Does anyone know what kind of filters or app I can use to do this?

MS Paint. If you're really good at painting. Just kidding.
I'm not sure, but I really can't see anything being able to do that.
Doesn't look like there's enough of the picture there for anything to fix.
Probably was false advertising if something said that could be done.
I could be wrong though. Am interested to find out though.

Edit- After looking at the picture more, they aren't even the same.
Maybe the kid is, but not the same background and not even the same clothes.
Definitely fake.

This is 100% fake. Just look at the trees in the background - they are two totally different pictures.

Wow, you talk about a magic sharpening tool!

Unfortunately such an app or filter does not exist. Spending tedious time in PS you could achieve these results but not with a simple filter.

Yeah, it was the trees I noticed first, then the boys shirt has a completely different stripe pattern.

Re colorizing is technically possible with photoshop. But it's a very long and tedious job

That picture though Os completely fake as has been pointed out, the lighting is also wrong and makes the kid look partly 3d rendered, badly.

Ah now I see what makes the arms look weird, they're completely wrong, and probably are done in 3d or something. They are too skinny, and have a defined fold in the joint they shouldn't have.

Technically it's a fake but the picture is that badly damaged all the person did was keep the babies head and replaced everything else.

Also there are no filters that can do that.

I thnik only the head could be salvaged. All the rest is recomposed using a kid's portrait then copied and pasted.

With time and patience you could even do this using photoshop elements or an equivalent.

Cut the head off convert in grayscale, fixe the missing part (extrapolate) then add colored layers.

i remember this recolored picture:

I'd love to be able to do that, just fixed up an old photo of the gf's nanna and granddad and was thinking it would look great if I could colour it

How difficult would it be to learn how to do the above to a photo ?

It's not difficult, just time consuming.

You need to greyscale it, mask out each part that's a different color, and use various methods of re coloring. Overlays or tints or whatever.

That's one of the worst fakes that I've ever seen.
