MyHeritage offers photo colorization for free

GOOD NEWS! MyHeritage is offering a wonderful way to spend your time in social distance and sheltering in place. You can now colorize ALL of your black & white photos for FREE during a limited time. Here's the press release:

"MyHeritage is offering FREE and unlimited access to MyHeritage In Color™ from March 23 to April 23, so that people everywhere can join in the fun of colorizing their black and white photos. Ordinarily only 10 photos can be colorized by users who do not have a Complete plan, but now, you can colorize as many photos as you’d like for free.

"Colorizing photos is the perfect activity for anyone who is isolated at home. We invite everyone to pull out their family photo albums, colorize their photos, and start reminiscing. Over the coming month, anyone who shares their colorized photos on Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram with the hashtag #ColorBeatsCoronavirusBlues and tags @MyHeritage will enter a weekly draw. Each week we’ll select one lucky winner who will receive a free MyHeritage Complete subscription!"
  • King Genome's Tip: A small number of you may be worried about what MyHeritage is doing with your precious photos. Are they stockpiling them (pun intended)? Well for those of us with MyHeritage accounts, the photos are stored in our photos archive. However we can download and delete them at any time. Still worried? Then only upload photos you're not so guarded about.

Do take care, and be safe and sanitized.
