If you have photoshop you can layer both images on top of each other e.g black over colour and delete out the parts you want colored.

One of the ways of doing this, may not be the best.. :sweatsm:

Picasa is your most straightforward way to do it.
Not the best compared to layers and masking in PS, but should get the job done in many cases.

yep picasa is the simplest.

I stumbled upon a free taiwanese program at keniu.com. it has fun edits that can glamourise your portrait photos and also has some basic functions. The selective color is also available better than picasa as you 'paint' back the areas you want color and the rest are in black and white. You can also use the same technique for selective blur etc.

catch is the menu and options are in chinese so you have to figure out the functions.
In case you're interested to use this, you can use "打开" to open your photo, and find the selective color function (局部彩色笔) under the "编辑" tab.

Good luck in your gift to your sis, it's mighty nice of you!
