BlackMagic is a specialist software application that can be used to "colourise" Black and White, Sepia, or IR (infrared) photos, or to colour-correct ones with faded or inappropriate colours.

The program uses state-of-the-art Neural Net algorithms to provide dynamic parameterization. This means that the user is not required to pick specific colour hues or the associated values/parameters - she/he works by simply identifying the 'type of object' to be coloured.

BlackMagic then automatically performs the needed calculations to continuously vary all required parameters, based on the content of the photograph/region being colourised - all done in the background and transparent to the user. This process ensures consistent as well as optimal selection of hue, brightness, saturation, opacity, etc. for colourising any object/region of the image, without the guess work that would otherwise have been required.

Colourising a black and white photograph that may have taken days, can now be accomplished within hours or minutes. The resulting colourised photo has optimally saturated and consistent, correct hues - the result looks just as if the photo had originally been shot in colour!
