AI COLOURISATON: EVERYTHING OLD IS NOW IN LIVING COLOUR
I see a Black & White and I wanted it painted Red, Green and Blue
Here at the Caribbean Camera our photographers are always experimenting with new and emerging technologies. This week our photographer Stephen Weir used the new Artifical Intelligence App called Palette to make everything old look new again.
Weir revitalizes historic black and white photographs using Palette, an AI app. Weir experimented with this emerging technology to bring a fresh perspective to old images. Palette, accessible on Twitter through @palettefm_bot, is for free for Twitter users. One simply twitter their black and white copyright or public domain pictures to the app and it quickly transforms them into vibrant colour renditions which it tweets back to the sender.

The second picture captures a work crew expertly loading pieces of tar onto a train at Trinidad's Pitch Lake (La Brea Point), in 1910. This snapshot provides a glimpse into the labor-intensive industries that shaped the region's history over a hundred years ago.
