Convert Images to Color: Two Options



Black and White to Color

Black and white photos can easily be turned into a nice color gradient. This tool automatically switches the black pixels to dark blue or another color that is not black.

This tool can be used to:

  • Change the color of a signature. For example, if you have a signature in a PNG, JPEG, or other image format, you can change it from black to blue. Just select the background color to match the background color in your original file (usually this is white). That way, only the foreground will change — in this case, the signature.
  • Print out a black and white photo when you do not have any black ink. Use, for example, the blue ink to print an image.
  • Update the look of an image. If you have a boring black and white image and want to make it all green or blue or some other color, this online image color conversion tool works quickly.
  • Change the background and foreground colors of an image. The closer the background color is set to white, the more the background stays white. As you switch the background color towards black, the background will progressively become closer to your chosen output color.

New for 2022: Now you can change the color of a wider variety of image formats including: PNG, JPEG, JPG, GIF, PSD, WEBP, BMP, and SVG.

A black and white photo makes me think of history. But a color photo pushes the future toward today. Well, that’s a bit hyperbolic, but the point is that black and white photos can get an update by converting them to color.

What do you do when your printer is out of black ink and you really need to print?

Maybe you can use the color ink cartridge to print a substitute.

This tool converts your image so that it will print in almost-black. You can choose a number of different target colors — maybe your color cartridge is out of black and green, but it has blue or red.
