    Hi Chuck,

    Yes, you have to convert it from Greyscale to RGB or CMYK. Then I found the easiest way to color sections of the images is to use Chanel Mixer w/ monochrome checked and then brush what you want colored. There is an easy to follow tutorial here: [url]http://webdeveloperpost.com/Articles/Black-and-white-photo-with-color.aspx[/url]
