Katenka, it seems your link could be very useful, thanks !!
I have just found a french website about the Romanovs, and there are few colored pictures... I know some were made by Holly because of the watermarks on them but I saw credit to her nowhere...

Here it is
This person has also made others websites, each one dedicated to one of OTMA; it seems the title on the coloured pictures she posted were written with Paint..That's why I am starting wondering that's weird... These websites are also in French...
Olga's Life
Tatiana's thoughts
Maria's dreams
Anastasia: le mythe
and Beautiful OTMA.

I would be very surprised if Raegan Baker (who is a longtime member here) did not get permission to use that colored photo for the cover of Olga's dairy. That said, I've just looked through my copy of the book and there's no indication as to where that colorization came from.

FYI: It's my understanding that Raegan Baker had NO say in nor control over the cover image on Olga's 1913 diary. (This is standard procedure in publishing.)

However, I've just spoken with Lanie and she confirmed that is her colorization, and that Gilbert's Royal Books did NOT request her permission to use it.

She's having trouble loading the AP forum today, but she's grateful to you guys for spotting her work.

I have also found several coloured pictures done by AP members in a Czech magazine History revue.... They simply download them from internet...

Yes, if you search at Google, you find many and many coloured pictures ...When I started discovering for the Romanovs, I saw so many coloured pictures that I thought they were the real  version pictures of the Romanovs ...

Thanks, everyone, for alerting this to me.  I'm visiting at home so the forum loads!

There has still been no response.

I'm excited about the diary but upset that GRB, from whom I've bought lots and lots of books, did something this unprofessional (and perhaps illegal).  And it wasn't even a good picture!  You'd think they'd pick a better one!  ;D

There are only three (one, by Emily, one by Isabel, and little Tatiana don´t know by who) stolen pictures, but I didn´t get it. Is this girl playing a game or what? Why all the names and dates andrealtionships are wrong?

Funny fanfiction page...what isnt funny is that she/he stole pictures of Angie and other people over here

Hols, is that the same link as the Loyal to the Romanovs from first post? If so Madison did that to Mandie as well, especially when it was clearly Mandie's colorings on her page.  I found it so odd. What an attention mmmm pony.
