    the only way to correctly make a photo color is from the negative (not the reverse color option in photoshop, the things your get back with your pictures after they've been developed)

    now don't get me wrong, but it might be possible to do it in photoshop using the Image > Adjustments > Hue/Saturation then colorizing, to retain depth. but it would be diffucult to get the colors just right

    yea, I knowwhat you mean,
    Its just that I had a look at a good picture, and yes, one could tell easily about the convertion, but still , it was good.

    This should help you out with your question, and familiarize yourself with Photoshop more in the process. Stuff like this is a snap once your comfortable with PS

    ya that could work, but it wont have that much definition.
