Hand-coloured photographs were most popular in the mid- to late-19th century before the invention of colour photography and some firms specialised in producing hand-coloured photographs.

More recently, digital image processing has been used – particularly in advertising – to recreate the appearance and effects of hand-colouring.Austrian Baron Raimund von Stillfried und Ratenitz, trained Japanese photographer and colorist Kusakabe Kimbei, and together they created hand-coloured images of Japanese daily life that were very popular as souvenirs.Hand-coloured photographs were also produced by Kusakabe Kimbei, Tamamura Kozaburō, Adolfo Farsari, Uchida Kuichi, Ogawa Kazumasa and others.Despite their downturn in popularity, skilled photographers continued to create beautifully hand-coloured photographs.Hans Bellmer's hand-coloured photographs of his own doll sculptures from the 1930s provide an example of continued hand-colouring of photographs in Europe during this time.

Colourisation is now available to the amateur photographer using image manipulation software such as Adobe Photoshop.
