    from what i know, its not going to be easy. u will basically have to paint on the colours manually...

    there is some aftermarket software though..

    Hi,

    The technique you mentioned is known as "hand coloring" and Katrin Eismann has a tutorial on it. If you are into retouching, you might want to borrow or buy her books: Photoshop Restoration and Retouching; and, Photoshop Masking and Composition. If possible, get yourself a wacom tablet; it will make your retouching easier.
