    try Adobe Elements; much less expensive that the full version and probably will do 95% of what you can do in the full program.

    Or download Gimp for free. Is the photo your working with in black and white or do you have a full colour version to work from, adding colour to a b+w only version may not work so well depending on the tones.

    I think you'll find that 95%'s a little ambitious PJ. Elements is a lot cheaper for a reason.

    GIMP's OK (as a poor relation to Photoshop) if you can get in with the strange interface.

    You might like to look at Pixlr. as another alternative. That does much the same as GIMP does and it's web based so there's no need to instal it to use it.

    Paint Shop Pro will do what you want.
    Create a layer, change to B & W, then paint over tthe area you want coloured.
