    You have to convert your image back to the RGB colour space. If it is a
    greyscale image all colours will be grey. If you want to keep the file size
    down, your best bet would be to convert the image to RGB, add your coloured
    text, then to convert the image back to Tri Colour (or similar) - at least,
    that is how I'd be doing it.

    As bruce said, it must be in RGB. Also you could open a new file and select
    RGB, then copy and paste the grayscale photo into it and it should come up in
    colour, then save that with some form of compression.
