Colorization Made Easy (by Keb)
Colorization Using Gradient Maps
I am by no means a master at colorization and this
method is by far not the quickest but it is the method
I use. I will attempt to show you how I colorize by making one layer of color. To completely color a grayscale
image, just repeat steps 2 thru 5. Sounds simple, right?

This step you only do one time. After selecting a grayscale image to colorize, it must be set to RGB Color mode. When selecting a source, choose the highest resolution and sharpest image you can find. Colorizing an airbrushed face will not look like a color photo. We are going for photo realism so choose a good source.
