Colorized is a brand that represents a community passionate about bringing colorful optimism to the darkest parts of humanity through unique and high quality storytelling.
Before Colorized was created, childhood best friends, Justin Levine and Will Gwyn, founded HistoryDaily.org and GroovyHistory.com to shine a nostalgic light on the past to remind our readers that we have so much more in common than the things the news and social media like to point out that which divides us. These content brands are powered by a team of passionate writers that we all call family, and a community of millions of readers and fans on social media that results in over 10 million website views per month.
We owe the inspiration of Colorized to our loyal following who engage with our history content every day. The positive feedback on colorized history photos on GroovyHistory and HistoryDaily have been unprecedented. And to meet the excitement of our readers for the colorized history content, we have created Colorized.com.
Now our loyal readers can view their favorite history photos…some colorized for the very first time. This colorization is possible with our own unique colorizer technology that instantly allows us to see a different side to history than we have ever seen before. We are committed to posting unique stories that give a fresh look to history every single day.
In addition to great content, we are committed to delivering the most value we possibly can to our loyal readers. That is why we are providing our own colorizer application for free to anyone who wants to colorize old photos.
The initial response has been nothing short of extraordinary. With submissions of black and white photos of family members and ancestors never met before, our readers are providing feedback that some of the colorized photos have brought them to tears!
Example (Real Conversation with A Family Member Of Ours):
Give our colorizer on the homepage a try, and feel free to submit your photos to firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like us to share the photos on our homepage or social media.
