since the filter is less complicated in enhancing the color of your image. I hope that you have enjoyed this instruction. Please let me know if are unsure or have ever tried to colorize your black and white image.
