Despite all the useful software tools available these days, photo restoration and colorization is still a painstaking process that can take countless hours to do right. Thankfully, there are services like THS Photo Restoration & Colorization, which not only repairs and updates old photos, but creates fun timelapse videos like the below, showing how it's done in just a few minutes.

Under the video, you can see the amazing before and after shots. To see more of THS' handiwork, here's a Civil War-era image that's also had an impressive restoration and colorization job.
