MyHeritage In Color™ is Now Free and Unlimited for One Month!


Starting today we are unlocking MyHeritage In Color™ for unlimited use to give people who are isolated at home a fun way to pass the time and enjoy genealogy. Colorized photos can be shared with the whole family, and can help you see your historical family photos in an entirely new way, highlighting aspects you may not have noticed before. Many of our users have found the feature addictive — some have reported that it’s kept them up late into the night as they colorize any black and white photo they can get their hands on!

Ordinarily only 10 photos can be colorized by users who do not have a Complete plan, but now, you can colorize as many photos as you’d like for free, until April 22, 2020.

We invite you to pull out your family photo albums and join in the fun. Colorize all of your black and white photos, for free for a limited time, at If your photos are stashed in old albums and have not been digitized yet, now’s a great time to scan them with the free MyHeritage mobile app, and upload them to MyHeritage next to your family tree. If they are already on MyHeritage, you can colorize each photo by visiting it in your family site or through the MyHeritage mobile app. Our previous blog post explains how to do this.

Share your colorized photos to win

Over the coming month, anyone who shares their colorized photos on Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram with the hashtag #ColorBeatsCoronavirusBlues and tags @MyHeritage will enter a draw. Each week we’ll select one lucky winner who will receive a free MyHeritage Complete subscription. They’ll enjoy free access to all content and features on MyHeritage including 12 billion historical records, Smart Matches™, Record Matches, Instant Discoveries™, and much more.

Whether you find yourself with more spare time than usual, or just want to take advantage of this excellent opportunity, we hope that you enjoy this fantastic tool.

Stay safe and keep healthy!

    What a shame free colorizing has finished. I thought it was free for the duration of the pandemic. Darn it!
