How it works

Easily Add Color to Your Black and White Photos

Bring new life to old photos by automatically colorizing them using the Algorithmia API. It's as easy as pasting in a URL above.

We're excited to introduce cloud hosted deep learning models on Algorithmia. The Colorful Image Colorization microservice is a computer vision algorithm trained on a million images from the Imagenet dataset.

This microservice is an implementation of the Colorful Image Colorization algorithm created by Richard Zhang, Phillip Isola, and Alexei A. Efros.

Built For Developers

A simple, scalable API for machine intelligence


import Algorithmia

input = {"image": "_IMAGE_URL_"}
client = Algorithmia.client('_API_KEY_')
algo = client.algo('deeplearning/ColorfulImageColorization/1.0.1')

print algo.pipe(input)


{"output": "data://.algo/temp/image.png"}
